What is Zip Enhancer?

Zip Enhancer is a useful app that allows to zip and unzip files. Or, at least, it pretends to be so. In fact, it begins malicious activity typical for any other adware after getting installed. It installs add-ons to your browser and adjusts registry entries in order to launch with the system start and generate advertisement on web pages. The advertisements usually are of a commercial type and show tempting offers, encouraging the user to click on the ad to see the details. These ads are projected to delude the user and make him visit promoting pages. In addition, the ads are so attractive because they are based on the user’s own preferences that Zip Enhancer has collected and analyzed from his/her browser history. As far as this application doesn’t fulfill it promises and present the useful features, we suggest user should remove Zip Enhancer ASAP.

How Zip Enhancer gets on your PC?

Adware applications use the same methods of intrusion: through spam emails, via phishing sites and bundled with other software. Zip Enhancer is not an exception. Some users got the adware after opening suspicious emails from unknown senders or after misguided visiting malicious websites. But the most frequent way of infecting is inserting Zip Enhancer into the side installers. Not many users check the steps of installation putting their trust into the automatized process. However, we strongly recommend to control the installation and always decline the additional software that looks suspicious.
