When we have to deal with potentially unwanted programs, it is important to note that these applications are far from genuine malware infections. However, MyMemory and other similar programs could be easily exploited by malevolent third parties, and so they should not be allowed to remain on your computer; especially, if you did not intend to have them installed in the first place. So, in this description, we will try to explain you more about this application and why it would be disadvantageous to utilize it. Naturally, if you wish to remove MyMemory, you can simply scroll down to the bottom of this article for the manual removal instructions.
Checking our research database, we can see that this application is similar to Note-Up program that was also classified as a potentially unwanted program. Both applications are event planner and reminders. It means that they modify your system settings so that they could display various notifications and pop-ups, depending on what set these apps to do. However, even if you did not intend to use MyMemory, we cannot rule out the possible that the application might pop up into your screen anyway. The problem is that the notifications delivered by this app may remind of you system notifications, and you could overlook them accidentally.
Here some users may argue that if a program enters their system behind their back, it can automatically be labeled as malware. But we would not be so fast to judge when it comes to MyMemory. It is true that users who complain about this app did not plan to install it, but they DID initiate the installation process anyway. How did it happen? Probably by downloading software from unfamiliar sources.
We would like to point out that MyMemory does not have an official homepage. Note-Up did have one, but this program does not have it. Therefore, you cannot download it directly. In other words, most of the time this application enter target systems, users are unaware of that. Nevertheless, the program cannot be installed on your PC without your consent, and you actually give that consent when you go through the third-party installation wizard. Think about it: have you recently downloaded any application from a third-party file-sharing site? Did you go through a setup? Did you read all the steps carefully? Perhaps you skipped a few? The point is that a third-party installation wizard might have informed you about MyMemory and the oncoming installation, but you must have ignored several setup steps to get to the finish faster.
As a result, now you have MyMemory on-board. Aside for leaving an entry in Control Panel, the program will also create a shortcut by adding the “-pub=MMAMj2n2 /key=7123” line to the target line. The shortcut can be easily modified manually, although the changes should disappear automatically once you delete the application.
Aside from the possibility that you may not need this program, why should you remove it? Well, if it really came bundled with freeware, it could also be susceptible to third-party exploitation. The longer it stays on your computer, the more issues it may cause. It will not be on purpose, but such applications are too vulnerable to malicious exploitations.
What’s more, you could have many other unfamiliar programs installed on your PC. If we are talking about a bundled download here, it means that you should run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner right now. You need to locate all the potentially unwanted apps and remove them immediately. For the most part, it should be possible to apply the manual removal, but if you do not want to take any chances, you can delete these apps automatically, too.
Once again, we would like to emphasize that MyMemory is not a malicious infection, but there is no need to keep a program if it entered your PC unexpectedly. After software removal, be sure to safeguard your system against potential threats by investing in a licensed antispyware tool. Protecting your PC from harm equals protecting your personal data from malicious exploitation.
