How to remove CouponDropDown (Virus Removal Guide)

CouponDropDownWhat is CouponDropDown?

CouponDropDown, also mistakenly referred to as Coupon Drop Down is an unethical advertising platform (adware) sponsors can use to display advertisements and coupons. If CouponDropDown is attached to your internet browser as a browser helper object, while browsing the internet many unwanted popup advertisements will appear. These popup advertisements are sometimes blue tags stating you have a numerical amount of coupons. CouponDropDown also displays advertisements from third parties and promotes link click-through in order to gain revenue via CPC. CouponDropDown advertisements will usually say click to continue by CouponDropDown.
Coupon Drop Down publicly documents that they are an advertising product, stating “CouponDropDown is an ad supported product and will show you advertisements as you browse the web”.

Also note, Coupon Drop Down uses in-text advertisements similar to Text Enhance and primarily bundles with FB Photo Zoom and other third party add-ons and extensions.

CouponDropDown can be voluntarily installed with third party applications such as freeware and shareware but has been reported to affect internet browsers without permission, therefore classifying CouponDropDown as a browser hijacker. CouponDropDown may also bundle with third party extensions.

If CouponDropDown and the CouponDropDown add-on/extension are affecting your internet browser without consent you are likely infected by third party malware, viruses, and or Trojans.

Use the steps below to detect and remove malware infecting your system and remove unwanted CouponDropDown advertisements via the CouponDropDown and third party add-on or extension.

    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.

    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.

    1. Grclee

      O My, I tried to remove Ads CouponDropDown for a long time and followed another instruction using free malware programs. But still had the problem until removing FreeHDSport.tv. Thanks you so much. I don’t see young Asian girls asking for icky things any more!!

  8. muddassir

    VERY HELPFUL!

  9. Stan

    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

  10. Pingback: What is with the Green words with add popping out?

  11. E.

    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.

    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!!

    1. OdaO (@OdaO)

      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!

      1. OdaO (@OdaO)

        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!

    2. mr. flintstone

      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.

  13. Fuzzy Simpson
