How to remove Additional Offer (Virus Removal Guide)

Additional Offer

Additional Offer is cross-browser adware that has been marked by numerous internet security analysts for suspicious behavior. This program will often be detected as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) and may bundle alongside additional malware.

Additional Offer

Once Additional Offer is installed, the unwanted program and associated software will begin to access, observe, and collect user information, such as a user’s complete browsing activity and history. The browser add-on and extensions associated with this program will also have specific permissions that allow them to change existing internet browser settings of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer, such as bookmarks and themes. Furthermore, the program and associated items can also change the homepage and internal search engine of affected browsers in order to cause unwanted browser redirects to websites such as Lasaoren.

Potential Additional Offer malware is primarily delivered to a computer system via third-party programs, including malicious files. This program may be used to update primary items installed to the infected computer system.

Additional Offer may cause pop-up advertisements to appear on Windows Desktop and may also prompt offers to install unwanted programs.
