Our analysts have classified Assist Point as an adware application that you should remove due to its unreliable nature. As its designation implies, the program displays commercial advertisements aimed at unwary users. Ads promoted by Assist Point might appear harmless and somewhat legitimate to the average user. However, we must inform you that this adware cannot be trusted, as the content originates from various shady advertisers. Assist Point’s developers are not liable for damages if the content promoted by the app inflicts undesirable consequences. Therefore, it would be in your best interest to remove this infection from your computer.
Assist Point is a clone of some other previously released adware apps – Positive Finds, Strong Signal, and Roaming Rate. You should remove all of these infections, as they are equally dangerous. Assist Point displays pop-ups, coupons, and so on. We advise you not to click any ads, as they might redirect you to a website that could infect your computer with malicious software, such as rootkits, spyware, and rogue antispyware, among others, which will be very difficult to remove and could cause irreparable damage to your system and personal files.
Assist Point is advertised on its own dedicated website called Yourassistpoint.com, but you cannot download it from there, since it does not have a download button. It seems its developers took the conventional route and made arrangements with their partners in the freeware sharing business to bundle their undesirable applications with those other products, which people might really want to install. However, all is not lost. If you are attentive, you will notice that all freeware bundles have an option to remove additional software such as Assist Point from the installation process by unchecking the checkbox. Note that these kinds of freeware bundles can be found on websites, such as Soft32.com, Softpedia.com, Brothersoft.com, and many others.
We hope that the information we are providing is sufficient and has helped you gain more knowledge about this infection. We recommend that you remove Assist Point from your computer, because it displays unreliable third-party content. So there is a very real possibility of getting your computer infected with malicious applications. Therefore, we advise you to always check if software bundles contain additional apps and, if so, do not install them. However, if you get infected with this adware, you can always remove it manually or use an antimalware scanner such as SpyHunter to do all the cleaning for you.
