We were forced to categorize Video Converter as a potentially unwanted program because the application often enters target computers uninvited. What’s more, it may have some particular features you may not welcome. If you happen to have Video Converter on your computer, and you have no idea how this application managed to slither into your PC, then you definitely have to remove it. While you are at it, you should scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner and find more useless pieces of software. Please bear in mind that such applications seldom get distributed individually. They usually travel in packs.
Truth be told, this program has an official website that you can access via freevideoconverterapp.com. The website says that with Video Converter you can “solve all your video conversion problems” and “convert videos to whatever format you want.” Sure enough, if you download the program from this website, we can only warn you about potentially unwanted side effects you may experience during the use of this application. However, it is far more likely that Video Converter entered your computer in a software package via a third-party file-sharing website.
It is important to note that Video Converter does not trick unsuspecting users into installing it. Users click the install button themselves. They simply do not understand that the freeware package from a third-party source often contains several applications. The installation wizard should notify you about all the additional applications you are about to install on your computer, but, if you breeze through it, it is only natural that you miss the chance to avoid installing Video Converter. As a result, it is easy to see why Video Converter, Unfriend List, Unfriend Monitory, Farm Frenzy 2, and many other programs from the PullUpdate family manage to enter multiple computers worldwide.
Disregarding whether Video Converter can actually help you convert videos into different formats, we have to consider other behavioral patterns of this program. For example, it is known that the application collects information about you, including your IP address, your operating system, the web browsing history, and so on. Later on, this data could be leaked to affiliated third parties for online marketing purposes. Soon enough, you could be exposed to commercial advertisements embedded with content related to your web browsing history and your web search tendencies.
If you happen to be spammed with pop-ups and other types of ads shortly after Video Converter appears on your computer, it is more than obvious that you need to get rid of this program immediately. Open your Control Panel and uninstall Video Converter manually before this application manages to expose you to potentially corrupted websites.
We would also like to point out that manual removal will not always get rid of all the potential threats. As mentioned, Video Converter must have entered your PC in a software bundle, so you are bound to have more programs you must remove from your system.
Invest in a licensed antispyware tool to scan your PC right now and delete all the dangerous threats automatically. Keeping the computer security program updated will also help you avoid similar uninvited intruders in the future.
