What is GorillaPrice?

GorillaPrice is a nasty program that can easily initiate havoc during your browsing sessions. Most importantly, it may start showing you continuous alerts and pop-up advertisements that may be filled with links to unknown, suspicious and even malicious websites. If you have already noticed ‘ads by GorillaPrice’, ‘GorillaPrice ads, ‘brought to you by GorillaPrice’ and similar commercial content during your browsing, you should be concerned because it means that this adware is already hiding in your PC system. For more information about its distribution method you should check the next paragraph. Besides, once Gorilla Price virus infiltrates the system, it may alter settings of each of web browser, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc. After that, you may start dealing with continuous slow downs, pop-up ads, redirects and similar issues. That’s why there are many security experts who have included this application to the category of ‘adware’ and a ‘potentially unwanted program’.

To sup up, you should be especially careful with this program. No matter that it is stated that GorillaPrice can be used for comparing products’ prices when visiting Amazon, eBay and similar websites, you should try to be careful with it. As you may have already understood, this program can also be used to earn the money from affiliate marketing. Besides, it has been revealed that it may start tracking its users and may collect data about their browsing habits and other activities on the Internet. We don’t think that you should agree with that. If you want to avoid privacy related issues and other annoying or sometimes even dangerous activities, you are recommended to remove GorillaPrice from your computer. The easiest way to do that is to run a full system scan with updated anti-spyware and remove what it detects. You can easily use Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego or other reputable anti-spyware for that.

HOW CAN GorillaPrice hijack MY COMPUTER?

GorillaPrice uses two different methods when it tries to get inside the PC. The first one involves its official website and needs you to visit it and click the ‘download’ button. However, this program can also infiltrate the computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware. In this case, you should always pay attention to the list of components when downloading freewares on your computers. The easiest way to do that is by selecting Custom or Advanced installation method when installing such programs as download managers, PDF creators and similar freeware. No matter which method this program uses for getting inside the system, it may affect each of your web browsers. As a result, it may start showing different kinds of ads that are based on Yontoo platform. If you are bored by notifications that belong to this program, GorillaPrice redirects and similar unwanted activities, you should eliminate this app from your computer. For that, we recommend using the guide given below:

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer various losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Software issues created by malware or direct data loss due to encryption can lead to problems with your device or permanent damage. When you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work.

It is crucial to create updates to your backups after any changes on the device, so you can get back to the point you were working on when malware changes anything or issues with the device causes data or performance corruption. Rely on such behavior and make file backup your daily or weekly habit.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware occurs out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the system restoring purpose.

    Revo might work, but not everyone wants to spend money on a piece of software they might use one time. I use the IObit uninstaller, because it locates hidden registry entries after the program is uninstalled. Unfortunately, it wasnt able to delete gorillaprice, but a method such as booting in safe mode (which is what I did) or booting another operating system then deleting the files should work on any Windows computer. A quick search through your hard drive should show where the file is located (remember the file name is misspelled grillaprice.exe). In Windows Safe Mode or an alternate OS delete the entire directory where the program is located. I used CCleaner, another good freeware program, to check my registry, and it found links to gorillaprice uninstallation. One thing Im unsure of is how the program started up at boot if there was no direct registry entry or startup link. It beats me, but at least the irritation is gone.

    I spent several hours trying to remove this software and it nothing worked. I thought about it for a while and decided to try a low-tech solution and it appears to work (see everything I tried after this suggestion).

    I noticed I couldnt uninstall the program, delete the files or stop the GPI64Tool.exe process in Task Manager – it would shut down and then start up again in a few seconds. In processes, I did not have permission to stop the GorillaPrice or watgorp processes. Getting frustrated, I decided to do a little misdirect of my own:

    Find all of the locations on your hard drive where Gorilla Price is located. Do a search on C: for GorillaPrice.exe and GPI64Tool.exe. You should discover them in C:Program Files (x86)GorillaPrice and C:UsersAll UsersGorillaPrice. You might need to change your Windows Explorer settings on the root directory so that you can see all program files (uncheck “hide protected system files,” check “show hidden files, folders and drives”). To get there, go to C: and click “Tools – Folder Options” and then go to the “View” tab.

    Now, once you know where these files are, simply change the extensions to something that no longer works. For example, I changed the “.exe” to “.exx” and the “.dll” to “.dlx” I even changed the picture files. Why does this virus allow you to change the file extension while it does not allow you to delete the file? I have no idea, but once I changed the file extensions and rebooted my computer, this is what I discovered (with no problems on boot-up).

