VOPackage is a program that has adware qualities, and it should not be allowed to stay on your computer. Its behavior may depend on other additional programs it comes bundled with. It is very unlikely that you will download this program directly, because our security research team has not come across any official homepage for VOPackage. Although it is not a direct computer security threat, adware programs might be exploited by cybercriminals, so the best way to deal with this situation is to remove VOPackage from your computer immediately. Do not forget that you might need to delete other related programs as well.
We are mentioning related programs here because VOPackage travels via third party download manager and it usually gets installed on the target computer together with VuuPC. You are not informed about VOPackage installation because it comes as a package with the aforementioned program. What is more, once the installation is complete, VOPackage can connect to the internet behind your back to send and receive data. It is possible that when this program connects to the internet it will download more adware onto your computer. Our research team says that for the most part VOPackage does act like an adware downloader.
VOPackage comes with VuuPC because they are both created by the same publisher. VuuPC is a remote desktop access program that allows users to access home or office computers remotely. It works on any computer or mobile device that is connected to the Internet. Technically, it should be a useful application that allows you to be connected to your main data whenever wherever you go. It is also possible to download VuuPC at its official homepage via vuupc.com. However, you should be cautious about using such remote desktop clients because if you reveal your login and password to a third party, cybercriminals might be able to access your data as well.
Another reason you should stay away from such programs as VuuPC is because the likes of VOPackage travel with it. It is very likely that VuuPC is bundled with even more unwanted programs when it is downloaded via third party downloaders, so whatever you do – do not download programs from unreliable websites. You should also remove VOPackage from your computer if you want to avoid a number of potentially unwanted adware applications.
Although adware mostly just slows down your system and spams you with annoying commercials, in the long run it could also expose you to potential system security threats. Hence, uninstall VOPackage right now and then scan your PC with a reliable antispyware tool to make sure that there are no other unwanted programs on your computer.
