What does PriceGong Virus do?
As it is very important to pay attention to the installation wizards and their wording, you should know how the license agreement of PriceGong 10.6.8 reads:
When you search for a product in e-commerce sites, PriceGong may insert a small tag link inside the HTML page near the product price or near the product details. Clicking on a tag link will send the product details to PriceGong servers to compare prices for the product. If alternative prices or offers are found, they will be displayed in a PriceGong result window.
Additionally, it is clearly stated that if you register or subscribe to services provided by a third-party company, the arrangement and the consequences of the deal is your own responsibility.
In order to provide you with the best offers, PriceGong Virus has to connect to remote servers, and if you have enabled this add-on on all your browsers, you may notice that the Internet speed has decreased a little. Once you delete the plug-in, you can again browse the Internet without being disturbed by unwanted pop-ups.
