What is MyMemory?
MyMemory is a suspicious program that our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com identifies as a potentially unwanted program. If we look at the way this PUP works, we cannot say that it is malicious, but we dare to argue that this program is useless. First of all, the reminders that this program is meant to display might be impossible to notice if you are doing something else. Also, we would not be surprised to learn that they do not show up at all. All in all, that is not the main reason we have decided to analyze this program and discuss it. It was discovered that the PUP can be spread along with malicious threats, and that could put your virtual security at serious risk. Our research team advises that you do not underestimate this potentially unwanted program. Continue reading, and you will be able to make up your mind on whether or not you should remove MyMemory from your computer.
How does MyMemory work?
Our research team could not find an official website representing MyMemory. It is possible that such website does not exist at all. That means that the PUP could be spread across the web by third-party installers. Did you download the program using an unfamiliar installer that offered attractive programs? If you did, you need to check if you downloaded malware along with it. Can you identify malware yourself? Some threats are very transparent, and it is not hard to discover them. Unfortunately, other threats are clandestine, and their interfaces can be very misleading. This just proves that you should never judge a book by its cover. If you are not an experienced user, it is unlikely that you will be able to inspect your operating system thoroughly and uncover all malicious threats – if they exist – which is why we strongly advise using a malware scanner. Install the scanner to examine your operating system and help you figure out if you need to delete MyMemory along with other potentially dangerous threats.
It is unlikely that the suspicious MyMemory was installed onto your operating system without your permission. It is most likely that you were introduced to information suggesting that this PUP is a reliable and beneficial event planner that you can rely on to notify you about upcoming plans. Just like the clone application, Note-up, this PUP allows you to set the date and the reminder time, as well as add information about the event and its location. Once you hit the “Create” button, you probably expect to be reminded of the event efficiently. Unfortunately, as our research team has found out, the reminder pops up without any notice in the background. So, if you are using your computer for other tasks, you might not notice the pop-up at all. Needless to say, that beats the purpose. We are sure that you can find a much better replacement for MyMemory, and, of course, we suggest that you delete this PUP first. After all, it is not that useful, and its infiltration is too suspicious.
