Win Boost Pro 2018

Win Boost Pro 2018

Win Boost Pro 2018 is promoted as a beneficial PC optimizer and cleaner, so a bunch of users decide to install it on their computers consciously. They simply need to click the Download Now button that can be found on its official website http://cleanmypcutils.com/ to get it. Of course, users might find it installed on their computers without their knowledge too since potentially unwanted applications might also be distributed bundled. Win Boost Pro 2018 is a brand new PC optimization tool, but it would be a pure lie if we told you that it does not share similarities with older applications. In fact, it is very similar to Power Cleaner 2019, Power Speedup 2018, and some other programs advertised as powerful PC optimization tools/cleaners. Unfortunately, there is one thing the majority of users who consciously install Win Boost Pro 2018 on their PCs do not know about it – it works as a diagnostic tool if not upgraded by the user. A bunch of people expect that they will get their PCs performance improved in the blink of an eye after installing and launching Win Boost Pro 2018. This is not going to happen until you purchase and activate the license of Win Boost Pro 2018. In our humble opinion, it is not worth investing in Win Boost Pro 2018 despite the fact that it looks reliable because hundreds of other tools that can be trusted 100% exist, and it is no doubt better to invest in one of them instead. Believe us; Win Boost Pro 2018 has been categorized as a potentially unwanted program not without reason. Continue reading to find out more about its modus operandi. Read more »

WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up

The misleading WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up was created to trick you into thinking that you have faced real infections that pose real threats. The number of these alleged threats, of course, can change, but the point is that this number is meant to intimidate you.

It is not. The warning is fictitious, and its purpose is not to inform you but to intimidate you, and make you think that you must call +1-833-426-4666.

Free Forms Now

Free Forms Now

Free Forms Now might seem useful if you are looking for tax, citizenship, or other forms to fill.

Consequently, it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). Naturally, if you do not like the thought it could introduce you to unreliable content, we would advise deleting Free Forms Now before anything goes wrong. The removal process will be explained in the instructions added below the text, but if you want to know more about this PUP, we would recommend reading the rest of this article first. Read more »

BlastGamesNetwork Ads

Have you started seeing BlastGamesNetwork Ads on your screen and cannot get rid of them easily? If so, it is very likely that you have consciously installed the browser extension associated with the online flash games website https://brainyzanygames.com, or it has found a way to enter the system without receiving direct permission from you. No matter how it has entered your system, it would be best that you do not let it stay active because its drawbacks undoubtedly outweigh its benefits. Yes, this piece of software will enable you to play online games for free, but there is a huge possibility that it will flood your screen with BlastGamesNetwork Ads as well, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com say. At first glance, the presence of commercial advertisements might not seem like a huge problem; however, we are sure you will change your opinion soon if BlastGamesNetwork Ads start bothering you every day.

Giyotin Ransomware

Giyotin Ransomware is among the newest ransomware infections detected by specialists at anti-spyware-101.com. It seems that malware targets Turkish-speaking users primarily, but it does not mean that you cannot encounter it. You might find any harmful program installed on your computer if you are not very careful, click on random links and advertisements that are displayed to you, and download tons of all kinds of applications from torrent websites. Luckily, Giyotin Ransomware does not encrypt files on users’ computers even though it places a window with a message in Turkish over the users’ screens claiming that all important files have been encrypted immediately after the successful entrance. According to specialists, this might show that Giyotin Ransomware is still in the development phase or hackers expect that users will send them money immediately after discovering a message opened on their Desktops. Since that window can be closed easily, you will see for yourself that none of your files have been locked – simply tap Alt+F4 to close it. It does not mean that you do not need to do anything else if your files have not been encrypted – you must still remove the ransomware infection from your PC. There is nothing smart about keeping malware on the system, even if it is not extremely harmful, because it might download an update from its C&C server and turn your life into a nightmare.

goDownload Search Plus

goDownload Search Plus

Do you download new programs and extensions frequently? If you do, goDownload Search Plus might seem like a great program. The Chrome webstore installer introduces this potentially unwanted program (PUP) as this “powerful search engine” that, allegedly, can offer you “a variety of unique features and search tools.” The application is presented at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/godownload-search-plus/cbieibobpefaobhfncpimjimbijplebe by gozooms.com. This source promotes “Zooms Start,” “Search by Zooms,” and “Musix.” We do not recommend installing any of these add-ons, especially if you are not willing to research them first. In general, the extension we are discussing is not represented in a very clear or straightforward manner. It doesn’t even seem to have an official downloader. Is this a reason enough to remove goDownload Search Plus? It might be, but we can provide you with other reasons. If you continue reading this report, you will learn how to delete this PUP, and you will understand why that might be the best thing to do. As always, if there are any questions you come up with while reading this report, you can use the comments section to post them. Read more »

EverydayMemo Toolbar

EverydayMemo Toolbar

Did you research EverydayMemo Toolbar before installing it into your Windows operating system and Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox web browser? If you did, the chances are that you did not install it at all. Otherwise, you might have decided that the benefits of the suspicious application outweighed the security risks that are associated with it. If you did not research the application before installing it, you might have been surprised regarding its activity. For example, you should have been surprised by the introduction of the MyWay search engine that is integrated into the interface of the application. Furthermore, you might have expected the app to install as a separate toolbar that floats at the top of the browser. Instead, it is represented via a new tab page, and it might be represented via the homepage of Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers too. Due to this, some remove the toolbar because they believe it to be a browser hijacker. While we do not classify it as a hijacker, we do advise deleting EverydayMemo Toolbar from your browsers.
