Deal4Real is a potentially unwanted program that is created for monetary purposes. It is related to other applications from InstallRex-WebPick group. The main feature of adware programs from this family is that they generate their names at random upon installation. Deal4Real is of no exception – it may add extensions on Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome web browsers under different names (like ddeiaul4rel), but it would still be the same application. Users must remove Deal4Real if they want to avoid serious computer security issues, as your system safety should be your top priority.
If you accidentally stumble upon deal4real.info (which is the official homepage for Deal4Real), please do not believe anything the website has to say. It is clear that the page is unreliable because direct download link does not work. It also proves that Deal4Real is not distributed directly. Based on extensive security research and the associations with such adware apps as RealDeal, TicTacCoupon or WeekApp, we can tell that Deal4Real employs InstalleRex download manager to travel around. This download manager is well-known for spreading potentially unwanted applications around the Internet. Thus, it is of no surprise that Deal4Real always comes bundled with fake Java plug-ins and media players.
It also means that you download and install Deal4Real onto your computer yourself. Users are often not aware of that because they download freeware apps with intention to install one particular program. There are also a lot of gullible users who basically click on anything they see on the web offering deals, new programs and other benefits for free. However, you must understand that nothing comes just for free these days, and if you download a “free” adware app onto your PC, it is very likely it will be just as annoying as Deal4Real.
When the program enters your computer, it is configured to run automatically with every system startup. It then starts collecting data on what websites you visit, so it could display custom ads and even unfamiliar web pages that appear as pop-ups. These pages use third-party advertisements that could be embedded with corrupted links. The ads will appear on your browser when you watch a video, or browse a particular shopping site that is supported by Deal4Real.
It is more than obvious that if you want to get rid of the annoying (and potentially malicious!) ads, you have to uninstall Deal4Real first. It is possible to remove the application via Control Panel, only you will have to delete the extension from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers manually. After manual removal, you are strongly encouraged to run a full system scan with a legitimate antispyware application. As it has been mentioned above, Deal4Real usually travels bundled with other freeware, and you have to make sure your PC is absolutely safe.
