- Annoying Pop-up's
- Installs itself without permissions
Each time you download freeware from third-party websites, you have to make sure you avoid the likes of Windowunitpop. It is an adware helper program that exposes your computer to potentially corrupted content. It might be hard to pinpoint the exact program that bundles Windowunitpop into its setup file, but the bottom line is that you should never install applications you have downloaded from unfamiliar websites. If you happen to have this adware helper on your computer, it goes without saying that you must remove Windowunitpop and the program it “helps” immediately. You can never know when cyber criminals could make use of this application.
Based on its digital signature, we can see that the name of Windowunitpop’s publisher is OPN.co., ltd. This company is a software developer based in Gangnam, Seoul, South Korea. This publisher has an additional code signing certificate, and it would seem that there is nothing suspicious about it, but we cannot put our guard down. The problem is that Windowunitpop is said to be coming from winaddress.kr, but this website is not working at the time of writing. Hence, it is logical to raise a question as to where this application is coming from exactly.
Since Windowunitpop is an adware helper, it “helps” adware and freeware applications to function properly. In other words, with this adware helper on your system, you can expect to see a lot of commercial advertisements and various other pop-ups whenever you access the Internet. Windowunitpop adds an extension on Internet Explorer. As one would expect from a Korean browser extension, Windowunitpop works only on Internet Explorer. However, that does not mean that you should heave a sigh of relief. Having an adware application on your computer is never a good sign, so you should be concerned about your system’s security.
Luckily, it is not hard to remove Windowunitpop manually. Access Control Panel and uninstall the application from the list of installed programs. Afterwards, the extension on your browser should disappear automatically. However, it does not mean that your job is done here. Since Windowunitpop cannot function properly on its own, it means that there are bound to be other potentially unwanted and perhaps even dangerous programs installed on your PC.
To determine what other programs must be removed from your system, scan it with SpyHunter free scanner. After a full system scan, remove the programs via Control panel. If some of the programs cannot be terminated via Control Panel, you should acquire a powerful computer security application that will delete all the unnecessary programs and remaining files automatically, at the same time protecting your system against similar threats in the future. Do what is best for you and your computer.
