Users that work with various documents and files are often looking for reliable file compressing programs. TZip may seem like a perfect solution for them. Developers of this application claim that TZip works faster than traditional tools and supports as many as 42 compression formats. On top of that, the program is completely free. Everything looks very good, but one bad apple spoils the barrel. This program often comes to your computer without your permission and is classified as a potentially unwanted application. Moreover, it launches a process on your system that may later install a browser hijacker. So, it is better to remove TZip and look for more reliable tools.
TZip was developed by a company named Navigation network co. The same company stands behind a process named ntsvc.exe. The compression tool launches this process on your computer after installation. Some antivirus programs consider this process dangerous and there are reasons for that. This process is capable of installing browser hijackers on your system. If you keep TZip on your computer, soon you may find your default homepage or search engine changed to istartsurf.com or qqovd.com. Our researchers had tested both these search engines before and came up with a conclusion that they should be eliminated. Those engines will show unreliable results to your search queries and may provide you with links to untrustworthy webpages.
There is another thing we would like to draw your attention to. TZip is not only distributed in an official way, but it also comes packaged in bundles with other applications. If you are a common visitor of file-sharing or free software downloading websites, then the presence of this file compression tool on your system could be easily explained. You have downloaded a program from the Web and installed it without attentively going through the installation wizard. Thus, you have missed a possibility to deselect all the additional programs that came along together with the downloaded application. You should be more careful in this matter as malicious software is also distributed in bundles.
You will increase your security and protection level by eliminating TZip. The program is not malicious by itself and even could be used as a useful file converter. However, keeping this program on your computer may result in your browser being hijacked. This could lead to unpleasant consequences, to say the least. Therefore, you need to prevent things by removing TZip from your computer, and this job could be done by means of Control Panel. If you are not sure of yourself, just follow our step-by-step instructions. However, if your browser is already affected by any of hijackers, it would be quite hard to restore your default settings. Thus, we recommend that you install reliable security software. Have any question or look for a recommendation? Feel free to contact us by posting a comment below.
