Dealnj is an adware program that appears on the computer as a browser extension and a .exe file as well. This questionable software claims to be an excellent online shopping assistant that can help to deliver latest great e-shopping deals and other shopping related offers to you. Do not get tricked by such wonderful description – although it seems that Dealnj seeks to enhance your e-shopping experience and maybe save some money, in reality it hardly fulfills these proposals. Let us explain what Dealnj is and how it works.

Dealnj adware is a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Our research team has been working on spyware research for many years, and we can say that NJ ads had just recently appeared on the market, and it is a newbie to the spyware category. Nonetheless, Dealnj ads are as untrustworthy as any other adware’s ads are. Supported on Windows XP, 2000, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Mac OS X, Chrome OS, and Linux, Dealnj virus can spread its ads widely.

Now, why do you have to avoid clicking on ads by Dealnj even though they seem so useful?

Questions about Dealnj ads

Exactly – these ads just SEEM to be helpful. If you click on them, you would be thrown on random and suspicious third-party websites. Dealnj is a free application, so it does not ask money from its users. However, this program actually uses users to GAIN money from its affiliates. It is done through pay-per-click advertising system. Basically, Dealnj attaches its extensions to the victim’s Internet browser and tracks his browsing habits. Therefore, it obtains information about user’s interests. Then it picks particular advertisements from its servers and sends them to the user. These ads by Dealnj look attractive and catchy, so some computer users fail to recognize their falseness and click on them. As a result, they may get redirected to suspicious or even dangerous web domains that are completely not associated with the ad content. You should know that Dealnj gets revenue for each of such redirect. Unfortunately, not all Dealnj redirects can lead users to reliable pages. Some of the pages you might get redirected to can carry infectious contents and ask you to download suspicious apps, so refuse to install any suspicious material. If you have noticed “ads by Dealnj,” “Dealnj ads,” “Powered by Dealnj” and similarly named ads, we suggest scanning your computer with Reimage anti-spyware program and remove dubious computer parasites like Dealnj.

    these ads were covering my screen by randomly popping up, it really costs nerves, believe me. So hard to get rid of them! and closing them does not help, too. It took me a while to realise that I need to google up this problem. This article was really good – thanks for the help.
