What is SpringFiles?
SpringFiles is a potentially unwanted program that should function as a direct download manager. However, its reliability is highly doubtful, and this program might as well expose you to a variety of computer security threats. If you have this application on-board, it is strongly recommended that you remove SpringFiles from your system at once. Please scroll down to the bottom for the manual removal instructions. While you are at it, do take your time to run a full system scan with a licensed antispyware tool and see whether you have more unwanted applications installed. It is very likely that there are at least several unwanted programs running on your system.
Where does SpringFiles come from?
Tests show that SpringFiles is a direct clone of ExpressFiles application. The programs have almost identical homepages and interfaces. Since it was possible to download the predecessor directly from its homepage, it would suggest that you can also download SpringFiles from spring-file.com. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
The direct download link does not work, and by clicking it you only get redirected to an error page. On the other hand, there are many other distribution channels employed by this application. You can easily download SpringFiles from such file-sharing websites bundled with other freeware applications. What’s more, the freeware download might be initiated when you click a random ad or a pop-up. Do not forget that downloads could be initiated automatically when you land on freeware and adware-related websites, so you have to be careful during your web browsing sessions.
What’s more, SpringFiles itself tries to install additional applications when you go through the setup. It means that even if you have an isolated setup file for this program, it still comes bundled with unwanted and potential harmful software. Some of the applications SpringFiles wants you to install are categorized as adware and browser hijackers. Adware might be just an annoying nuisance, but browser hijackers are genuine computer infections, so you should not tolerate a program that distributes them.
What does SpringFiles do?
Apart from trying to install third-party applications on your PC, SpringFiles itself is designed to download files from the Internet directly. The program should help you locate the files through its search box. The entire principle is similar to that of a torrent client, but SpringFiles is more like a direct download manager.
Perhaps it would not be much of a problem if this program performed its functions the way it is supposed to. Unfortunately, SpringFiles does not seem to be able to find the files you look for, and it surely cannot help you download them all immediately. If that were not enough, the program also displays third-party advertisements. It goes without saying that third-party ads could inadvertently redirect users to corrupted websites, and eventually it could result in a malware infection.
How do I remove SpringFiles?
It is clear that SpringFiles has to be removed because of security reasons. The program comes with an entry in the list of installed programs, so you can delete it via Control Panel. On the other hand, SpringFiles is sure to leave some leftover files and registry entries that might be too complicated to remove on your own. Please do consider investing in a licensed antispyware tool that would terminate all the remaining threats for you automatically and protect your PC from similar intruders in the future.
