What is WinExpand?
Adware programs are really prevalent these days, so if you do not have a security tool installed, WinExpand might slither onto your computer one day. The bigger chance to encounter WinExpand is for those users who live in Korea or use a Korean IP address because this program is known to be a Korean adware that is aimed at Korean-speaking users primarily. People who tend to download programs from third-party websites might notice the presence of WinExpand too. If this ever happens to you, make sure that you erase this adware from the system as soon as possible. If you ignore our advice, you might soon infect your system with malicious software. WinExpand will not download them on your system itself; however, the ads it generates might initiate redirections to untrustworthy third-party web pages.

Of course, the main thing that WinExpand is going to do is to show commercial ads. They will appear on your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Unfortunately, this adware might perform other undesirable activities too. Specialists have noticed that it will track you and then collect information about your hardware and your Internet browsing activities. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have noticed that WinExpand will record such details as your IP address, the domain names of the websites, your search queries, and much more.
