Book Source is an application that should be removed from the system despite the fact that it promises to enable users download books for free and thus help learners and students. It seems that this application really works as it promises to, i.e. it allows users to download books; however, it might perform undesirable activities too. It is up to you whether or not to keep it, but you should know that this piece of software might really act in an annoying way if you decide not to erase it. We will tell more about Book Source further in this article. We are sure that we will help you to decide whether or not to keep it.

What does Book Source do?
Some users do not even know that they have a potentially unwanted program installed on their systems because they usually do not do anything really bad and users do not notice anything strange. Of course, it is still possible to say whether or not a potentially unwanted application is installed on the system. In case of Book Source, you will notice the Book Source folder in C:\Windows. This folder usually contains two files: Book Source.exe and Box.exe. Have you already found them? If so, Book Source is undoubtedly installed on the system. You can decide whether or not to keep it; however, we are 99% sure that you will decide to get rid of it when you find out how it is really going to act.
Book Source will enable users to download books for free; however, it will also act in an undesirable way. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have tested this program and found that it will download a malicious module from analytic-report.com one day, which means that it will start displaying various fake alerts on a user’s screen. In most cases, they say that a user has to activate the Windows OS:
You Must activate Windows within 1 day to continue using all Windows features
Users will also see a telephone number on these alerts – 1-888-479-3649. A number should help users reach the Technical support and thus activate Windows; however, we still do not recommend dialing it because there is no doubt that alerts you see on your screen are fake. The creator of Book Source just seeks to convince users to dial the number. If you contact the so-called Technical support, you might be offered to buy some kind of application. Unfortunately, the application is not necessarily useful or reliable. In addition, the provided number might be a premium-rate telephone number, which means that you might get a huge bill. Taking into account that all these alerts are fake, you should ignore them all, do not dial the number, and simply rush to delete Book Source from PC.
Where does Book Source come from?
Researchers say that Book Source is an application that works in a similar manner as Quicky Translator and Free YouTube Downloader. Therefore, it is not surprising at all that this potentially unwanted program is distributed in a very similar way. Yes, Book Source has an official web page; however, the Download button is not working there, so it is not likely that users get this program from its official web page. According to experts, this PUP is distributed in software bundles. In most cases, users get these software “packages” from torrents, file-sharing web pages, and other unreliable sources. It is not very easy, but it is still possible to protect the system from harm. Therefore, you should take care of your PC’s safety as soon as possible.
