Cash Kitten is supposed to be an application that helps you find the best deals on the web while you go on an online shopping spree. But we have found that, instead, it starts displaying third-party ads, such as pop-up ads and offers, which may pose a threat to your privacy and your computer’s system security as well. Finding annoying coupons and ads while you are surfing the web may be an indication that this adware program has sneaked onto your system. It is quite likely that it was not you who has knowingly installed this application. It is more probable that it arrived in a freeware bundle. The bad news in this case is that this bundle may be packed with other threats as well. This could easily increase the vulnerability of your system. Therefore, we suggest that you delete Cash Kitten as soon as you can. If you had a decent, up-to-date anti-malware application installed on your computer, this adware and the other malware programs could not have infiltrated your PC. If you want to protect your machine effectively, you should think of a solution you can afford.
This useless program may have an official page, cashkitten.net, but this is probably one of the least informative and most useless pages on the planet. “Find the purrfect deal with Cash Kitten” is all you can actually learn about this program. There is not even a link or a button to download this ad-supported program; not that we would urge you to do so at all. But it is still suspicious behavior that is worth mentioning. In reality, of course, what are the chances that anyone lands on this site? Not too much, we believe. That is why the creators of such useless applications need to be creative enough to spread their shady product over the web.
This is why the creators of this adware also arrived at the conclusion that they need to bundle it with other malware installers and promote the bundles on freeware and torrent sites. This is a frequently used and well-working recipe. And that is exactly why you need to be extra careful when you want to download free stuff from the Internet. This may start with a web search. At one point you will have a page of links showing up as opportunities to get to your desired free tool or whatever you want to download. This is when experience can come in handy to stop you from clicking on otherwise obviously fake and malicious websites. Because, if you click on links that take you to such pages, chances are you will click on content that will inevitably result in downloading infectious bundles. If you have a suspicion that this is how this adware may have entered your computer, you should run a system scan after removing Cash Kitten.
We have discovered that this adware is an identical clone of Bronze Aid, Discovery App, High Stairs, Wander Burst, and many more ad-supported programs that have been built on the Injekt engine. This program is also very similar to the so-called SuperWeb family of adware. The main purpose behind this application is to generate web traffic to certain affiliated websites. This is done through showing you all kinds of coupons, pop-up ads, and best offers. Clicking on any of these ads means money for the people behind this adware. Practically, whoever clicks on such ads may support potential criminals who scam users to get rich on them. But that is not the worst thing about these ads. As a matter of fact, you may end up on malicious websites and you may be scammed in a number of ways. This may result in more infections on your computer and less money on your bank account. That is why you should step up and remove Cash Kitten right now.
There is definitely one good thing about this application, and that is its uninstaller. We have found that this uninstaller leaves no leftovers, so it can be safely used through Control Panel. If you have never uninstalled a program before, please use our guide below as a reference. But, if you want to protect your PC from future attacks, we recommend that you download and install a professional anti-malware program.
