What is Shamanul?

Shamanul is yet another adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If these terms do not say anything to you, first of all you have to know that apps belonging to these categories are associated with third parties, affiliate marketing, and should be avoided. By the way, programs are categorized as PUPs due to the fact that they spread using misleading methods the most common of which is called 'bundling'. It means that Shamanul and other adware-type programs may infiltrate your computer along with another free program. If it has already got inside, you should remember what freeware you have recently installed and remove it along with Shamanul virus. If you started seeing 'Ads by Shamanul' on each of your web browser, we recommend you to scan your computer with a reputable anti-spyware, such as Reimage because these advertisements may be sponsored and set to reroute people to questionable websites. You may think that you will not get tricked by this because you never click on ads that appear online. Unfortunately, Shamanul ads may appear in such a huge flow that it may be difficult to surf without clicking on them. In addition to that, you should consider privacy-related issues because this adware-type program may use cookies and monitor you and your web browsing habits. Shamanul virus may collect your search queries, websites visited, data entered, time spent on certain websites and so on. By the way, your email address, IP address, geographical location and similar info may also be collected and used for tricking you. Thus, try to stay away from programs like this and if it gets inside suspiciously, make sure that you eliminate it as soon as possible.

Beware that all these issues are implemented with an intention to gain financial profit via affiliate marketing. In fact, it could be ignored if all these activities would not disrupt web browsing sessions and would not pose harm to your cyber security. Since operations, that Shamanul virus is set to implement, do so, we highly do not recommend ignoring the presence of this adware on your computer. In general, you have to stay away from this program. In order to do that, you have to be very careful with every freeware that you are going to install. For that, select Advanced or Custom installation option and carefully check every notification. Try to find 'additional components' that may be indicated as add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, and extensions. NEVER accept to install programs that are offered to you in addition because usually they appear to be suspicious adwares, browser hijackers or other PUPs.
