Every user is concerned with the internet connection speed, and there are a lot of different applications that help users measure their speed. EasySpeedCheck is supposed to be one of them, but it is very doubtful whether it is reliable enough. Our security specialists suggest that EasySpeedCheck is a potentially unwanted application because it may display commercial advertisements and make you download unnecessary software. There are more reliable applications to measure internet speed, so your best option now is to remove EasySpeedCheck from your computer. You have to make sure that your system is not exposed to dangerous threats.
One thing we have to point out is that EasySpeedCheck is not a computer virus. For the most part, users download and install this application onto their computers willingly. You can easily download EasySpeedCheck at easyspeedcheck.com although it is also possible to find the application on third-party file hosting websites. What is more, it could be distributed bundled with freeware and potentially unwanted software. It means that even if you do not plan on having EasySpeedCheck on your computer, it may end up being installed onto your system; especially if you are not careful enough and do not read all the installation wizard steps carefully.
When EasySpeedCheck enters the system, it adds an entry in Windows registry that allows the application to auto-start each time you turn on your computer. At first, it seems that EasySpeedCheck works just fine as it checks your internet speed. However, as time goes by, the program begins displaying commercial advertisements. They pop up now and then, and you are constantly offered to purchase a new phone or apply for a new job. The advertisement content may differ according to your web browsing history. It only proves that EasySpeedCheck is rather intrusive, and in the long run this application could expose you to potentially corrupted content.
What is more, in some cases EasySpeedCheck may even urge you to download and install the flash player, even if you have one on your computer already. On top of that, we cannot rule out the possibility that EasySpeedCheck could be exploited by malevolent third party as well. It could be rather dangerous to keep using this program, so if you did not want to have it on your computer in the first place, please remove EasySpeedCheck immediately.
You can uninstall EasySpeedCheck via Control panel, but it may not be enough to get rid of all the unwanted files and applications. If you think that there could be more threats on your computer, run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner, and then remove any detected threats with a licensed antispyware tool.
