Browser Shop is a potentially unwanted program that displays ad windows non-stop when you visit webpages, especially e-commerce websites such as Amazon. These advertisements come in the form of banners and include various special offers that redirect you to untrustworthy websites. Browser Shop is described as a browser plug-in that opens pop-ups with awesome discounts matching the webpages that you’re viewing at that moment. Even if that seems really attractive, Browser Shop can get invasive and pull up advertisements all the time and against your will.
Browser Shop‘s specific goal is to generate revenue for its designers. It generates Internet traffic, gathers information for other pretty shady Internet sites, and opens advertisements within your browser. This type of program generally encourages the installation of other programs that are even more dangerous for your system, such as other toolbars, computer optimization software, etc., so that the adware’s authors can cash in even more. Let’s see how we can wipe out Browser Shop once and for all.
