Youtube Accelerator Helper is a potentially unwanted application that might lure users into downloading it by the statement that it helps users to load YouTube videos faster. In fact, the application does not do that in a manner that you would think. It loads videos from YouTube with lower video quality. Because of this dubious advertisement and activity we strongly recommend you to remove Youtube Accelerator Helper from your PC.
Youtube Accelerator Helper is published by a shady company called Goobzo LTD. This particular publisher is known for spreading applications like iWebar, Ytdonwloader Deals, SpeedUpMyComputer. All of these applications are dubious to say the least; therefore, products from Goobzo LTD should not be trusted entirely and if found present on your PC they should be removed.
Often applications like Youtube Accelerator Helper are distributed via bundled software. Although a direct download is available at the official website, numerous users claim that the application infiltrated their system without their knowledge. It is probably because users tend to skim trough the installation process. While installing any software, you should pay extra attention and read all the information that is presented to you on the setup wizard screen. In order to reduce the risk of getting infected via bundled software, you should run a professional antimalware tool on your system at all times because it is capable of detecting bogus installers.
Once Youtube Accelerator Helper installs onto your operating system you agree with the terms of the application that state that you might be presented with commercial adverts within your browser. Since Youtube Accelerator Helper is free of charge, these adverts are the main way that the publishers of the application make money. Unfortunately, they have not reviewed the third party links that they provide you with; therefore, it is likely that you might be presented with ads containing redirect links to questionable, or worse, corrupted websites. In order to reduce the risk of exposing your PC to dubious websites, it is recommended to remove Youtube Accelerator Helper as soon as possible.
Furthermore, what was discussed earlier, Youtube Accelerator Helper comes bundled with an add-on called Shopper-Pro. It can be avoided by un-checking a box within the installation wizard that disables the installation of this add-on. The add-on is the cause why your default home page and search engine are altered to search.net. In order to restore the setting of your browsers, you must remove Youtube Accelerator Helper altogether.
Although Youtube Accelerator Helper is not malicious and aggressive we still recommend you to remove it as it could serve as a gateway to further virtual threats. Removal is relatively simple, and you should not have any problems. If you want to make sure that your system is entirely clean and secure we suggest using a trustworthy antimalware tool.
