What are Pdfconverterguru.com

Pdfconverterguru.com is considered to be a mixture of both adware and browser hijacker that causes an absolute calamity around your browser. Initially, Pdfconverterguru.com stands for a legitimate host that offers you to install a browser-based extension for Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, called File Conversion Now, that provides quick links to the most popular file converters and updated search. Unfortunately, besides the aforementioned, It also installs special scripts that generate suspicious advertisements and banners across the web. Moreover, it is capable of initiating multiple redirects to different websites on its own which means that your data may be exposed to third-parties figures that can exploit it for revenue purposes. Pdfconverterguru.com is focused on putting your privacy under risk, but not on improving customer experience. Thus, you should remove an extension or program that leads to its redirects.

How Pdfconverterguru.com ads infected your computer

Whilst ransomware use fake spam messages, adware and browser hijackers are infiltrated a little bit differently.

Because of illiteracy or inattentiveness, people either leave marked boxes unchanged or simply skip them to install the desired program faster. Obviously, this leads to infections of Potentially Unwanted Programs that change multiple settings causing discomfort as a result.
