InstallCore is not a malicious application; in fact, it is not a single program, but a group of installation files that can be either reliable or dangerous depending on what tools they add on the system. Therefore, the only time you should worry about seeing InstallCore is if it recommends installing potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, adware, or other doubtful software from third parties. Under such circumstances, you may want to end the installation process to stop the setup wizard from adding any unreliable applications. Then, we would recommend deleting the installer. The process should not be complicated, but if you need any help, you could take a look at the deletion instructions located at the end of this report. Of course, before sliding below, we invite you to read the rest of the article so you could learn more details about these installers, such as how they work or where they come from.
Same as any other untrustworthy installers, unreliable InstallCore files could come from torrent and many other similar file-sharing websites that offer pirated software or unknown freeware. In other words, if you download the setup wizard from a legitimate site belonging to a reputable company and offering reliable tools, the InstallCore file should be harmless. To learn whether the application or its developer is trustworthy you should do a little research. For instance, it would be a good idea to find a few expert reviews. User reviews can be useful as well, but we would advise not to depend on them too much because programs like adware or similar threats can show fake user reviews to convince others to install them.
Furthermore, our specialists say the suspicious InstallCore files should show software suggestions based on the user’s location. Just like the primary tool the setup wizard is installing, the bundled offers could be adware applications, potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, doubtful toolbars, and so on. What’s more, users should know such programs could be installed automatically if they do not opt-out them. The problem is the choice for doing so might be given only after picking advanced installation, which some users skip to rush the installation process. Besides, the opt-out buttons might be positioned so they would be difficult to notice. Thus, users who do not want any untrustworthy tools on their computers should always pay attention to all details and information given on the installation wizard. However, as we said earlier, if the installer comes from a trustworthy source, it is likely you will have nothing to worry about.
What to do if you come across an InstallCore installer offering unreliable software? No doubt, you should try to exit the setup wizard and cancel the progress done so far. Then, our specialists advise removing the suspicious installer as shown in the deletion instructions located below. On the other hand, if you realized the file was untrustworthy only after the process is already finished, it might be smart to perform a full system scan with a reliable security tool of your choice, so it could help you eliminate potential threats.
