ZipperFile, as you would guess from its name, is a file compressor and decompressor application, one that may put your virtual security at risk. Since the application itself is not a dangerous infection, we have categorized it as a PUP, a potentially unwanted program. If you need to compress files, we definitely advise you to look for a more reliable application that cannot harm your operating system. In case you want to protect your computer, it is necessary to be aware of the potential threats this PUP and its questionable functions might cause. How would you fight an unknown enemy, right? Our goal here is to inform you about the shadowy side of this PUP so that you can make the right decision. If you ask us, though, we would say that you should remove ZipperFile. Let us tell you the reasons behind our opinion.
The first suspicious thing with regard to ZipperFile is when you try to download this application from its official website, zipperfile.com. If you have an active security tool installed, you may be alerted that you are about to download a potential threat, i.e., a potentially unwanted program. There has to be a good reason for this warning, and we have managed to discover it. As a matter of fact, the installer seems to contain bad toolbars and adware applications as well. Now, that is really bad news and does not convince us that this is a reliable program; on the contrary, you should not keep any application on-board that behaves like this. But, if you have already installed it, you cannot neglect these infections. After deleting ZipperFile, you need to take care of all the potential malware infections that may be on your computer.
However, it is also likely that this PUP did not come on-board from an official source. That means that it may have come in a freeware bundle along with malware infections. Nowadays you cannot even trust software packages because cyber criminals frequently use them to spread useless third-party applications and, of course, malware programs. Most commonly you can find adware programs, browser hijackers, and PUPs in such infected bundles. Most of the time users do not even realize that they download one because these bundles are available on shady freeware and torrent sites through suspicious third-party ads and pop-ups. One wrong click can easily result in a couple of malware threats on your computer. Therefore, we advise you to stay away from unreliable websites. Since this distribution method is rather questionable and makes the intentions of this PUP suspicious, we suggest that you remove ZipperFile as soon as possible.
If you want to help your computer to be secure, you should not hesitate about the fate of ZipperFile. The good news is that it is not difficult to tackle this infection; you can simply uninstall it through Control Panel. If that is not a familiar task for you, you can use our instructions below to assist you through the necessary steps. However, do not forget that removing ZipperFile may not totally secure your computer. You need to figure out if there are other threats still hiding on-board. We suggest that you download and install a trustworthy antimalware application. Your PC’s full protection can be a single click away.
