ActiveDeals is one of those misleading web browser extensions or add-ons that are distributed via bundling with other free programs. Typically, users may download ActiveDeals because they were misled to think that the application would provide them with deals and discounts from around the Web, saving time and money. However, it is more likely to find ActiveDeals bundled with another free program in order to get a higher distribution rate. ActiveDeals is not going to enhance your online shopping experience as promised, but may cause your browser to display annoying ads. Adware extensions such as ActiveDeals are also known to keep track of IP address, frequently visited websites, etc. In addition, you may notice that your computer has become sluggish due to a higher CPU usage caused by ActiveDeals.
