Ghostify is a potentially unwanted program that is officially promoted at gostify.com. Of course, it is not likely that many users will find this PUP on their own. It is more likely that they will be pointed to it using promotional techniques (e.g., via pop-up ads), or it will be bundled with other programs. As you might realize already, malware could be bundled along with this potentially unwanted program, which is why you have to be exceptionally careful whenever you install unfamiliar software. If you already suspect that malicious threats might have invaded your operating system, we advise installing a malware scanner. A reliable, up-to-date, and free malware scanner is available via the download link below. Install it and perform a full system scan to check if there are other infections that, possibly, must be deleted from your computer. If not, focus on the removal of Ghostify.
According to the official information, Ghostify is meant to disable geographical restrictions when streaming video on Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, and Pandora. Our researchers warn that this PUP functions in a similar manner as DNS.Unlocker, which is a known infection whose removal is discussed in a different report. Even though the program works, it is extremely suspicious and strange. For one, the official installer works in a strange way, as you are not permitted to choose specific components. Also, the names of files representing the PUP are random, and this might prevent you from identifying and deleting the app successfully. In our case, these files were stored in folders named “GTFPOQUOTT” and “GTFPOQUOTT Updater.” If that was not enough, the suspicious program is also capable of silently adding a Chrome extension. Needless to say, illegal activity is never a good sign, and this might be a good reason to delete Ghostify.
One of the main reasons why Ghostify is classified as a potentially unwanted program is that its removal is quite complex. Although it is not difficult, a lot of users can be tricked into thinking that the PUP is gone when, in reality, it is not. First and foremost, you cannot uninstall this program because certain elements are left behind. If you want to delete Ghostify manually, follow the instructions below. If you do not think you can get rid of this program on your own, you can always install an anti-malware tool. Make sure you install a tool that will recognize this program as a potential threat.
