Where does Customer Promos come from?
Customer Promos has many clones such as Bronze Aid, Sale Charger, Positive Finds, and others. The way these adware programs work is very similar to the SuperWeb family applications; however, Customer Promos and its clones are based on the Injekt engine, and so they have a different developer. Do not be surprised, if you have not downloaded this program yourself, and yet it is in your system because adware like this one can come with bundled freeware. Possibly you downloaded some free application and did not notice that another one came along uninvited. It is a very popular method of promoting and spreading programs to a wide range of people, as most of them do not notice additional software in installation wizard or it is not visible at all.
How does Customer Promos work?
This adware is compatible with only two browsers: Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, so, for example, if you have Google Chrome too it will not be affected, and you can safely browse the web using it. As this adware settles on your computer it shows its presence as a browser extension; also, it is visible on Control Panel. Furthermore, Customer Promos display a huge amount of pop-ups and shopping offers that can disrupt your browsing experience. The main danger behind these pop-ups is their origin, because mostly they belong to third parties, and the content in their websites can be more or less harmful based on how secure is your computer and how you interact with that content. For instance, you can click a pop-up and get redirected to some third party website where you will receive a fake notification that looks like from your system. Probably, you will have three options: press X, OK or Cancel. It would be very smart to choose the X option because OK/Cancel etc. can hide an installation button of some Trojan or a virus. Therefore, we advise you to avoid any kinds of ads displayed by Customer Promos and remove this program from your system as it does not give you any benefits. Keep it in mind that using it might harm your computer.
