Do you know what HolaInput is?
The description of HolaInput on its official web page deskick.com sounds very appealing. It is said that this application will enable users to type texts in English in a fast and convenient way. In addition, the application should help users type without any mistakes. Even though this software seems to be really trustworthy, our specialists do not think that the application can be fully trusted because it is known to be a potentially unwanted application (PUP). On top of that, it seems that it does not work as it should. If you have already noticed that HolaInput is not that beneficial too, you can remove it from your system rather easily. You should also do that if you have not downloaded this program yourself, but still see that this piece of software is installed on the system. More information on the removal of this potentially unwanted program will be provided for you in this article.
Even though HolaInput looks quite a simple program, it has been noticed that it will not only add its main folder in %PROGRAMFILES% (%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%), %APPDATA%, and ALLUSERPROFILE%, but will also create a file HolaInput.ime in %WINDIR%, which is known to be the main Windows directory. Last but not least, the application will create a Value HolaInput in HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run in order to be able to launch automatically with Windows and run in the background. Finally, HolaInput will also set search.holainput.com on Google Chrome. Actually, users agree with this modification themselves, so we cannot call HolaInput a browser hijacker. To be honest, users are tricked into agreeing with the changes. It has been noticed that they cannot complete the installation of HolaInput if they leave the “Set search.holainput.com as your homepage in Chrome” checkbox unmarked. This is one of the reasons why this program is classified as a potentially unwanted program.HolaInput screenshot
