I hate when my web browser’s settings are changed without my permission!!!! Today I opened Chrome and found Ultimate Shopping Toolbar injected. Also, my new tab has been jeopardized, and I can’t get rid of intrusive ads by Ultimate Shopping. What can I do to get rid of all those pests?!

Why can web browsers get hijacked by Ultimate Shopping virus?

We are sorry to hear that Internet users get tricked to install Ultimate Shopping. Although this application is legitimate and can be found in Chrome Web Store, official website, and several download sites, in reality it is classified as adware and partially works as a browser hijacker. Thus, if you fall into installing it (via any source), it initiates unwanted browser’s modifications and performs various tasks to earn the money for its developers and affiliates.

Ultimate Shopping has been developed by ClientConnect Ltd. The company is infamous for the development of low-level security threats, including Search Protect,, Ultimate Recipes, and many others. Ultimate Shopping is said to allow you to “Find your favorite shopping sites (ebay™, Amazon™, aliexpress™ and more) in an Instant!” Unfortunately, by these are just bogus promises. Thus, if you have already found your browser being affected by Ultimate Shopping adware, our recommendation would be to use Reimage because it will fix your web browser instantly.

Do not fall into installing Ultimate Shopping adware firectly via trustworthy sources

Questions about Ultimate Shopping

Once installed, Ultimate Shopping virus drops an add-on and toolbar into Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari web browsers. Besides, without requiring a permission it may install a Browser Helper Object (Search Protect), corrupts registries, lands on Windows startup, and other settings. Also, it injects tracking cookies and starts transmitting non-personally identifiable information to its affiliates. Finally, you default New Tab Window, and Search Provider will be replaced by Ultimate Shopping. Indeed, nobody wants to experience such modifications. However, the worst part is the consequences that Ultimate Shopping redirect virus can cause. According to security experts, the presence of this adware can lead to such issues:

  1. Loss of sensitive data, what can lead to privacy violation (IP address, email address, approximate geolocation, data entered in particular pages, etc.).
  2. Ruined browsing experience due to serious slowdowns. Ultimate Shopping virus can misuse system’s memory and diminish loading time of videos on YouTube and other sites.
  3. Reception of potentially dangerous advertisements. Ultimate Shopping hijacks browsers and enables ActionScript3, which causes web browsers to generate pop-up, banner, pop-under, full-page and other forms of advertisements (usually marked as “Ads by Ultimate Shopping,” “Ultimate Shopping Ads,” “Brought by Ultimate Shopping,” and similar).
  4. These ads will be very attractive because third-party advertisers will be able to prepare them using information related to your browsing habits. Unfortunately, but they may be linked to suspicious/unsafe/malicious sites involved in distribution of malware.

Is it possible to avoid installation of Ultimate Shopping adware?

Ultimate Shopping redirects and pop-up ads are not funny deal at all. Search results that Ultimate Shopping Toolbar can also show sponsored search results and make you visit the sites of affiliate parties that may, indeed, have suspicious intentions. Luckily, it’s possible to prevent installation of adware. We have already noted above, Ultimate Shopping malware can be installed directly. However, it can also be spread via software packages. Freeware developers get paid for each third-party app that they agree to distribute along with legitimate apps. Therefore, to prevent the installation of Ultimate Shopping Toolbar and adware, avoid installing unfamiliar apps and make sure to check Advanced or Custom setup of free programs that you are going to install. Otherwise, you may skip such agreement: “By clicking ‘Agree & Install’, I accept and agree to installing the Chrome™ extension and setting Chrome™ New Tab and Default Search to Ultimate Shopping, and the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.” and unconsciously agree to install Ultimate Shopping adware.

Manual or automatic removal?

When we speak about PUPs, both manual and automatic removal option is possible. However, when we speak about apps developed by ClientConnect Ltd, it’s very important to keep in mind that they are typically spread along with Search Protect, which does not allow removal of programs. If the manual Ultimate Shopping removal using the guide below is not successful, you should install a professional anti-malware and run a full scan with it.
