Do you really need such programs like AutoCompletePro to auto-complete your search keywords for you? Even if you search a particular website? You see, relying on third-party applications for such functions may not be the best idea. Albeit such programs are seldom malicious, they are known to be vulnerable to third-party exploitations, and that is why AutoCompletePro is considered to be a potentially unwanted program. You will do yourself a favor if you remove this application from your system. It might have arrived in a software package with some other unnecessary programs, so why don’t you run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner to check for other intruders?
We are sure that this application gets distributed bundled with freeware because not all users come across its official website on purpose. You can download the program from autocompletepro.com, but it is very unlikely that users are really looking for this application or this function. Not to mention that there are a lot of complaints that claim users have no idea how this program managed to enter their systems. Thus, we have solid grounds to assume that the main distribution method employed by this potentially unwanted program is software packaging.
Needless to say, AutoCompletePro does not look like a dangerous infection at all. In fact, if you were to take a look at its main site, you would get the impression that the program could be quite useful. It says that AutoCompletePro “creates and maintains data sets of search suggestions for every site on the web, based on its content, the patterns shared by the community searching the site and the actual search engine’s abilities and limitations, with the goal of making search better, faster and more accurate.” With that, some users may think that AutoCompletePro could be a great addition to their default search engine.
However, we would like you to take note of other facts about this application unearthed by our security researchers. During our tests, we have found that the files of this program are often detected as potential threats by various security applications. For example, some of the AutoCompletePro files could be associated with Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT, W32.HfsAdware.65BE, Riskware.W32.WebTooblar.dejknp, and so on. As such, it would not be surprising that our security team says the program may also function as an adware helper, generating and displaying commercial advertisements based on your web browsing history.
Annoying commercial ads are definitely something you would NOT want to encounter on your browser daily. Not to mention that constant exposure to unfamiliar third-party content could easily lead to malware infection. To put it simply, if the additional functions of AutoCompletePro go out of hand, you might have to fight a dangerous infection that would target your personal information and your money. No user would want to waste her time doing that, so the easiest way out of this situation is removing AutoCompletePro early on.
Open your Control Panel and uninstall AutoCompletePro manually. Please note that manual removal may not be enough to take care of all the unwanted files and leftover programs. Relying on an automated antispyware tool would help you terminate the remaining threats, and at the same time, your system would be safeguarded against similar problems in the future.
