Extended Update is not an actual program. It is an update task file that belongs to Hoolapp application. What is more, sometimes Extended Update can also be found in a number of potentially unwanted browser extensions, such as FunMoods Toolbar, Movies Toolbar, Delta Toolbar, and the like. Users are strongly recommended to kill Extended Update task in order to avoid installing more unwanted applications. Naturally, to terminate Extended Update, you have to remove Hoolapp or any other application that might be responsible for running this task. To determine which program must be removed, scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner.
The frustrating thing about Extended Update and similar update tasks is that users often download programs that employ these tasks without even realizing. Take Hoolapp, for example. This program can be easily downloaded at hoolapp.com. Its main homepage promotes Hoolapp as a useful application that can help you manage Android app downloads. It says that you can “explorer, discover and install over 50,000 Android apps from your PC to your device with Hoolapp.” As you can see, this application sounds like a useful tool, but it cannot be trusted 100%.
The problem is that like many other potentially unwanted applications, Hoolapp may exhibit some undesirable features. For example, with Extended Update task running, this program can connect to the Internet behind your back and then download more unreliable applications onto your computer. Consequently, it may expose you to potential security threats, and in the long run, you might end up getting infected with malware.
To be honest, there might be quite a few unwanted applications running on your system already. After all, despite the fact that you can download Hoolapp directly at the main homepage, it is far more likely that this application arrives via fake Adobe Flash and Java app updates. There are a lot of adware-related websites that generate annoying pop-ups, offering you to install specific updates. You have to realize that these update notifications are not reliable, and you cannot trust them. If you have recently clicked on pop-up notification that offered you to install some update, chances are that you also installed Hoolapp with it as well.
Neither Extended Update nor Hoolapp is extreme computer security threat, but you should take all the potential risks into account. Terminate Hoolapp right now if you want to delete Extended Update for good. What is more, run a full system scan to make sure that there are no unwanted programs left on your computer. Do not hesitate to invest in a powerful antispyware tool if need be.
