- Installs itself without permissions
CutterFunc is an adware helper that you might be unaware of. This tiny application is installed silently alongside advertisement-supported programs and potentially unwanted programs to assist them. The developers of the associated software could use adware helpers to update software, track information, and restore certain settings after you modify them. Therefore, if you notice adware regenerating after you delete it from your PC, it is likely because you have not removed CutterFunc.
Even though CutterFunc is a program that functions on its own, it is unlikely that you will find it on your PC without other suspicious programs. Most computer users discover CutterFunc alongside the adware built on the Justplugit engine. Some of the programs associated with it include OptiShopper, QuickShop, and Prizecoupon. Unfortunately, you will not delete CutterFunc if you remove the associated advertisement-supported programs from your operating system. In fact, as stated before, it is even possible that adware will be restored if you do not delete this adware helper.
The suspicious CutterFunc has a few different names that users can recognize it by, including GrubTartan, DemiUpgrader, StatEngine, FalconCentre, and EnforcerAide. The uninstaller of CutterFunc could use a different name to trick you and, in some cases, automatic malware removal software. All in all, if the adware helper is installed, it is likely that you will find it under %ProgramFiles(x86)%\DeltaFix. Do not rush to delete the files found in this directory, because there is a quicker way to delete the infection.
We identify CutterFunc as an infection, because it can help restore malicious programs that you choose to delete from your operating system.
