How Did I Get infected with the Dealster Virus?

Dealster virus mostly infects PCs when they come bundled with a variety of free software that are downloadable from the Internet. It is distributed through various monetization platforms during installation. When you install other free software like Download managers, PDF creators, video recording or streaming, then Dealster gets bundled into their installation process. Dealster gets installed simultaneously along with installation of this free software.

Dealster displays advertisements in boxes which contain various available coupons or as underlined keywords. When these are clicked on by the user, it displays an advertisement which says that it is brought to you by Dealster. The whole functioning of this adware can be very annoying for the user, since it interferes with the browsing experience. The Prime motive of Dealster is to generate revenue by creating web traffic and collect sales leads for malicious or suspicious websites which constantly displays sponsored links and advertisements within your web browser.
