Favicon Remove PriceChop Spam Ads (Uninstall Guide)
6 Sep 2014, 9:51 pm
Have you been infected, or are you concerned about, PriceChop ads? Perhaps you're wondering if what you're currently seeing on your computer is a symptom of adware. And you probably want to know just exactly what PriceChop adware can do to you. It's a potentially dangerous program that will display and on your computer labeled "Ads by PriceChop". Some of those ads may be very misleading. This adware may be also installed under different names, for example Pricecahop, PriceoChop, Preicecchop and so on. Scammers use this technique to avoid detection and make malware removal process as difficult as possible. Please use this guide to remove PriceChop and any associated malware from your computer.

PricEchOp 3.9 is the latest variant of this adware. It's a program that typically installs a component onto your PC - usually without you having given it the go ahead. This component displays adverts that have normally been customized to show you products or services that scammers thinks you will be interested in (and therefore, far more likely to spend money). But how on earth would scammers know what ads to show you? And why after searching for holidays in Jamaica do you suddenly start seeing pop-up windows advertising hotels and flights in that part of the world? Is this adware a mind reader or is there something more to it?

While some adware is rather more generic, you will notice that a lot of it seems to know exactly what sort of websites you've been looking at. This is because PriceChop and other similar adware programs track the websites you visit and monitor your Internet browsing habits. The data is relayed back to a scammer who can then show you advertisements that you are more likely to click on.

It might sound all very useful but in fact this form of monitoring your user habits sits uncomfortably with many people. Compounding the unsettling feeling that someone is watching your every move – even if you're only looking at new garden furniture or how to cook the perfect risotto – is the fact that in a lot of cases PriceChop is bundled with spyware.

Spyware is another form of malware which, like adware, monitors and records your online movements. However spyware often has a more sinister game in mind. Spyware often contains something called a keylogger. This notes which keys you are hitting, thus recording your personal conversations and correspondence as well as your passwords, log in details and credit card information. BUT PriceChop cannot steal your passwords or any other valuable information. It tracks your browsing history, search queries and other data related to your browsing habits. The worst part is that associated Price Chop browser extensions are very persistent and even if you manually remove them, they come back once you restart your web browser. What is more, this adware creates a few processes that run in the background and may download additional malware onto your computer.

Less innocuous adware programs take a more aggressive approach than simply trying to point you in the direction of cheap flights to the Caribbean.

Adware can hijack your home page or browser, redirecting you to websites you don't want to visit – these may be of an X rated or illegal nature
Adware can cause problems with other programs installed on your computer – this can compromise your security
Adware has a negative effect on your operating system, slowing down your computer's processor and your Internet connection

How to remove PriceChop? Getting rid of legitimate adware is easy – you should just be able to uninstall the program that it came with. However the more malicious form of adware like PriceChop can be a real pain. If uninstalling the program doesn't work, please follow the the steps in the removal guide below. You will have to run your anti-virus or anti-malware. Restart your computer and run the scan again twice to be sure – some malware can be tough to delete, but a good program should find and delete anything nasty.

If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon What is HpUI.exe and how to remove it?
5 Sep 2014, 8:53 pm

HpUI.exe - by SupTab/SearchProtect.


What is HpUI.exe?


HpUI.exe is a potentially unwanted application that may hijack your web browser and display ads on your computer. It's belongs SupTab and Search Protect programs (probably some other adware programs too) that are classified as adware PUP. Search Protect redirects users to search.conduit.com. Multiple anti-virus engines have detected this file as malicious: Zhangling.BCD 20140807, Adware.Win32.SupTab.81 20140807, HEUR/Malware.QVM06.Gen 20140807, SearchProtect 20140807. The first detection name is quite interesting because AVG anti-virus uses Zhangling as an identifier. But indeed, HpUI.exe has a valid certificated and its signer name is Zhang Ling. Other anti-virus programs use more obvious names such as adware SupTab and SearchProtect. Just like most adware and PUPs, it's distributed via pay per install networks and fake Flash or Java update web pages. It also comes bundled with freeware, toolbars and other applications like screensavers or even driver downloads. HpUI.exe is usually located in the 'C:\Program Files\SupTab\' folder and in Windows %Temp% folder. It remains unclear what's the main purpose if this file but it runs in the background all the time and uses system resource. I also noticed network activities related to this program. Needles to say, it's not essential for Windows and may cause lots of problems including annoying ads and system crashes. I recommend you to remove HpUI.exe and related malware from your computer. It can be removed manually but it would be better to use an anti-malware program because if it's installed on your computer then there might be other potentially harmful software installed as well.







File name: HpUI.exe
Publisher:SupTab/SearchProtect
File Location Windows XP:'C:\Program Files\SupTab\
File Location Windows 7: 'C:\Program Files\SupTab\
Startup file: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run → HpUI.exe

Favicon Remove lpmxp2149.com pop-up virus (Uninstall Guide)
4 Sep 2014, 8:44 pm
Lpmxp2149.com is a potentially dangerous website that may distribute adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). The file Setup.exe has been seen being distributed by the following URL http://www.lpmxp2149.com/.../Setup.exe, published by Digital Plugin S.l. Detection ratio: 9 / 55. It has been detected as malware by multiple anti-virus engines, for example a variant of a variant of Win32/SoftPulse.J, TR/Dropper.Gen, Socrydo, Win32:PUP-gen [PUP]. I am willing to make a bet that if you've had your computer hijacked by lpmxp2149.com you're probably worried, annoyed, stressed or uncertain. Or all of those things. With so many different types of malware out there it can be tricky to know what will happen to your computer, your operating system, your bank account or even your identity. Viruses and malware affect millions of people worldwide and most of us have been affected by them at some time. Protection is paramount, especially in this increasingly sophisticated era of malware and that's exactly why you need a reputable anti-malware software program. The single best safety guard against, not only malware and viruses, but against things like adware, Potentially Unwanted Programs that causes lpmxp2149.com pop-ups on your computer too.

