Whenever you experience a flood of commercial advertisements during your web browsing sessions, you should check whether you have the likes of RandomDealApp installed on your computer. There are many similar adware programs out there, but this time we will discuss this exact application that might be turning your web surfing sessions into a nightmare. You are right if you think that you have to remove RandomDealApp immediately. This adware program might as well be exploited by malevolent third parties for their purposes, so you can never tell what dangers this program might expose you to. It is a lot better to be on the safe side.
Luckily, we know which adware family RandomDealApp belongs to. It comes from the Multiplug group of adware applications, and so we know what to expect of this application and how to delete it. All the Multiplug applications (like CoupMania, CoinSave, CrossBrowse, etc.) are based on the JustPlugIt engine. The engine itself is not malicious. It is an open source platform that can be used by almost anyone, so the adware creators make use of the engine to create multiple applications that are practically identical. Another common feature shared by all the Multiplug programs is the semi-random name. That is, when RandomDealApp (or any other program from this group for that matter) gets installed on your computer, its name in the list of programs is capitalized in a random manner. However, you can still recognize the program because the randomization does not present you with any reading difficulties.
Now, you might say that you did not install RandomDealApp on your PC, and this program entered your system behind your back. However, that is only partially true. You see, the point is that this program does not have an official distribution source. Thus, it is always distributed in software bundles that users download from file-sharing web pages. RandomDealApp usually comes in the IntallRex (sometimes Amonetize or Vittalia) installers, and even if you do not know what kind of installer delivers freeware onto your PC, the point is that you have to INITIATE the download yourself; otherwise the freeware apps will not “attack” you, so to speak.
Therefore, it is possible to avoid installing RandomDealApp, as long as users are attentive during freeware installation process. Naturally, if you breeze through the setup, you miss the steps that allow you to deselect unwanted applications. As a result, unwanted programs and extensions are installed on your PC, and RandomDealApp is one of them. The application will add extensions to your default browsers, and it will start collecting data on your web browsing habits.
This information will be used to present you with commercial ads. Some of the ads might be embedded with links that lead to dangerous websites. That is possible because RandomDealApp does not check the ad content. In other words, it is not responsible for the third-party content, and you could easily end up getting infected with malware if you click the wrong ad.
Do not play with fire. Remove RandomDealApp at once, and delete the extension from your browser as well. Do not forget that you might need to get rid of other potential intruders as well, and the best way to do it is to invest in a reliable computer security application. Aside from dealing with potential threats, it will also protect your computer in the future.
