What is CioupScananeer?

CouponScanner is an adware extension that plugs into the user's web browser for IE, Chrome and Firefox and will display additional advertisements in search engines such as Bing and Google. It installs itself as an extension (BHO/plugin) and runs as a background process. This adware program creates an entry in Add or Remove Programs however removing this entry might stop the adware from running, but will not stop ads from displaying. Once installed, it displays ads by injecting new ads in search as well as various web pages that use 3rd party advertising and replaces these ads with its own. The program users the InstalleRex download manager from WebPicks Holdings to install itself on the user's PC.

The software is a variant of a known adware (AKA SaveAs, SaveNShare, DownloadKeeper) but is re-branded to mask its origination although is includes many of the same components.
