Hello readers. Another day, another blog post. Today I wanted to talk about a Adware called UniSales and thought I should give you some removal instructions. UniSales appears to be a variant of BuyNSave that I wrote about previously. If UniSales is installed on your computer, you will see ads labeled Ads by unisales added into Google’s search results, new add-ons called “Unisales” installed into Firefox and Internet Explorer, pop-up windows labeled “Ads by unisales” and overlay ads, also tagged “Ads by unisales”.
I’ll show how to remove UniSales in this blog post with the FreeFixer removal tool.
UniSales is distributed by a tactic called bundling. Bundling means that a piece of software is included in other software’s installers. Here’s how it appeared in the installer:
Generally, you can avoid bundled software such as UniSales by being careful when installing software and declining the bundled offers in the installer.
When I stumble upon some new bundled software I always upload it to VirusTotal to verify if the anti-virus programs there detect something interesting. 29% of the anti-virus scanners detected the file. ESET-NOD32 names UniSales as a variant of Win32/AdWare.MultiPlug.BN, F-Secure calls it Gen:Variant.Adware.Graftor.153998, McAfee detects it as Artemis!7E61FEF6948F and McAfee-GW-Edition names it BehavesLike.Win32.Adware.hm.
I’m sure you’d like to remove UniSales, and that’s pretty straightforward with FreeFixer. Select the UniSales files, as shown in the screenshots below, click Fix, and restart your machine and the problem should be gone.
Hope this helped you remove the UniSales Adware.
I stumbled upon UniSales while testing out some downloads that are known to bundled lots of unwanted software. Any idea how you got UniSales on your computer? Please let me and the readers know by posting a comments. Thanks a bunch!
Thank you for reading.
