Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


Some people download and install FileFinder on their computers willingly because this application works as a file downloader that enables users to download all kinds of files easily and quickly. Of course, there are many people who cannot explain how FileFinder has entered their computers as well, which suggests that it can find ways to enter computers without the direct permission received from users too. Unfortunately, it is not its only drawback. Specialists working at have managed to find out that this program might act in an undesirable way too and even expose to potential threats. Therefore, FileFinder has been classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If it happens that you notice something suspicious too or you simply do not find it useful, you should remove FileFinder from your computer as soon as possible. According to our security specialists, users should delete this potentially unwanted application from their computers in order to protect their systems from dangers as well. We will provide further information about that in the paragraphs that follow, so continue reading!

First of all, FileFinder is called a potentially unwanted program because it finds pirated files for download. In other words, you will get a pirated movie if you download it using FileFinder. Unfortunately, the majority of files in all five categories (movies, TW shows, music, games, and apps) seem to be pirated. On top of that, it is very likely that FileFinder downloads them from some kind of untrustworthy source, e.g. a torrent website, so chances to download a bad program instead of a movie are rather high, so users must be careful. Of course, the full deletion of FileFinder would still be the smartest decision.

Security specialists do not recommend keeping FileFinder installed on the system also because it has been found that it can download malicious applications automatically on the computer. Of course, it will do that behind your back and will definitely not ask your permission. We do not say that it will start downloading those threats immediately, but you should know that you risk experiencing security-related problems by keeping FileFinder installed on your computer.

FileFinder has an interface with three buttons (popular, search, and downloads), so you will definitely notice its presence quickly even if you have not downloaded and installed it yourself. Users who have more knowledge about computers should also notice that this potentially unwanted application has placed its folder (it has the same name of the application) in two different directories. It is placed in C:\Program Files(x86) and C:\ProgramData\InstallMachine\products. Fortunately, it does not create registry keys or make other modifications, so it should not be hard to remove it from your computer.

Before we start talking about the deletion of FileFinder, we want to explain to you how FileFinder has entered your computer if you are sure that you have not downloaded it yourself, and how it is possible to prevent similar untrustworthy applications from entering the computer. According to our security specialists, FileFinder, most probably, travels in software bundles. There is a possibility that it comes together with a browser hijacker, or this browser hijacker helps FileFinder to enter the computer because there are many users’ complaints on the web that they have both these threats on their PCs. It is not always very easy, but it is possible to prevent untrustworthy software from entering the computer. All you need to do is to install a reputable security application on the system and, of course, enable it. Do not forget to be careful with software from third-party websites as well because untrustworthy applications often travel together with programs promoted on these pages.

You should remove FileFinder from your computer right now if you do not wish to allow untrustworthy software to enter your computer, you do not use FileFinder, or it has entered your PC without permission. Fortunately, this piece of software can be deleted through Control Panel, which means that the removal of this application will not be difficult.
