Do you know what Note-Up is?
Note-Up may seem a nice little solution for business people who have many scheduled meetings and are afraid of forgetting some of them. This program is an event reminder that allows you to plan your meetings up to one year in the future. The application is quite easy to use, and it offers the possibility of sending reminders directly to your email. However, Note-Up is not a piece of software you should trust. This application is capable of downloading adware and even malware programs to your computer. Besides, it is usually spread by malicious software installers, and you might not even be aware of its presence. We classify this event reminder as a potentially unwanted program and speak for its removal.
During our research that we conducted in our internal laboratory, we have found that users often do not even notice how Note-Up enters their computers. This is because developers of this application put it in bundles with other freely distributed programs. Usually, people receive those programs when they launch file installers that are placed on p2p, torrent, and other file sharing websites. Those installers often masquerade as download buttons, and users are enticed by an offer to download new versions of media or flash players. However, those buttons turn out to be fake, and people get some suspicious applications on their systems.Note-Up screenshot

Getting your computer infected is not the price you should pay for using a free event reminder.
So, now is the right time to proceed towards the elimination of this potentially unwanted application. If you want to implement the process by yourself, then follow our short instructions. But we suggest that you use a trustworthy defensive program as you may be the unlucky owner of additional unwanted programs.

In non-techie terms:
Note-Up is an event reminder tool that some users may find useful. However, there are some suspicious things about this application. It hides its entry to your computer and thus is classified as a potentially unwanted program. In addition, it can install other unreliable programs on your device. Last but not least, this application does not prevent third parties from spying on you and gathering data on your Web browsing habits. We recommend that you remove Note-Up either manually or by using a legitimate antimalware scanner.
