Free Ride Games

Free Ride Games is an untrustworthy application that should allow users to play games available on freeridegames.com in an offline mode. Unfortunately, the majority of users download and install this program just because of that, so they are very disappointed when they understand that the major aim of Free Ride Games is to display commercial ads.

Screen Locker

Screen Locker is known to be a serious Trojan infection. It usually slithers onto computers without permission and then immediately starts acting in an undesirable way. The main reason it does that is to convince users to dial the provided number (1-888-315-3446). Even though Screen Locker claims that you will reach Microsoft Certified Technicians, we do not think that it is true, so there is no point in trying to contact them either. In fact, the only thing that you really have to do if you have already encountered Screen Locker is to remove this infection. As you already ...

HydraCrypt Ransomware

HydraCrypt Ransomware is a serious infection that has been created for one purpose – to obtain money from users. Cyber criminals know that it is not an easy task to extort money, so they encrypt all the users’ files and then ask them to pay a ransom. HydraCrypt Ransomware is not a unique threat. Research has shown that it acts in a similar manner as 7ev3n Ransomware, NanoLocker Ransomware, and JS.Crypto Ransomware. Like all these previously released threats, HydraCrypt Ransomware cannot be removed via Control Panel. Of course, you still have to do that, especially if you are not ...

Video Tile

It is possible that you have eight eyes like a spider or you are simply a multitasking person who would like to “watch multiple videos at once” on your screen; you would probably find Video Tile application a great idea, but, in fact, this application only pretends to be “all that.” We have found that this program has only one real function, and that is to display potentially unreliable third-party advertisements on your screen when you go surfing the web.
