How to Remove Pricemeter (or Pricemetar) Uninstall Guide

Have you noticed that Pricemeter (Pricemetar) is running on your computer? This program is supposed to help you find the best deals, however the homepage of the program looks pretty shady. The download link appears to download a pdf file containing screenshot of the homepage, rather than a program. This is a certain sign that something is wrong.

So how is this program distributed then? – It uses unethical ways of infecting people’s machines. It is integrated in the installers of other programs and drops its payload once the carrier program is installed. An opportunity is given to choose or decline the offer to install pricemeter, however it is well obfuscated and you are likely to be tricked into installing the adware. You can use the pricemeter removal guide below to delete the pest from the system, but you should know that if pricemeter was installed on your machine, there is a big chance that many other potentially unwanted programs are also installed. Although , pricemeter is not malicious by nature, it is classified as PUP, because of the risks it is hiding. You may also notice that the Pricemeter program is distributed via third-party software download web pages. The purpose of the software is to find you the best offers. Pricemeter claims to compare prices on numerous online shopping pages. Then, it will present to you the best offer. However, do not believe the results so quickly as they are being manipulated and there are some reports that it actually behaves like the adware programs DealPly and Bonanza Deals. Just keep it mind that the presented links are not regulated and you may end up on some dangerous websites containing phishing schemes to steal valuable information from you. You can even downlad malware from such websites. That is why it is recommended to remove pricemeter immediately, before it’s too late.
