If you install a potentially unwanted application on your system, you will probably notice that a dialog box called “File Type Helper” appears every time you try to open a file of unknown type. Even though it does not seem that this piece of software is going to cause harm to the security of your system or burden your browsing activities, it is still not advisable to keep this application on the system because it has entered without your permission and it is not clear how it is going to act in the future. Besides, you might install other unnecessary software onto your computer if you let File Type Helper reside on your system.

It has been found out that website will open if you select “Search the Internet for the software that can help to open this file” or “Read and learn about without file extension file” options in the dialog box that appears after trying to open the file of unknown type. You will soon find out that you are offered to download software called FreeUltimateFileOpener from the website. This program is developed by Denco Limited and it promises to open the file without any issues. You should not trust this program blindly because nobody knows whether it is fully reliable. Actually, it would be even better if you find more reliable software for opening files.

File Type Helper tends to enter the system bundled with ConvertFilesforFree, which is a typical advertising-supported application. You might install ConvertFilesforFree on the system if you click on those ads offering to install or upgrade such software as Media Player, Flash Player, and the like. If you want to protect the system from various undesirable programs in the future, you should always download software from official websites only and find out whether they could be trusted prior the installation. What is more, it is very important to install new programs with great care; thus, it is advisable to select Custom/Advanced installation options every time you install applications onto your computer.

You will be able to get rid of File Type Helper easily and quickly if you delete ConvertFilesforFree application from the system.
