What is eDeals?

eDeals is a very questionable application that is presented as a tool that is supposed to help people find the best online deals and coupons when they are surfing thru online stores. Although that sounds like a great application, you should be very careful when having it installed on your PC. If you have already did that, you may know why we say so. For those who still think that eDeals is helpful we will say that this program has already been labeled as adware and potentially unwanted program. As soon as it enters computer, it may not only show you annoying pop-up ads. It may also track your online activities and cause redirects to unknown, unsafe and questionable websites. 'Ads by eDeals' and similar pop-up notifications may be extremely annoying because they may start appearing no matter what site you visit and what your intentions are. Besides, this questionable program may even cause slow downs on each of your web browsers and may also negatively affect your browsing experience. If you have already downloaded this PUP on your PC, we highly recommend you to read this article to end and find even more information about it. You will know how this program travels around and how can you eliminate it from your computer. Unfortunately, similar adwares are very common these days, so the best way to avoid them is to install a reputable anti-spyware.

How can eDeals hijack my computer?

It looks like this unwanted program may rely on a distribution technique that is called bundling. In other words, eDeals virus may travel bundled with various freewares, sharewares and other free programs. This method is rather effective because not many internet users are closely checking what programs they download and install. Keep in mind that majority of freewares have such ad-supported attachments. We can give you a couple of helpful tips on how to install free programs in order to avoid similar adware. Firstly, find as much information as possible about your desired program. Read comments and reviews from other people. Secondly, read end user's license agreement (EULA) part. Usually, this information is crucial if you want to understand if your desired program is supported by advertising, or it has any unwanted attachments or features. Thirdly, if you are installing a doubtful program, you should follow the entire installation process. If you do so, you will clearly spot such unwanted attachments as eDeals virus.
