What is VuuPC?
VuuPC is a potentially unwanted program that presents itself as a remote desktop client. This program has an official web page, but users far more often install VuuPC onto their computers bundled with freeware from third-party websites. If you are not careful about using this application, your logins and passwords might be leaked to cybercriminals, and they will be able to access your computers and mobile devices connected via this application. It is a disturbing security threat that should not be ignored. Thus, the sooner you remove VuuPC from your computer, the better.
Where does VuuPC come from?
There is an official homepage for the application at vuupc.com. It does not look too reliable, considering it is full of third-party advertisements. The homepage claims that with VuuPC, you can access your PC from anywhere. However, the main homepage is not the only distribution source. In fact, it is far more likely that VuuPC arrives onto target computers bundled with freeware via third-party downloads. You should be able to choose NOT to install VuuPC onto your PC if you go through the installation process carefully. Do not miss the possibility to opt out of installing unwanted applications by skipping necessary installation steps.
There are several freeware and adware applications that carry VuuPC around in their setup. These programs include AnyProtect, DealPly, Bonanza Deals, Delta toolbar and others.
What does VuuPC do?
As you can already tell, this program connects multiple computers and mobile devices via Internet. It will start automatically with every system boot because upon installation VuuPC creates a new autorun value in Windows Registry. It also creates a scheduled task named VuuPCUpdate. It means that the program regularly connects to the Internet to upload and download data, in order to keep itself constantly updated.
VuuPC also installs additional programs such as VOPackage onto your PC. These additional programs are usually adware-related applications that either generate commercial advertisements or download more adware onto your system. Although VuuPC may seem to be useful, there are more disadvantages than advantages of having this program, so if you are computer security-minded user, you will make sure to delete VuuPC from the system.
