ConverterPro Description

ConverterPro may look like a useful tool at first. It enables you to convert various videos into various media formats. As much this feature is helpful, however, the program may act invasive and may exhibit certain malicious traits.

rp_adware-2-150x150.jpgFirst of all, this ad-supported program may enter your system without your consent. Once installed, it may start generating pop-up advertisements stating that they are brought to you by ConverterPro. Beware of these pop-ups. In addition to being annoying, they are insidious, too. Clicking them may redirect you to unwanted and potentially corrupted websites.

ConverterPro is designed to generate traffic and revenue to its sponsoring third parties by redirecting users to their websites, or by displaying ads of their products and services. The adware, however, is not responsible for the content of these third party websites and sometimes clicking a pop-up may expose your system to malicious content that may further infect your computer.

In addition, while you are browsing, the websites you visit may also be flooded by pop-ups, banners, in-text hyperlinks – all trying to trick you into clicking them.

Ad-supported programs like ConverterPro are also capable of monitoring your browsing activities, recording that information along with some personal data and sharing it with its sponsoring websites.

ConverterPro Distribution

ConverterPro enters your system via free programs you download from the Web. Freeware is usually bundled with various potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and malicious software that sneaks into your system uninvited and causes troubles.

That is why, to make sure you download only the program you want, you must uncheck the bundling option during the installation, as well as all other features you are not familiar with.

ConverterPro Removal

ConverterPro is not safe for your system. It may expose your PC to threats from the Web, slow down your system, interrupt your online activities and spy on your browsing habits.

In order to remove ConverterPro successfully, you must use a reliable and powerful anti-virus tool. It will scan your whole system, detect the malicious components and remove them immediately. It will also continue to protect your system from future threats.
