FileOpener is a potentially unwanted program that is another variant of File Opener Pro. The tool is promoted as useful, but it may cause several issues. Even if FileOpener does what it is advertised for, its disadvantages may outweigh any user-friendly features. The program was probably included in the package of another free legitimate tool downloaded from the Internet. Thus, FileOpener was not detected as suspicious by the AV tool if such is present in the system.
As already mentioned, the unwanted application may have entered the system alongside another free program. If the user systematically opts for the advanced software installer, he will have the chance to deselect any added software he does not wish to install. Another crucial safety tip is always reading the download agreement and EULA (End User License Agreement).
FileOpener is similar to File Opener Pro. It may promise the user to help him open Microsoft files such as:
- Microsoft Word documents.
- Adobe PDF documents.
- Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
- Audio and music files.
- Video and picture files.
- Text and binary files.
However, security researchers have concluded that FileOpener is a PUP and as such, should be removed to avoid further PC damage.
