It is high time we discuss another adware application that has been plaguing computers and irritating their users all around the globe. The name of this vermin is PrintOnKey, an adware program that is both dangerous and aggressive. Therefore, our security analysts recommend that you remove this infection before it starts causing trouble, if it has not already. The application is deceptive. Many users do not even notice it because PrintOnKey does not function as a traditional browser extension. This article is dedicated to the safe removal of PrintOnKey, because it is a potential security risk that must be neutralized immediately.
As opposed to traditional adware applications, PrintOnKey functions as a background process, meaning that there is no indication of the application’s presence in the browser. The application has no user interface whatsoever, but you can find the clandestine infection running in the background by opening the Task Manager. Look for a process called printonkey.exe. If you find it, then there is no doubt that your computer has been infected with it, because it does not try to pass itself on as a Windows process like some other infections do.
PrintOnKey is a very annoying and irritating adware program. The ads it promotes cannot be overlooked, since they are so large and always in your face. You can distinguish PrintOnKey ads from other advertisements by looking at the edge of the pop-ups, coupons, and banners that it shows. You should find a label that reads “Ads by PrintOnKey.” Allegedly, you can compare prices of different online retailers, but we found this function to be broken.In any case, you should not trust the ads presented by PrintOnKey, because none of the online retailers are real partners of the developers of this program. Large companies have better things to do than play with small-time online ads that are managed by some shady malware developers.
You should be aware that the advertisements can be misleading or even fictitious. In this day and age, cyber criminals can create a website clone in order to trick users into exposing their banking credentials, so that criminals can steal their money. Or a user might simply transfer a sum of money to a private bank account, thinking that he had paid for a purchase.
PrintOnKey comes bundled with malicious software and potentially unwanted applications. malicious software bundles are comprised only of bad software that can harm your computer and your finances. Potentially unwanted applications are those that are nor bad nor good; recommend performing a scan of your computer using our featured antimalware program, called SpyHunter.
If you want to remove PrintOnKey, you can do it by using the aforementioned SpyHunter or you can do it manually by following the instructions below. The course of action is for you to decide, but, regardless of the removal method, you must get rid of PrintOnKey. Please do not neglect your cyber security, but rather embrace it.
