CaptureItPlus

You might put yourself at risk by downloading CaptureItPlus. Although this program is not a malicious threat, it was found that it could be used to infiltrate malware. Once installed, this potentially unwanted program can silently download a fake McAfee version and start showing you fake security warnings just to convince you that you need to call a provided number. This number supposedly represents reputable technicians, but we can assure you that it does not. The problem here is that CaptureItPlus is a legitimate program, and its developer is unlikely to be associated with the malicious activity conveyed by it. ...

Lucid Movies

Lucid Movies is a program that should provide you with a huge library of movies, which you should be able to stream online. It goes without saying, that having such application is ideal for most Internet users of today; especially at the time that video streaming has become so popular. Thus, it is not surprising at all that a rather large number of computer users already have this program up and running on their PC. What is unfortunate is the fact that most of the users are not aware of the fact that in reality Lucid Movies is yet another ...

MyFormsFinder Toolbar

MyFormsFinder Toolbar is a browser extension developed by IAC Applications (Formerly known as Mindspark Interactive Network.) It has been configured to hijack your browser’s homepage and other settings, so you might want to remove it, provided that you have it installed. We are aware of the fact that this toolbar has additional functions that some users find useful, but we do not recommend risking your computer’s security for features that can only be described as gimmicks. The fact of the matter is that this application was created for the purpose of generating advertising revenue as its custom search engine ...

You-boost

According to its website, You-boost is supposed to “Enhance your multimedia files download speed by utilizing YouBoost's ad supported media compression engine.” However, we advise that you remove it from your computer since it was classified as a potentially unwanted program. This means that it is not malicious, but it does not offer anything useful either, and after testing it we have found some undesirable activity that is worthy to discuss in greater detail. We have discovered that in addition to not performing its promoted function, this program installs a browser that is set to display commercial advertisements. So it ...

GigaDiet

GigaDiet is an undesirable application that might be responsible for the endless stream of commercial ads you see because it is known to be an ad-supported program (adware). Unfortunately, the majority of users download and install this program themselves because they want to receive information associated with weight loss. At first glance, GigaDiet looks like a really beneficial program. It even claims that you will be able to “take control of your diet from your computer” if you install it. Of course, we cannot say that it does not do anything at all; however, it is definitely not as ...

Snjsearch.com

Browser hijackers are becoming more and more prevalent since their releases have skyrocketed in the past year.

Browser hijackers are fast becoming a profitable advertising platform that attracts the worst kind of advertisers who do not shy away from promoting malicious content.

Moreover, this hijacker is set to gather certain information ...

DealSquib

DealSquib is an unreliable application that is supposed to share best deals and coupons with you while you are shopping online, as you may assume from its name. Unfortunately, you cannot really trust anything shown by this browser application because it may simply start showing you potentially unsafe third-party advertisements through coupons, best offers, and pop-up ads. Therefore, we have labeled it as an adware application. This is a free extension that is only compatible with Google Chrome. We have found that its main goal is most probably not saving you money on your shoppings, but, instead, exposing you to ...

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 ...

In a nutshell, it modifies your browser’s settings, so you have to remove it if you want to rollback the changes it has made. The problem is, however, that this browser hijacker prevents you from getting rid of it by modifying the browser’s Target line settings. Unfortunately, the purpose of doing so is to force you to use this search engine so that its developers could make easy money. So if your ...
