WinClock was created by Howard Software Ltd., and it is supposed to help you customize your desktop clock. This application costs 5.99$ if you want to enjoy its services ad-free, or you can install it free of charge and get bombarded with all kinds of online advertisements. It is surprising that computer users spend money on programs like this one, but do not invest in reliable security software that could protect them from malicious and unreliable programs. Of course, even though we show how to remove WinClock, we do not identify this program as extremely malicious. Nonetheless, we understand if you want to delete it.
Have you downloaded WinClock from its official page, winclock.net? If this is the first time you hear about this website, you must have downloaded the suspicious, potentially unwanted program (PUP) using a third-party installer. Even though there are plenty of reliable installers that you can trust, it is much more likely that you will acquire packaged WinClock with malware that deserves removal. According to our researchers, malicious software installers might attach this PUP along with adware, hijackers, and malware that will require immediate removal. Hopefully, this is not the case, and you do not need to delete third-party threats.
The commercial advertisement and pop-ups injected by WinClock are very unpredictable, which is one of the reasons to delete this PUP. We cannot claim that all ads will be malicious or reliable, which is why it is wise to stay away from all of them. Needless to say, it might be difficult to ignore the ads and offers promoting truly attractive deals. WinClock can use tracking cookies to collect information about your virtual activity to help third-party advertisers select the ads you might be more interested in. This could be used to your disadvantage, in case mischievous parties got involved. Unfortunately, this is another thing that we cannot predict. In fact, even the developers of WinClock might not know all of the intentions of the parties working with them.
If you have installed the free version of WinClock, you must have encountered a ton of ads already. As you now know, clicking on these ads can be dangerous, which is why we recommend against it. If you have decided that you do not like the paid version either, you might want to ask for a refund. We cannot guarantee that you will get this refund, but you can at least ask. When it comes to the removal of WinClock, we have good news: It is easy to delete this potentially unwanted program. The guide below shows how to get rid of this PUP, but it is possible that these instructions will not work for other threats. We recommend using SpyHunter to have all other potential threats deleted.
