    I tried various things but the only one that worked was removing Web assistant, which was installed with Incredibar, neither of which I accepted.

  4. Wolfie says:

    Thank you for the information.

    I removed the web assistant from extensions as well and that did the trick.

  15. George Woods says:

    Thanks you so much, I didnt have a clue what was going on and since I have an old laptop, the flash ads meant streaming videos was a nightmare. Once again thanks a lot bro!!

  16. Destiny says:

    Well, I suppose I’ll go disable Freecorder if that’s the problem. That’s a shame. I love Freecorder..

  17. Glenn says:

    Thanks, Cleared freecorder add ons and cookies. No more coupon drop down or unwanted search engine.

    Still got freecorder, could they return if I continue to use it?
    Great article.

  18. AparnaL says:

    1clickdownloader was doing it! Uninstalled it! Thank you very much!

  19. ace576 says:

    Note that coupondropdown now also poses as legitimate sounding add-ons. Try enabling and disabling one by one to see which is the cause.
    Coupondropdown was posing as ‘google update’ on my browser.

  20. Jeff says:

    Thank you! “Freecorder” was the culprit. Just had to remove the program. Cheers!

  21. yusran.y says:

    Thanks for the advice dude. It turned out to be Putlocker Downloader add-on. Pretty irritating.

  22. mtwellington says:

    Thanks for your help. It was FreeHDSport that was the culprit. Dont even know how it got there?

  25. muddassir says:

    OMFG Thank you Soo much! I had like all these disgusting ads on my youtube browser :/ with like 50 year old women asking for dates chilling on my desktop with bikinis and shit my parents got so mad, they thought I was doing some very innapropriate… but thank you so much just had to disable putlocker from google chrome!


  26. Stan says:

    just felt I’d add from my experience, I had this coupondropdown but it was under “yontoo” which had a bunch of internet crap I didnt want

  27. Milkad says:

    Thank you!!!! O.M.G. THANK YOU!!!!

  28. E. says:

    Putlocker did it, which I discovered by accident when doing a routine clearout. 24 hours later it was back. Turned out to be TornTV the second time, as mentioned in other comments. I never downloaded or installed either of them.

  29. AnneCbxl says:

    Thank you!

  30. Michael L'Athorn says:

    TornTV can also be responsible for this. Removing TornTV from Chrome got rid of the CouponDropDown pest as well.

  31. S.G. says:

    Thank You! It was something called “TornTV” for me. Great how to site. Thanks again.

  32. OdaO (@OdaO) says:

    Hallelujah! I just got rid of the horrid Coupon drop down, by removing my recently installed/updated(don’t recall which) FLASH PLAYER!!

    I really could not believe Flash Player could be the sinner, but being my only recent installment, I had to take the chance, and removed it!

    Instantly, all my troubles with Coupon drop down(with all these ads from women offering their services.. ugh!) were gone!!

    • OdaO (@OdaO) says:

      PS. It also affected all the links in whatever page I visited, the same phone-ad popped up every time, and unabled the link, really.

      I will still need a plug-in like Flash player, but which other are there? Will the malware follow again if I uplode Flash, or was I unlucky the first time? I do not remember if my newly uploded Windows protection program were uploded before or after Flash, but no malware was detected on my computer, even right before I chose to remove Flash. I wonder why?

      I guess I must dare to try uploding Flash again.. but not just yet!

      • OdaO (@OdaO) says:

        Ten more days of coupon drop dead hell.. and finally I found the last culprit of the PutLocker Downloader, in the Firefox Add-ons, when I clicked on ‘Tools’ (basic yes, but I was too exhausted to see beyond removing programs)
        Thank you so much!!!<3 Your recipe over here did it!

    • mr. flintstone says:

      Thanks! I did also update my Flash player and this is how it got in. I lived with the friggin adware for over a month.
