File Opener Pro

File Opener Pro is a tool that will say what program you need to use to open one or another file extension. This is the only useful feature that this application is capable of providing. In addition, it will show you annoying commercial advertisements, try to promote shady tools, and collect information about you. You should also know that this program usually comes to computers when incautious users receive it in packages with other applications and miss the possibility to decline File Opener Pro. Removal of this potentially unwanted application will surely help you increase the virtual safety level of your PC.

At first, you may find File Opener Pro quite a useful application. You just need to enter any file extension, and you will receive an answer as to which program you need to use to open files with that particular extension. However, all this information should also be available on Google, and you do not need to install additional programs to receive it. Moreover, File Opener Pro will require your system resources as this application will display ads. We suggest that you do not click on any of those ads for several reasons.

First of all, our security researchers have found that by clicking on some of those ads you may install additional programs on your computer. So, the program will try to act behind your back by bringing other applications to your device. You should not trust all the programs that File Opener Pro offers you. Some of them, such as GrooveStream, are not considered completely reliable.

The second reason why you should ignore all the ads generated by File Opener Pro is that some of them may be filled with third-party content. Please note that this program allows third-party advertising. Optimum Installer, the creator of File Opener Pro, admits no responsibility for any third-party content you may encounter while using this application. So, if clicking on any of the ads will redirect you to some corrupted website, you will shoulder all the risks yourself.

You will not be able to download File Opener Pro from an official page dedicated to the promotion of this application. Most probably, this was done purposely, and the way people receive this program is it comes packaged in software bundles with other free applications. There are some dangers embedded in those bundles, not to mention that malicious applications are also distributed in them. So, you should limit the number of programs you download from free software websites as much as you can.

Fortunately, you will not need the skills of a real IT professional to delete File Opener Pro from your system. Even an average computer user will be able to complete the task by locating the potentially unwanted application on his programs list. To make the elimination process even easier, we have prepared a short step-by-step guide that you will find below.

However, please keep in mind that your computer may already be infected by some harmful application that might have come together with File Opener Pro. To know for sure whether your system is at risk, you need to perform a complete scan of your computer. For this, you will have to rely on a professional antimalware tool, such as SpyHunter.
