What is Generous Deal?
Although Generous Deal promises to show you the undiscovered web, it is more likely that you will find out how irritating ads can be. Therefore, you can expect tons of pop-ups with shopping offers every time you search the Internet. The application is considered to be unreliable as the ads might come from suspicious websites that could promote unwanted software and other products that are irrelevant to your search keywords. If you do not wish to keep it any longer, you could take a look at the removal instructions below the article and delete it from your system.
How does Generous Deal work?
Besides showing the ads, Generous Deal could connect to the Internet without any permission or auto start with the Windows OS. The application might download additional components or update itself without asking whether you would like it or not. As it launches with Windows, it could open your browsers on its own and display sponsored links. Furthermore, the program adds an extension and shows ads on the Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. These pop-ups will show up every time you open your browser or while surfing the Internet. The suggested products could be very similar to your search keywords, or they can be unrelated. What annoys us the most is that these ads might be injected in search results or pages that you visit daily, which means it is very unlikely you could avoid them. However, the worst thing is that the pop-ups could lead you to untrustworthy websites, which might have malicious content. Therefore, Generous Deal removal is necessary, if you do not want to become a victim of fraud or make your computer vulnerable to infections.
Where does Generous Deal come from?
Although it is compared with the SuperWeb adware, Generous Deal is quite different. This application is very similar to other adware programs based on the Injekt engine, such as Discovery App, Assist Point, Strong Signal, etc., but we cannot state that the same developer created them. Unknown publishers sign most of these programs, and they could be fictitious too. What’s more, the adware spreads with bundled installers. Usually, users download it from suspicious websites where they search for free software. After launching the installer, you can choose the advanced settings, and there you should see the additional programs. Most likely, you can untick them, but users tend to go for the automatic installation and lose such option in the process. Consequently, it would be advisable to avoid websites with freeware or be more attentive while reading the setup wizard’s steps.
