There are many freeware programs out there that can help you with file zipping. ZiperFly is one of them, and it looks like your average application that performs its functions quite well. However, our security specialists say that ZiperFly is a potentially unwanted program. There are some features of the application that should not be taken lightly. On top of that, you might not even know how this application arrived at your computer, and if that is the case, then you definitely should not wait any longer. Who would want to keep a program she did not plan on installing?
If you were to access the official website for the application at ziperfly.com, you would see that the download button there works just fine. You can install the program individually, and ZiperFly does not really try to trick you into installing this application. The information provided on the official homepage says the following:
Zip and unzip your files instantly with Ziperfly , This all in one zip software lets you compress and unzip a number of key file formats. Worried about your privacy? Why not protect your files with passwords and compile your files to a number of secure locations.
The main promotional lines are a little bit sloppy, but the website itself looks user-friendly. So if you open the website accidentally, and you are looking for file compression software, perhaps you might want to give ZiperFly a try.
It would be a completely different story if the program came bundled with freeware. Perhaps you have downloaded some application from a files-sharing website and installed it without reading all the installation steps carefully. Consequently, you must have allowed a number of potentially unwanted freeware applications to enter your system along with the program you wanted to have. ZiperFly might as well be one of them.
Disregarding the method of distribution, we believe that you should think twice before keeping ZiperFly on your system. This application does not add any extensions to your browser or anything like that. It functions through system processes, both of which can be seen via Windows Task Manager. Namely, that would be ZiperflyWindowsContex.exe and ZiperFly.exe. Although these processes help ZiperFly perform its functions properly, they may also be employed to display commercial advertisements.
It would not be surprising if ZiperFly did that because the application needs to generate profit for its creators somehow. The problem is that most of the ads promote outgoing links to third-party websites that are not always safe. Obviously, you can avoid potential threats by closing the ads and simply ignoring them, but how long can it last?
One day you might end up clicking one of the ads accidentally, and then you can only guess what could happen to your system. Therefore, you should not take your chances. It is for the best to remove ZiperFly from your computer right now, than mop the mess later.
The manual removal instructions are provided below. Should you need any further assistance with ensuring your system’s stability, please do not hesitate to leave us a comment.
