What is CoolincCheap?

Every Internet user is at the risk of adware infection when installing free software on a computer. We believe that all of them at least once have been tricked into installing an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and already know how annoying they may appear. However, if you have noticed CoolincCheap add-on working in the background of the system and does not even suspect where it came from and what is it's purpose, beware that it's an adware that has probably slithered onto your computer via another freeware. Don't worry, it's not malicious. However, it's still not recommended using due to suspicious operations that it may be set to implement. Once it gets inside, it seeks to take over all most popular web browsers (IE, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and drop its extension on each of them. This way, CoolincCheap virus may access your web browsing history and monitor websites that you visit, search queries that you enter, data that you enter and so on. Consequently, third parties get acquainted with your likes, preferences, hobbies and interest and according to them prepare personalized 'Ads by CoolincCheap'. If you click on them, third parties generate income via pay-per-click system, manage to reroute you to predetermined websites and increase their rank. However, the problem is not related to the income that third parties generate with your help. The problem is that some of CoolincCheap ads may be managed by suspicious third parties who may seek to spread other potentially unwanted programs and for this purpose embed questionable installers in those ads or redirect you to the websites filled with questionable content. By the way, you should not blame your computer if you have started experiencing serious system slowdowns. If CoolincCheap virus is inside, it may cause such issues due to which you should have no doubt that this adware needs to be removed. For that, try using Reimage.

How can CoolincCheap hijack my computer?

CoolincCheap is a suspicious web browser add-on that may land on your web browser suspiciously and make you feel confused. Once it does so, you may start noticing sponsored advertisements, experiencing redirects and other suspicious operations. Beware that this app may be used for affiliate marketing and may reroute you to suspicious websites and even trick into installing suspicious programs on your computer. In order to prevent its installation, you have to beware that it commonly spreads around the net using 'bundling', which is a misleading marketing technique inseparable from various freewares and sharewares. In other words, you have to be very careful when installing free software because it's commonly bundled with 'additional components'. Consequently, people who do not pay enough attention to the installation process of various freeware are frequently negatively surprised after discovering the whole list of programs on their PC's instead of one. To avoid that, you should always select Advanced or Custom installation option (instead of Quick or Basic) and monitor the entire process. Try to find add-on, plug-in, toolbar or extension that may be set by default and make sure that you unmark it. Otherwise, an adware may be installed automatically and start causing you inconveniences.
