If your screen is swarming with pop-up ads and flashy banners, you might be infected with MyPriceCut. If this questionable adware is installed on your computer, it is important that you remove it immediately because MyPriceCut may easily be a security threat to your system. It displays third-party commercials, so you can never be 100% sure where the embedded links might redirect you. If you do not delete MyPriceCut, you might endanger your computer's safety. But let us explain it in more detail why we consider it unreliable and what kind of potential threats MyPriceCut may harbor.
We always recommend that users download software only directly from vendors’ pages or official sites. MyPriceCut has no official website, which already causes us to question its reliability, and this could be the first sign that you should remove it. Obviously, MyPriceCut is not the only adware that has no website. In fact, this ad-supported program is nothing new at all; it is simply a new member of the Multiplug family that needs to be deleted. There are hundreds of unreliable adware applications in this family, such as MyDealBox, CoupMeApp, and OMGApp, which are all based on the JustPlugIt platform. While their names are different, MyPriceCut is identical to all of these apps, which means that this adware may be a security threat for your system if you do not remove it now.
If you have this infection on your computer, you will see an endless display of “best” deals and other advertisements whenever you want to shop online. In fact, these ads are all fake and made-up commercials to get your attention. If you do not remove MyPriceCut, your web surfing may turn into a nightmare, and it could also slow down your PC. You may think that this is a very useful tool, but keep in mind that MyPriceCut can collect information about you and your online behavior. This adware can also use your internet connection without your permission, so it can easily send any data about you to third-party adware servers. After a while, you will get customized ads which you could be deceived into clicking. As a matter of fact, you cannot ever trust these kinds of ads; therefore, you should delete MyPriceCut from your system ASAP. Unreliable third-party ads might redirect you to malicious websites that may also be related to online marketing scams. All in all, your system security is at risk if you keep this adware on your computer.
MyPriceCut usually travels in shareware bundles, so computer users most likely download it from file sharing websites. These are actually the main platforms for questionable installers such as InstallRex to spread their free software packages. It is very easy to get some unwanted applications and infections on board once you install such a bundle; thus you had better remove all the programs you do not know and may be related to MyPriceCut. Unfortunately, you can never be sure of the legitimacy of the included apps. For example, MyPriceCut can come with potentially unwanted programs and also browser hijackers such as mystartsearch.com. Once these applications are installed, your system will be open to even more threats.
We hope that it is clear now why it is so important that you remove MyPriceCut from your system. We have prepared a removal guide for you in case you need help with this. However, you need to remember that it is not enough to delete this adware via Control Panel. You also need to remove the browser extension, except from IE. Since there might be other potential threats, it would be best for you to install a reliable antispyware tool to take care of any infections automatically.
