Do you know what Media Converter Pro Promos is?
If you have downloaded Media Converter Pro Promos, you have to ask yourself if you did that on purpose or if you were pushed to do it. The extension is presented as a tool that can show “relevant advertisements as you browse the web,” but we doubt that many people would willingly install an advertising tool. Of course, it is suggested that it can display ads that are specifically tailored for its users, and so some might be intrigued by it. Ultimately, if you installed it hoping that it would help you find amazing deals, this is the time you need to rethink your decision. Continue reading to learn all about this PUP (potentially unwanted program), and if you end up deciding that you want to remove Media Converter Pro Promos, we have a guide for you.

If you used neither of these sources, perhaps you employed an unreliable bundled downloader, or you do not know where the PUP came from at all. In any case, this is the best time to perform a thorough system scan. Ideally, nothing will be found by the malware scanner you employ, but if other threats are detected, do not wait to delete them.
