We talk about MyShopcoupon, and here we will explain how it got onto your PC, how to remove it, and how to guard yourself from such unwanted programs in case of reinfection. So, MyShopcoupon is a typical adware that isn't a serious malware. These tools, most often, are developed for commercial purposes and are copies of each other. Saying this, we mean that these tools are plain, but if they get into the PC of a novice user, they can pose a major problem. We strongly advise all people who discovered MyShopcoupon in their systems to immediately uninstall it with help of our removal guide.




The distribution scheme of viruses, usually, depends on its kind. For example, advertising program's developers most often use affiliated installation, ransomware, usually uses e-mail messages and Trojan viruses prefer vulnerabilities in software's code. Bundling depends on an indirect deception of the user. Actually, this bundle comprises of one good tool and 3-4 viruses. All programs in the package are installed simultaneously, so if user doesn't pay attention to the pop-ups that turn up during the installation, he can lightly allow them to penetrate the workstation. There is a menu in one of such windows that gives customer the choice between automatic and complex manners of installation. The common manner is picked automatically, and if user does not uncheck it, he will install all the contents of. There are some easy rules that could help you avoid getting hacked in this way:

  • Don't neglect the information that's shown in the windows during the installation. Sometimes, you need to read this info to realize that the program is useless and just cancel its installation.
  • Try not to attend unreliable websites that spread the unwanted programs. Theoretically, each site could get hacked and used for unlawful actions, but in practice the vast majority of the hacked web pages are created for advertising scam, display pornography or offer the illegal gambling. Viral webpages can be easily recognized by the huge amount of advertising, fake headers, garish appearance and strange tabs that emerge when you click the link.
  • We strongly recommend not using pirated versions of licensed programs. This is how swindlers spread adware, through the common customer’s greed. If you are going to install the unpaid software, then download it exclusively from the official developer site, or from another trusted site. By following this advice you lower the number of infection sources.

There is a prevalent myth that anti-viral tool software program can simply keep malware away from the PC, however it is not true. The operator's actions are the very common cause of infection of the device, and in order to protect your PC, you better obey the basic principles of computer security. Do not play in opposition to your anti-virus software, visiting the perilous websites, but work in its team, acting wisely in the Web and following the principles, given above.



The advices that we gave you are really plain, but if you'll abide them you will see how much better your system will perform and how much easier the web-browsing will become.
