You can learn more about this if you read the rest of this report. We can also offer our deletion instructions located below the text that show how to manually remove Converter Suite.

To begin with, you might be interested in how this application could be spread. Specialists say that it was an official website called convertersuite.com. Also, at the moment of writing, Converter Suite is still available on the Chrome Web Store page. Besides these sources, we believe the extension could be spread through pop-ups, ads, or bundled software installers as many potentially unwanted programs are spread through such channels. Consequently, we recommend downloading software only from reputable sources if you do not want to receive potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, or tools alike. Moreover, we advise researching each application that you want to install carefully before getting it. Most important things that we believe users should know about the software before installing it is whether a reliable developer created it and if it has good expert and user reviews. If you do not think that being cautious is enough, you could install a legitimate antimalware tool that could help you keep your system clean.
If Converter Suite gets installed, it should add a toolbar below your address bar that may contain links to various websites, including sites that provide file-converting tools. Note that you can bookmark websites that you need to access often, and you should be able to access them the same as with the application’s toolbar. Also, the potentially wanted program might change your homepage and new tab page with a search website called convertersuite.com/newtab/v1/7ei0k1.html. Our researchers say that this website may redirect you to a Yahoo search engine instead of displaying search results itself. So far, it does not look like the extension uses a modified version of search.yahoo.com, which means the results you get might be the same as the results you would get while looking for the same content directly via the Yahoo search engine.
The last thing that you should know about the Converter Suite’s working manner is that it could read your browsing history. As a result, the application could see what websites you visit, what keywords you use, and so on. Such behavior could be unwanted if you do not want any tools to gather such information. In which case, keep in mind that you can erase this potentially unwanted program at any time. Our researchers say that you can delete Converter Suite directly from your Google Chrome’s extensions menu, or you can use a reputable antimalware tool that could help you get rid of it. If you pick the first option, you could use the instructions located below that show how to remove Converter Suite from your browser step by step.
