If additional advertisements (coupons, popups, banners, overlays, ad blocks, etc.) appear in the browser on almost all websites, which are marked with PremierOpinion Virus and sometimes just a number, then you are a victim of adware (unwanted advertising software ) become. PremierOpinion Virus is often referred to as malware, virus, toolbar or Trojan horse - that is not always correct, but also not wrong. In addition to injecting or importing additional or complete replacement of advertisements, PremierOpinion Virus naturally slows down the access to the visited page, saves additional advertising and tracking cookies on your system in an uncontrolled manner and analyzes all behavior on the Internet via the computer. Many of those affected also complain about a very slow computer, even without a web browser being called up. In any case, this browser hijacking should be prevented and the adware properly removed, because third-party companies have taken control of the browser.

The reason for this are advertising supplements that are contained in the installation routine or are reloaded by it and have increased significantly recently. The program itself is still freeware, but the installation routine is AdWare. The manufacturers (programmers) of this freeware try in this way to earn a little on their software, since the AdWare PremierOpinion Virus is paid for every installation. One can just develop understanding for this.

Increasingly, however, portals such as CHIP, which have been reputable for years, are also spreading this form of adware and advertising supplements. You can read more about this CHIP installer here. Other portals that use such downloaders are: ComputerBild, Softonic, GIGA Downloads etc. We recommend strictly avoiding such portals.
