Why Coprofit is running on my computer?

Coprofit is a cross-browser plug-in that can run on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE, Opera or any other web browser. According to its developers (not specified), this tool is a shopping helper that can increase your savings by providing information about the biggest sales, discounts, coupons, and similar things. Howeber, Coprofit plug-in is deemed as adware, Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), and is known to be working as a browser hijacker in some of the cases.

If you have noticed Coprofit plug-in enabled withing your web browser’s extensions list, set as a default start page or coprofit.exe running in Task Manager, then you have either installed this application believing that it will improve your web browsing or received it without realizing that. The second case is more frequent because Coprofit adware is frequently distributed via software bundles attached to free programs as an option. If you have recently installed a freeware and performed its installation using ‘quick’ or ‘express’ installation, then we stand with 99% that the reason why Coprofit virus is running on your PC is careless installation of a freeware.

Questions about Coprofit Ads

If Coprofit adware is lurking on your computer, you should delete it immediately. This can be done manually (the instructions provided in the Page2) or automatically (using Reimage or another malware removal tool). If you wonder why ASAP Coprofit removal is recommended, we will provide you with the evidence collected by security experts that proves the fact that this plug-in is more than useless.

  1. Coprofit malware misuses CPU memory and makes web browsers to run in a sluggish manner. It goes without saying that slow browser gets on nerves and disrupts web browsing activities.
  2. The plug-in is filled with web beacons, HTTP cookies, and other software that is used for data collection. In other words, this adware is used as a tracker for tracking PC’s IP address, approximate geo—location, email address, pages viewed, data typed in them, and so on. Collection of such information helps third parties to improve affiliate marketing.
  3. The application may also practice JavaScript for displaying sponsored advertisements (pop-up ads, banner ads, interstitial, textual links, new tab ads, etc.). Cnsequently, once the plug-in is executed, web browsers start generating advertisements that may be tagless or marked as “Ads by Coprofit,” “Coprofit Ads,” “Broguth by Coprofit,” and similar. The ads go beyond annoyance, believe us.
  4. Some of the Coprofit pop-up ads may be quite aggressive and potentially dangerous to your PC’s security. Such ads may inform you about missing software updates (Java, Flash Player, Media Player, etc.), urge to call for remote technical support, and so on. DO NOT get fooled by such offers because they are usually used for spreading malware and potentially harmful software. In the worst case scenario, Coprofit redirects can cause virus infiltration.
  5. Coprofit virus commonly spreads bundled with redirect virus. Consequenty, you may find this URL set as your default start page, search provider, and a new tab window window.

Download free apps from reliable sources only and opt for Advanced or Custom installation mode (NOT quick/basic/express). After that, keep an eye on each installation step and deselect additional all optional downloads. This way, you should avoid Coprofit hijack.
