Introduction of RocketSale

Have you been annoyed a lot lately by the pop-up ads by RocketSale? Where do these ads come from? Has your browser been hijacked? This RocketSale claims itself as a useful application that helps users find discounts, coupons and best offers online. It’s supposed to be a good helper especially for users who are fond of shopping online. However, it’s reported to be a trouble which not only affects the browser efficiency, but interrupts users’ online sessions.

RocketSale can be categorized as a browser adware. A browser adware often affects browser efficiency. It can automatically change the default settings of the affected browsers including the home pages, search engines, toolbars and extensions. When users go online, they will find themselves automatically logged on some unknown websites. And each time they try to search something, they will be interrupted by tons of pop-up ads by RocketSale all over the websites as the ads can overlap the information on the websites.

Users may also get redirected every once in a while to fishy links that are used to promote PUPs developed by freeware developers. In other words, computer may be filled with many unwanted programs like LessTabs and Caramava to slow down its general performance which could provide chances for third party online to bring more troubles. Hence, one should get rid of RocketSale adware and its pop-ups completely.
