SO_Booster is suspicious software that might slither onto your computer without your permission. You might not even notice its presence if you do not check Control Panel or detect its folder in %ProgramFiles% directory. Unfortunately, the presence of SO_Booster might mean that some kind of undesirable programs are residing on your system as well because this software is inseparable from other applications. Either way, you should get rid of SO_Booster together with other suspicious applications residing on your computer. If you are not sure how to do that yourself, you should continue reading the article in order to find out how to do that easily and quickly.
The researchers of pcthreat.com have tested SO_Booster and found out that this software might use a variety of names. It might appear on your system as SW.Booster, WS.Booster, EasyUpdate, Sk-Enabler, Upd Inst or just simply use another name. Actually, it does not matter which version infiltrates your system because it is still advisable to delete it entirely. We do not recommend keeping suspicious programs on the system because they might do various undesirable activities behind your back (e.g. connect to the internet without your permission). In order to prevent similar software from entering the system in the future, you should never install applications from doubtful sources. In addition, it is advisable to install programs carefully and always find out whether the program is reliable before the installation.
As SO_Booster is not the most reliable software, it is not surprising that it is associated with various bad installers and downloaders. It is very likely that these installers distribute such applications as Optimizer Pro, websearch family hijackers, and a number of adware programs (e.g. YoutubeAdBlocker). Thus, if you have detected SO_Booster on your system, there is a possibility that different undesirable programs are present as well. Thus, you should hurry to check the condition of your system.
Even though you will be able to remove SO_Booster easily and quickly, other infections will not disappear anywhere from your PC. Unfortunately, it is not an easy task to detect and remove them all, which is why we recommend that you scan your system with an automatic malware remover. Plenty of security tools are published and available on the web; however, we recommend using SpyHunter because it can be trusted 100% and it will protect your PC from various other infections that are just waiting for the opportunity to infiltrate your system.
