What is OnlineLowDeals?

It's yet another adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that is used for generating income for its developers. That's why we can even claim that OnlineLowDeals is useless. Beware that it may infiltrate your computer in a suspicious way using 'bundling'. It is distributed in a form of a browser add-on that can work on all most popular web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. If you have already started seeing 'Ads by OnlineLowDeals' out of nowhere, you should check the list of programs and find out the ones that have been recently installed. We believe that you will find one or even several programs that you are not familiar with and haven't installed intentionally. In this case, we recommend scanning your computer with a reputable anti-spyware, such as Reimage and eliminate all suspicious applications from your PC because it seems that you have been tricked into installing a bundled software. Be careful because OnlineLowDeals virus is set to drive visitors' traffic to predetermined websites and in this way increase page ranking or sales. However, OnlineLowDeals ads may also be linked to suspicious websites visiting of which may even lead to virus or malware infection. In addition to that, it's not recommended to keep this adware on your PC for long since it's capable of collecting personally non-identifiable information about your browsing habits.

How can OnlineLowDeals hijack my computer?

OnlineLowDeals may infiltrate computers along with various freewares and sharewares. It may be disclosed as a browser plug-in and may be added along various download managers, PDF creators, media players, media players, etc. as an additional component. Beware that such and similar additional components are always set by default and get installed on computers unless the user unmarks them during freeware's installation. In order to do that, it's a must to select Advanced or Custom installation option and carefully monitor the entire process. Investigate every check box and make sure that your selected freeware is free of browser add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, and extensions. Beware that such 'optional downloads', usually, appear to be potentially unwanted programs, such as adwares or browser hijackers. Thus, if you want to prevent various inconveniences on your computer, be very careful when downloading and installing free software.
