PriceZilla Removal Tips
PriceZilla is a browser add-on that is supposed to help you shop better. It is classified as adware, because it inserts various commercials into your browsers. PriceZilla is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. It has an official page, getpricezilla.com, where you can download it. However, it also travels bundled in bad installers that contain ad-supported or even malicious programs.
The official site states that the application will help you find lower prices of products that you view online. It also states that you will be able to surf the Web safely and that you will only see relevant information. Unfortunately, that is not the case. We suggest that you delete PriceZilla as soon as you can.
How does PriceZilla work?
PriceZilla is a clone of such unwanted programs as Priceexpert, Dealicious, Priceturtle, Pricerocket and some others. Despite its advertising, the application does not differ much from other adware. It presents you with unnecessary advertisements that appear no matter which site you are on. You will have to deal with pop-ups, contextual commercials, banners, pop-unders and so on. This becomes annoying rather quickly as the adverts not only take up your browsing space, but also slow down your browsing speed.
Another reason to get rid of PriceZilla has to do with the fact that they are not safe. Some of the commercials presented to you are not legitimate and they should not be trusted. If you click on a fake ad, you may end up on a page that harbors malware or contains some other online scam that you could fall for. Clicking on a fictitious advertisement, even accidentally, could result in serious consequences. If you do not want to risk your computer and your private data safety, you should not keep PriceZilla on your PC.
How to remove PriceZilla?
