Super Media Converter
If you have Super Media Converter on your computer, we advise you to be careful with this application because it has shown some signs that make it questionable. While the software itself seems all legitimate and it actually does what it claims, i.e., it converts audio files, it might, at the same time, introduce you to potentially harmful third-party content through advertisements. Another thing that makes this app a potentially unwanted program (PUP) on your computer is an unreliable distribution method this PUP applies to spread over the Internet. Considering all our findings, we must tell you that you would be better off removing Super Media Converter.
You can find the official website at supermediaconverter.com, but the question is how many users would actually find it if they do not have the URL. So chances are you have this PUP on your PC but you have never visited or heard of the official website. It is a possible scenario because Super Media Converter may use freeware bundles to travel. However, these bundles might be software packages that include not just legitimate freeware, but alongside it a few malware infections as well. These shady bundles are mainly promoted on questionable shareware websites. Is it possible that you have downloaded some freeware recently? In that case, you have got to be careful and run a full system scan on your computer because it is possible that you have a couple of malware threats lurking on your system. Due to the fact that this PUP uses such a questionable method to get onto users’ computers, we would advise you to delete it.
Super Media Converter, apart from being an audio file converter that recognizes quite a lot of file types, is capable of displaying third-party advertisements on your computer screen. Since this PUP may also be able to collect both non-personal and personally identifiable information about you based on your browsing history or web cookies, it is likely that you will see targeted advertisements as well. Ad-supported free programs mostly use such customized ads to draw your attention to the ad and to make you click on it as the creators get paid per clicks. Unfortunately, third-party ads are not to be trusted. Since these third parties are usually not reviewed or controlled by the software developers, they might as well be cyber criminals. That simply means that whenever you click on an ad, you risk being redirected to malicious websites. If you want to stop these ads to introduce you to such potential, you had better delete Super Media Converter.
If you have managed to make up your mind and you feel that your computer would be more secure without this PUP, let us tell you what you can do to manually remove Super Media Converter. Even if you are not an expert computer user, you can get rid of it within a minute if you follow our instructions below. But keep in mind that it is possible to stop most of the malware infections from entering your computer if you are careful enough. You could, for example, research the software you want to download so that you would know if it is a reliable one at all. You could select the source for your download carefully so that you do not end up on an unfamiliar and suspicious shareware site. These simple things can make a huge difference in your endeavor to make your PC secure.
