My Quick Converter

My Quick Converter is deemed as an ad-generating software. Its only real aim is to display pop-up, banner and other ads on your screen; to redirect you to numerous web pages and to set new homepages and search engines to your browsers. The name of programs from this software family such as My Quick Converter are called browser hijackers.

Some general facts about browser hijackers:

Every program that is considered to be a browser hijacker, has been made to serve as an advertising tool. In reality, the aim of these ad producing products is just to broadcast lots of of pop-ups, tabs and/or banners; and to popularize different web pages/ search engines and browser homepages. The people interested in distributing this sort of software are the manufacturers of the promoted products; the providers of the services these programs are advertising; and also the creators of these annoying programs. The ones who pay the latter to develop the best advertising-oriented program are usually the first two groups (the ones displaying the biggest number of pop-ups and causing the greatest number of redirects are considered such). It is believed that the people who are exposed to the ads could buy some of the promoted products; and their manufacturers will earn more money by exposing their products to a larger audience. You can see that  all the parties involved in this ‘pay per click’ system indeed benefit from it.

My Quick Converter Ads Malware

In most of the recorded cases, you might find software like this as a part of a contagious web page or a torrent, or as a component of a video-streaming website. As a result, when you visit or load any of them, you could ‘receive’ the hijacker there. Nonetheless, it is typical for My Quick Converter and the similar products to be hiding inside program bundles and you may be tempted to install them yourself on your PC. What this term stands for is free software sets that get spread everywhere on the web, and might include games, programs, apps, Adware and hijackers inside them. Factually, when it comes to such bundles there is nothing to really worry about. But the ad-broadcasting programs inside them could make them a little suspicious.

Remember that such bundles could also contain very interesting and useful programs and apps. You CAN use them free of charge, without getting the hijacker inside them. You should just make sure that you follow the general piece of advice – whatever you install on your PC, always choose the Advanced {or the Customized} wizard option. In a way like this, every detail about a given bundle is going to be displayed and you are going to see which programs exactly you really need on your computer; and which ones you don’t.

Despite the quite confusing and suspicious way of spreading My Quick Converter, it is not malicious:

Despite the popular misunderstanding, no browser hijacker is mischievous. These programs have been considered ‘potentially unwanted’ because of their shady features, but haven’t ever been labeled as viruses. Of course, there is a reason for that – hijackers greatly differ from the usual malware versions you can catch while surfing the web. For instance, Ransomware and Trojans – the most dangerous malware subtypes, can:

  • hack your system without your knowing or unknowing permission;
  • exploit a program or a system weakness of your computer or simply your naiveté.

What’s next some of their most malicious effects could include deleting your data or corrupting it; locking up files and demanding a ransom in exchange for them; tracking all your personal activities online; hacking your available online bank deposits, as well as your social media accounts and stealing money, or simply compromising you.

On the other hand, My Quick Converter and all the other hijackers have NEVER been able to do anything like that. They may simply tempt you to install them with the entire content of a software bundle, and later on – just review your browsing history. However, no hijacker’s plans ever include to steal from or spy on you, but to simply try to sell you the product or service that you have currently been looking for.