    1 – GPI64Tool.exe was no longer listed on my Processes tab under Task Manager (use CTRL-ALT-DEL to get to Task Manager)
    2 – GorillaPrice and Watgorp were listed under the Services tab on Task Manager but right-clicking on them seemed to indicate that they werent running. Previously, I would right-click and hit “stop service” and was denied. Now, “stop service” is ghosted out and “start service” was an option (no way was I going to try that).

    I just did this a couple of hours ago and I havent seen anything that indicates its running. Im keeping my fingers crossed.

    Now, here are the other things I tried:

    1 – Microsoft Security Essentials – Didnt notice a thing was wrong
    2 – Malwarbytes – Found some other adware but didnt notice Gorilla Price (also tried their root kit beta program)
    3 – Uninstall Gorilla Price from programs – Sends you to a web page that provides you with an exe file that is supposedly designed to remove Gorilla Price, but Ive heard its a virus that will be immediately be quarantined by your virus software
    4 – Deleting the Gorilla Price program files – Access was denied
    5 – Tried to stop the process and services related to this program – Was either denied (in the case of the services) or the process just started up again, like magic.

    Good luck

    Hi Greg – I am not able to rename the files through Windows or through cmd.exe

  8. Margie says:
    December 4th, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    Thank you Greg – this is a gold mine. I have also spent many hours this afternoon trying to get this beast off of my sons computer (no idea how it got on). So, in renaming the files, it stopped running but the code remains on the system … correct?

    December 10th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    Gregs above fix works to neutralise the programs but does not remove them from the system but as long as they do not boot up then they will not take effect. I managed to change the file extensions by editing my folder options and unchecking Hide file common types (or something along those lines. Press F1 for help on your keyboard and type change file extensions if you want a simpel step by step guide.
    GorillaPrice or WatGorp no longer show in processes and are stopped in the services list.

    Restart in Safe Mode (F8). Open Windows explorer go to the Gorilla Price folder probably located in Program Files (x86) Delete the entire folder. Reference to it remains in your Control Panels uninstall section, but the program is gone.

    Reboot in Normal Mode.

  14. Corey Finney (Exalted Dirt) says:
    November 4th, 2014 at 3:05 pm

    Yes, this is a valid method. Apparently its not possible to shut down the program because it automatically restarts itself, so it cant be deleted once it starts up at boot. My task manager showed the program popping up simultaneously to shutting it down. Another forum post not related to this program suggested the Safe Mode deletion technique. After I deleted the directory and its contents, I used CCleaner to check for and delete any registry entries as well after gorillaprice was deleted. Its a freeware program that has proven very useful for me, since I download and test (and uninstall) a lot of software. Be careful if you want to try it (CCleaner) though. If I remember correctly it asks you to install other software, so choose the custom installation.
    StopZILLA does not work for gorillaprice, and I doubt any other antivirus/malware program will. SZ found over 100 potential threats on my computer, but it didnt recognize gorillaprice. IObits Malware Fighter recognized it, but it was unable to destroy or quarantine it because of the fact that the program cannot be shut down.
    I am curious what others say about this. The program was hidden in my Windows Media Player directory inside a directory called grillaprice.

    I have tried this, but nothing works. On my computer, its not an extention – its an actual program. When I click “uninstall” it brings me to GorrillaPrices site, with a link to download GorrillaPrice Uninstaller. Notron scanned this and declared it unsafe. How can I remove it?

    Had the same problem. Fortunately I have a dual boot with Linux so booted into Linux & moved the Grilla Folder from program Files to Trash & deleted it there.
    Went bank to Win XP & removed the Registry Entries in Software.
    Also ran Task Manager Gone! & does not show on Control panel list of Software.
    This site requires me to post a number at bottom of page think was the same as Gorilla wanted in their phony deletion page ???
    Hope this page is not another Trojan horse.

    The “sc delete GorillaPrice” worked for me but the “sc delete WatGrop” said it failed….

    I also deleted it out of regedit awhile ago…
    I now cant use my internet explorer or Google chrome on my computer….

    I have tried everyones idea… I know am contacting McAfee to see if they can help.
    Anyone else have suggestions for me besides restoring back to factory settings or back before I got this shit on my computer?
