This program uses the infamous Crossrider engine; thus, it is very probable that you might notice various advertisements on your screen. Even though this possibility is not very high, you should still not click on any of those ads if you ever notice them. The main reason why we do not recommend doing that is the fact that you might infect your system with malicious software. In addition to this, ads are also capable of disrupting your browsing processes because you will keep closing them in order to find out what is behind them. If you are seeing ads but still want to keep Magnet Downloader on your system, we have to upset you by saying that it is not likely that this program is ever going to stop distributing them.

Another suspicious fact about Magnet Downloader is the observation that it will install some kind of adware helper alongside it. It will create folders and registry entries with a name globalUpdate and it will run on the system startup. Even though it is not entirely clear what this adware helper is going to do, it is very likely that it has been installed on your system with an intention to update malware. As it is not clear what you can expect from Magnet Downloader, we recommend being cautious about it.

If you decide that it is not worth keeping strange programs on your PC, you can remove Magnet Downloader whenever you want to. The manual removal process is not a difficult at all; however, keep in mind that it will not help you to remove other infections that might be hiding on your system.
