What is Dollar Keeper?

Dollar Keeper is a web browser plug-in that is supposedly set to enhance user's web browsing experience while shopping online. If you have already dealt with such and similar browser add-ons before, probably you already understood that it's one of those programs that claim being able to save time and money by enabling comparison shopping. No matter how attractive such promises may seem, beware that it's just an empty promise. In fact, it is another adware and potentially unwanted program based on JustPlugIt engine. It may flood each of the website that you visiting with commercial advertisements that neither match your interest, not deliver useful deals. 'Ads by Dollar Keeper' may flood websites on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer and in this way not only disrupt your web browsing activities, but may also pose harm to your computer's security.

However, you should beware that even links to corrupted and malicious websites may be embedded in those ads. Therefore, you should better hurry up to eliminate Dollar Keeper virus in order to avoid visiting suspicious websites unintentionally. By the way, we recommend removing this app automatically due to the fact that it may have installed cookies that track you continuously and which may need separate removal.

How can Dollar Keeper hijack my computer?

Dollar Keeper is a typical adware. If you have dealt with such a program some time before, probably you already know that the most common distribution technique is called 'bundling' and is closely related to various freewares and sharewares. To be more precise, third parties that seek to distribute their advertisements and promote affiliate websites pay money for freeware developers. Consequently, developers of freewares fill their software with additional components and spread them in one pack. It needs to be mentioned that freeware developers seldom check add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars and extensions that are added and do not monitor the content that they are set to promote. That's why we say that 'Ads by Dollar Keeper' may reroute you unknown or suspicious domains. To avoid this from happening, you should prevent infiltration of this adware. For that, you just have to select Advanced or Custom installation option whenever you are installing freewares and opt out of additional components that your selected freeware may be filled with. In case you have already failed to opt out of unwanted programs, including Dollar Keeper, when installing freeware, you should take needed actions and fix your computer now.
