Nowadays, ad-supported software plays a crucial role in popularizing websites. Internet Cupom is one such application and it is configured to promote a website called Internetcupom.com. Removing this program is something you should consider. It is not a malicious application, but will not improve your browsing experience in any way, because its only purpose is to promote this one website that you probably never heard of and are not interested in visiting. Still, it is distributed by using deceptive methods so you might install it accidentally. Whatever the case may be, you probably do not want to see it on your computer, so you are welcome to use our manual removal guide. However, if you seek to get more information about this infection, then please continue reading.
As previously stated, this application is set to promote a website called Internetcupom.com. And that is all this application does. This site does not appear to be malicious, but the coupons it allegedly hosts are probably fake. There are a lot of similar websites that claim to give discount coupons for nothing, but they never work. We believe that the same goes for Internet Cupom’s discount coupons. If you were to click a coupon, then you will be redirected to a subpage of a product on the respective online retailer for which the coupon was allegedly intended. Therefore, the true intentions of this website’s developers remain unclear. We believe that Internet Cupom and its promoted website may be used for collecting information about the people who try to use the coupons to sell it off to other advertisers.
Now let us talk a bit about this program’s technical details. Internet Cupom is Chrome exclusive so it does not have a version compatible with Internet Explorer or Firefox. The modifications it does to Chrome are not extensive. Visually you will only see this program’s logo on the top right of the browser window. However, it adds or performs several modifications to Chrome’s files that you should delete. The file paths to these modifications are as follows:
Also, this program creates and additional registry entry located at HKCU\ SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\LowRegistry\DOMStorage\internetcupom.com. If you want to get rid of Internet Cupom without having to use third-party applications, then you should remove the aforementioned files and registry entry from your PC so that it would not display its promotional website and collect information about your browsing habits.
We would also like to point out a few things about its promoted website. Internetcupom.com's IP address is 22.214.171.124. This IP address's location is Quebec, Beauharnois. Its Registrar is MONIKER ONLINE SERVICES LLC. It must be noted that most of this website’s visitors come from Brazil which make up 95% of the total number of visitors. Also, 3.32% come from Portugal and 0.20% from Angola. The rest of its visitors come from different locations. In all, this website has a total number of 75 thousand visitors. Therefore, it is necessary for them to know that this program is useless, and its promoted website’s actual purpose is unknown.
There is one last thing we want to inform you about. And that is this program’s distribution methods. While researching Internet Cupom we have found that it is distributed with the help of shady software bundles. These software bundles might not say that they contain this application, so you have to select advanced installation settings if you want to uncheck its installation. However, in some cases, you might not be able to opt out from installing this program at all.
So, if you want to get rid of this application, then you have come to the right place. Please follow the instructions provided below that will show you how to uninstall Internet Cupom from the browser and then delete the leftover files. Once again, we stress that this program is next to useless, and you will not benefit from having it on your browser in any way. Note that on Chrome this extension will appear as NetCupom - Combustivel para suas compras.
