Poposhidu

Poposhidu is a useless application that may have been annoying you with third-party advertising while you are browsing the web. As a matter of fact, this program has only one function and that is to display third-party ads that may well be potentially harmful, too. You may think that these ads are simply disrupting and thus may ruin your browsing experience. But we are here to tell you that these banner and pop-up commercial advertisements may also expose you to unsafe third-party web content. What’s more, it is quite likely that this ad-supported program has entered your computer in a ...

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. Therefore, not only are these ads very annoying and disruptive, but they may also put your virtual security at risk. ...

BeautyMost

BeautyMost is a rather questionable program that offers nothing of value to the end-user. It is also an annoying program that when run will redirect to various promoted websites. So, you might want to remove it, especially if you are not interested in its advertised products and services. However, from the very outset, we wish to clarify that the promoted websites are legitimate, for now at least. Most of its promotions are related to beauty and health which is all well and good. However, the advertisements are intrusive which makes this program highly undesirable. But, we are going to ...

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 ...

WeatherWizard

WeatherWizard is not as useful as it might seem at first sight. Even though it will really provide you with the information about the weather (e.g. humidity, wind, Feels Like, Wind Direction, Visibility, and Precipitation) in your area after you enter a ZIP code, you should know that it is still classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Therefore, it would be best that you find another tool for checking the weather forecast. WeatherWizard is put into this category not without a reason. It has been observed that it might really perform undesirable activities. We are sure that you ...

Simple New Tab

We deal with potentially unwanted programs (PUP) far more often than one might think. Simple New Tab is a potentially unwanted application, too. The PUP category is a particular gray zone because it is sometimes unclear what can be considered a potentially unwanted program. To be honest, such applications like Simple New Tab are not malicious, but they often indulge in advertising and unwanted behavior that should not be tolerated. Users have to consider their computer and private information security, and if it is possible to ensure by removing a few unwanted applications, then it is definitely something you should ...

Customer Promos

Customer Promos is an application that should not be kept installed on the system because it shows commercial advertisements only and does not do anything else. It has been observed that this program works on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, which means that users of these browsers will not be able to hide from ads. It is not surprising at all that Customer Promos displays commercials because it is a typical ad-supported application (adware). It is known that it has replaced such programs as Blazer Deals, Gravity Space, Glass Bottle, Roaming Rate, Dragon Branch, and Strong Signal, so ...

BeautyBrilliant

BeautyBrilliant is identical to MusicMain, and both of these programs are classified as adware. This strange ad-supported program creates a shortcut and adds it to the Desktop. As you click this shortcut, you will open a window representing the stories of seventeen.com/beauty/. According to our research, the suspicious program loads www.beautybrilliant.com/redir.php to redirect users to this page. Considering that seventeen.com represents one of the most popular magazines in the US targeted at teenagers, it is not surprising that the creators of this adware have chosen to use it. In reality, this popular page is used only to distract you ...
