Lucky Leap is a potentially unwanted application, adware, virus, which is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and other browsers. The main reason, why we decided to write about this program, is that it tends to show annoying pop-up notifications every time users start browsing on the Internet. Typically, they are displayed when visiting shopping sites, such as eBay, Amazon and others, but they may also interrupt you when on other domains. Besides, sometimes Lucky Leap gets inside computer without a clear notification because it relies on unfair distribution methods.

HOW CAN Lucky Leap GET INSIDE COMPUTER?

Yes, you can download it from such sites as cNET, but it may also get inside your computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware. According to our sources, 1ClickDownload, Superfish, Yontoo and FBPhotoZoom distribute it, so read License Agreement and opt-out unknown additions, such as toolbars, add ons and similar things when downloading these programs on your computer.
