What is SavingsCool?
It seems that it has been quite a while since we last discussed an adware application. Here comes our chance. SavingsCool is a program that comes into your computer with the intention to promote third-party content. This program will try to convince you that it can help you save money when you shop online. Of course, if you are an avid online shopper, you may feel inclined to click the content delivered by this application. However, our computer security experts say that you must remove SavingsCool from your system immediately. Otherwise, the adware application could easily expose you to potentially harmful content.
Where does SavingsCool come from?
Most of the time, such programs look like they are the real deal, especially as they have official homepages. However, the main pages seldom work properly. They same can be said about SavingsCool, too. The program’s homepage is supposed to be accessible via savings.cool, but at the time of writing this description the website was down, and we could not open it.
So how does this program manage to enter your computer if you cannot download it directly? The truth is that adware programs seldom rely on the direct distribution network. Rather than that, they travel around in software packages, so it is very likely that this adware app was installed on your computer with a number of other applications you downloaded from a third-party website.
Freeware applications are widely available for download from various file-sharing sites. When users download some freeware application, they seldom realize it might come with additional features or programs. The chance to install unwanted apps only grows if you go through the installation process automatically. Taking your time and checking each step should help you avoid more than just one security issue in the future.
What does SavingsCool do?
As mentioned, the application looks like a program that can help you save money. However, it is very annoying, and it can easily slow down your browser, consequently redirecting you to unfamiliar websites. So, instead of enhancing your online shopping experience, it would impede your web browsing experience overall.
SavingsCool will probably display commercial coupons and other types of ads through the wcmasc.exe (32bit) service. Although at first, the ads may seem random, the longer this program remains on your computer, the more customized these ads will become. That is so because adware applications (just like browser hijackers) can employ tracking cookies to monitor your online activity. This practice is implemented because these programs need to figure out your likes and preferences. They need to provide you with customized content you would be willing to click.
Needless to say, no good could come from clicking the SavingsCool ads. Although most of the ads would redirect you to commercial and online-shopping related websites, there is always a chance that the ads could be embedded with corrupted content. Why? Because the adware app does not review the third-party content it promotes. In a sense, this is the common feature shared by adware applications and browser hijackers. They focus on their financial profit, and they do not care about your safety. You are the one who needs to think about your system’s safety and security. Of course, if you need to protect it from harm, you need to start from the very bottom.
How do I remove SavingsCool?
The very bottom would mean the core of the initial problem. In other words, you have to remove SavingsCool from your system. Once again, this program looks like it can be uninstalled via Control panel, but once you try to do that, you will see that the uninstall function does not work.
That should not faze you because it is always possible to terminate these applications manually. Simply follow the instructions below, and you will be able to delete SavingsCool immediately.
Do not forget that there might be more unwanted applications installed on your computer. To make sure that your system is absolutely clean, run a full PC scan with the SpyHunter free scanner. This may you will definitely know which apps must be deleted, and so on. Do not hesitate to invest in a legitimate antispyware tool if need be. Your computer’s security should be one of your top priorities.
