QuantumCoupons could be the name of a useful application that offers you coupons whenever you are visiting online shops or any related sites; however, we have found that this desktop software is quite unreliable and useless. In fact, we have labeled it as an adware program due to the fact that it mostly promotes third-party websites and may display potentially harmful third-party ads as well. Since this application does not offer anything extra, you could easily do the same with a reputable and reliable browser to be frank. This makes this software practically redundant and an undesirable element on your computer. If you do not remove QuantumCoupons, you may risk your virtual security since this adware may expose you to potentially unreliable web content. What’s more, this infection can be the sign of multiple threats on board. Therefore, you will have to eliminate all the potentially harmful programs if you want to restore the security of your virtual world.
We have discovered that this adware is nothing new, but merely a new variant from a relatively fresh ad-supported program family that include FreebieForth, FamilyGurus, and Flexible Family among many others. Not only their way of functioning is the same, but their websites and installers also seem to be identical behind the scenes. This adware has its promotional webpage at quantumcoupons.com, but this page gets flagged by any up-to-date security tool as a potential threat. If your computer is not protected, it is possible that you download the official installer and run it on your PC. We would like to warn you that this installer may contain a number of malware infections and other unwanted threats. We have found that these may include Yoursearching.com, System Healer, and Search Know, which is dependent on your location. These infections in the installer may also change as time passes. But no matter which ones get packed in this malicious bundle, the truth is that your system will be infected with potentially unwanted programs, adware programs as well as browser hijackers. This can seriously raise the vulnerability of your PC. That is why we say that even if you delete QuantumCoupons, there may still be a few other threats to tackle.
But this is not even the only suspicious way for this adware to enter your computer. It is also possible that you click on unsafe third-party ads, such as download offers. These pop-up ads can be displayed by questionable websites, including torrent and freeware pages, or adware programs on your PC. We have found instances when this adware was installed through corrupt links on manipulated search results pages. If your computer is infected by browser hijackers, it should not be surprising that your web search ends up on a modified results page even if it is a customized Yahoo or Google search page. There might also be freeware bundles that carry this infection along with other threats. It must be clear by now that no matter how this annoying and sneaky adware showed up on your computer, it may indicate the presence of other malicious programs as well. As we have already mentioned, it is important that you delete QuantumCoupons right now and take care of all the other potentially unreliable applications as well.
When you run this program, it opens a window on your desktop with its logo and a promoted website below it. This website could be, for example, musicrule.com/choose.php. You should know that musicrule.com itself is also blocked by security programs as a potential threat. This is not really convincing about the reliability and usefulness of this application; on the contrary. This webpage that may be displayed offers you two choices to visit two websites. One is scorebig.com and the other one is last.fm/music/+free-music-downloads. Both of these sites contain a number of potentially harmful third-party ads, so you should be careful where you click. It is also possible that this adware may be able to inject its own third parties’ ads into those pages. This useless software may also open an Internet Explorer window and load freebiesfrenzy.com and the like, which are again potentially unreliable websites hosting several questionable third-party advertisements. If you click anything that comes through this program, you may find yourself on harmful websites. You are risking more malware infections, and other types of online scams that may also involve losing your money and identity to cyber criminals. We hope you see now why it is advisable to remove QuantumCoupons ASAP.
You are in the luck today because it is really simple to end your pain. This adware has a working uninstaller, so you just need to run it through Control Panel. If you have never done that before, we suggest that you use our instructions below this article. Since this adware and most probably other infections as well managed to find a way to your system, it is quite likely that you do not have a proper anti-malware program installed on your PC. If you want to protect your virtual world from the harm these threats may cause to your files and your system, you should think about using a reliable security tool that will automatically take care of all your security-related issues.
