Filed under Adware, Malware


DealDropDown is an add-on extension (sometimes in toolbar form)  usually found installed on systems within their web browser programs like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. When loaded, most times due to an installation application installing DealDropDown as a default setting, the DealDropDown program will automatically run and change internet settings without your approval. These settings will change your default home page and default search engine site choice to the dealdropdown.com site.

DealDropDown by itself is not a virus or malware. It actually comes from a legitimate company but its actions are somewhat misleading in that it changes various internet settings and proves to be very difficult to remove or uninstall from Windows PCs. Most times DealDropDown attempts to provide an abundance of online deals on shopping items. Though DealDropDown may prove to be helpful to some, it is annoying to most, which is why we have provided a SpyHunter antimalware download below that is able to automatically remove all traces of the DealDropDown program and add-on extensions from your system. By removing DealDropDown you will return your system and internet settings back to normal where you can then setup your preffered home page or default search engine.

The process of removing DealDropDown can be tricky, which is why you may use a malware solution to easily remove it from your system.
