What is CoolPic?
While at first glance CoolPic looks very promising, in reality it is just another adware program. This browser extension claims to provide users with the ability to edit pictures and various images. However, these promises are just a trick used to induce users to download the software. If this adware enters your computer, you will soon start looking for ways to remove CoolPic. We urge you to read this article, in order to find out what exactly this program does and what is the best way to delete it from your computer.
What does CoolPic do?
Once the ad-supported application infiltrates your system, you will immediately be introduced to various ads. All kinds of discounts, promo codes, banners, pop-ups, in-line ads, etc. will appear in all your browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) and will not let you browse peacefully. Since the program presents you the advertisements that correspond with the page you are currently viewing, it should not be strange that some users find them interesting. However, few realize that the adware manages to customize the ads by following users’ activities. The gathered information is used to make the ads relevant to the user, but it is also shared with the third parties. If that is not something you are comfortable with, we advise to eliminate CoolPic.
Another thing which is very important to know if you want to understand the true risk CoolPic represents is the owners of the ads. Since the adware holds no responsibility over the contents of the ads, it means that the ads you see on your screen can easily belong to cyber crooks. If you click such an ad, you will doubtlessly get infected with malware which is something you must do everything to avoid. Take care of your system and delete CoolPic before your computer gets filed with viruses, Trojans, worms, etc.
To protect your computer from these programs in the future, you need to understand how the adware entered your PC. Such applications usually travel bundled with freeware from such pages like softonic.com, soft32.com, and download.com. If you often acquire free of charge software from these websites, make sure to follow every step of the installation wizard. When you see suspicious software, click the Deselect button.
