Coupon Companion Plugin – adware / malware removal.

I recently installed a audio driver to fix a problem with the “what you hear” input device. Shortly after that when browsing hyperlinks would throw pop-up window linking to an ad for something. Here is an example.

At the bottom of the window was “Coupon Companion Plugin” banner. With some research I found this is adware.

I followed the steps to remove the adware. Hoping this works. I doing this I also discovered my machine also had “InfoAtoms” on it . More adware. I followed the following article to remove this as well.

It seems we can expect more of this in the future. Stay safe my friends.
