I wrote this article to help you remove Panda Viewer. This Panda Viewer removal guide works for all Windows versions.

Panda Viewer is not a helpful application. Yes, its name does sound cute but do not let yourself be fooled by it. Panda Viewer is a potentially unwanted program which is lying to your face. The utility is advertised as a free tool which helps you read various types of graphic novels. Well, this is a lie. First of all, the PUP is not free. Yes, you may not pay money for it, but you definitely pay with your privacy and comfort. Second, it doesn’t allow you read graphic novels. Not at all. What it does is to turn your online activities into a nightmare.

Luckily for you, we can help you remove this intruder before it is too late. Yet, you need to act promptly. The longer the pest remains on board, the worst your predicament gets. Do the right thing and get rid of the infection immediately. The sooner it is gone, the better for both you and your machine. Do not delay. Delays lead to regrets.

With the PUP on board, nothing is the same. Your online experience is not the same. Every time you open one of your browsers, you get redirected to suspicious-looking sites. Also, additional tabs open all the time. Each online video you watch gets paused for unusually long commercials breaks. Your entire screen is covered with advertisements which become more and more with each passing day. You are forced to deal with an avalanche of ads on daily basis.

All kinds of pop-ups, commercials, deals, coupons, best prices, video ads, etc. will be covering your whole screen all the time. Can you work with such conditions? We highly doubt it that you could get any work done with the constant redirections and the never-stopping ad flood. But there is more. The adware`s shenanigans don’t only disturb you. They expose you to danger.

You see, these numerous ads are sponsored. You know what this means, right? Crooks use them to generate Web traffic to specific pages so they could gain profit. And their profits come only at your expense. They are using the pay-per-click mechanism so every time you click on an ad you help hackers fill their pockets. And the worst part is that you risk filling your own machine with more infections in the process.

Most of the ads conceal other threats which are only one click away from attacking you. You can find your PC brimming with parasites in no time. And if that happens how long do you think it will last before the Blue Screen of Death appears? One threat you can tackle but 5 of 10… not so much. Don’t take that risk. Follow our removal guide below and clean your PC once and for all. If you don’t, you will regret it sooner rather than later.

How did you end up with Panda Viewer on board? If you didn’t download it yourself, how did it enter? Simple, the pest tricked you into giving it permission to get in. This is what infections do. They turn to tricky tactics like freeware bundles, fake updates, email emails, and corrupted links to seek your consent. If you are careless and don’t pay attention, you give it without realizing. For instance, while you think you are updating Java, you may be installing a malware instead.

Always read the EULA before accepting it. Do not skip the fine print as it may contain some misleading clauses. Forget about clicking “next” in blind faith. This leads to infections. Do not make yourself an even easier target by being negligent.
