If you often work with different currencies, you need to have the latest exchange rates on a daily basis. There are many browser extensions and freeware applications that offer to help you with that. Unfortunately, if you encounter Currency Calc, you should not keep this application on your system. It is true that the program promises to provide you with currency exchange rates and a currency conversion service, but from our tests we have found that Currency Calc does not work properly. On top of that, the program may be associated with particular security threats, so you will do yourself a favor if you remove Currency Calc right now.
We believe that users often do not understand what is going on when they install Currency Calc on their computers. That is very likely because the application is distributed with Russian freeware. Thus, it means that users initiate freeware downloads when they access Russian-language websites. If you do not understand this language, you most probably do not realize what buttons you click on, and what sites you get redirected to. Therefore, various unwanted programs like Currency Calc manage to find their way into your system and, as a result, you get exposed to potential computer security threats.
One of the most annoying things about Currency Calc is not the fact that it does not function properly as a currency converter. A far bigger problem is that, upon installation, this application offers you to install Goinf.ru as well. Goinf.ru is a search engine that is known to promote third party websites and unreliable commercial content. It is one of those search engines that can be used as an advertising server by malevolent third parties. Thus, if you have to install Goinf.ru along with Currency Calc, you can be sure that, sooner rather than later, you will need to deal with an entire palette of suspicious applications.
What users often do not understand about potentially unwanted programs is that they are not genuine computer viruses. We have told you already that Currency Calc entered your system just because you initiated the download process, right? Thus, it is also possible to avoid installing this application on your computer IF you steer clear of unfamiliar websites. Whenever you access a page that is full of Flash advertisements and annoying pop-ups, it is a sign that you should get out of there immediately. Such websites are often involved in adware and freeware distribution schemes, which spells nothing but trouble.
Even when you remove Currency Calc from your computer via Control Panel, you should scan the list of installed programs for other unfamiliar apps. After all, it is very likely that this potentially unwanted program came in a software package with at least a few others.
If you are not sure of your software removal skills, you can always invest in a powerful antispyware application. A computer security program of your choice will make sure that you remove all the unwanted apps at once. What’s more, it will also safeguard your PC against similar uninvited guests, informing you about any potential threat that comes your way.
