How to Delete Ebates

By Kefa Olang

Ebates Moe Money Maker is an annoying adware program that secretly installs on your computer and launches automatically when you start your computer. Once launched, Ebates displays frequent and annoying pop-up advertisements begging you to save money by shopping through Ebates.
