PastaQuotes is a free computer application that helps computer users find information about service providers their area. The application is promote at pastaleads.com and may also be distributed by third parties. PastaQuotes can be installed as a regular application or a browser extension, depending on what sources you use. If you download the application directly from its developer, the application is installed as a browser extension, but if it is bundled with other programs, you will not find PastaQuotes on your browser. Instead of the browser plug-in, you will only find two files in Windows Task Manager, which are PastaLeadsService.exe and PastaLeadsWinApp.exe.
PastaQuotes is said to be extremely convenient because it provides only relevant content unlike regular search engines. The PastaQuotes widget appears in your browser every time you enter a search term. However, in return for the chance to get access to the information about various services, the application displays pop-up advertisements. PastaQuotes is an ad-supported program; it is sponsored by third parties, which are not monitored or controlled by PastaLeads, which is the developer of the application.
PastaQuotes pop-ups can be generated on numerous websites, mainly commercial websites such as kmart.com. The advertisements of PastaQuotes carry the label “PastaQuotes Shopper”, and you can disable those advertisements if you do not want to be provided with search related offers. However, it does not mean that you completely disable the program.

The information collected is used to enhance the quality of the service; moreover, it may be shared with the affiliates of PastaLeader and some other companies that are not related to the developers of PastaQuotes.
