QuickViewer Removal Guide

Do you know what QuickViewer is?

QuickViewer has been classified as an adware type application that apart from injecting annoying advertisements into your browser does not do anything. We recommend that you remove this infection, but not simply because it is annoying, but due to the fact that the ads promoted by it might contain links to infected websites or malware downloads. Needless to say, your computer’s security might be severely compromised in various ways if additional malware finds its way on your PC via QuickViewer. We will discuss the threats this infection poses in greater detail. We have also included a guide that will help you manually remove it.

QuickViewer is very similar to its clones, such as RightCoupon, RealDeal, TicTacCoupon, and so on. Note that all of these infections including QuickViewer are based on the JustPlugIt engine. This engine is commonly used by adware developers because it is easy to work on. However, it is also very vulnerable; therefore, some versions of the application might be tampered with. So, you should remove this app due to its vulnerabilities. At any rate, the program can be found bundled with the InstallRex, Amonetize and Vittalia installers. And like its counterparts, it is distributed via fake download buttons on various websites that distribute pirated software.

This infection is not hazardous on its own, but the advertisements displayed by it certainly could be. Adware developers often do business with various shady advertisers who promote questionable content. In some extreme cases the advertisements could contain links to infected websites or malware downloads that infect your computer with ransomware, rogue anti-spyware, and so on. Actions taken by such infection could prove detrimental to your computer. You should remove QuickViewer because such programs could encrypt your files and permanently damage them. Cyber criminals could keep tabs on your browsing activities and even steal personal files from your computer. And above all, some malware could damage your hardware components.

Another very important aspect we must cover about this program is its ability to gather information about the user of the infected computer. Ordinarily this application might collect information such as browsing history, search queries, IP addresses, and so on. But since QuickViewer is very vulnerable, it can be reprogrammed to perform other malicious tasks, such as recording keystrokes. This is very dangerous, since cyber criminals could get hold of personal information such as banking credentials, passwords and so on. So you should definitely remove this infection.

It is oblivious that this application is dangerous, because it might steal personal information such as passwords and banking credentials. The third-party ads displays by this app are dangerous as well, because they might be supplied by cyber criminals looking to infect you PC with ransomware, and so on. So do not hesitate and remove QuickViewer from your PC ASAP.
