How To Remove UniDeals Adware – Ads by UniDeals Removal

Just wanted to put up a short post before going to bed. I just found a new adware named UniDeals and wanted to give you some removal instructions. UniDeals appears to be a variant of UniSales that I’ve blogged about before. If UniDeals is installed on your computer, you’ll notice new add-ons installed into Firefox and Internet Explorer, called UniSales and YouTubeAdBlocker and a new extension installed into Chrome, with a name that appears to change with each install. I’ll show how to remove UniDeals in this blog post with the FreeFixer removal tool.

I didn’t see any UniDeals ads on the machine, but if it uses the same labelling as UniSales, the ads will say “Ads by UniDeals“.

UniDeals is bundled with a number of downloads. Bundling means that software is included in other software’s installers. This is how UniDeals was disclosed in the installer when I found it.

Generally, you can avoid bundled software such as UniDeals by being careful when installing software and declining the bundled offers in the installer.

As usual when I stumble upon some new bundled software I uploaded it to VirusTotal to verify if the anti-virus scanners there find anything suspicious. Only 2 of the anti-malware scanners detected the UniDeals file. Avira reports UniDeals as ADWARE/MultiPlug.Gen4 and ESET-NOD32 calls it a variant of Win64/Adware.MultiPlug.F.

Hopefully the others will catch up in the next days.

All you need to do to remove UniDeals is to check the UniDeals files in the scan result and click the Fix button. A reboot of your machine may be required to complete the removal. Here’s a few screenshots that should help you along the way:

Hope this helped you remove the UniDeals adware.
