WebHancer becomes a dubious application when its presence and installation is not known by the computer user - in other words - when WebHancer is installed and infiltrates a computer system without the user\'s knowledge or consent - then WebHancer becomes an unwanted applicatioon, and should be removed ASAP!
PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) are applications that a security, or privacy-minded computer user may want to be informed of and, in most instances, may feel the need to remove.
PUPs are often made by a legitimate corporate entity for some beneficial purpose, but they alter the security state of the computer on which they are installed, and may even compromise the privacy of the infected system.
WebHancer may monopolize the computer system’s resources and is largely responsible for the countless pop-up advertisements the user will be bombarded with.
WebHancer is often bundled with or embedded within freeware programs like such as clocks, messengers, alerts, weather, and so on.
To avoid any unneeded risks of damage to your computer system, it is highly recommended to make use of a reliable and legitimate anti-spyware application, to remove WebHancer and all its components from the infected computer system.
