Do you know what Hawker is?
Hawker is an extremely buggy program that can slither into your operating system without permission. According to our research, this infection is most likely to enter computers via clandestine Trojans. Once a malicious Trojan enters your PC – which is usually done without permission as well – it can download other threats, and Hawker might be one of them. Unfortunately, it is just as difficult to remove this threat as it can be finding it. Of course, your virtual integrity depends on this, since, if you do not find malware, your virtual security could be jeopardized. If you do not want malicious software taking over, you have to delete Hawker right away, and we can show you how.
Even though Hawker does not need permission to step into your operating system, it is not entirely invisible. In fact, all you need to do is launch Task Manager and click the Processes tab to uncover this threat. "VersionControl.exe" is the name of the process that Hawker is represented by, and this is the process that you need to terminate. Although terminating a malicious process does not equate with the removal of the threat, you must terminate it to stop malicious advertisements from popping up. Our research team has found that Hawker can connect to the Internet without permission to communicate with remote adware servers. Unfamiliar adware servers might host malicious ads, which is the reason why removing Hawker is so important.Hawker screenshot

Needless to say, if you can, do so immediately, as this might help stop the irritating ads, at least for some time.
