I wrote this article to help you remove Daily File Converter. This Daily File Converter removal guide works for all Windows versions.

PUP stands for Potentially Unwanted Program. The Daily File Converter is an example of such an unwanted program. But do not let the name fool you. There is nothing potential about your situation. This application promises to provide multimedia and file conversion. In reality, it spies on you. From the moment it gets installed, this app will monitor your online activity and collect data like browsing history, search queries, etc. Why? To be able to provide targeted advertisements that you’ll not only be attracted to but also more likely to click on.

When you install this questionable utility, your screen will get flooded with numerous adverts every time you open your browser. This PUP aims to turn all existing browsers on your PC into ad-displaying tools. To do that, apart from bombarding you with numerous intrusive content, the pest will also open shady pages as new tabs. The PUP will even go as far as to pause your online videos, just to display commercials. The longer the PUP stays on your computer unattended, the worse your situation will get, leading to your browser not being able to work properly.

The Daily File Converter has an official site that you can download it from. App stores also promote it. But, that’s not the only way this parasite can find its way on your device. It can also spread via spam email messages that contain attachments or executable files. The parasite can be found lurking behind freeware, torrent files, fake updates and infected links as well.

Often, users open messages in their inbox, that are marked as spam. Such emails are designed to lure people into opening the attachments included. That’s how you can unknowingly infect your computer with dangerous software. It will take just one click to unintentionally allow a parasite on your PC. This PUP is not as advanced. It cannot hack your computer. The only way for it to get access to your cyber machine is if you invite it in.

You’ll gain nothing by keeping this Daily Free Converter application on your computer. The longer you extend its stay, the worse your situation will become. Soon, your browser will start to experience difficulties to display all of the advertisements thrown its way, resulting in the browser’s frequent crashes. Also, you’ll notice that your internet speed will drop suddenly, accompanied by constant lagging.

Crooks will try to take advantage of your delicate situation and get their hands on your personal information, such as but not limited to passwords, bank accounts, credit card numbers, IP addresses, Login ID, etc. If you do not want such data to get shared with other questionable third-parties, you need to remove this dangerous software as soon as you detect its presence. Do not delay! Act against this malicious pest before it is too late and it has done damages on your computer you cannot undo!
