Do you know what Quiknowledge is?
One of the newest advertising-supported programs that you might meet if you browse the web on a daily basis is Quiknowledge. This program claims to be a free search and translation utility; however, it is more likely that it is a simple advertising-supported program because you will be forced to notice various banners, text, pop-up, and video advertisements. They will appear on your screen without your permission and you will never know when this will happen. Thus, we believe that your browsing processes might be disrupted. The only way to stop all these ads is to erase Quiknowledge entirely from your system. You should know that changing the browser will not be helpful at all because this application is compatible with all of them.
You should be concerned about all these advertisements not only because they are really annoying, but also because they might expose you to different threats. Every time you click on them, you will be redirected to other websites that might be corrupted, which means that the possibility to infect your system with malicious software while browsing them is rather high. Thus, even though the program offers you the opportunity to highlight any phrase or word and then search and translate this information in a new window, you should definitely not admire this program too much because it might cause you more problems than you think.
