Have you ever thought that using a third-party browser extension like Awesome-Promos would help you purchase something at a lower price? Perhaps you have not because you already know that relying on unfamiliar applications is not a good idea when it comes to ensuring your system’s security and safety. Therefore, if you happen to have this adware program on your PC, you will do yourself a favor if you remove Awesome-Promos right now. It is not complicated to get rid of this application, but you have to keep in mind that there might be more unfamiliar products on-board. Take your time, and delete all of them along with Awesome-Promos.
You might say that you do not install unfamiliar programs on your PC, but sometimes that might happen accidentally. If you tend to download programs from third-party websites, some of the third-party installers may come with additional apps included. Going through the installation wizard automatically can easily lead to unwanted software setup. Sometimes installation wizards inform you about the additional programs that will be installed on your PC along with the application you have recently downloaded. Awesome-Promos might be one of those unnecessary programs, and once the installation is complete, it will spring into action.
You may not notice that you have this adware program at first. Awesome-Promos belongs to the Multiplug family of adware applications, and they usually come in software packages. All programs from this group exhibit the same distribution features. BranderApp, BuyTheApp, TwistTiner, and many other programs from the bunch have been distributed in the same fashion as well. Awesome-Promos may look different at first because it looks like it has a working homepage at awesomepromos.org. Nevertheless, the website does not offer us anything useful, so it is clear to see that the site is only an empty shell created to push you into believing Awesome-Promos is the real deal.
Rather than using direct distribution channels, Awesome-Promos spreads around in the Vittalia, Amonetize and InstallRex installers. When the application enters your computer, it adds extensions to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Sometimes the Awesome-Promos add-on may not work on the newest versions of Google Chrome because the browser tends to block unfamiliar and potentially harmful applications. This fact alone should be enough to convince you that Awesome-Promos should not be allowed to remain on your system.
In fact, adware programs could easily lead to severe computer security issues, especially, if they get exploited by cyber criminals. You should not take your chances with this one. Let us not forget that Awesome-Promos could be associated with browser hijackers and other potentially unwanted programs that might slither into your system to steal your personal information or redirect you to unfamiliar (and potentially dangerous!) pages.
Open Control Panel and remove Awesome-Promos yourself. When you delete the extension from your default browser, you should also run a full system scan with a computer security tool of your choice. It is important that you get rid of all the potential threats that might be running on your system. It is obvious that Awesome-Promos is not the only unwanted program, so you have to do everything in your power to terminate any potential threats right now.
