PDF To Pro

PDF To Pro

PDF To Pro is meant to provide you with access to popular converter tools, and that already lets you know that it is not useful. If you end up installing this extension, your New Tab page on Google Chrome is replaced, and the interface of the introduced webpage presents easy-access links to websites, where users can, allegedly, convert files. The websites that the PUP (potentially unwanted program) promoted at the time of research were cloudconvert.com, allfilesconverter.com, and freepdfconvert.com. It goes without saying that you do not need to install anything to access these websites. On the contrary, it is easier to access them without any extensions installed. All you have to do is visit the website, click Ctrl+D keys to bookmark it, and then you can access it directly from your browser’s homepage. This is not the only reason we recommend deleting PDF To Pro. In fact, it is not even the main reason. We suggest removing the PUP because we think that using it could be dangerous. Read more »

SearchZone

SearchZone

When you find an extension that has the word “search” in its name, you might assume that it is search-focused.

Do you already have a plan on what you want to do? If that is the case, the instructions below should assist you. If you want to learn more about the extension first, please continue reading.

C4H Ransomware

C4H Ransomware

Do you believe that C4H Ransomware has invaded your Windows operating system and corrupted your personal files? That is very easy to figure out because once this infection encrypts files, it attaches the “.C4H” extension to their names. This extension is added as a mere marker, and even if you delete it from the files’ names, they will not be restored. Some victims might rush to remove C4H Ransomware to restore their files, and while this threat must be eliminated from the infected systems, the files cannot be recovered in that way. In fact, we do not know if your files can be recovered at all. Perhaps you can find and employ a legitimate third-party decryptor, but you certainly do not want to trust cybercriminals to help you. They promote their own decryptor in return for money, but they are unlikely to give you anything once you send the payment. Needless to say, this is a tricky situation, but we hope that we will be able to help you untangle the mess. Read more »
