TrimModule has been classified as an adware helper that could pose a serious threat to your system’s security. Of course, you should remove the program once you’ve noticed its presence, but many users do not, since the program runs in the background. The only purpose of TrimModule is to support adware applications associated with it, which should be a major concern for users, because, like adware helpers, adware applications are also considered to be hazardous infections. Therefore, you should remove TrimModule and all adware applications associated with it by using our manual removal guide. But we have an obligation to provide you with the most information about this infection possible, so please keep reading if you’d like to know more.
It is very difficult to say where TrimModule comes from, as there is no information about its developer. Nevertheless, the application is known to be bundled with malicious apps such as Unideals, UniSales, YoutubeAdBlocker, and so on. These applications, including TrimModule, are usually bundled in InstallRex installers, which is quite a popular installer for malicious applications. Software bundles containing the adware helper can only be downloaded from freeware distribution sites that are obliged to distribute infections, because they get paid for doing so by the developers.
You should remove TrimModule because it supports all kinds of adware applications that you really wouldn’t want to have. The helper protects and stores the adware’s information, such as settings, files, registry keys, and so on. Furthermore, the program can update and even reinstall deleted infections that have been installed with the aforementioned IntallRex installers.
Adware applications are dangerous, as they feature low grade advertisements that are often used by cyber criminals to infect your computer with malware and to take control of it, lock it, encrypt various documents, and so on. Perhaps more alarming is the fact that cyber criminals using adware -- and, by extension, adware helpers -- can infect your computer with malware in order to record personally sensitive information. It means that cyber criminals could steal your online banking credentials, logins, passwords, and so on.
In conclusion, TrimModule is an adware helper that indeed poses a serious threat to your system's security. It supports adware programs by protecting their information and by updating and, in some cases, even reinstalling deleted adware. Cyber criminals might use adware as a means of infecting computers with malware that could be used for illicit activities. Therefore we recommend that you remove TrimModule by using our manual removal guide or getting a reliable malware scanner such as SpyHunter.
