What is Amulec?
Amulec is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP), but you cannot underestimate it. This infection is recognized as a PUP because it comes packaged with Elex hijackers, and it might be installed as an integral part that cannot be separated from the hijacker. Unfortunately, this program is much more malicious than the hijacker that it might come bundled with, and our research team warns that it could be responsible for downloading an array of malicious infections onto your vulnerable operating system. Some (if not most) users will not notice this infection at all unless they check out the uninstallers via the Control Panel. Notably, the PUP might have a slightly different name, and other versions include amuleC, amuleC1, amuleC2, or aMuleCustom. Needless to say, regardless of the name used, you must remove Amulec as soon as possible. Anti-Spyware-101.com malware researchers have carefully tested and assessed this mysterious infection.

How does Amulec work?
As you now know, Amulec is most likely to come bundled with the hijackers from the Elex family. Some examples include Luckysite123.com, LuckySearch123.com, Amisites.com, and Nuesearch.com. These infections are usually spread by third-party software distributors, and that means that they are usually bundled with other infections. Have you discovered additional threats?

Once Amulec is in action, it exploits the eMule engine to download malicious infections without your notice. This means that even if you did not let in malicious infections while downloading the Elex hijackers, they could have been installed by the malicious PUP. In the worst case scenario, extremely dangerous threats, such as Trojans, keyloggers, and ransomware, will be installed onto your computer. No matter how dangerous these threats might be, you need to erase the PUP first to stop it from downloading even more threats onto your vulnerable operating system. In fact, we advise scanning your computer only after you delete Amulec so that you could make an accurate assessment of the infections corrupting it. The good news is that the elimination of this potentially unwanted program is not that complicated.
