Easy File Convert Promos is advertised as a program which converts documents, images, videos, audios to various formats. Although, it feeds users with various advertisements as well. Easy File Convert Promos is categorized as adware, apps of this type are called potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) because users often download and install them unknowingly. Also, quite often adware-type apps are capable of accessing and collecting various information.
Adware is a type of software that is designed to feed users with intrusive advertisements. Typically, adware serves ads in forms to banners, coupons, pop-ups, surveys, and so on. It is common that these ads cover contents of visited pages and, if clicked, open untrustworthy, potentially malicious pages or execute scripts designed to download and/or install unwanted applications. Moreover, apps of this type can be designed to collect browsing data like IP addresses, entered search queries, addresses of visited pages, geolocations, and other details of this kind. However, it is possible that such software may be designed to collect confidential information as well. As if it were not enough, its developers could sell gathered data to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who would misuse it to generate revenue in other ways. Software like Easy File Convert Promos can cause problems related to online privacy, browsing safety, some users may even become victims of identity theft. Therefore, this program should not be downloaded and installed. If it is already installed, then it should be uninstalled right away.

Best Classified Ads Promos, View Live News Promos and Maps & Directions Online Promos are the names of other programs that are classified as adware too. Typically, programs of this type do not deliver any features, improve browsing experience or other value and can cause various problems. As a rule, programs like Easy File Convert Promos are designed only to serve ads and/or record various information.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some advertisements can cause downloads and/or installations of unwanted applications by running certain scripts. However, it can happen only when users click them. More often such apps get downloaded and/or installed together with some other, regular software. To be more precise, when they are included in download and/or installation setups as additional offers. In most cases offers to download and/or install them can be found in setup's settings like "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual". However, not all users check and change those settings when they download and install programs. It means that users allow for PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed alongside with other software that they download and/or install intentionally.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It recommended to download software (and files) from official, trustworthy websites and via direct download links. Third party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites and other similar channels can be used to distribute unwanted applications. In some cases they are used to proliferate malware. Settings like "Advanced", "Custom" of any download or installation setup should be always checked and offers to download and/or install PUAs declined. Intrusive advertisements that are being shown on shady websites should not be clicked. Very often those ads open other untrustworthy pages or cause unwanted downloads, installations. If there is a reason to believe that some PUA is already installed on a browser, then we recommend to check the list of installed extensions, plug-ins or add-ons and remove unknown, suspicious entries as soon as possible. The same should be applied to software of this kind that is installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
