CornerSunshine is another weather app that allows users to check the weather forecast in the area with a click of a mouse button. Even though its official website cornersunshine.com is down, this piece of software might still enter your computer. For example, you might find its setup on a P2P website, a file-sharing web page, or a torrent. Also, research carried out by our specialists has revealed that this piece of software might be installed by malicious software installers. This is one of the main reasons specialists tend to classify CornerSunshine as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Potentially unwanted programs are not as dangerous as ransomware, Trojans, or other computer infections; however, we cannot call them fully reliable and decent software either. You could decide yourself whether or not you wish to keep this program installed on the system after reading this article. If you decide to remove it, you should read the last paragraph attentively – it focuses on the deletion of this potentially unwanted application.
The first alarming fact about CornerSunshine is that it has been created by software developers who own Picexa, Uncheckit, and OZIP, which are known to be potentially unwanted applications too. We have written about these applications, so we know what to expect from them. According to specialists, users risk allowing malware to enter their systems by keeping these programs because it is known that they are capable of downloading additional malware, especially browser hijackers from the ELEX family, e.g. yessearches.com on the computer without the user’s permission. Theoretically, CornerSunshine might be developed to act like this too as it has been created by the same people. We cannot say that malware will definitely enter your system; however, you will be safe only if you delete CornerSunshine from your PC. We are sure that it will not be a huge loss because there are plenty of other weather notification apps that can be downloaded from the Internet easily.
CornerSunshine is called a potentially unwanted application also because it is distributed using the bundling method and often enters computers rather secretly. Researchers have managed to find out that this undesirable program travels in software bundles with other applications mainly. For example, it is very likely that you have tried to install a particular application from a P2P or a torrent website but got the software bundle instead. You are lucky that you have encountered a potentially unwanted program that can be easily removed from the system this time because much more serious threats might sneak onto your PC using the bundling method. Thus, we suggest being cautious and recommend installing security tool on the computer, if you feel that trying to protect the system by yourself is a waste of time. If you have not decided yet which scanner to use, we suggest investing in SpyHunter. You can freely download the diagnostic scanner from our website. Once you upgrade it, it will protect your PC 24/7.
There are two ways to remove this potentially unwanted program from the system. You can either use the manual removal guide we have prepared for you, or you can scan the system with an automatic malware remover. If you use an automatic tool, you do not need to find and erase other threats (yes, they might be hiding on your computer) separately because a reputable scanner has already found and deleted them all for you.
