ConverterPro is a program that converts media files, and you will even be able to convert the YouTube videos you like to the wanted format. Many people may find this useful and keep this tool on their systems. We would not question the functionality of this program, as it seems really working in a way it promises. But we have found that ConverterPro is a potentially unwanted application as it often hides its entry. Besides, the program comes with a browser hijacker that changes your default homepage and search engine. In addition, this converter could install malicious programs on your system. Therefore, you should remove the unreliable application on the spot.
ConverterPro is developed by Goobzo Ltd. The latter company is known for a number of suspicious applications. For example, the potentially unwanted program YouTube Accelerator is also created by the same company. Its products are not coming alone, and you will soon notice something unusual about your system if you install ConverterPro. You will find your homepage changed to www-search.net. You can find how to eliminate the latter program on our page. Coming back to the converter, we should warn that it launches a process named “updater.exe” on your system and is capable of downloading malicious applications through this process.
We have already mentioned that this media file converter usually comes unnoticed. People receive it in bundles with programs they install from freeware download websites. What’s worse, this application is also distributed by malicious software installers. You should be very cautious while visiting p2p, Torrent, or other file sharing webpages. Users often launch bad installers when they click on the bogus download buttons they find on those pages. So, if you do not remember downloading ConverterPro from any official source, you should worry about the safety of your device.
Luckily, the possibly unwanted application could be removed from your device quite quickly. You can do it in a few simple steps by locating the ConverterPro on your programs list and then eliminating it. But please have in mind that some other and much more dangerous threats can already be causing damage to your PC. Your utmost priority should be scanning your system for their presence.
