The only thing that will certainly freeze thanks to this malicious program is your browser activity. In today’s article we’ve tried to provide an answer to all questions whirling around in your head concerning this parasite as well as offer you a comprehensive removal guide. Trust us, you will especially need the removal guide. Even if you thought that keeping discount freeze on your PC would be a somewhat good idea, you will be quickly convinced that this program is not only utterly useless and incredibly irritating but also very harmful as well. The ugly truth behind discount freeze’s shiny wrapping is that this is nothing but an adware parasite. Of course its developers want to make you believe their creation is something you need but are really hackers the right people to give you advice? This parasite is supposed to generate all the latest coupons, price comparisons, product discounts and offers when in actuality it only generates issues. Its sole purpose is to make money for its developers, not to help you save money. There’s quite a difference between the two, right? The virus makes a solid effort to flood your entire PC screen with ads (which are just as unwanted as they are unsafe), serves as a back door to various other infections and overall slows down your machine till it’s practically unusable. Frankly speaking, there is absolutely NO reason why the discount freeze program should be a part of your life.
How did I get infected with?
We would be really impressed if you knew when exactly this sneaky parasite entered your PC system. Hackers love applying stealthy techniques and love creating confusion – that turns bundled freeware into currently the most effective infiltration method. What does that mean in practice? It means that unless you keep track of every single free program that you download off of the Internet, there’s no way to know for sure how the discount freeze parasite got to you. Our advice is to trust legitimate websites only and always keep an eye out for infections when you install software. Most adware parasites (this one included) need about as much as a moment of negligence to slither into your PC. Therefore, unless you’re deliberately trying to corrupt your machine, you will prefer the advanced option over the basic one in the Setup Wizard. That is the only efficient way to spot any “bonus” program on time and prevent it from causing a mess all over your computer. All PC infections could create immense chaos. And, if given the possibility, they will.
Why are these ads dangerous?
First and foremost, the discount freeze program isn’t even remotely beneficial whatsoever. Once it gets installed (as we mentioned, without your permission), the parasite automatically adds a malicious browser extension (once again, without your permission) to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. The parasite then injects all your once trusty browsers with an endless stream of pop-up ads, pop-under-ads, banners, interstitials, in-text ads, hyperlinks and so on till the moment your overwhelmed browser just starts crashing and/or freezing. Now, let’s leave the fact this behavior is extremely annoying aside for a while and focus on the danger it hides. Being typical unoriginal adware, the discount freeze parasite exists solely to generate web traffic thus helping its developers gain money. The trouble is, hackers are willing to display you all kinds of commercials, links and “discounts” regardless of which website they would lead you to. Simply said, clicking anything distributed by the virus is quite a gamble and you never know whether you will come across a real advertisement, a fake one (resulting in a cyber scam) or a corrupted one (resulting in malware). Is it really a risk worth taking? Are you willing to play by the rules or crooks when it’s more than obvious that they are only interested in their revenue? Speaking of revenue, the malicious discount freeze parasite has access to your entire browsing-related information so hackers could happily receive it and sell it to third parties to make even more money at your expense. As you can see, there is only so much lies and deceit a person could take so you should waste no time and immediately get rid of the parasite and all its fraudulent tricks. If you decide to uninstall the sneaky discount freeze adware infection manually, please follow the removal instructions you will find down below.
