WinExpand is known to be an advertising-supported application. It means that WinExpand only shows various commercial advertisements on your screen and does not do anything really beneficial even though the information on its official website informs users that WinExpand will act beneficially and will even help to save some money. Research carried out by the specialists working at has shown that WinExpand usually appears on computers of those users who live in Korea. Therefore, we believe that WinExpand is a Korean adware. Of course, we cannot guarantee that it will not enter your PC if your place of residence is different. Has this already happened? If so, you should delete WinExpand as soon as possible even if it looks like a harmless application at first sight. Specialists say that you should not keep adware on board because these programs might simply redirect to unreliable web pages and thus might cause harm to your system.

It is very likely that you will not be able to use your PC freely if you keep this adware installed on the system because it will constantly bombard you with advertisements. It has been noticed that these ads are very prevalent on online shopping websites – they might be related with the product user is watching. Even though ads generated by WinExpand usually advertise different products and services, we do not recommend clicking on any of them because you might be redirected to unreliable web pages. Actually, the presence of ads is not the only reason why you should get rid of adware. Specialists say that it would be best to remove WinExpand from the system also because this program might collect information about your Internet browsing habits.
