Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application

SW Booster

SW Booster is categorized as a potentially undesirable program because it assists the infiltration of bundled applications. Also known as shareware, this computer application has been developed by PremiumSoft and can be installed onto the computer without any of your notice. Even though the program itself is not considered to be malicious, the applications it travels bundled with are almost exclusively dangerous and intrusive. Do you know how to identify malicious infections and then delete them? Do you know what risks are related to the illegally running software? Most importantly, do you know how to remove SW Booster? Then continue reading the report.

ItsMyApp, Optimizer Pro, EZDownloader, SaveOn and Youtubeadblocker are just a few applications which SW Booster travels bundled with. It has been revealed that browser hijackers from the Websearch family can come bundled with the potentially undesirable program as well. Unfortunately, some of these applications are clandestine and extremely difficult to remove from the operating system. You need to be most cautious about the SaveOn and Youtubeadblocker browser extensions because they can modify their own names and evade regular manual removal processes. In fact, even certain automatic malware removal applications struggle with the elimination of these threats.

Malware researchers identify certain SW Booster components as Adware Helpers meaning that the program may have the ability to spy on your virtual activity and collect information about you. Needless to say, you need to be most cautious about applications which can collect private information because you do not want your home address, full name, phone number and other sensitive information leaked to unfamiliar third parties. It is likely that the information collected by SW Booster will be accessible to the developers of the software that the program travels bundled with. Do you want cyber criminals related to adware and browser hijackers to learn what sites you browse? This information could be used against you.

SW Booster removal includes the removal of other undesirable software as well, including the SW-Sustainer. Even though you may delete the program from %ProgramFiles%\SW-Booster and the computer (see guides below), we recommend using automatic malware detection and removal software instead. As mentioned before, applications related to the program may be impossible to delete on your own, and some of them could be hidden altogether. We advise installing the authentic Windows security tool SpyHunter because it is up-to-date and can delete existing computer threats without wasting your time.