Here's an example of a www.lpmxp2149.com pop-up claiming that your Video Player might be outdated. The web page then automatically downloads file Setup.exe on your computer. If you keep getting a similar pop-up as well then your computer is infected with adware.


But installing any old anti-malware won't do. You should make sure it's not only a decent one from one of the big brands but that it is always up-to-date too. Having said that it's always good to get into the habit of knowing exactly what you do and don't want on your PC. That way if you get the feeling that your PC is running sluggishly or acting 'weird' you can check it out sooner rather than later before it causes more problems than are necessary.

Lpmxp2149.com virus installs itself in a number of ways although the most popular method deployed is via free software downloads. Many viruses leave you vulnerable to attack from annoying adware and they all love the good old unwanted pop-up ads! If you've been infected by this adware virus you'll know just how enraging those endless pop-up windows are, while your unwanted extension will have dispensed with your original one and will keep redirecting you to websites of its own choice.

Lpmxp2149.com comes bundled with PUPs. Technically speaking, PUPs are not actually viruses but they are very likely something you don't want on your computer and will want to delete it as soon as possible. As well as hijacking your browser, a PUP may make using your laptop a slow and tedious process.

So it's probably fair to say that you don't want a Potentially Unwanted Program on your computer so how do you stop it from happening? Because PUPs are normally installed when you download programs, software or videos you should ensure that you only download what you actually need and not some 'special offer' that has been stealth bundled with it.

All of us need or want to download programs, software and applications on a pretty regular basis and so the trick is to take a few moments to carefully read the EULA – the end user license agreement and not just click 'OK' when you're downloading something. Any check boxes relating to a PUP might have been pre-checked so make sure that you uncheck them if you don't want the add-on.

As I mentioned above, it can't be overstated how important it is not only pay attention but to also have a good anti-malware software running on your PC. Install it, run it and make sure there is nothing unwanted hiding on your computer. To remove lpmxp2149.com virus from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove "Ads by AllDaySaving" ad pop-up (Uninstall Guide)
4 Sep 2014, 8:28 pm
If you've just noticed that you are suddenly seeing a proliferation of "Ads by AllDaySaving" pop-up adverts on your computer, you're under siege from full page screens displaying misleading pop-ups, or you're seeing a suspiciously high amount of links to weight loss, gaming, gambling, or adult websites when you're online then there is a very high likelihood that you have been infected with adware. Please use this guide to remove Ads by AllDaySaving and any associated malware from your computer.


Adware, or advertising supported software to give it its full name, is something that experts in the IT industry have previously estimated to affect as high as 80% of all home PCs. That's a huge amount! And while not all adware is malicious, this number also includes spyware, which adware is often bundled with – and that's the really worrying bit. Adware that displays AllDaySaving ads also has spyware modules to track what websites you are visiting, how much time you spend on them and your search terms as well. Of course, it's not a usual spyware program that can steal your passwords or any other valuable information but it's steal a threat. And it's always better to know than not to know because it's not just annoying ad pop-up, it's also spyware. In addition to this, most of us who have been infected by adware or spyware haven't got a clue how it got there. This is so true for AllDaySaving adware as well. Even scarier is the fact that if you have spyware on your computer the chances are you don't know about it. Luckily, this one doesn't hide but instead displays annoying and very often misleading ads.

That's because this adware is a lot more obvious than any type of spyware: it will show you the aforementioned adverts, links or pop-up windows and it can divert you to websites you don't want to visit. It can also have another unwanted knock on effect and make your PC run far more slowly. And whilst not all adware is harmful, chances are you don't want "Ads by AllDaySaving" on your machine for that reason alone.

AllDaySaving Adware is a program running on your computer that shows you adverts when you're online and connected to the Internet. It has been created to generate revenue for the developer, and is often used as a trade off - enabling you to download a program for free while the adverts cover the developer's programming costs.

Spyware is different: this is a dangerous program that monitors the way you use your computer and logs your browsing habits, including your log ins, user names and passwords. Spyware is usually installed without your knowledge and through deceptive means. You can find a list of spyware programs here.

Adware and spyware are both often lumped under the heading of 'computer virus' but, although adware can be annoying, and spyware can be dangerous, neither of them typically cause as much carnage as a true virus can. The other similarity is that they both observe your browsing habits – this is so adware can tailor make its ads to suit your interests and spyware, as seen, can potentially commit fraud or identity theft. They will both also cause your computer to run far slower than usual due to the tracking software they've installed on your machine.

In both cases, AllDaySaving adware and software are often bundled with other programs that you've downloaded which is why you need to exercise caution when you're downloading files from the Internet. Unfortunately there is no one antivirus program to protect you from all malware – or adware - so being vigilant and installing an additional anti-malware program is a good idea.

One more thing, it probably won't be listed as AllDaySaving in Control Panel. In our case it was named Grillaprice. Yours can be different. The easiest way to identify which program may cause these problems is to list all programs by install date. What is more, most of the time Publisher information is empty. Apparently, scammers do not have time for this.

To remove Ads by AllDaySaving from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!
