What you need to know about PDF Pro 100 Virus

PDF Pro 100 Virus will show you advertisements as you browse, thus the classification adware. It’s advertised as a program that will help convert documents, similar to Easy PDF Virus. It may seem like a useful feature many users look for but the program is more of an nuisance than useful. It will cause loads of ads to appear as you browse, even on sites that showed no adverts before. PDF Pro 100 adware

The sudden increase in ads might alarm users into thinking that their computers have been infected with serious malware but that is not the case. Adware is not considered to be a serious infection as it does not do direct harm to your device. It’s more of a nuisance than anything. However, its ads are not harmless. If you aren’t careful, you could be exposed to unreliable content, or even malware. Therefore, if you notice that adware has inhabited your device, it’s advisable to not interact with any of the ads while your computer is infected. The program may work as it promises, but the amount of ads it shows you is certainly not worth it. Therefore, we would recommend that you uninstall PDF Pro 100 adware.

You might have downloaded the program yourself, when you were searching for a file converter. However, it’s also possible that you do not remember installing it, and that would be because adware uses the bundling method to install. It may have been attached to a free program that you needed to deselect but did not because you did not notice it. A lot of unwanted programs use the bundling method to install onto computers because it allows them to do so unnoticed.

How does PDF Pro 100 Virus spread?

Like we mentioned above, unwanted programs use the bundling method to spread. It allows them to install unnoticed, which is why it’s a popular method among unwanted program developers. A lot of users are unaware that the freeware they install often comes with additional offers, which are allowed to install alongside without the explicit consent of the user. If you are one who installs loads of freeware, you need to make sure you do it correctly. During installation, make sure you always opt for Advanced (Custom) settings. Those settings will make all offers visible, and you will be allowed to deselect them. If you go with Default, the attached items will install alongside. It’s unlikely that you will pick up a serious infection this way but as you are likely already aware, the added offers can be highly irritating to deal with.

If you did install it knowingly, we would suggest that you be more careful in the future. Before installing any program, look into its reputation and reviews, and make sure it will not bring about any surprises. We also suggest you choose your download sources more carefully. Avoid free download sites that are known to host bundle software.

Will it harm your computer?

It’s not a malicious program so it shouldn’t harm your device. However, you will quickly notice that it’s not what it may seem at first. Whether you actively use it, or it stays in the background, the program will cause ads to appear in your browsers. All popular ones will be affected, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The advertisements sometimes have texts beneath them, like “Brought by…”. In your case, it would say “Brought by PDF Pro 100″, clearly stating which program generates the ads.

You will encounter redirects as well as pop-ups along with regular ads. The redirects and pop-ups are what you should look out for. They may expose you to malicious programs and scams. A common scam shown by adware programs is the tech-support scam. A redirect leads the user to a legitimate looking Windows tech-support website, where a pop-up warns the user that his/her computer has been infected with malware, thus has been blocked. In order to fix the issue, the user is asked to call the provided number to be connected to supposed Windows tech-support. The tech-support people would request remote access to the computer, which if granted would allow them to install questionable software. Obviously, it would not be Windows tech-support the user would be dealing with, but professional scammers instead. These kinds of pop-up alerts will never be legitimate because browsers do not display malware warnings. It might warn about a malicious download or site, but it will never notify about an infection on a computer. Furthermore, a company like Microsoft would never request its users to call them this way.

Another type of ad you might encounter is one that claims you have won something, usually a tech device that is popular at that time, like an iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9. Users are sometimes invited to participate in a survey or are promised the prize right away. The scam would then ask that the user provides his/her personal information and pay a small fee. Since the people behind this kind of thing are scammers, giving away personal information or paying anything is certainly not a good idea.

If you are in need of a file converter, you can definitely find better options out there. And while it will not directly harm your computer, because it causes ads to appear on your screen, we recommend you remove PDF Pro 100 adware as soon as possible.
