Easy File Converter is a new application promoted as beneficial software. It claims that users could easily “search and access popular converter quick links” if they install it on their computers. We have some doubts about its usefulness because all third-party services it promotes can be accessed without its help, so we suggest that you choose another application over Easy File Converter. Also, many users find modifications it makes undesirable. Speaking specifically, it sets a new page on affected web browsers. Since it is set as a homepage and New Tab page, users see it each time they launch browsers they use to surf the web. Without a doubt, not all people install Easy File Converter willingly, which means that some users find their browsers’ settings altered without their knowledge as well. If you are one of them, remove Easy File Converter completely to undo the changes applied. This piece of software is not real malware. Specialists working at 411-spyware.com say that it is nothing more than a potentially unwanted program. These applications do not perform any malicious activities, but the majority of users still find them unwanted. We have provided more information about Easy File Converter in the next paragraph of this article – it should help you to arrive at the final decision regarding the Easy File Converter future.

Not all users install the Easy File Converter browser extension consciously. In some cases, it affects users’ browsers without their knowledge; however, it does not mean that it manages to stay unnoticed for a long time. Our specialists say that it is impossible not to notice the successful installation of Easy File Converter on the system because it applies changes to all users’ web browsers. To be more specific, it sets a new page, e.g. http://search.searchfefc3.com, http://search.searchfefc2.com, or http://search.searchfefc.com as a homepage and New Tab URL. The page set does look like an ordinary search provider. It contains a search box that displays Yahoo! search results and, on top of that, several quick-access links can be found on this page. They open third-party file conversion services. You could access them without the help of Easy File Converter too, so if you do not like all these changes applied to your browser, delete Easy File Converter today without further consideration. If you decide to continue using the promoted search tool as your default search provider, you should know that it will automatically collect some details. You can find all those details listed in its Privacy Policy document, but the most important thing you need to know is that it will record all personal details you enter as well. Therefore, you should never use any details that can identify you personally as your search queries.

As has been observed during research, Easy File Converter is spread exactly the same as other Polarity Technologies Ltd. products. This piece of software usually travels bundled with software promoted at filewon.com, filewin.com, malavida.es, and descargar.es. Of course, some people install it from http://easyfileconverter.com/ or the Chrome Web Store consciously, but we are sure there are more people who do not know anything about its installation. We can assure you that it is not the only potentially unwanted program that might find a way to enter your system, so you cannot keep your system unprotected. We do not say that you need to prevent suspicious software from entering the system all alone. You will protect your system against new malware by installing security software. It does not mean that you can become careless. Keep in mind that it is possible to install untrustworthy software by clicking on malicious links and suspicious advertisements too.

You will remove the search tool that has replaced your homepage and New Tab URL from all your browsers by deleting the Easy File Converter extension. You will remove it from your Internet Explorer using Control Panel, but you will need to access the add-ons manager to erase it from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Our instructions (you can find them right below this paragraph) will help you to get rid of it, but you should know that you can erase it with an antimalware scanner too if something goes wrong and you cannot delete it manually.
