What is QuickShop?

As you may understand from its name, QuickShop is an application that is supposed to help people while they are shopping online. It claims being able to enable comparison shopping and providing people with the best deals, discounts, coupons and similar things. Yes, it really delivers various commercial offers. However, we highly do not recommend trusting QuickShop ads since they are sponsored and linked to affiliate websites. In reality, this application is an adware or a potentially unwanted program (PUP), which main intention is not to help people save their time and money, but to earn the money for its developers. The biggest problem is related to the methods that the developers of QuickShop virus employ for increasing their financial profit. First of all, you have to beware that this ad-supported extension is distributed using misleading 'bundling' method, which tricks lots of people into installing this app along with various freewares and sharewares. In addition to that, it is set to deliver lots of pop-up, pop-under, banner, in-text and other forms of advertisements. They are, usually, marked as 'Ads by QuickShop', 'QuickShop Deals', 'Powered by QuickShop' and so on. Despite the fact that most of them seem reliable and may really reroute to reliable online shopping websites, some of them may be linked to suspicious third-party websites used for spreading unpopular or even malicious software. In addition to that, this adware is also used for tracking people and collecting information related to their browsing habits. Information, such as search terms, mostly visited websites, data entered and time spend on them, PC's IP address and location, email address, and similar information may seem useless for you; however, third parties may use it for affiliate marketing. All in all, QuickShop adware is useless, to say the least. Therefore, you should eliminate without any delay. Run a full system scan with Reimage and remove it right away.

How can QuickShop hijack my computer?

QuickShop is a suspicious application used by third parties in order to generate pay-per-click revenue, increase page ranking and sales for affiliate websites. Lots of companies seek to gain such profit and it's normal. However, adware-type programs are often related to suspicious third-parties or even cyber criminals and may try to gain such profit by means of people's cyber and private security. Thus, it goes without saying that you should stay away from such programs, including QuickShop virus. Speaking about its distribution, you have to keep in mind that it's commonly added alongside various freewares and sharewares, such as download managers, PDF creators, media players, etc. in order to reach a wider audience. That's why people frequently install such and similar adwares without even being aware of them. In order to avoid QuickShop redirects and other issues that it may cause, you should be very careful with every freeware that you are going to install. Since it's not known what freewares are complemented with this adware, whenever you decide to install free software select Advanced or Custom installation option and check if it's not filled with additional components. If you notice a check box claiming that you accept to install a browser add-on, plug-in, toolbar, or extension, unmark it without any hesitation.
