Deal Slider

What is Deal Slider?

This is a potentially unwanted web browser extension that is designed to deliver search-based hijacking/injection as well as contextual advertising. The program does this by modifying the user's home and search page in order to monetize a user's search activities. By installing a Browser Helper Object (BHO) in Internet Explorer, the extension has the ability to monitor and track a user web browsing activities and display various banner and link-context ads in addition to its search redirection.

From the EULA:
The Plugin customizes and enhances your Internet browsing experience by allowing you, the end user, to assert more control over your viewing experience. The Plugin does this by providing various features, which may include search links, text links, video, product comparisons and reviews, coupons, graphics or banners, or other interactive content displayed through your browser.

The Plugin also delivers ads. Let's be clear about that - by downloading and using the Plugin, you will see various types of ads based on the website you are visiting. This advertising is what enables us to provide the Plugin to you free of charge (our advertisers pay us so that you don't have to). Note that the ads are not associated with or endorsed by the websites on which they are displayed, as the ads are delivered to you directly through your web browser.

The Plugin currently displays several basic types of advertising, including but not limited to:
- sponsored links
- traditional display advertisements, such as banner ads, "pop-unders" and interstitial ads
- coupons
- video targeted ads (which are displayed when you download a video)

The sponsored links may sometimes appear as "in-text" advertising, which is a term we use for a feature of the Plugin that makes advertising links appear when you hover your cursor over certain words and phrases on a website you are visiting. We try to make the links relevant to these bits of text. (The website itself has nothing to do with the links or the related advertising content.) Sponsored links may also be displayed in response to keyword searches you enter through Google, Bing and other search engines.

About  (from Engaging Apps)

The Plugin is meant to be fun, but there are some features we want you to know about up front so that you don't get confused. For example, since we give you the Plugin for free, we have to display various types of ads to keep the lights on. The ads are delivered through your browser, and are not associated with a parti...  Read more
