What is FileFinder?
FileFinder is an application that works as a tool for finding and downloading files. If you open this application and look at it closer, you will notice immediately that it allows users to search for files in five different categories: movies, TV shows, music, games, and apps. Unfortunately, it seems that the majority of these files can be called pirated because FileFinder downloads them from torrent and similar websites. This finding has also revealed that users might download undesirable software instead of movies and other good files. Believe us; those untrustworthy programs might expose you to potential threats very quickly. Therefore, we suggest that you do not download programs from sources you do not know are reliable. If you make a decision not to use FileFinder anymore, you should remove it from your computer because there is no point in keeping a program that you do not use. If it is hard to decide what to do with FileFinder, you should read this article. Specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com have provided more information about this application in it. Also, you will find out how to easily and quickly remove this product of Webitar Production Inc. if you read this report from beginning to the very end.
What does FileFinder do?
FileFinder really enables users to find and download different files quickly; however, it cannot be called a fully reliable program even though it acts the way it should, i.e. works as a file downloader. It is because specialists have found out that it can download untrustworthy or even malicious software (e.g. adware, browser hijackers, PUPs, etc.) to the user’s computer or just put it in danger. As we have already mentioned in the first paragraph, there is a possibility that you will download untrustworthy software instead of a movie or another harmless file if you keep and use FileFinder as your one and only file downloader. As you can see, FileFinder has been put into the category of potentially unwanted programs not without reason.
The FileFinder file downloader seems to be a simple application because it does not make many changes once it enters the computer. As specialists have managed to find, it creates its own folder (it will have the same name as this potentially unwanted program) in C:\Program Files (x86) and C:\ProgramData\InstallMachine\products. On top of that, if FileFinder successfully infiltrates the computer, you will notice its entry in Control Panel. As you can see, it does not try to hide itself, so it is not surprising that users do not even suspect that it can cause security-related problems.
Where does FileFinder come from?
As research conducted by our specialists has revealed, FileFinder has an official website (find-files.org), but it is not working at the time of writing. Of course, the application is still quite prevalent, so there is no doubt that it enters computers somehow differently. It might be true that FileFinder is somehow associated with Tech-connect.biz, which is often classified as a browser hijacker, because there are many complaints on the web that users have both of them installed. According to our researchers, this might mean that the FileFinder potentially unwanted program and the Tech-connect.biz browser hijacker travel together in software bundles or the browser hijacker helped FileFinder to enter the computer. Undesirable applications are very sneaky, and they might find different ways to enter computers, so people who wish to feel safe all the time should install a reputable security tool on their computers as soon as possible. Of course, it is still important to always download software from trustworthy web pages.
