Easy Mac Care is a fake system optimization tool designed for Macintosh.

As developers state, WindowMix is designed to enhance your browsing by adding "more intelligent searching algorithms". However, this is a fool since WindowWix was recently categorized as an adware-type program. Basically, adware is meant to promote intrusive ads, banners, hyperlinks, or coupons that redirect users to malicious and untrustworthy websites that include unwanted programs, fake software updaters, and others. Clicking on any of the ads can also lead to the websites that, once entered, start running executable scripts that will infect PC without users' consent. WindowMix does not conceal its presence and can be easily found by its icon (white magnifying glass with the green background) on the desktop. Besides that, adware is known to be collecting personal data like passwords, browsing history, IP-addresses, and geolocations.

STOP Ransomware is a prevalent encryption virus and blackmailer, that targets valuable personal files. After infection and data encoding hackers start extorting the ransom. There have been more than 200 versions of the ransomware, each version gets slightly modified to circumvent the protection, but main footprints remain the same. The malware uses AES-256 in CFB mode. Shortly after launch, the STOP family cryptographer executable connects to C&C, retrieves the encryption key and infection ID for the victim's PC. Data is transmitted over simple HTTP in the form of JSON. If C&C is not available (the PC is not connected to the Internet, the server itself is not working), the cryptographer uses the hard-coded key and ID in it and performs offline encryption. In this case, you can decrypt the files without paying a ransom. Variations of STOP Ransomware can be distinguished from each other by ransom notes and extensions it adds to encrypted files. For STOP Ransomware under research today, extensions are: .bboo, .rooe, .repp or .alka. The ransom note file _readme.txt is presented below in the text box and picture.
Package Tracking Pro is a regular browser extension that entrenches deeply into your computer meanwhile changing the style of the homepage and other sides of the interface.

I have experienced it myself and know what it actually looks like. It is the time when you get lots of threats and unwanted stuff to your address. On top of that, once it gets installed on your PC it blocks off the access to browser settings so you cannot feasibly change them.
