CoupMania is another in a long list of annoying adware products. It is not a serious or malicious piece of software, but like other forms of adware, it can open up doors to other infection and be an overall nuisance. Therefore, it is best to remove CoupMania as soon as you are aware of its presence.
CoupMania appears to be distributed through a vast network. In other words, it isn’t a manual download and install from a single website. It seems to be distributed through a bunch of different third-party installers. It has appeared in the Amonetize, Vittalia and Installrex installers. The best way to avoid this type of software is to steer clear of file sharing websites. It also rears its head on torrent sites and download websites.
The program is based on the JustPlugIt engine. There are a ton of apps coming from this engine that originates from the Multiplug code. One common footprint of these types of software is that every installation of the program will randomize the name. But, it is still easy to pick out that it is the CoupMania program.
The bad news if you find CoupMania on your computer is that you are probably infected with other issues. There is a good chance that it was bundled with some other unwanted programs and pieces of software. It has been known to be installed with EZDownloader and Websearch.serchfix.info and many others. If you are starting to see a bunch of pop ups and unsolicited ads then there is a good chance you are infected with this or another piece of adware.
In addition to having a virus scanner installed on your machine, you need to be careful when installing software from a third party website. Always opt for the custom install because this will give you the option to pick and choose the software you want installed in most cases. Even if you choose the custom install you need to be careful and read all the install options because they will still try to sneak the programs on your computer with confusing install options.
