Dynamic Pricer is a PUP (potentially unwanted program)/adware that may enter a PC as an additional program through a variety of packaged freeware that computer users download from questionable download websites. Dynamic Pricer may also be integrated into the PC without the computer user's approval. The authors of Dynamic Pricer may also use the pay-per-install method to disperse and insert it on the computer system. The pay-per-install technique may be used to disperse not only Dynamic Pricer itself, but also associated toolbars, plug-ins, add-ons, adware and browser hijackers. Upon installation, Dynamic Pricer may alter the default browser parameters on the PC and display disturbing pop-up advertisements and notifications with the aim to most likely generate advertising revenue from clicks on ads and messages for its authors. Dynamic Pricer may continuously divert computer users to unknown websites and, thus, raise Internet traffic of sponsored websites that may promote various products and services.
