Usually adware applications pretend that they can help you purchase something at a lower price, but not all adware programs are associated with monetary operations. At least not explicitly. For example, MovieDea is an adware application that is supposed to improve your online video viewing experience. It does not say anything about saving your money, but you can be sure to experience an onslaught of commercial advertisements if you do not remove MovieDea right away. Consequently, leaving the application on your computer may endanger your system’s security, so you have to do everything you can to terminate any potential threat that might be currently hiding in your system.
To be perfectly honest, we have seen similar applications before, and our research team says that MovieDea is similar to MovieWizard and Lights Off applications. These programs maintain that they can dim out the background when you load an online video and make the impression that you are watching a video in a movie theatre. However, this kind of function is rather redundant because you can always just use the full view function without the need to squint into a small screen. Thus, MovieDea is obviously not that useful, and there is no need to keep it on your computer.
As far as the program’s distribution is concerned, we can say for sure that it comes bundled with freeware applications although it has an official website via moviedea.com. Disregarding whether the download button on the website works or not, it is very unlikely that users would stumble across adware homepages on their own (unless they get redirected there from some associated website). Not to mention that, more often than not, users do not know how MovieDea and similar applications enter their computers, so it is obvious that they download and install them with a number of other unwanted applications.
For example, if you often download programs from file-sharing websites, you might eventually install unwanted applications that could lead to sever computer security issues. We are not trying to say that MovieDea is a dangerous computer infection. In fact, it cannot even enter your system if you do not allow it to do so. The problem is that this application can be easily exploited by malevolent third parties, and inadvertently, the application could be used for corrupted content promotion and even malware distribution. You certainly cannot allow this to happen, so the sooner you delete MovieDea from your computer, the better.
You can uninstall the application via Control Panel, and it should be enough to get rid of all the elements related to MovieDea, but that is not the end. Since you have installed this application together with other freeware programs, you need to delete those other programs as well. Naturally, you may not know which programs could be potentially harmful, so the best way to find out is to scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner. If you think that you cannot remove all the potential threats on your own, you should invest in a legitimate antispyware application.
A licensed computer security program will help you protect your PC from various threats, and you will no longer have to worry that unreliable applications enter your system. If you experience any difficulties trying to remove MovieDea from your PC, do not hesitate to leave us a comment below.
