Multitimer is a simple timer and alarm application that might pose an indirect threat to your system security. As a matter of fact, we have not found anything suspicious with regard to this software per se; however, its distribution methods are quite questionable. We have categorized this potential threat source as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Although this PUP may not exhibit suspicious traits, we must add "yet." We have found that this application could be similar to FolderShare, and come with ad-support programs in the future. In any case, if you find this program on your system and you do not recall installing it, you could have multiple system security issues right now. We recommend that you remove Multitimer from your PC but first, let us tell you in more detail how this PUP may sneak onto your system without your knowledge so that you can avoid similar threats in the future.
You can download this simple tool by visiting its webpage, multitimer.fun. There is little chance that you would know this URL or find it in a web search. It is a very simple webpage with hardly any information about this program. Before you download and install any free software, you should actually run a web search to see whether your target is a reputable and reliable tool or not. You may find out, for example, that you should delete Multitimer as a potentially unwanted application. Or, you may find that there are multiple fake file-sharing websites promoting it, which is quite suspicious again as you could infect your computer with multiple threats.
We have also found that this PUP may be distributed in questionable, deceptive ways. It is possible that you install it while installing a software bundle, which may be packed with other PUPs, adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, and so on. Have you downloaded free software from questionable torrent or freeware sites lately? If so, it is quite likely that you installed a number of threats without even realizing. You need to be extra cautious with these bundles because they can be very deceptive. You always need to select the custom option whenever available or else, you may not see what you are about to install. If you do not want to infect your machine with such threats, you need to avoid shady file-sharing, gaming, video streaming, betting, and porn pages. It is also advisable to refrain from clicking on third-party advertisements because it can also end up badly for you. All in all, we suggest that you delete Multitimer from your computer and follow it by scanning your PC with a reliable online malware scanner to see how badly it is infected, if at all.
This PUP is a simple timer as well as alarm. It autostarts with Windows without the option of disabling it, which can be rather annoying after some time. We have not found anything dodgy about this tool, to be quite frank. But we are not convinced either that this is a useful application that you must have. As we have mentioned, it is similar to another application, which started to spread with adware apps after a while. So, it is actually possible that in the near future this PUP will also come with malware threats on board even officially. It is up to you whether you want to keep such a tool on your computer. We certainly advise you to remove Multitimer.
Since this PUP creates Run registry entries, it makes sense to remove those as a first step. Then, you can delete the related folders to eliminate this useless PUP. Please follow our guide below if you would like to do this manually. Of course, editing the registry has its own risks, so only use our guide if you are certain of what you are doing. Remember that this software could be totally innocent and there may be way more dangerous threats on board. Even if you decide that you need this tool in the end, you should remove all other potential and malicious threats if you would like to feel safe in your virtual world. We advise you to install a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter, which can automatically take care of all your system security issues.
