Google Image Downloader Chrome Extension
Google Image Downloader Chrome Extension is promoted as a piece of software for downloading and viewing Google Images more conveniently. At the time of analysis, this Google Chrome add-on did not work properly, but specialists have still managed to find evidence that it is not fully reliable software. According to researchers at pcthreat.com, Google Image Downloader Chrome Extension is a typical potentially unwanted application. In other words, it is not malicious software, but it has several drawbacks. Its biggest drawback is the fact that it forces users to install it on their computers. If you installed this extension also because you could not leave the page you entered/got redirected to against your will in any other way, you should remove it right away. We are sure you will not miss this extension even if it works well in your case – it is not as useful as it claims to be. Besides, more reliable applications with similar features are available. You could start using one of them after you get rid of Google Image Downloader Chrome Extension.
Some users download Google Image Downloader Chrome Extension from the Chrome Web Store, but it seems that this browser extension might be distributed using alternative distribution methods too. For example, you might be redirected to/visit by mistake a page stating you need to install the extension to be able to close it. This page might even go full-screen, as researchers observed. In this case, you should tap F11 to exit full-screen mode or press F4 on your keyboard to close your browser completely. As you can see, you do not need to install the promoted piece of software. This is, most probably, only one of several alternative distribution methods that might be used to distribute Google Image Downloader Chrome Extension. Specialists say that it might come bundled too, so you should stop installing applications downloaded from the web carelessly. Hundreds of untrustworthy applications are available, and it might be very difficult to prevent them all from entering the system. Because of this, we highly recommend that you also install an automated antimalware tool to protect your system against them.
Potentially unwanted applications are not real malicious applications, but we still do not recommend keeping them installed. Do not worry; you will disable Google Image Downloader Chrome Extension quite easily too. You need to access the add-ons menu, find it located there, and then delete it. A powerful antimalware scanner should be able to detect potentially unwanted software too, so you can clean your system automatically instead. It is up to you.
