What is Snail Translator?
Snail Translator advertises itself as the “world fastest & lightest translator,” and it looks quite reliable at first glance, which explains why there are so many users who download and install this application on their computer. If you have downloaded this translator too, or it somehow appeared on your PC, you should eliminate it as soon as possible. First of all, you should do that because it is known to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Secondly, it might be associated with malicious software. Third, it might try to scare computer users. The application itself can be easily removed because it has an uninstaller in Control Panel, so we are sure that the removal process will not be hard for you at all. In case you still face difficulties during the process, refer to our manual removal instructions that you can find placed below this article.
How does Snail Translator act?
Specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com have tested this potentially unwanted program thoroughly and have found that this application works quite well. In other words, it is really capable of translating texts for you. Of course, we can say nothing about the quality of those translations. Even though Snail Translator is not a completely useless application, it is a really bad idea to use it. Actually, it will work behind your back even if you close it and never open it again because it applies changes to the system in order to be able to launch together with Windows OS. Generally speaking, you have to eliminate Snail Translator not to allow it to work anymore.
We understand that you might wonder why you need to delete a beneficial program from the system. We will enlist all the reasons for you. First of all, researchers have managed to find out that this potentially unwanted program downloads the malware module from analytic-report.com shortly after it is installed on the system. Secondly, it displays fake pop-ups claiming that users need to activate Windows. These pop-ups remind legitimate Windows OS messages, which explains why so many users believe that they really need to take action. Users are offered to “activate” Windows by calling the provided number (1-888-479-3649). Actually, you should not do that because this number might be a premium-rate number. In addition, you might be offered to buy expensive untrustworthy software. Last but not least, you will have to provide personal information. This information might be sold to third parties. As you can see, Snail Translator is definitely not the most trustworthy application, so the best would be to eliminate it from the system completely.
Where does Snail Translator come from?
As Snail Translator is very similar to such programs as Book Source and Quicky Translator, it is not surprising that it might sneak onto computers without permission too even though it can be easily downloaded from its official website snailtranslator.com. As this PUP usually comes in software bundles available on torrent and various file-sharing websites, you should stay away from them. In other words, you should download software from trustworthy web pages only, and it is also a must to find out whether the program you are about to install is 100% reliable. Of course, it is sometimes difficult to say whether or not the application is trustworthy because those that are bad tend to pretend to be good. Therefore, it would be also clever to install a security tool on the system too. We are sure that SpyHunter would ensure the safety of your system.
