SW-Sustainer 1.80 is not an infection; however, you may want to delete it from your operating system. The application may be published by different parties, including Certified Toolbar and Genuine P Software, because it may be employed to assist different programs. According to our expert malware analysts, the suspicious program is always installed silently as an integral part of other software that is being installed. This is why many computer users are surprised when they are told they may have to remove SW-Sustainer 1.80 from their PCs as well.
Do you know what a PUP is? This abbreviation is used when discussing "potentially unwanted programs," and you can classify SW-Sustainer 1.80 as unwanted as well. Our malware researchers also classify this PUP as an adware helper. An adware helper is designed to aid an advertisement-supported program. As you may know already, most ad-supported programs must be deleted from operating systems for security reasons, and this means that you may have to delete SW-Sustainer 1.80 for security reasons as well.
As an adware helper, SW-Sustainer 1.80 could be used to download updates, receive commands, and transfer data. This activity could be dangerous if the software were to be employed by unreliable parties. Together with SW-Booster, SW-Sustainer 1.80 could be used to download malware, which could create various security issues. Needless to say, in this case it is necessary to delete SW-Sustainer 1.80 as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the PUP is nearly invisible, and computer users learn about its activity only if they detect the running process SW-Booster.exe. You should terminate the process and remove the file.
SW-Sustainer 1.80 usually enters the targeted operating systems via pay-per-install bundles. In most cases, the PUP will appear after executing InstalleRex-WebPick installers. Of course, SW-Sustainer 1.80 is not the only unwanted program these installers will push. We do not recommend trusting unreliable software distributors, because they can introduce you to programs that you will eventually need to delete from the operating system. Of course, if you are researching SW-Sustainer 1.80 removal, it is most likely that you already need to delete other unreliable software, such as Websearch hijackers or Youtubeadblocker.
Have you uninstalled SW-Sustainer 1.80 from the operating system (see instructions below)? Unfortunately, the manual removal is not always effective when it comes to potentially unwanted programs and adware helpers. It is likely that some components of the PUP will remain active, and that you will need to delete all of the files to terminate the activity of the PUP. Due to this, we strongly recommend using automatic malware removal software to delete SW-Sustainer 1.80 and other active threats.
