KraKra Games

KraKra Games

If you have downloaded the KraKra Games extension onto your Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser, you should have noticed that advertisements have started flooding via your browser. The add-on is introduced to users when they play online games at krakragames.com, and it, allegedly, can give you “access to thousands of games you can play for free.” The suspicious extension is presented at krakragames.com/games/lander.php?, and Google Chrome users can also find it on the Chrome web store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/krakragames/jjnipfcfcddhgepeneeedbiophaehhkb). Although this official source exists, the extension can be spread using unreliable installers, bundled with other questionable pieces of software. Overall, regardless of how the adware (advertising-supported software) got in, you should consider deleting it. If you are inexperienced, or you have no idea why you should remove KraKra Games from your operating system, keep on reading, and you will get all of the answers. If we fail, and you want to ask more questions, do not hesitate to do so via the comments section below. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team will help you as soon as possible. Read more »

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 »

Searchall.network

Searchall.network

Searchall.network might not raise any suspicion until you take a closer look at it. What our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com noticed, while testing the application in question, is that it does not provide information about the publisher’s policy on privacy issues usually explained on Privacy Policy. In fact, we did not find the software’s End User License Agreement document either. It means there might be no knowing how the application may work when searching the Internet with it or what information it could gather. Because of this, we do not think it would be wise to use Searchall.network. Provided you feel the same, we recommend deleting the questionable tool with the instructions located at the end of this article. For users who would want not only to get rid of the suspicious search engine but also learn more about it, we advise reading the text first. Read more »

Godsomware v1.0 Ransomware

Godsomware v1.0 Ransomware

Godsomware v1.0 Ransomware is a malicious threat that blocks user’s screen and displays a ransom note asking to pay for the decryption of user’s files the malware claims to have encrypted. The good news is, even if the infection’s warning claims otherwise, your data may not be ruined. Our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com report the malicious application does not encipher user’s files. It means the malware only pretends to be damaging user’s data to trick him into paying for its decryption. Luckily, we know how to unlock the screen without funding the cybercriminals who developed Godsomware v1.0 Ransomware, and if you want to know how to get rid of it too, you should check the steps available below this report. However, if you wish to find out more about the infection, we encourage you to read our full article too. Read more »

WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up

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. Pay no attention to it or the warning itself because it does not represent the truth. Does not malware exist on your PC? It is possible that it does. Is the malware the warning is identifying real? 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. This number might appear to be legitimate, but it actually belongs to schemers, and if you call it, you could get yourself into some real trouble. Have you done that already? Expect a huge bill. Also, think about the data you might have disclosed because it could be used against you. And what about the removal of the pop-up? As you might have figured out by now, you cannot close it normally. Do not worry, we can show how to delete WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up from your screen in no time. Read more »

MapsScout

MapsScout

MapsScout is a suspicious application that, according to our research team, is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer users. The program is installed as an extension on the first two browsers, but Internet Explorer users install it as an application. Whether you install it thinking it will offer you great services, or you let it is as you install undesirable programs, the first thing we suggest doing is scanning your operating system. If you download the PUP (potentially unwanted program) from mapsscout.com or the Chrome web store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mapsscout-advertising-off/fjclfmhapndgeabdcikbhemimpijpnah), additional programs should not be downloaded. On the other hand, the PUP could also be bundled along with third-party programs and spread using third-party installers. In this situation, scanning the PC and browsers is a must. If malicious threats – besides the PUP – are found, you need to delete them as quickly as you can. If you need to remove MapsScout, read this report, and decide which removal method you want to choose. Read more »

AutoFixer Pro 2018

AutoFixer Pro 2018

AutoFixer Pro 2018 looks like a clone of our recently encountered potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), for example, Power System Care or Advanced Speedup 2018, which is why it falls under the same classification. Just like with the previous versions, the software cannot be thoroughly tested before purchasing its license. Also, based on the scanning results we received, we do not think the software could make any visible changes to the computer’s speed or performance. We will explain this in more detail further in the article. However, if you already know you will choose to eliminate AutoFixer Pro 2018 and do not need any more information about it, you could use the removal steps located below the article. Of course, if you need more help with the PUP’s deletion or have questions about it, you could leave us a message below the article too. Read more »
