You need to install the coupon printer app on your PC first?! No other way around it. No thanks.

Thanks, heat added. Just printed out my coupon.

I know, I hate coupon software too - but I have access to install it on my work system so thankfully my own system is some what bloat-ware free

I went to test this download and my Avira antivirus caught the couponprinter.exe app as a virus with ADWARE/Coupons.xzki
And the virustotal website has scanned the app and found it malicious too. oO
virustotal.com/en/…26/

Everyone who has downloaded this crap I would seriously recommend a thorough virus scan!

So, at the moment this "deal" gets 177 heat for a virus!!!! Absolutely Unbelievable! Is it worth it for a drink of water? oO

Symantec, McAfee, Microsoft and a few other large organisations deem the file to be safe, it just depends on how strict the software is.

Win32:Adware-gen [Adw] is a program that contains adware, installs toolbars or will display pop-up advertisements on the computer.

Win32:Adware-gen [Adw] it’s technically not a virus, but it does exhibit plenty of malicious traits, such as rootkit capabilities to hook deep into the operating system, browser hijacking, and in general just interfering with the user experience. The industry generally refers to it as a “PUP,” or potentially unwanted program.
The Win32:Adware-gen [Adw] infection is designed specifically to make money. It generates web traffic, collects sales leads for other dubious sites, and will display advertisements and sponsored links within your web browser.

You're not really being helpful flimbo. This software is now very commonly being used. I've seen a lot of big companies use it, and have never heard of anyone being affected by spyware, adware or other malicious software from using it :L Including myself.

Avast has automatically put it in their filter of Win32:Adware-gen [Adw] programs. probably because it creates popups when installing. help.coupons.com/art…ter

Do what you like but people shouldn't miss out on a deal because of paranoia, the fact most virus detectors see it as perfectly ok should be a good sign.

If you don't like it, don't get it. No one's forcing you to.

Did it, AVG flagged it up, allowed it anyway, printed coupon, uninstalled software, thanks!

Thanks

PUPs can be good or bad, Flimo is being very helpful, S/he is highlighting the potential issue, but its down to each user to decide if they want to install the software.

The problem is some of these type installers pull down other components, Just like many programs offer to install Chrome when you install the program, the software writers may get paid by others for doing the install.

You may uninstall the program afterwards but are you sure you uninstalled everything else it brought.

End of the day only you as the PC user can make the choice if you want to install any given software package, but its best you know all the details to make that choice.

BTW CryptoLocker and its clones are on millions of machines, so could be considered in common use, but no-one wants to install that by mistake do they?

So multiple AV vendors flag this as a PUP, Malware guides list it as software that may change or hijack your search engine settings (http://www.malwareremovalguides.info/search-coupons-com-removal-instructions/) but because the vendor (who lets face it is the one who is getting the cash from those search links, says its fine so that's OK?

Musaafir said AVG flagged it as a potential problem but installed it anyway, is it really worth it for a £1 bottle of water?

As I said its your PC and your data, you can do what you want, but just because your comfortable with the risk that does not means others should not at least consider the potential problems. Giving people the data to make an informed choice is never misleading.

i have signed up twice on two emails and got the email. I have printed it once and uninstalled the software. I went to my second email, software got installed and then failed to print, said "Oops! You may have already printed some of these coupons.
We apologise for the inconvenience.

Please tell us what happened via our feedback form"

Anyway round this?

I mean you could try a different PC, or try deleting cookies. It depends how the system detects how many times you've attempted to download the coupons.

There is no risk everyone who downloads the software downloads the exact same thing. There would be a risk if the software was an unknown. But it is a very commonly used piece of software that is used and endorsed by other bigger more reputable companies, and people who actually took the 'risk' of downloading it.

It just bothers me because Flimbo has made a poor assumption :L And instead of actually doing some research he is just continuing to push his point that this nonmalicious software is malicious.

I have done research on this and the general consensus is that couponprinter.exe is ADWARE!!

No you haven't, and also showing exactly the same thing you showed before adds nothing :L

A quick Google for coupon printer throws up plenty of information and forum discussions for you to read on the subject. If all that and the fact that this software is flagged as adware by 12 antivirus products in the screenshot above doesn't tell you that that this software is dubious then you must be a special kind of stupid. X)

As I said previously not only is this software very common, please go ahead and find some evidence of one of the hundreds of thousands that have downloaded this and harmed their computer. Anti-Viruses block or warn about more software than is malicious :L People actually using and testing the file manually instead of relying on an automatic filter can tell you it's safe.

It is isn't a maybe, it's a fact...

The fact that Norton, McAfee and trust-e all clear the software and deem it safe, should tell any sensible person what they need to know. The forum posts about this software if you actually bothered to read them aren't about people having bad experiences or any evidence or adware or spyware, just the fact it 'could' be there. Despite reputable sources saying otherwise. So literally what's the point if you can't trust the major organisations that were made to check and clear non-malicious software from others then what is the point. Never trust anything.

What you've shown is a lack of understanding about what you can accurately infer from virus total. Also, can't see the difference between what printer coupon is trying to achieve and what malicious adware is.
