What is SevenZip?

If you find SevenZip on your computer, your system may be infected with a bunch of malware infections because this potentially unwanted program (PUP) can be found bundled with malware. The first sign that you are dealing with a potentially unreliable program is that SevenZip tries to mislead inexperienced computer users and poses as a popular file archiver that is called 7-Zip. This is rather suspicious behavior that does not really scream: “I am trustworthy.” While the application itself is not a dangerous threat to your computer, it may still cause some headaches indirectly. Why would you wait till the threats multiply on your system? According to our malware experts at, you should delete SevenZip from your PC if you do not want to be exposed to the slightest chance of security breach. Let us tell you in more details what you need to protect your computer against and how you can do that.testtesttest

Where does SevenZip come from?

One of the possible sources for this PUP is through its promotional page, We do not believe that this unauthorized version of 7-Zip could get to enough users if this site were the only source though. Unfortunately, this PUP seems to spread on the Internet using software bundling. Our researchers have found malware infections in these bundles, such as adware apps, browser hijackers as well as other PUPs, including AnySend and OneSystemCare. It is quite clear that if you install such a bundle, your computer will be swarming with threats before long.

There is an important lesson to learn when it comes to bundles. You should always use reputable vendors’ or official websites whenever you download free software. It also pays to double-check the application you want to install by running a web search before you even look for a site to download it from. These simple steps can help you protect your PC. However, if this PUP sneaked onto your system in such a bundle, you need to delete SevenZip and all the other threats as well that can be associated with this application.

What does SevenZip do?

To be fair, we need to say that this PUP seems to work just fine; it actually functions as a file archiver. However, when you carefully install this bundler, you will see that AdFactory Technologies is behind it. Even its name is not very “user friendly,” but we know for a fact that this company is responsible for creating the ad-supported program called DocToPDFConverter as well. If you care to Google this application, you will clearly see from the first page of search results that it is something to remove from your computer and not something you should install. Since SevenZip arrives with other PUPs and malware infections, it can indirectly expose you to potentially harmful third-party web content. Therefore, we advise you to remove SevenZip.
