What is VAFDownloader?
VAFDownloader is a potentially unwanted application that comes from the same group as ZipperNew, VAFCompressor, DownQuick, and others. These applications promise to provide you with some useful functionality, but they also have more tricks up their sleeves, and these tricks may not be to your liking. Any security-minded user would want this application off her computer, so you will definitely make the right choice if you remove VAFDownloader right now. To find out more about this application and what it might possibly do to your computer, please continue reading the article.
Where does VAFDownloader come from?
We have already established that VAFDownloader is a potentially unwanted program. Applications from this category usually have two main distribution methods: direct and indirect. "Direct distribution" means that users can download the application from its official homepage, and in this case users are aware that they have the program on-board. "Indirect distribution" refers to software bundles. This means that at least two applications are bundled together in the same software installer, and it is usually hosted on a third-party file sharing website. When users download such a file bundle, they unwittingly install several programs at once. Sometimes it is possible to choose whether you want to have the additional programs like VAFDownloader installed, but our main issue with this type of distribution is that users seldom check all the notifications and clauses on the setup wizard.
This also means that users may download this application from vafdownloader.com, and this fact only proves that the program is not a malicious infection. On the other hand, we are certain that the users who find VAFDownloader too annoying to tolerate must have gotten it in a software package, and they could not care less about what this program is supposed to do.
What does VAFDownloader do?
Officially, this program should make your downloads “as simple as copy & paste.” If you were to read the information provided at the official website, you would find out that VAFDownloader “has been designed for inexperienced users. It has one of the most simplified interfaces in comparison to other similar programs out there.” Naturally, if you indulge in downloading very often, a new download manager that can simplify the process is always more than welcome, however, we would urge you to think twice before you open this program.
Our tests have shown that VAFDownloader can generate pop-up notifications and commercial ads during your web browsing. You may also see various advertisements on the “simplified” interface when you run the application. Needless to say, the program does not review the ads, and you can never know what website you will land on when you click them.
