What is adpeakproxy.exe?

AdpeakProxy.exe runs as a service named "AdpeakProxy". This service runs automatically when Windows starts. As a result your computer may become noticeably slower. This program is a part of Adpeak adware that installs malicious web browser extensions and applications: ScorpionSaver, GetSavin, DealCabby, and CouponAmazing. These programs deliver search-based ads. It can also redirect you to misleading websites and inject contextual ads. Adpeakproxy.exe has the ability to monitor and track your web browsing activity and to update itself without your permission or knowledge. The file is not digitally signed. It's usually located in C:\Program Files\ folder. I recommend you to remove adpeakproxy.exe and related adware from your computer. The program isn't essential for Windows and may cause problems. Since it comes bundled with spyware, please scan your computer with anti-malware software.
