GoodDeals looks like a genuine application that is there to help you economize on how much you spend online. However, this program resists being removed from your computer, and GoodDeals can also expose you to third party content that is far from being safe and reliable. Hence, it would be in your best interests to remove GoodDeals right now. For the manual removal instructions, scroll down to the bottom of this description, but we would also recommend investing a licensed antispyware tool that would prevent similar applications from entering your system.
We cannot categorize GoodDeals as a computer infection because it is very easy to download the application from gdeals.co. As you can perfectly see, this program has a working homepage, and it sports a sophisticated design that makes the application look highly user-friendly. The homepage greets you with a tag-line “Always there when you need it,” and then it goes to say that with GoodDeals you can save your money because this application offers you the best deals. On top of that, GoodDeals is presented as free, safe, and easy application. However, nothing is for free these days, so seeing how the app is free of charge, there must be a catch.
One of the suspicious points would be that gdeals.co is not the only distribution source used by GoodDeals. In fact, it is far more often that users install this application accidentally when it comes bundled with Taplika.com hijacker, CheckMeUp, NavRight, PathMaxx, and other adware applications. In other words, if you did not install GoodDeals consciously, chances are that it has been set up on your computer with a group of other unwanted applications, and now you have an entire horde of potential threats to remove from your system. The most important thing is not to panic because GoodDeals and similar apps cannot destroy your system instantaneously.
Our research shows that GoodDeals is related to the Pirrit adware application. Once the program settles down on your PC, it starts displaying commercial offers and various discount deals on online shopping websites. However, there is no guarantee that the GoodDeals ads will really lead you to reliable websites that can offer you to purchase something at a lower price. Since this application is free of charge, it displays third-party advertisements to cover its development costs.
We cannot say that this kind of behavior is illegal, but it could spell trouble especially if GoodDeals gets exploited by cyber criminals for malicious content distribution. You should avoid that by removing GoodDeals today. Uninstall the application via Control Panel, and then acquire a licensed antispyware tool to make sure your computer is protected from similar intruders.
