When you hear the name TopDeal, you might think that you are about to deal with a program that is there to make your life better. Unfortunately, that is not the case because TopDeal is nothing but an adware application. Adware applications may not be genuine computer security threats, but they can be exploited by cyber criminals to distribute malicious content and even spread malware. Therefore, the best way to protect your computer from harm is to remove TopDeal and other related applications immediately. You are bound to have more adware programs on your computer, so please be careful!
The reason we say you have more adware programs on your computer is that TopDeal cannot be downloaded directly. There is no official website that would be distributing the application, so we can firmly say that TopDeal usually gets distributed bundled with freeware. This means that users download and install the application onto their computers themselves. It is a rather common occurrence considering how often users download freeware apps from third-party servers. If you have downloaded a freeware application from a third-party website recently, there is a good chance that TopDeal arrived with it.
TopDeal uses MultiPlug engine, and our researchers say that it is practically identical to GoSave adware. If that is the case, we can draw a far better picture of what this application is. TopDeal is clearly a newer version of DealPlug, DownPlay, RightCoupon, and many other applications from the same group. This group is sometimes called semi-random name adware because the applications generate their names at random when they enter target systems. The names have randomly capitalized letters, so it is possible to recognize that it is the same TopDeal application.
What is more, we know that TopDeal usually gets distributed via InstallRex, Amonetize and Vittalia installers. These installers usually hide behind fake download buttons on torrent and other file sharing websites, so do not go clicking anything at random whenever you access a similar website, because you might end up with a number of unwanted programs on your computer. And it is very likely that TopDeal will be one of them.
Remove TopDeal from your computer manually and then delete the extensions from your browser. After manual removal, you should scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool because you need to terminate all the other unwanted programs.
