Do you know what VAFCompressor is?
Have you any doubts that VAFCompressor acts not in a way a reliable application should? You notice some strange things with your computer after the installation of this file compressor? If so, you have landed yourself on the right page as there you will find the necessary information that will help you decide whether to keep this application on your device further or not. The decision may not be the hardest you have ever taken. VAFCompressor is an entirely untrustworthy potentially unwanted application that will bring you no benefits, only troubles. We have tested the program in our laboratory and think that anyone caring about his/her virtual safety should delete this application.
During our research, we have found that VAFCompressor is installed by the DomaIQ install manager. The latter is responsible for installing many adware applications, including SaveNewAppz and ExstraSavings. It is not beyond possible that VAF Compressor already brought various adware programs to your system. What is for sure is that this file compressor tries to install Babylon Toolbar, Claro Toolbar, and some more toolbars that offer very questionable benefits. Ignore all those additional programs promoted by VAFCompressor.VAFCompressor screenshot

Ok, you can ask us why you should eliminate the file compressor from your system. Maybe it is even working properly. The reason is that this application shows you annoying advertisements. They may “include, without limitation, content, offers for products or services, data, links, articles, graphic or video messages, text, software, music, sound, graphics or other materials or services.” We took this quote from the VAFCompressor’s Terms & Conditions. Do you really want to encounter all these advertisements on a regular basis? Besides, those ads may be generated by unreliable third parties that this file compressor can be associated with.
There are some more things about VAFCompressor we need to tell you. First of all, this application sometimes hides its arrival to your system and may be found bundled with free software.

If you have suddenly encountered strangely looking search results, please note that VAFCompressor can be the one responsible for this.
