What is HolaInput?
HolaInput is a new application that should enable users to type in English in a fast and convenient way. The program says that it will guess what you are about to type and show a whole word. In other words, users will not need to write the entire word themselves in order to see it on the screen. This feature should help them save some time. In addition, this application promises to find all the spelling mistakes and correct them for the user. Despite the fact that HolaInput seems to be a beneficial application, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com classify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Of course, there are reasons for that. If you decide that you do not want to keep such a program installed too after you read through this article, you should know that you will be able to remove it rather easily because the application itself can be removed via Control Panel. Of course, specialists recommend reading this article from beginning till end first.
What does HolaInput do?
You might not even notice when HolaInput slithers onto the computer and do not know that it is present for some time; however, we are sure that you will notice a new folder in %APPDATA%, %PROGRAMFILES%, and/or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%. In addition, HolaInput will add its main file HolaInput.ime to %WINDIR%\System32 or %WINDIR%\SysWOW64, depending on the version of Windows OS. Last but not least, specialists have observed that it will create the HolaInput Value in HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. It does that to be able to launch together with Windows OS. Finally, several new registry keys will be created in the system registry:
As can be seen, the application applies many changes to the system. Of course, these changes do not immediately make it a potentially unwanted program; however, if you notice them, you can be sure that this PUP is installed on the system.
The application will also place its shortcut on your Desktop in order to be easily-accessible. If a user double-clicks on this shortcut with an intention of opening the program, he/she notices a message saying that CTRL+SHIFT have to be pressed in order to enable it. Unfortunately, nothing really happens if a user does that, which means that HolaInput is not as beneficial as it claims to be. This is one of the main reasons why HolaInput is considered to be a PUP.
It should also be emphasized that this application forces users to use Search.holainput.com. It might seem at first sight that users have an opportunity to un-tick the checkbox and prevent changes from being applied; however, they soon notice that they cannot install the program if they do not leave the checkbox marked. Therefore, the majority of people agree with the changes. Nobody knows whether or not this search engine is really decent. Therefore, we suggest being careful with it. If you notice any ads or strange links, do not click on them in any way because you might cause harm to your PC in the blink of an eye.
There is, of course, another disturbing fact about this program. Researchers who have tested this application have revealed that it is going to record IP address, the date and time of your PC, and even your search queries, if you use its search engine (Search.holainput.com). In case you want to save your privacy, you should definitely remove HolaInput right now and then install reliable security software on your computer.
