Do you know what Video Box is?
Video Box is an application that should work in an extremely beneficial way. More specifically, it promises to allow users to download videos from hundreds of websites for free. It is compatible with YouTube, Dailymotion, Ntv.ru, NYTimes, Nhl.com, Newstube, Nextmovie.com, and other popular pages. There are a number of users who prefer to watch videos offline, so it is not at all surprising that Video Box has quickly become quite a popular application. Even though it might seem to be a perfect program, the truth is that it is not. Actually, it has even been classified as a potentially unwanted application by many specialists. We are sure you will have your own opinion about this program after reading this article, so go to read what our team of specialists has discovered about Video Box. If it happens that you no longer wish to have it installed after getting more knowledge about it and how it works, the information provided in the last paragraph will help you to delete Video Box fully.
Video Box is quite a useful application because users can get videos they want from a number of different websites by simply pasting the URL of the video in the box of Video Box and clicking on the Search button. All these videos will be presented in several different formats, so users could download only the version they prefer. Video Box might really seem to be a decent and beneficial application, but the truth is that it has drawbacks too. The most noticeable one is the presence of advertisements. Users report that ads appear at the lower part of the program window when videos are being downloaded on the computer. They might promote particular products, services, and even web pages. Users also often notice commercials promoting pages with the content for adults. Adult websites are the sources of malicious software, and hundreds of bad programs that can cause serious harm are promoted via them, so clicking on ads promoting such websites and then visiting them is not recommended. Actually, it would be best to ignore them all because these commercial ads placed on Video Box are capable of redirecting users to corrupted pages no matter what they advertise. Anything, including malware, might be found on these websites. On top of that, cyber criminals might try to steal details about users on these pages, for example, you will be asked to take a survey and then provide your name, surname, and other information for a chance to win an expensive item. The submitted information might then be sold to bad people. As can be seen, problems associated with the presence of advertisements on Video Box might arise, so you should think twice before letting this potentially unwanted program stay installed.Video Box screenshot

Video-box.org is the official website of Video Box, but, as research has shown, not all the users get it from its official website. Judging from the complaints users make, this application for downloading videos might be spread in a different way too. As has already been observed by our malware analysts, it travels in software bundles the most frequently. Of course, it does not travel alone in these bundles. In most cases, all kinds of free applications travel together with Video Box too. They could have already been installed on your PC if you see Video Box installed and cannot remember downloading it yourself. Software that comes together with this tool for video downloading should be erased if it has been installed alongside without direct permission. It is especially true if a user finds it useless because this software will only use PC resources and occupy space.
