If you see a toolbar popping up at the upper right corner of your screen when you visit online shopping sites, you have been infected with Shop Scouter. Do not hesitate to remove this application, because it is exclusively aimed at promoting ads. Although the commercial content seems limited mostly to such online retailers as Ebay or Amazon, you might notice the general increase of ads on your browser wherever you go on the Internet. If you do want to be bothered by pop-up windows, banners, in-text ads, and other clutter, which Shop Scouter sends to your screen, delete this application as soon as possible. Another reason why you should not hesitate to terminate this app is the method it employs to reach target computers. Also, bear in mind that the advertisement-serving it engages in is not as innocuous as it might seem at first sight.
