What is AppGraffiti?
AppGraffiti is a potentially unwanted program that users often install on their computers willingly. At first sight, it seems like a useful application that can help you customize your Facebook background. However, users often complain that AppGraffiti displays commercial advertisements without permission, but freeware apps often do that to support themselves. Unfortunately, through these ads users get exposed to potentially corrupted content that might lead to serious computer security problems. Therefore, it is necessary to remove AppGraffiti in order to avoid further computer security complications.
Where does AppGraffiti come from?
Since it is not a computer infection, you can easily download AppGraffiti at appgraffiti.com. Although general users seldom download potentially unwanted programs directly, that does not seem to be the case with AppGraffiti. On the other hand, security reports claim that this program might also be bundled with freeware, so you have to be careful each time you download and install a new application from a third-party source.
In fact, no matter what kind of program you install, you have to check all the installation steps carefully because you might accidentally miss an important part of the information. Either way, if AppGraffiti managed to enter your system, there is no need to panic, because manual removal is not complicated.
