What is EarnSale?

Developed by WebPick Internet Holdings Ltd, “Earn Sale” is a dubious web browser add-on that is compatible with all most popular web browsers. Therefore, it does not matter if the user opens Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or any other web browser, the operations that this app is capable of causing will be apparent on each of them. Security experts have already labeled it as an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If it manages to infiltrate the system successfully, people start seeing it's main executable earnsale.exe working on Task Manager continuously. Besides, they may receive a lot of commercial advertisements (pop-up, pop-under, banner, in-text ads) that are typically marked as 'Ads by EarnSale', 'EarnSale Deals', 'Delivered by EarnSale' and so on. This way, developers of this program get the ability to redirect people to predetermined websites, increase their rank, sales, collect clicks and so. However, security experts warn that advertisements brought by adwares should not be trusted since they may reroute to deceptive third party websites filled with misleading or even malicious content. Therefore, we highly recommend you to remove EarnSale virus, as well as its clones, such as SmartWeb, Hit-Buzz, OptiShopper, etc. using Reimage Reimage Cleaner or another reputable anti-spyware. By the way, people have to be cautious because such programs may cause leakage of information. Adwares are commonly complemented with cookies that are set to collect personally non-identifiable information (search terms, websites visited, data entered and time spent on them, IP address, PC's location, email address, etc.) about your browsing habits. Unfortunately, no one guarantees that sensitive information will not be collected as well.

How can EarnSale hijack my computer?

As most of the adwares, EarnSale can be installed on the Internet manually. It may intrigue people who prefer online shopping since it promises to deliver messages about the latest deals, discounts, coupons, price comparisons and similar things. However, it may also be installed alongside Cnet, Softonic or other similar third-party installers. In fact, well-known and trustworthy installers, as well as the ones that are not reputable can carry EarnSale adware as an additional component. Such distribution, which enables developers of this app transmit it without asking for user's permission is called 'bundling' and is by far the most frequently used PUP distribution method at the moment. Wide usage of 'bundling' is not difficult to explain. Freeware developers does that for monetization purposes. Fortunately, you can prevent installing potentially unwanted programs quite easily. For that, you have to select a customized installation option all the time (Advanced/ Custom installation) since it discloses all available check boxes and allows deselecting 'optional downloads' (add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, extensions). It's not recommended to select Quick, Basic or Recommended installation since it may install aforementioned components without informing users about them. Don't forget that additional components are always set by default and may be disclosed in a misleading manner. If your web browser has already been flooded with EarnSale ads, ignore them and check your PC with a reputable anti-spyware right away.
