Smart System Care

Smart System Care is a PC optimization tool developed by the company PC Fixer Tools. It has been noticed that it shares similarities with Advanced-PCFixer, which is presented to users as a PC optimizer as well. They not only act similarly, i.e. present bogus services to users, but they are also both known to be potentially unwanted programs. Potentially unwanted applications are not harmful threats, but they might still act in an undesirable way, and keeping them installed is not recommended. Therefore, specialists at pcthreat.com recommend getting rid of Smart System Care today. If you decide not to purchase its ...

NoterSave

Although NoterSave is meant to improve your productivity, this application does not deserve your trust. When you install it onto your computer, you are provided with a tool that is meant to help you make notes. This service is not extremely beneficial – considering that there are far more complex and valuable tools available – but it is not dangerous. Of course, that is not why we classify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). The application deserves this classification because, in some cases, it installs adware components without the user’s notice. Have you encountered suspicious advertisements after installing this ...

MiniEdition TT

MiniEdition TT is a Russian browser extension that was categorized as a potentially unwanted program recently. Currently, the application is still being distributed through the Chrome Web Store page, but given how unreliable it looks like it might be a matter of time when it becomes no longer available on this site. However, Chrome Web Store is not the only distribution channel for this potentially unwanted program as our researchers noticed it being spread with bundled installers of other unreliable software. Unfortunately, this is not the only reason why we believe the add-on is suspicious. If you wish to ...

Decryption Assistant Ransomware

A new HiddenTear-based ransomware infection has been discovered by researchers working in the cyber security department. Decryption Assistant Ransomware is its name. Although it has already been detected by specialists, it seems that its final version has not been developed yet. It is believed that it is still in development because it does not encrypt any files yet, and two buttons users see on a window opened by ransomware do not work either. It does not mean that this infection is harmless and you can do nothing about its presence. Specialists say that it is a must to remove Decryption ...

Jaff Ransomware

Jaff Ransomware is a malicious threat that marks its encrypted files with .jaff extension. Compared to other infections from the same category, the ransomware does not appear to be extremely harmful. It targets only private files while data belonging to the operating system or other software on the computer should remain unaffected. Also, the malware does not lock the screen; making its deletion less complicated. However, erasing Jaff Ransomware manually is still not an easy task as there are quite a few steps you would have to complete. If you think you can handle it, we encourage you to ...
