What is PackEditorTools?
PackEditorTools claims to be a useful application that packs “all the design tools in one,” but what you really get is third-party advertisements instead that may lead you to more malware infections. Having this ad-supported program on your PC may mean that you have visited freeware websites lately and installed a software package. In that case, there may be more threats on your computer that you can manually manage. It is essential to know the risks you may face if you keep this application on your system. That is why we share with you what our malware researchers have discovered while testing this infection. Before going into more detail, we can tell you this: You need to delete PackEditorTools if you want to save your computer from more malware attacks.
Where does PackEditorTools come from?
This useless application definitely cannot come from its own website, packeditortools.com, because you simply cannot download it from there. Although there is a “Free download” link on the page, no matter how you click on it, nothing happens. It feels like the publishers do not even want you to be able to download their product, which sounds a bit weird; and makes this application rather questionable, too. PackEditorTools was developed by a company called Tuto4PC. It does not take too long to find out how suspicious this developer is; you only need to google it. If you have an active security tool, it may warn you right away that you are dealing with a malicious site as soon as the search results page displays. How about that? Do you think that could happen to a reliable and reputable company or product? That is a big red flag to signal for you to stay away from this developer and all of its products.
Since PackEditorTools is not available on its website, we can just infer that it might spread via freeware bundles. If it cannot be found in bundles yet, it is only a question of time. Most adware applications are distributed this way. But, of course, schemers will not stop at one adware app per bundle; they usually pack a couple of malware threats in the same package in the hope of making a lot of money by third-party advertising. This business is mainly built on unsuspecting and inexperienced computer users who would click on misleading “best” offers, coupons, and “irresistible” deals just to save money. With every click you practically support those behind this adware program. The only way you can clean you operating system is to remove PackEditorTools, but do not forget about the possibility that there may be other threats as well. You can use a free online scanner to determine what kind of infections may be endangering your computer. You need to eliminate all of these threats if you want feel secure while using your PC.
What does PackEditorTools do?
PackEditorTools pretends to be an awesome tool with “lots of options for video, photo, design,” but, in reality, you get nothing else but a window frame in the bottom-right corner of your screen with scrolling ads advertising third-party design-related tools and software. But that is not all. This adware also starts to annoy you with pop-up ads and coupons depending on what type of websites you visit. These third-party ads, however, may be potentially dangerous and can lead to more malware infections or malicious websites. There is only one way to stop the flow of these unreliable ads, and that is to delete PackEditorTools ASAP.
