Although our security experts say that ExpressMediaConverter is an adware application, we could also categorize it as a potentially unwanted program. This would suggest that the application enters your system accidentally and, most of the time, users are not aware that they are installing it. Of course, you may also download the program from its official website, but it is far more likely that it arrived at your system in a software package. If you did not want to have this program on your computer, you need to remove ExpressMediaConverter right now, ensuring that your PC is protected against similar uninvited guests in the future.
The reason we cannot say this program is malicious is that ExpressMediaConverter has its own official homepage. We can access it easily via expressmediaconverter.com. There you will see generic information on the product, which says that with this program you can convert and encode different types of videos. Supposedly, ExpressMediaConverter supports .avi, .mp4, .3gp, .mpeg, .flv, .mkv, and many other formats. The website also offers the ad-free version, but if you choose to have that, you will have to spend your money on it because it does not come for free. Considering this program really does what it says it can do, perhaps there are users who end up buying the full version of this application.
Nevertheless, we usually have to deal with complaints from the users who ended up having ExpressMediaConverter on their systems accidentally. This happens quite often because such applications are often included in software packages that are available for download at third-party websites. There are multiple web domains out there that distribute freeware, bundling several programs together in one third-party installer. For instance, you might have been looking for a completely different application, but you were not aware that the installer brought several other programs as well.
As you can see, we are not too worried about ExpressMediaConverter because this application does not expose you to severe security threats directly. However, there are still specific safety issues associated with the tool, and you should not overlook them. Perhaps it would be enough to mention that ExpressMediaConverter was created by the same developers as Ad Blockerr (via adblockerr.com), which is thought to be an annoying adware application. Albeit these programs can provide you with the actual advertised service, they also focus a lot on the third-party advertising. This creates possibilities for malicious exploitation, especially if you click any of the commercial ads shown by ExpressMediaConverter and other similar programs.
If there is at least the tiniest possibility that you could face malicious infection because of the third-party ads, you obviously need to get rid of the programs that could lead to these computer security programs. On top of that, there is no need to keep the applications that entered your PC when you did not need that. Thus, open your Control Panel and uninstall ExpressMediaConverter manually.
Some program files may remain on your system because manual removal is not always enough to terminate all the files and registry entries. Not to mention that you obviously have more unwanted programs to take care of. That can be done swiftly and efficiently with a licensed antispyware tool. Do not hesitate to invest in one.
