Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


Due to questionable traits in their functionality, some programs are identified as potentially unwanted programs, and MediaDownloader is one of them. We recommend that you remove MediaDownloader because, first of all, it will fail to provide you with the promised functions. On the official site, this potentially unwanted program is marketed as a tool which accelerates downloads and converts files to desired media formats; however, the functions it guarantees are not on par with those promised by more reliable counterparts. Bear in mind, however, that it is not the questionable functionality that makes MediaDownloader hard to recommend: This potentially unwanted program is known to download adware.

The official site is not the only source where you might download MediaDownloader. This potentially unwanted program is not trusted because it is also known to be distributed bundled with malicious installers. This is an indication that you should remove MediaDownloader from your machine, as legitimate software usually utilizes legitimate distribution channels to reach its users. These dangerous installers might not only drop MediaDownloader on your machine but also additional malicious programs that you will need to delete if you do not want the security of your computer compromised. Do not forget that MediaDownloader in turn might also download adware, so, if you do not delete this program immediately, you might allow your computer to become infected with various threats.

When MediaDownloader get installed onto your machine, it starts to download adware. These programs are exclusively designed to provide computer users with commercial content; however, there have been a lot of cases in which users clicked on the advertisements and got redirected to sites full of malware (Trojans, worms, ransomware, etc.). Also, you might never know when MediaDownloader or the adware it installs onto your system will start downloading additional malicious content. Therefore, we encourage you to remove MediaDownloader as soon as possible, because these advertisement-supported programs can be exploited to undermine the overall health of your computer.

MediaDownloader is usually installed into a folder named with a random CLSID number; for example, C:\8b0310b9-e12d-42a7-b245-8fb980a2db30. Theoretically, you could manually remove this potentially unwanted program by deleting files in the said folder; however, keep in mind that MediaDownloader might randomize the folder name. Therefore, it is much easier to locate and remove the program from Control Panel. If you do not feel skilled enough a computer user, or just want to save time, equip your machine with antimalware software, which will complete this task automatically. Therefore, you will not need to lose any sleep over the damage the Internet-based infections might cause to your system.
