What is Friday Frenzy?

Friday Frenzy is a misleading application that is distributed using numerous of unfair methods. The most popular one is called 'bundling', which means that this browser add-on seldom travels alone and usually infiltrates computers by means of other freewares and sharewares. Usually, it is promoted as a useful tool that is capable of surfing the net and finding the best deals, the latest discounts, coupons, price comparisons and similar things and delivering them for people when they are visiting such websites as Amazon, eBay, Walt Mart and so on. That's why people quite frequently accept to install it as an additional component along with another free software. However, before accepting it, we highly recommend you to read comments of other users and search for the information about it on the Internet. You will see that various security vendors have already labeled it as an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP), whereas various discussion forums are filled with people's reports about 'Ads by Friday Frenzy' that appear in a very annoying manner and flood not only online shopping websites, but also other sites despite their content. In addition to that, you have to be aware that all offers, deals, coupons and other things that Friday Frenzy virus claims to deliver are sponsored and predetermined. It means that Friday Frenzy ads are set to reroute you only to affiliate websites and try to convince you that they offer you the best deals. That's really unfair, isn't it? Unfortunately, some of the websites may even be managed by some bad guys who seek to spread virus or scam you. So after buying something there, you can experience serious privacy-related issues, or may find a malicious program inside. Not forget to mention that Friday Frenzy may continuously monitor your online activities and send information to remove control servers. Since adwares can start acting very unfairly, you should not keep this one on your computer as well. Run a full system scan with Reimage Reimage Cleaner and eliminate it right now.

How can Friday Frenzy hijack my computer?

Friday Frenzy is an ordinary adware that can infiltrate your computer in two ways. First of all, it can be found on its official website and installed willingly believing that it will enhance your online shopping experience. Unfortunately, in most of the cases it spreads around alongside various freewares and sharewares. We believe that the list of misleading freewares that tend to distribute 'optional downloads' would help a lot. However, to prepare such a list is barely possible because those freewares and constantly changes their attachments, refuse to distribute them and some time later again accept to spread other PUPs. Due to this fact, beware that your PC's security is all in your hands. To avoid installing bundles, you should always select Advanced or Custom installation option and monitor the entire process carefully. It's very important to find all 'optional components' and opt out of them because otherwise you can be negatively surprised after receiving an excessive amount of ads, experience redirects and so on. In case you have already noticed Friday Frenzy virus on your Add/Remove Programs list, do not hesitate and get rid of it immediately. For detailed instructions see below:
