Third-party malware this adware bundles with may include trojan horses, hijackers, and spyware that may collect a prohibited amount of user data, install additional malware, cause browser redirects, and corrupt internet proxy settings.
Most advertisement blocking programs will not block ads powered by RightCoupon because of its use of browser helper objects and embedded script placed in third-party software. The adware may not be browser based. Some pop-up advertisements may also appear while a user is offline.

Removing and uninstalling third-party applications will sometimes get rid of RightCoupon ads and stop other problems from occurring; However, this will not fix corrupted internet browser settings or repair corrupted proxy settings.
