Do you know what DownQuick is?
DownQuick is a potentially unwanted program that might appear on your system without permission even if it can be downloaded from its official website freedownquick.com. Many users download this program themselves because it says that it will enable users to organize their downloads very easily. In addition, this program claims that it is very fast, free to use, and free of viruses. It seems that DownQuick will act as it says it will do, but, unfortunately, it is still not a fully reliable application. Our specialists have tested this program and found that it is a potentially unwanted program. In other words, it might also act in an unwanted way. If you ever notice anything suspicious about DownQuick, you can stop all its activities by deleting this program from the system.
Even though DownQuick promises to act in a beneficial way, it is known that it might do other activities which you might not like too. For example, it has been noticed that this potentially unwanted application shows advertisements inside the software. In some cases, New Tab pages with ads might be opened for you automatically when you surf the web too. It is not advisable to click on any ads you see on your screen because you might cause harm to your computer very quickly. Of course, we cannot say that this will happen every time you click on the advertisement, but there is a possibility that you will click on the ad made by cyber criminals too. In such a case, users usually end up on corrupted websites and thus infect their systems with malicious software.DownQuick screenshot
