What is Supreme Savings? Adware or Spyware?
The “Tiger Savings” Adware is a malicious add on that hackers hide in other programs and installations and once it is installed it will deliver a non stop flood of pop ups and advertisements. This doesn’t stop and it will eventually crash the computer because it sucks up all of the memory, forcing the computer to fail and the system to crash. Very similar to Browse to save, this can completely ruin a computer and it is quite possible that all of the information saved on the hard drive will be lost forever if it is not backed up on a cloud server or external hard drive.
This is an adware that any Windows based computer can easily catch, regardless of the browser that is used. It is compatible with Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer, and will change the settings in all of those browsers to redirect the users to the “Tiger Savings” homepage every time a browser window is opened. This site may look like a legitimate site, but the users will begin to just see advertisements and then a flood of pop up ads that will not stop.
Many users will simply try to uninstall the Tiger Savings Adware but they will soon learn that the pop ups will not stop, because it digs deep inside the system files and buries files deep, making just a simple uninstall ineffective. At this point the user will begin to think that something is seriously wrong, because the computer will run very slow and it will continue to slow down, to the point that it crashes and the potential danger can be irreversible if not handled right away.
