Shopping Sidekick Browser Plugin Adware

If you are asked to download and install "Shopping Sidekick", please do not. The maker claims that "Shopping Sidekick" is a browser plugin/add-in that allows users to view a list of coupons for the website they are browsing instantly. But, hundreds of persons have contacted me asking how to remove this browser plugin/add-on. This browser plug-in/add-on is an adware and is sometimes very difficult to remove from your computer after you have installed it.
