SpeedyMediaConverter is a potentially unwanted program you probably installed on your computer unawares. This application often comes in software packages, so you were probably too immersed in something else to notice that SpeedyMediaConverter slithered into your system. Luckily, there is nothing too malicious about this application, and you remove it without any further ado. Simply make use of the removal guide we have provided below this description and everything should go back to normal. However, if you think that there might be more unfamiliar and potentially harmful applications on your PC, you should seriously consider scanning it with the SpyHunter free scanner.
Another reason we cannot really say that SpeedyMediaConverter is a malicious infection is because the program comes with an original homepage. The homepage is located at speedymediaconverter.com, and you can actually download the program from the site. Nevertheless, the program itself and the site look identical to those of ExpressMediaConverter, Super Media Converter, and the like. This means that the people behind these applications develop and release them like straight from the conveyor belt. They are far more interested in quantity, rather than quality. Not to mention that there are particular features of the program that should raise a few brows, especially when your computer security is your utmost priority.
The official website says that with SpeedyMediaConverter you can “convert all files types in one click.” Technically, the application should encode “HD video (inc. .avchd, .ts, .tod, .avi hd, .m2ts, etc.), .avi, .mp4, .wmv, .blu-ray, .3gp, and so on. You can choose between a free ad-supported and a free version. The promotional text at the site also says that this program is a “professional audio file converter for Windows that makes converting files fun, fast and easy.” Now that would be nice, but our research suggests that, most of the time, SpeedyMediaConverter does not even work properly.
On top of that, you get the third-party ads that may redirect you to unfamiliar web pages. Why does the free SpeedyMediaConverter version display commercial ads? Simple, the people behind the application get money for lending the program’s space for advertising. After all, it needs to cover all the development costs, and if you people are not too eager to pay for the full version of the application (and usually they are not), they need to make profit somehow. Endorsing third-party advertisements just happens to be one of the ways.
Technically, third-party ads are seldom malicious. They are simply annoying because they can slow down your browser and take up your system’s resources. However, since SpeedyMediaConverter does not review the ad content, even cyber criminals could make use of the application to promote their content. If that happens, you can surely get infected with malware, or get your information leaked for illegal financial operations.
This is something any computer user would want to avoid, so if you have programs like SpeedyMediaConverter installed on your PC, and you have no idea how they entered your system, it is about time to remove them all. Open your Control Panel and uninstall the unnecessary applications that could eventually lead to severe computer security issues. If some programs cannot be deleted manually, do not hesitate to make use of a reliable antispyware tool.
