Remove FileOpener PUP from the System

pcFileOpener 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).
