I wrote this article to help you remove ShoppingDay Virus. This ShoppingDay Virus removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
ShoppingDay is not what it claims to be. Do not believe this program even for a second. It is a scam. The app promises to enhance your online shopping activities and help you save money by showing you the best deals and bargains online. This would have been great if only it was true. Unfortunately, it isn’t. ShoppingDay is nothing but an adware program which was never meant to be beneficial to you in any way. It was only developed to serve crooks` malicious intentions. So, do not fall into its trap and do not trust it. Look past the smoke and mirrors and see the app for what it is – a lying, deceptive adware. Do your best to get rid of this plague as soon as possible. If you let it stay, it will turn your browsing experience into a pure nightmare. Do not let this happen. Act now and delete the infection. Delays lead to regrets.
ShoppingDay really does bombard you with ads. But do not think that these ads are legitimate. The adware has no verifying mechanism. It verifies neither the commercials nor the advertisers. Basically, anyone who is willing to pay can use the app to promote. Usually, crooks are the ones to take advantage. They use ShoppingDay to spread malicious content online and to gain pay-per-click revenue. If you click on the commercials you see, they get paid. And it is impossible not to click. The ads are everywhere and they become more and more with each passing day. Even the pages which used to be ad-free are now completely covered with ads in all shapes and forms. Do not be foolish enough to believe that you can avoid clicking. It is impossible.
Sometimes, an advert shows up right under the cursor of your mouse and you are left with nothing but to click. Then, you may get redirected to a shady pages which are probably brimming with infections. Or, you can download a parasite directly from the commercials. A single wrong click is all it takes for you to invite more pests on your system. Because of the adware, you are constantly a single click away from infections.
The pest ruins your previously safe browsing experience. You are no longer able to find anything you are looking for. Imagine getting any online work done under such conditions. They are unbearable. So, do not tolerate them. Find where the nasty adware is hiding and delete it on the spot. To do so manually, use our detailed removal guide at the end of this article. If you prefer, you can also use an anti-malware program to get the job done for you. Just act fast. Time is not your friend in this situation.
How did you get infected with the ShoppingDay adware? The thing is, the pest tricked you and you were too distracted to notice. When you download programs off of the web, do you opt for the Advanced or for the Basic settings in the Setup Wizard? If you answer is the Basic ones, change your habits. Always opt for the Advanced settings as they allow you to see if there are some additionally attached apps to the program you are installing. If there are, deselect them. Such extras are usually malicious and have been attached by hackers. You don’t need them in your system, so remove them before finishing the installation. If you don’t, you will have to deal with them later on. Just like this adware. This is probably how it got in. If you had paid more attention, you would have been able to spot it on time and deny it access.
