Dezipper has been classified as a malicious application that you should remove if you have it installed. The toolbar is yet another product developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. Do not be fooled by the fancy company name of this developer, because all of its products are malicious, and so is Dezipper. Therefore, we recommend that you remove it from your computer because it features a lot of malicious traits that will put your computer and your personal information at risk. If you want to learn more about this infection, then you have come to the right place.
So, let us delve deeper into the application’s functionality. It is advertized as a browser-bound archiving application that can both zip and unzip archived files. Allegedly, the application supports the most popular archiving formats, and can even compress archives to save disk space. However, this is not exactly true.Testing has shown that the compression application must be downloaded separately, but it is not on par with real archiving programs, such as WinRar.
If you get infected with this malicious toolbar, it will forcibly change your browser’s homepage and search provider. They will be changed to a customized version of Ask.com. Research has shown that the search engine provides unreliable search results. This means that you might be subjected to various links that can redirect you to malicious websites.
These websites might contain malware downloads, which, if downloaded, will wreak havoc on your computer. Your computer might get infected with Trojans, keyloggers, rogue applications, and so on. Every malicious application has specific functions. Some of them might steal personal information, passwords, and so on. Others might take control of your computer entirely, and prevent you from using it. So you should definitely remove Dezipper before other, more dangerous infections creep in.
As mentioned, Dezipper has been developed by the malware developer Mindspark. Typically of Mindspark infections, Dezipper has its dedicated website at Dezipper.com, from which the infection is distributed. The application is compatible with Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer, and is installed as both a browser extension and a Windows application.
Dezipper is a cleverly advertised malicious application that you should remove, because its functionality is rather doubtful, since it forcefully changes your search provider and homepage. The search engine promoted by the infection could lead to more infection as you use it. So we recommend that you remove the application as soon as possible.
