TightShoppers

TightShoppers

If you want to shop online and get the best deals and coupons to save money, you should avoid TightShoppers. According to our malware specialists, this is an adware application that poses as a useful browser extension. Although it seems that you can only download this tool officially for Google Chrome browsers, we believe that there are other unofficial versions out there on the web that can install into Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer as well. If this adware is on board, you can expect annoying third-party ads covering a relatively big portion of your screen. However, instead of the best available deals you may simply be presented with promoted advertisements and websites. Unfortunately, these may be risky to click on as they may redirect you to unreliable websites. Since this adware may infiltrate your system along with other malware infections, your operating system may already be suffering from multiple attacks. The longer you keep these threats on your computer, the more damage they may do. We recommend that first you delete TightShoppers and then, eliminate all other infections as well to make sure that security is restored on your PC. Read more »

FirstFlix is an adware application that modifies your computer’s DNS settings and allows potentially harmful third-party content to enter.

However, the manual removal instructions below might seem too complicated if you do not have much experience.
