SuperPricer belongs to the group of adware infections. If you haven’t heard about this type of cyber threats, we can calm you down by saying that adware software is placed in the bottom of danger level scale. Most of the adware programs, including SuperPricer, are promoted as shopping helpers/assistants/optimizers or, in other words, deals providers. Such representation may be seductive for those PC users who prefer doing shopping online. However, you should not get fooled by such promises because their empty. In reality, SuperPricer adware is used for affiliate marketing, i.e. it is ad-supported and set to display sponsored advertisements that should help popularize unpopular third-party web pages or promote products that are not popular due to high prices or other issues. Thus, if you were offered to install this extension and you accidentally accepted it, our recommendation would be to delete SuperPricer virus without a delay. The easiest way to do that is to run Reimage or another malware removal tool.
