At first glance Coupon Cactus looks like an absolutely legitimate browser extension that is very useful especially if you are an online shopaholic. For what it's worth, Coupon Cactus is not a computer virus, but it can prove to be a rather annoying application, considering that most of the time users install it unwittingly, by going through freeware installation process automatically. Therefore, if it was not your intention to have this plugin installed, you should remove Coupon Cactus from your computer, and save yourself the trouble of being bombarded by commercial advertisements.

Coupon Cactus is created by 215 Apps and so it belongs to the same group of browser plugins as Deal Spy, Coupon Caddy, Discount Buddy and similar browser extensions. All of them present you with a list of coupon deals from such online stores as Expedia, Toys R Us, Zales and so on. The idea is that Coupon Cactus should help you to save money by allowing you to purchase a good at an optimal price. The plugin is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and it can be downloaded at

However, if Coupon Cactus comes bundled with freeware from third party websites, it is very likely that users install it without looking closely - they install the plugin automatically, and then complain that Coupon Cactus has invaded their computers and that they need to fight the virus. Once again, Coupon Cactus is NOT a virus. It may have certain security issues, but you can easily remove it from your PC if you want to.
