Have you been presented with an offer to purchase a brand new laptop computer for an insanely low price? Perhaps you have recently installed SlimPrice on your system. It is an adware application that has to be removed, no questions asked. A lot of users consider SlimPrice to be a dangerous computer infection because they don’t know how it enters their systems. This program, however, cannot get installed on your computer unless you authorize it, so SlimPrice’s removal basically rests on your shoulders as well. Luckily, it is not complicated to delete this program from your system. You can do it via Control Panel.
While you are at it, check to see if there are more unfamiliar applications in the list of installed programs. SlimPrice may have an official homepage, but there is no direct download link at slimprice.net. This means that SlimPrice gets distributed with other potentially unwanted programs, so, if you have it on your system, it means you might have far more unwanted applications as well.
Based on our research data, SlimPrice is very similar to SharkManCoupon, SaveON, LuckyCoupon, RealDeal, RightCoupon, and many other adware applications that look like useful browser extensions. Just like its predecessors, SlimPrice is based on the JustPlugIt engine, and it enters your computer through such third-party installers as Amonetize, Vittalia, and InstallRex. InstallRex is the most common installer in the SlimPrice distribution scheme. The others might also be used, depending on your location and your IP address.
It is not that hard to end up installing adware on your computer, especially if you often download freeware from third-party file sharing websites. These sites are generally full of fake download buttons waiting for gullible users to click them. If you do, you automatically initiate freeware download and eventually SlimPrice gets installed on your system.
SlimPrice has been created to help its developers earn easy money as it redirects you to partner websites, automatically increasing their traffic. SlimPrice redirects you by displaying customized advertisements that are supposed to link you to sites that offer relevant deals and coupon offers. However, SlimPrice does not review its links because it outsources the ad content from a third-party advertising network. Consequently, some of the ads end up being embedded with links to unreliable websites, and you can't blame SlimPrice for it.
You will do yourself a favor if you delete SlimPrice from your computer along with other unwanted applications. Run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner to determine what programs must be removed from the PC. Uninstall SlimPrice via Control Panel, and do not forget to invest in a legitimate security application, so that there will be no need for you to worry about similar things in the future.
