See Similar is a potentially unwanted application causing continuous redirections to shopping websites when visiting Amazon, Walmart and similar sites. From the first glance, this adware may look like a helpful application, which actively tries to show you those sites that sell the same items you want to buy for less. However, it can also make you visit totally misleading websites that seek only to increase the number of their visitors. Beware about that. Besides, See Similar has also been reported for its unfair distribution method, which is based on other programs. If you haven't downloaded this program consciously, we recommend removing See Similar from your computer. You should do the same if you are bored by its continuous pop-up ads and notifications.


See Similar can be downloaded from those sites that promote it. However, it can also get inside the system in a bundle with other programs. In most of the cases, that's freeware and shareware that includes See Similar to its components list. However, it has also been reported about some adwares that are also included to the distribution of it. We highly recommend staying away from Genius Box, WebCake, Superfish, SpecialSavings and other applications. As soon as it gets inside, See Similar drops its own add-on on all Internet browsers that are installed on computer. In addition, it starts showing its pop-up advertisements that notify about various coupons, discounts and other deals. Beware that this program can also be set to track your browsing habits and share this data with the third parties.

Besides, you should also look for these programs and, if detected, uninstall them as well: Genius Box, WebCake, Superfish, SpecialSavings, Online HD TV Toolbar: Online HD TV, PutLockerDownload, TornTV, Yontoo, 1ClickDown, 1ClickDownloader, FB Photo Zoom, GoPhoto.it, HDvid Codec, IB Updater, Incredibar Toolbar, OneClickDownload, OneClickDownloader.
