Wincheck

Wincheck is an adware helper that is installed alongside unreliable advertisement-supported programs. Needless to say, we strongly recommend removing this software from your personal computer, because it could open up security backdoors and jeopardize your own virtual security. In most cases, adware helpers are deleted together with adware, but it is possible that you will have to remove Wincheck from your operating system manually. This report was created to help you bypass all removal obstacles.

According to our malware researchers, it is important to remove Wincheck and the related adware, because it could unleash truly misleading and unreliable advertisements. For example, you could encounter the Media-fire.org Pop-up and Flash Player is needed pop-up. Wincheck-related adware usually contacts such unreliable adware servers as Samplesmother.biz, Fingerbedroom.xyz, and Ndo.coreopti.net. If you face pop-up ads served by these servers, you need to scan your PC to find out if you need to delete Wincheck.

Adware helpers, such as Wincheck, are mainly used to collect user information and download adware updates. Needless to say, if you do not remove Wincheck, this adware helper could disclose your personal information, and this is a great security risk. You must beware of the updates as well, because malicious files could be dropped on your PC to perform malicious activity. Keep in mind that other adware helpers could have been installed as well, and it is just as important to delete them as it is to delete Wincheck. You can detect these threats – if they exist – using an automatic malware scanner.

The adware helper that you need to delete from your operating system is usually located in the Wincheck folder found under %LOCALAPPDATA%. However, it is possible that computer users will find Wincheck in a different location and acting in a different manner. According to our malware researchers, an old Trojan infection has the same name as the adware helper, and it is usually detected as Trj/W32.WinCheck. Of course, it is unlikely that you will find the Trojan on your PC, unless you have not secured it, and it has been running security software-free for years.

Whether you are dealing with a malicious Trojan or an irritating advertisement-supported program flooding your browsers with random ads, we recommend installing an automatic malware removal tool. This tool will delete Wincheck and all other computer infections for you. If you are capable of removing malware from your PC yourself, we suggest removing Wincheck using the guide below.
