Sale Charger (also referred to as Sale Charger virus ) is a potentially unwanted program and adware that injects the webpages you visit with pop-up and targeted advertisements.

What is Sale Charger?

Sale Charger adware and similar ad-serving programs are usually self promoted as free shopping applications that can be used to help internet users find online coupons and deals.

Sale Charger serves ‘targeted’ advertisements to users while they browse the internet. This is a privacy concern because targeted advertisements can only be produced by Sale Charger adware if the ad-serving program has access to user browsing data, including all browsing activities, bookmarks, and browser history. This information is observed and used to generate advertisements it feels internet users are most likely to click on based off of their past and current browsing habits.

Furthermore, Sale Charger bundles with additional unwanted programs, malware, and other possible malicious threats. This means that it might be necessary to uninstall multiple programs from Windows and remove multiple browser add-ons and extensions from Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. Many of these programs can not easily be found on a computer system without third-party security software.

Third-party programs and malware that can bundle with Sale Charger adware will cause other issues aside from pop-up advertisements. Other issues include unwanted browser redirections to sponsored webpages, like Jogostempo.com, corrupted computer productivity, and decreased internet speed.

Sale Charger adware and the additional programs that it bundles with also manufacture new tasks and change existing Windows start-up settings in order to run every time the operating system starts and remain enabled if disabled by the user. Programs and browser attachments that may arrive with this deceptive piece of adware can also cause other issues for computer and internet users aside from pop-up advertisements, including browser redirections and a loss in computer functionality and internet connectivity. Furthermore, if Sale Charger is manually removed, it is possibly that the adware or another one in its place will return before a week has passed.

How did Sale Charger get on my computer?

Sale Charger adware is usually packed inside installers for third-party freeware and download managers associated with distribution websites such as Cnet, Softonic, and others. Users who seek to download and install third-party free may be presented with an opportunity to accept or decline an offer to install Sale Charger adware and other programs; However, the request to decline Sale Charger from installing is often ignored by the installers and managers, or presented in a very confusing and deceptive manner.

Some adware like Sale Charger may also be automatically downloaded in the background without user consent alongside third-party unwanted programs.

We particularity found Sale Charger adware packed inside a third-party installer for a fake and malicious flash player update.
