Shop Time has been classified as a potentially unwanted program for a reason. Not only does this nasty adware parasite turn browsing the Web into a nightmare but it also has the impudence to claim that it enhances your Internet experience as the same time. Needless to say Shop Time can’t enhance anything. Just like all similar adware programs, it was created to serve one purpose only – make hackers rich. In case you’re interested to know who is responsible for bringing Shop Time to life, the company is called SuperWeb LLC. Does it sound familiar? The name should speak for itself and we’ve had numerous opportunities to write about the issues this company has enriched the cyber world with. Shop Time is not the great exception. This malicious adware plugin is supposed to bring to you coupons, deals and product offers, not malware. Unfortunately, being a PC infection, the only thing Shop Time will offer you is a headache. So, to sum up: it’s not a useful application, it will not enhance your browsing experience, it will not save you time, it will not save you money and it will make an admirable effort trying to let more viruses enter your PC. Why exactly would you need Shop Time in your life? To learn more about this nasty application, keep on reading.

How did I get infected with?

Adware-type parasites have their malicious ways to travel the Web. And you should know that such infections usually apply stealthy techniques so they manage to both infect you and leave you completely oblivious to that. What is even worse that having your PC compromised? Having your PC compromised and not knowing about it. A rule of thumb for the future – always watch out for potential intruders when you download programs off of the Internet. With bundled freeware being the most effective distribution method at the moment, you simply cannot afford to underestimate any threat. Our advice is to opt for the Custom/Advanced option in the Setup Wizard as this will allow you to be attentive in the installation process. Therefore, you could have deselected Shop Time instead of letting it penetrate into your device if only you were a little bit more careful and a little bit more cautious. What is done is done but you should know that this parasite is a relatively easy threat to delete; there are much more serious infections out there that would love to wreck havoc on your computer. You should also make sure to avoid spam email-attachments, spam messages and third-party web links because they might turn out to be corrupted.

Why are these ads dangerous?

First of all, Shop Time is useless. It promises to help you find the best deals online but in reality every single web link it generates is unreliable. You should be perfectly aware of the danger this thing hides because the parasite itself doesn’t really appear to be harmful. But it is. Many PC users make the crucial mistake to keep it and ignore the fact it’s malicious. However, the minute you click ANY of the ads brought to you by the parasite is the moment you realize exactly how harmful this nasty program could be. The virus is ad-supported which means all commercials it displays are sponsored and they could lead you to practically any website – safe, fake, corrupted, doesn’t matter. All that matters is the fact hackers gain money out of it so your cyber safety is your concern and yous only. Once it successfully infiltrates your PC, the Shop Time parasite infects your browsers with ads through a malicious add-on that it installs without bothering to ask for permission first. Did we also mention that the parasite is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer? It is. Moreover, it’s incredibly resourceful and the ads it generates will be popping up on every single website you visit. It’s quite ironic that the program which was originally supposed to enhance your browsing experience will be the one to absolutely demolish it. Fighting with all the commercials is useless because until you deal with the virus that causes them, they will just keep on appearing all the time. In addition, the Shop Time program steals personal information and even though identity theft is the worst case scenario, it’s still possible. Do you really want to test your luck that badly? Due to the parasite’s presence on your computer, the machine itself will inevitably underperform, crash, freeze and experience some overall difficulties. The Internet connection might also have some problems and the parasite’s shenanigans could even result in some additional toolbars that get installed behind your back. Long story short, it’s about time for Shop Time to go. If you decide to remove the parasite manually, please follow the comprehensive removal guide down below.
