Where does ProShopper come from?

Since ProShopper is a semi-random name adware program, we know that it is related to a number of similar applications. ProShopper is based on JustplugIt engine, and it usually gets distributed via torrent and p2p websites when users click fake download buttons and initiate third-party installer download. ProShopper usually comes with InstallRex installers, although sometimes it could be distributed by Amonetize and Vittalia installers as well. The same distribution method was applied by other applications in the family, such as ShopperMaster, CouponScanner or SaveNShop.

Needless to say, it is impossible to download the application from the official website. The main homepage at proshopperapp.info does have a Download button, but clicking it only leads to an error page, and you get redirected to Chrome Web Store.

What does ProShopper do?

When this application enters target system, it adds extensions to Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer web browsers. The title of the application may differ from computer to computer because ProShopper can randomize its name upon the installation. Some of the examples include ProShhoppeR, ProShopperr, ProShoopPerr, ProShopaper and many others. According to our research, the newest versions of Google Chrome block ProShopper, but the application remains on your system even if it is not present on your browser.

When the program is up and running, it can collect information on what websites you visit. This data is necessary for an adware program because it needs to generate commercial advertisements. ProShopper will generate customized ad content based on your web browsing habits. It should increase the possibility of you clicking the ads, but that is definitely something you should not do.

How to remove ProShopper?

Third-party ad content is not safe. ProShopper does not review the third-party content, so it cannot guarantee that all the links embedded in the ads are completely safe. You have to take that into consideration and remove ProShopper from the system.

After manual removal scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner in search of other potentially unwanted applications. Should there be more undesirable programs on board, delete them with a reliable antispyware application. Do whatever you can to ensure your system’s security and stability.
