- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Istreamer is purely an advertising-supported application because it slithers onto computers in order only to show commercial advertisements, and it does not even try to convince computer users that it is going to act in a beneficial way. Many users do not even know that they have this undesirable program installed until it starts showing commercial advertisements, because it does not have a graphic interface. If you have already noticed the presence of this program or started seeing its ads on your screen, you should eliminate it as soon as possible. We do not recommend keeping this software installed because it might cause harm to your system one day. Even though the program itself is not harmful, it generates and displays untrustworthy ads on a user’s screen. You can get rid of them by deleting Istreamer.
In order to find out whether this program is really responsible for all those ads, you should check the %ALLUSERSPROFILE% directory because Istreamer is always installed there. In addition, it is worth checking the Task Manager because it adds a process istreamer.exe to the list of processes. If you are sure that Istreamer is responsible for all those advertisements, you should remove it as soon as possible. In the meantime, ignore all those advertisements because you might end up on a corrupted website and even download malicious applications. Our specialists say that this program might perform other activities, too; e.g., it will connect to the Internet without permission and it will track your online activities. As can be seen, it is definitely not a program which you should keep installed on your system.
