What is AutoCompletePro?
AutoCompletePro is a potentially unwanted program that might be associated with specific computer security issues. We cannot say that it is a malicious computer infection because it does not enter target systems surreptitiously. On the other hand, users are often perplexed to find AutoCompletePro on their computers because they do not remember installing the application. If you are one of the affected users, it is strongly recommended that you remove the application from your PC and then run a full system scan with a licensed antispyware tool. It is very likely that you have many other unwanted programs running on your system, and you definitely need to take care of them all.
Where does AutoCompletePro come from?
The distribution method applied by AutoCompletePro is one of the things that do not allow us to categorize this application as malware. After all, it is very easy to download the application individually from autocompletepro.com. When a program has an official website, and it does not indulge in suspicious distribution methods, it cannot be considered malicious by nature.
The only problem is that AutoCompleteProis a freeware application and it means it is distributed for free. As a result, it might be included in freeware bundles that are promoted via third-party websites. Third-party sites do not state explicitly just how many additional programs are included in a freeware package, so users may not be aware of the fact they download AutoCompletePro and other unfamiliar applications when they want to install a particular program found on a file-sharing website.
What does AutoCompletePro do?
The main promotional tagline at the main website says that AutoCompletePro “creates a rich autocomplete search suggestions experience for in-site search.” It goes to explain that “search suggestions are customized for you and the site you’re searching, based on tour interests and the website’s community.” From this, we can see that the application is supposed to be a very individualistic tool that can be customized according to your web browsing habits.
Perhaps that is something you have been looking for a long while, and AutoCompletePro sounds like an answer to your prayers. However, we would not be so hasty as to say that it is okay to utilize this program just like that. Our security researchers have found the program’s files are not clean. Meaning, they have been detected by multiple security applications as being associated with malware or adware. What’s more, AutoCompletePro is considered to be an adware helper, similar to HomeTab application, which means it enables a particular adware program to function properly. This fact suggests that AutoCompletePro is definitely only one of the many unwanted applications on-board, and if you do not do anything about it, you will soon be exposed to the potentially corrupted content.
How do I remove AutoCompletePro?
