If you suddenly notice changes in your Internet clients and many Ads by Ext Coupons, this means that a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) has been installed on your computer. The suspicious add-on is distributed with the promise to enhance the on-line shopping experience of the clients. However, this statement is highly doubtful as the legitimacy of the promoted sites is unverified. Although some people can be misled by the description, a significant part of the people detect the presence of Ext Coupons when it is already too late. This happens because the program, which functions as typical adware, travels together with another cost-free program. The only way to notice it before giving your permission is to perform the installation process through the "Advanced" method. When the PUP settles in your system, it creates numerous pop-ups, banners and in-text ads, that attempt to boost the Internet traffic towards its partners. Clicking on the ads is not encouraged because the user may be transferred towards potentially harmful sites, which can result in an infection. As the adware-related extensions tend to be stubborn, you should perform the removal process with an advanced anti-malware application.
