removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - - | Type: Adware

Are bothered by intrusive ads on the web every day? Do they pop-up on your screen unexpectedly and interrupt whatever you are doing at that moment? Do you see many banners placed on the websites that you visit? If so, you probably had installed an ADWARE program some time ago. Today, we are going to describe a program of this kind, named Savers Junction. So if you have already noticed “ads by Savers Junction” or “Savers Junction ads” on your screen while browsing the web, we strongly recommend reading this article.

Why do ads by Savers Junction appear on my screen?

Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways to easily earn money on the Internet. However, it is usually done in an unfair way. People create ad-supported programs and distribute them with other well-known free programs, with an intention to make the user install their products without realizing it. It is not a fair way to distribute software; however, it is considered to be a legitimate distribution technique. However, we recommend avoiding programs that are spread in this indirect way. Savers Junction adware is deemed as a potentially unwanted program (PUP), and after a close investigation, we have found out why is it classified this way.

Questions about Savers Junction ads

Despite the fact that Savers Junction PUP may enter your computer without your permission, it does some other highly suspicious activity without your agreement given. When it is installed and active, it touches all of your web browsers and adds a Savers Junction extension to them. This extension supervises everything you do when you browse online – it tracks what links do you click on, what search terms do you use when you look for some particular information, also what websites do you save to your bookmarks and what websites do you visit the most.

Based on this information, Savers Junction adware selects ads from its server. Then it places them on your screen in a form of pop-up ads or banners. Needless to say, these ads are quite annoying, but what is interesting is that these ads are fake. They are only composed to look catchy, but in reality, they are used as tools to make users visit third-party websites by force. That means when the user clicks on an ad by Savers Junction, he gets redirected to a predetermined website. Be careful because you might be forced to visit high-risk sites, and you may receive offers to install free software, which might be insecure. We recommend you to be careful and NOT trust Savers Junction ads. Besides these dangers you may be exposed to, this adware causes system slowdowns, which can annoy you to death. If you do not want to experience such inconveniences, we strongly recommend removing Savers Junction using a reliable anti-spyware software, for example, Reimage Reimage Cleaner . It can fully eliminate this and other spyware and malware type programs from your PC.

How did Savers Junction hijack my PC without my knowledge?

Savers Junction is spread via bundling technique. That means it is distributed with other free programs. Keep in mind that programs who have apps like the discussed adware attached to them do not look somehow different than a program who has no apps attached to it. Basically, a bundled software looks just like a single program. To find out whether it has optional applications added to it, you have to carefully monitor the installation setup. Read Terms of Use document and choose Custom or Advanced installation mode. Then deselect the proposals to install optional software. That is all you need to do to avoid installing unwanted additions.
