EarnSale is a new adware application that is set to display commercial advertisements on every website you visit.

Regardless how “fancy” EarnSale is, you should remove it and save yourself a lot of trouble. This article should concern users who use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, because this adware affects all of them.
Indeed, EarnSale could affect your system in a very negative manner, because the content that it is set to promote could be dangerous. Note that most EarnSale advertisements will be labeled with “By EarnSale,” and similar markings. We urge you not to click on such ads, because you might get infected with malicious applications and that is the main reason why you should remove it. Like all adware, EarnSale promotes any third parties that to use the services that it provides. These third parties, oftentimes, engage in various illicit activities. They create fake advertisements that may, for example, extract money from unsuspecting online shoppers by promoting a product or a service which does not exist.
In addition, we must mention that EarnSale has the ability to collect information about the user. It is known to gather information about the users’ browsing history, what they have searched for, their IP addresses, and so on. They do this by enabling browser cookies on your computer. Its developers justify information gathering by claiming that they need this information to enhance browsing experience in order to show users “the best deals.” However, we insist that this kind of information gathering is an infringement of privacy and, thus, users should feel reluctant to trust EarnSale. Therefore, we recommend that you remove it at your earliest convenience.
EarnSale is distributed by utilizing a very cost-effective technique called bundling. Software bundles are basically various programs that have additional applications attached to them, and when the user installs such a bundle he will be offered to install an application such as EarnSale. Of course, the user may choose not to install the application by unchecking the checkbox during installation. Most users, however, do not notice the checkbox and install the program. Nevertheless, it’s never too late to remove EarnSale. It must be mentioned that software bundles containing EarnSale are usually found on websites that distribute freeware. Thus, we also encourage users to be more attentive when installing freeware bundles.
All in all, we at 411-spyware.com insist that users should remove EarnSale, because it is not beneficial in any shape or form. Not only is it not beneficial, but it also displays numerous ads that if clicked, could redirect the user to an infected website, which could infect his computer with malware. Once again we urge you to delete EarnSale for the sake of your system’s security.
