Video Box is an online video downloader promoted on video-box.org. It allows users to download all kinds of videos they like from a number of different popular websites, including YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, ARD, Bandcamp, BBC, Bloomberg, NBC, NBA, Tumblr, ZDFChannel, YouJizz, and others. This can be done in a very simple way. All users need to do is to copy the link of the video they wish to download, paste it in the download box on Video Box, and click Search. As can be seen, users can get videos they like quickly and quite easily, which explains why video downloaders, including Video Box, are so popular among computer users these days. Be aware that not all the tools for downloading videos are fully reliable. Sadly, Video Box is one of these tools that cannot be trusted fully even though it works the way it promises to. This application is, of course, not a malicious program, but, according to researchers working at 411-spyware.com, it still cannot be trusted fully because it is known to be a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. They do not say that you should go to remove Video Box the moment you discover it installed on the computer, but they just want to let you know that more trustworthy software for downloading videos exists, so it would be smart to use it instead of Video Box. Read what researchers have to say about this potentially unwanted program in this article and make a decision determining the destiny of Video Box yourself. In case you decide to remove it from your computer, you are welcome to use our manual removal instructions located below this report.
Video Box is an application that users usually find very beneficial. Specialists are not surprised at all after carrying out research about it that there are so many users who are against deleting it from their computers. It is because Video Box really allows users to download all kinds of videos from the web. Even though it works well, i.e. users can download videos from the web in several different formats, it still has one noticeable drawback. It has been found that it displays advertisements for users at the bottom of the program window. Anything, even adult websites, might be promoted there, meaning that those users who click on ads they see risk allowing undesirable software to enter their computers. They might be redirected to pages that are run by cyber criminals and only seek to steal personal details from users. In conclusion, clicking on ads shown by Video Box might be a dangerous activity resulting in security and privacy-related problems, so all these ads should be ignored completely. Users who fear that they would still accidentally click on them one day should go to delete Video Box completely. After getting rid of this program, a new trustworthy application for downloading videos could be downloaded and installed in the place of Video Box.
The finding that Video Box can come bundled with free software does not make this program fully reliable too. Researchers quickly found its official website, video-box.org, where it can be downloaded from, but users’ complaints regarding the secret entrance of this application encouraged them to continue their study. Now specialists know that Video Box might also travel in software bundles. Since the bundling method cannot be called a fair distribution method, Video Box has fallen into the category of potentially unwanted programs because of this too. Be more careful from now on if you often download freeware from P2P and similar pages because they might come with other, not necessarily fully trustworthy, applications. Users who want to be sure that undesirable software cannot find a way to their PCs should install security software on their computers too.
Video Box makes several changes on the computer so that it could work properly on it. It adds its folder in %PROGRAMFILES% (or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%) and several other directories and even creates two registry keys ([HKCU|HKLM]SOFTWARE\VideoBox and [HKCU]|HKLM]SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Video Box_is1). Luckily, you will not need to go to undo those modifications yourself because Video Box has a working uninstaller in Control Panel. We recommend following our step-by-step instructions if it is the first time you are going to delete an application yourself, but, do not worry, it will not be a hard job. Do not forget to take care of other untrustworthy applications which you might also have installed on your PC after the Video Box removal. The quickest and easiest way to take care of them all is to use an automatic malware remover.
