Remove "Ads by shopperz22072015" Adware (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
Being too naive when you're online can ultimately result in any number of problems, issues or nightmare scenarios. So if something is trying its best to tempt you into downloading it, stop for a moment and wonder whether you really need this program, game or application, and ask yourself why it is so desperate for you to accept it onto your machine. If you keep getting ads or popups saying "Ads by shopperz22072015" then you should definitely scan your computer for malware.

Of course, the million dollar question is 'how much harm can shopperz22072015 adware do?' Sadly the answer to this is rather a significant amount. Time and effort has gone into creating a convincing looking adware and so the effect they can have is quite drastic. From causing instabilities in your operating system to displaying intrusive advertisements, such adware programs have one aim in mind, and that is to cause as much distress and disruption for you as possible. The conclusion: don't fall prey to something which is trying to sucker you into downloading it if you don't know what it is or where it has come from.

How to avoid shopperz2207201 adware when downloading freeware or shareware

You've discovered the latest must-have application that really will help you embark on that new fitness regime (really!) or the latest episode of your favorite TV show is now available for download. You eagerly rush through the installation, skipping through the wording in the End User License Agreement (boring!) Well that's your first mistake right there because if the file or application is also bundled with adware, you have automatically allowed it to install itself on your PC.

The point is that you actually need to read the licensing agreement. Yes, we know they're often long, and always tedious, but most of them do tell you if they are also going to install that extra program on your machine too. The declaration will probably be confusingly worded and you may also find that check boxes are pre-configured and checked or unchecked in the favor of the shopperz2207201 adware installation.

Is it really worth the hassle of reading the End User License Agreement?

Well we think so and that is because the majority of advertising supported software comes with a tricky little component that installs itself on your PC so that it can track which websites you visit. This data is recorded and sent back (using your internet connection!) to the adware's owner or programmer so that they are able to show you advertising that matches the products or services that you were looking at on those websites.

So to answer our own question, if you are downloading freeware or software, YES, we do think that it is worth spending a few minutes to read the End User License Agreement a little more closely. After all, this is your privacy we are talking about! Now, if your computer is already infected, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. It shouldn't be very difficult to remove shopperz2207201 adware. And next time, pay close attention to programs you install, especially freeware. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!
