What is Video Converter?
Video Converter sounds like a useful application that can help you convert your videos. The program promises you many useful functions and an application that is free of charge, but our security experts say that Video Converter is a potentially unwanted program that is associated with a number of security issues. Not to mention, what good could you expect from a program that came to your computer uninvited? If that is the case with Video Converter for you, then you definitely need to remove the application immediately. Scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual removal instructions.
Where does Video Converter come from?
This potentially unwanted application technically has more than one distribution method. First, it can be downloaded from freevideoconverterapp.com. Second, it can be distributed in software packages.
Freevideoconverterapp.com is the official website for the application, and that wedsite informs you about the program’s functions and how it can improve your everyday computer experience. On the other hand, we do not believe that users often download Video Converter from the official website, unless they get redirected to the page after they have clicked some pop-up ad on an adware website.
The far more likely distribution method is via software packages. Video Converter can come bundled in third-party installers that are hosted on file-sharing websites. For instance, you may be looking for an entirely different application, but Video Converter just happens to be part of the package, and, as a result, you install several unnecessary programs on your PC.
What does Video Converter do?
If we were to take a look at the main website, we would get the idea that Video Converter should “solve all your video conversion problems” by converting “videos to whatever format you want.” For example, it should help you convert “video to mp3 in one click.” That kind of functionality definitely sounds useful, especially if you have to deal with different types of videos on a number of social websites. However, we would like to shed some light on the other side of this application.
When you install Video Converter on your PC, this program can collect personal information about you, including domain name, browser type, operating system, viewed web pages, IP address, location information, and so on. All of this information can later on be shared with third parties for advertising purposes. Just like Unfriend Monitor, Mahjong World Contest, Farm Frenzy 2, and other programs from the PullUpdate family, Video Converter can also display commercial advertisements and pop-ups that will not add up to a pleasant computer experience, not to mention that the third party ads may inadvertently expose you to potential security risks.
How do I remove Video Converter?
Since it is not possible to keep this application on your PC, you should remove Video Converter via Control Panel right now. If this program arrived at your system in a software bundle, you need to locate and terminate other unwanted applications as well.
Scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner to find out which programs must be eliminated immediately. Once you get the list, initiate an automated software removal.
