What is Shopping Optimizer?

Shopping Optimizer is yet another adware that makes web browsing disturbing. Being promoted by half-true promises, that Shopping Optimizer will grant the user coupons, best offers and discounts, the adware does what it says and shows the ads with different products. Nevertheless these offers cannot be trusted, as they are just a trigger for redirecting to promoting sites. The ads are so intrusive and numerous that avoiding landing on unwanted sites becomes problematic. As no one can tell what sites the adware may promote, it is safer to remove Shopping Optimizer at once.
