- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Users often think that constant pop-ups on their browser’s window are a normal phenomenon. Well, if those pop-ups are generated by ConvertApps, then the entire thing is not as normal as you might think. ConvertApps is an adware application, which means that it has been created to make money by promoting third-party content. Such a business plan can be quite successful, but you should stay out of it and remove ConvertApps immediately. This adware program cannot provide you with anything useful, and in the worst-case scenario, it could be exploited by cyber criminals to infect you with malware. Thus, it is only obvious that you should not allow it to remain on your computer.
We have seen similar applications many times before. ConvertApps is based on the JustPlugIt engine, and it belongs to the Multiplug family. If you search the main keywords related to this application (like JustPlugit or Multiplug), you will find a lot of other adware applications from the same group. Our security researchers do not even need an in depth study anymore to tell that ConvertApps is no different from AllDayPrice, GetIt4Cheaper, CompareItApplic, and so on. All these adware applications are sometimes called the semi-random name adware. The name stems from the fact that ConvertApps and other related applications may randomly capitalized their names upon the installation. Nevertheless, unlike genuine computer infections, they do not try to hide their presence.
You will notice that ConvertApps has been installed on your computer in no time. This adware application adds an extension to your default browser to collect information on your web browsing history. Computer security experts note that the newest versions of Google Chrome may block the ConvertApps add-on. This fact should be enough to convince you that you must delete ConvertApps from your computer, because would a popular web browser block a program if it were absolutely safe? Most probably not.
On top of that, ConvertApps might have been installed with a list of adware applications that may cause even more problems than ConvertApps itself. After all, this application is distributed through such third-party installers as Vittalia, Amonetize, and InstallRex. Consequently, you most probably need to remove an entire bunch of potentially malicious applications that have recently entered your system.
The problem is that users install ConvertApps and similar adware apps accidentally because they do not realize the danger behind download freeware from file-sharing websites. Please install software that you download from the official vendor’s websites only, and do read all the installation wizards steps carefully. You might have had an opportunity to avoid installing ConvertApps, but you have simply missed. And now you have to delete this program and protect your PC from harm.
Do not think that the problem will go away if you simply ignore it. If you do not remove ConvertApps from your computer, sooner rather than later cyber criminals will find a way to exploit it, and you will end up getting infected with malware. Or worse: you could also experience a financial cyber theft. Therefore, follow the instructions below to delete ConvertApps for good, and then scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner. Do not forget that you most probably have multiple unwanted applications on-board, so you need to take care of them as well.
