Our malware analysts have discovered that SimpleFiles is practically identical to YourFile Downloader. This is another download manager which we identify as a PUP and which we recommend having deleted from the operating system. Both of these applications have official installers; however, both of them may come packaged with other PUPs, adware, and other unreliable software. Once installed, SimpleFiles is run with the help of SFUpdater.exe, SimpleFiles.exe, and other files. If you delete these files, the PUP will be disabled for good. We do recommend that you remove the suspicious application because it may enable unreliable downloads. Furthermore, it may promote third-party links via the displayed banners. Do not click on any ads, especially if automatic malware removal software is not installed to guard you.
Some computer users may remove SimpleFiles, and others will need to install automatic malware removal software. If additional unreliable programs are active on the PC, and some remaining files continue running after you perform the manual removal using the instructions below, you certainly should install a legitimate malware remover. Choose a trustworthy, up-to-date tool, and you will not need to trouble yourself with the removal of any other PUPs or more dangerous threats.
