DownloadCrowd.com

DownloadCrowd.com is a website to which you can be taken by pop-up advertisements displayed by adware programs. The website DownloadCrowd.com cannot be accessed as a regular website, which implies that it cannot be fully trusted. DownloadCrowd.com is aimed at making you install different applications, including adware and trial versions of system optimization tools. It has been found that the content of the website differs. One day you may be invited to install Web Internet Security, which is presented as a program that works with your anti-virus program in order to strengthen security against malware and spyware. Another program that can be promoted at DownloadCrowd.com is Free Download Manager. According to the description at DownloadCrowd.com, FDM enables computer users to get acquainted with the reviews of various files and leave their own opinion. The application is said to be capable of splitting files into sections, which increases the download speed.

We recommend that you leave DownloadCrowd.com once you are taken to it because it is one of the ways to make you install many other unnecessary programs. When you click the Start Download button, the Fusion installer is launched and you are asked to install several additional programs. You may be asked to install Search Protect, OptimizerPro, Highlightly, BrowserSafeguard, RocketTab, and some other programs. Some of the programs distributed by the Fusion installer are categorized as adware because they monitor users’ online activities and display search-related advertisements. In addition to adware programs, you are asked to install system optimization tools, which consume the resources of the PC and encourage you to activate them in order to have registry errors fixed. We recommend that you disregard DownloadCrowd.com and avoid installing programs provided by unknown software distributors.

DownloadCrowd.com is not the only website that is promoted in this way. There are captdownload.com/, softarmory.com/, beginfreedownload.com/ and some other websites whose only goal is to make you install as many computer applications as possible.

In order to prevent redirection to DownloadCrowd.com, you should remove the adware program. DownloadCrowd.com can be promoted by any application displaying advertisements, including Media Viewer, HQ-Video, and Baseflash. Hence, we recommend that you use a spyware removal. Implement SpyHunter if you want to get rid of the unwanted application and safely browse the Internet. The recommended anti-spyware tool can protect you against numerous computer threats, so, if you want to stop unwanted ads and be secure when browsing the Internet, take action right now.
