What is the ChiliCoupon? I have found that my computer has become very slow since ChiliCoupon is in my computer. I have a well-known antivirus program installed on the computer but it is unable to delete the thing. Why antivirus program cannot handle it? Is there any way to completely deal with the nasty infection? Now, the good news is that there is an effective manual method to solve this problem. Please get your answer below.
ChiliCoupon is classified as a hazardous adware threat which is rampant on the internet via advertisements online. Its goal is to gain benefits from pay-per-click policy by redirecting you to commercial websites. It would revamp the default home page or default toolbar without your permission in order to make space for itself and kidnap the browser. Therefore when you surf the internet, you may not get the websites you want, instead some unsafe websites and advertisements which are not trusted pop up crazily in front of you. What is worse, this malicious adware is able to corrupt the “.exe” file extension so you might be unable to open applications like Word, Excel and etc successfully. Once installed, it makes access way for the other malicious threats to get onto the system also. ChiliCoupon can enter easily onto your computer if you conduct activities like visiting porno websites, playing online gambling or opening attachments of spam emails from a seem-to-be-normal contact user.
Once the computer is infected by ChiliCoupon adware, you will find task manager can’t be used, internet speed is drastically slow and it takes a long time to wait for respond and etc. After it is installed automatically, you will find that the adware alters the web pages you browse and you are flooded with countless advertisements, discount coupons and sponsored links in search results. Actually when you launch the browser and try to surf the internet as usual, ChiliCoupon adware will not allow you to visit the website you want, redirecting all of the webpage to its domain and you will find it is hard to get rid of it. Adware can collect and analyze useful information like sensitive data on the victim computer and report it to the third party. If you want to protect your computer appropriately, you should remove it as quickly as possible.
1. It can not only change your web pages, but also alter other settings to add toolbars, pop-up advertisements, and bookmarks that you did not create.
2. It can modify the homepage settings of your web browser, more commonly by reducing your internet security options. And the worse thing is it prevents you from changing them back.
3. New toolbars or Favorites are installed that give you icons and links to web pages that you don’t want.
4. It may block you from visiting certain website you’d like to visit and show an error page instead.
5. It will display constant pop-up ads, sometimes in such large amounts that you are not able to close neither the ads nor the browser.
ChiliCoupon hijacks your browser to redirect your web search results and changes the homepage and browser settings. To completely uninstall it from an infected system, manual removal is the first choice because sometimes antivirus software cannot pick up the exact computer threat timely or remove it permanently. Now most browser hijackers are quite similar to spyware and adware threats and therefore cannot be removed with the help of popular antivirus products. Users can follow the manual guide here to get rid of this browser hijacker completely.

2. End the malicious process from Task Manager.
Once ChiliCoupon redirect is installed, computer user may notice that CPU usage randomly jumps to 100 percent. At any time Windows always has many running processes. A process is an individual task that the computer runs. In general, the more processes, the more work the computer has to do and the slower it will run. If your system’s CPU spike is constant and remain at a constant 90-95%, users should check from Task Manager and see if there is a suspicious process occupying the system resources and then end it immediately.
(The name of the virus process can be random.)

The purpose of ChiliCoupon is to generate the traffic of promoting websites and gain profits from pay-per-click policy. Once it made a successful invasion, it has the ability to modify system registry settings and files immediately in order to kidnap target browsers. It won’t let you change the settings to get the original domain back and to use your desired website as the default home page. As a matter of fact, what you will get are nasty ads, false messages and etc. What is worse, many antivirus programs are unable to deal with it, so users cannot use antivirus to delete the adware once for all. It can really be a headache for many innocent users. Therefore, the manual removal process is a more effective way to delete the ChiliCoupon completely.
Note: If you are not a computer expert and have no idea how to perform the removal, please contact experts from YooCare Online Tech Support for further help.
