GorillaPrice is also known as Gorilla Price | Type: Adware

GorillaPrice is a nasty program that can easily initiate havoc during your browsing sessions by showing continuous alerts and pop-up advertisements that are filled with commercial content. Besides, it tends to get inside computers not only from its official website - it can also come inside the system without an appropriate user's permission asked in a bundle with other programs. That's why there are many security experts who have included this application to the category of 'adware'. Basically, GorillaPrice can be used for comparing products' prices when visiting Amazon, eBay and similar websites. However, it can also be used to track its users and collect the data about their browsing habits. If you want to avoid privacy related issues, you are recommended to remove GorillaPrice from your computer.

HOW CAN GorillaPrice GET ON MY COMPUTER?

GorillaPrice uses two different methods when it tries to get inside the PC. The first one involves its official website and needs you to visit it and click the 'download' button. However, this program can also infiltrate the computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware. In this case, you should always pay attention to the list of components when downloading freewares on your computers. No matter which method this program uses for getting inside the system, it affects each of the web browsers that are installed on the PC. As a result, it starts showing different kinds of ads that are based on Yontoo platform. If you are bored by notifications that belong to GorillaPrice, you should eliminate this app from your computer. For that, we recommend using the guide given below:

HOW TO REMOVE GorillaPrice?

What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by GorillaPrice:

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads
•  Redirects to unknown and suspicious websites
•  Changes in homepage and default search engine
•  Decreased speed of every Internet browser

The "sc delete GorillaPrice" worked for me but the "sc delete WatGrop" said it failed....

I also deleted it out of regedit awhile ago...
I now cant use my internet explorer or Google chrome on my computer....

I have tried everyones idea... I know am contacting McAfee to see if they can help.
Anyone else have suggestions for me besides restoring back to factory settings or back before I got this shit on my computer?

Thanks

Had the same problem. Fortunately I have a dual boot with Linux so booted into Linux & moved the Grilla Folder from program Files to Trash & deleted it there.
Went bank to Win XP & removed the Registry Entries in Software.
Also ran Task Manager Gone! & does not show on Control panel list of Software.
This site requires me to post a number at bottom of page think was the same as Gorilla wanted in their phony deletion page ???
Hope this page is not another Trojan horse.

I have tried this, but nothing works. On my computer, its not an extention - its an actual program. When I click "uninstall" it brings me to GorrillaPrices site, with a link to download GorrillaPrice Uninstaller. Notron scanned this and declared it unsafe. How can I remove it?

Restart in Safe Mode (F8). Open Windows explorer go to the Gorilla Price folder probably located in Program Files (x86) Delete the entire folder. Reference to it remains in your Control Panels uninstall section, but the program is gone.

Reboot in Normal Mode.

Gregs above fix works to neutralise the programs but does not remove them from the system but as long as they do not boot up then they will not take effect. I managed to change the file extensions by editing my folder options and unchecking Hide file common types (or something along those lines. Press F1 for help on your keyboard and type change file extensions if you want a simpel step by step guide.
GorillaPrice or WatGorp no longer show in processes and are stopped in the services list.

Thank you Greg - this is a gold mine. I have also spent many hours this afternoon trying to get this beast off of my sons computer (no idea how it got on). So, in renaming the files, it stopped running but the code remains on the system ... correct?

I spent several hours trying to remove this software and it nothing worked. I thought about it for a while and decided to try a low-tech solution and it appears to work (see everything I tried after this suggestion).

I noticed I couldnt uninstall the program, delete the files or stop the GPI64Tool.exe process in Task Manager - it would shut down and then start up again in a few seconds. In processes, I did not have permission to stop the GorillaPrice or watgorp processes. Getting frustrated, I decided to do a little misdirect of my own:

Find all of the locations on your hard drive where Gorilla Price is located. Do a search on C: for GorillaPrice.exe and GPI64Tool.exe. You should discover them in C:Program Files (x86)GorillaPrice and C:UsersAll UsersGorillaPrice. You might need to change your Windows Explorer settings on the root directory so that you can see all program files (uncheck "hide protected system files," check "show hidden files, folders and drives"). To get there, go to C: and click "Tools - Folder Options" and then go to the "View" tab.

Now, once you know where these files are, simply change the extensions to something that no longer works. For example, I changed the ".exe" to ".exx" and the ".dll" to ".dlx" I even changed the picture files. Why does this virus allow you to change the file extension while it does not allow you to delete the file? I have no idea, but once I changed the file extensions and rebooted my computer, this is what I discovered (with no problems on boot-up).

1 - GPI64Tool.exe was no longer listed on my Processes tab under Task Manager (use CTRL-ALT-DEL to get to Task Manager)
2 - GorillaPrice and Watgorp were listed under the Services tab on Task Manager but right-clicking on them seemed to indicate that they werent running. Previously, I would right-click and hit "stop service" and was denied. Now, "stop service" is ghosted out and "start service" was an option (no way was I going to try that).

I just did this a couple of hours ago and I havent seen anything that indicates its running. Im keeping my fingers crossed.

Now, here are the other things I tried:

1 - Microsoft Security Essentials - Didnt notice a thing was wrong
2 - Malwarbytes - Found some other adware but didnt notice Gorilla Price (also tried their root kit beta program)
3 - Uninstall Gorilla Price from programs - Sends you to a web page that provides you with an exe file that is supposedly designed to remove Gorilla Price, but Ive heard its a virus that will be immediately be quarantined by your virus software
4 - Deleting the Gorilla Price program files - Access was denied
5 - Tried to stop the process and services related to this program - Was either denied (in the case of the services) or the process just started up again, like magic.

Good luck
