Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


FileOpener seems to be a very useful program since it promises to help users extract various files. Even though this program seems to be very powerful and beneficial, you should still be very careful with it because FileOpener is classified as a potentially unwanted application. If you have never encountered any of these programs, you should know that they might start acting in an undesirable way. In fact, they sometimes do not act as they promise at all. In case of FileOpener, it will really help you to extract files; however, we still recommend that you remove FileOpener because it is not a completely trustworthy application. It is especially advisable to erase it if it has slithered onto your computer without your permission.

Our security specialists have noticed that FileOpener is going to help you extract files; however, you should not expect that a toolbar will be added as shown on its official website because only an application will be installed on your system. The program itself supports .zip, .rar, .rpm, .tar, .wim, .iso, .lzma, .cab, .cpio, .db, and .gzip file formats and it seems like perfectly decent software. If you have also found FileOpener useful, you should still keep in mind that it is not perfect and it is better to remove it and install another more reliable file extractor.

One of the main reasons why specialists classify FileOpener as a potentially unwanted program is the fact that it travels bundled with various untrustworthy programs. In other words, FileOpener is associated with malicious software. If you simply cannot remember downloading and installing this program yourself, it is likely that it has slithered onto your computer with the help of other applications. Of course, they might be untrustworthy. Actually, these programs might be installed on your system as well, so you should not forget to check the system’s condition after the removal of FileOpener. It is not so easy to detect untrustworthy programs, so we recommend using a reliable scanner for this matter. Finally, our security specialists recommend installing a security tool and keep it enabled if you do not want to lose the battle with malicious software.

In case you are a less experienced user, you can delete FileOpener automatically. The automatic removal is definitely easier because the user only has to click one button, i.e. to launch the automatic malware remover.
