1click downloader is a utility program that its creator claim to enable easy file-downloading activities with, as the product's name implies, a single click. While 1click downloader may be able to perform its marketed job to some extent, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have also noted signs that 1click downloader may not be as benevolent as 1click downloader pretends to be, such as unauthorized downloading activities that can interfere with normal computer usage, as well as attempts to resist its deletion (traits that are typical of adware and similar types of low-level malicious software). Alongside this poor reports of its functionality, 1click downloader is also promoted by a site with a suspicious history on the web, and while 1click downloader may not be as harmful as a virus or Trojan, you should exercise a high level of caution when interacting with 1click downloader or its website. If necessary, suitable anti-malware scanners can delete 1click downloader just like any other low-level PC threat, whereas normal removal methods (such as Control Panel) typically will fail.

1click downloader – Just One Click for a Downloading Nuisance

1click downloader claims to be an enabler of downloading activities, but many victims of 'accidental' installations claim that 1click downloader actually interfered with their downloads by attempting to download files without permission – sometimes repeatedly. Low-level PC threats like 1click downloader are often distributed as part of bundled packages with other products, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers rate this possibility as a particularly probable distribution strategy for 1click downloader, since many of its users have reported being unable to remember where they acquired 1click downloader in the first place. Accordingly, paying attention to text included in the full installation process for any program is useful for avoiding unwanted 'helpers' like 1click downloader, semi-malicious search toolbars and adware.

1click downloader has also been observed to utilize P2P downloading networks and may be distributed via them as well as using them for some of its downloads. Although there aren't guaranteed to be signs of a 1click downloader installation package on any individual peer-to-peer downloaded file, illegal software products (such as key generators) and mislabeled files for popular media are particularly prone to being compromised by various PC threats. You might also acquire 1click downloader deliberately from its website, 1clickdownloader.com or a general software database site. While SpywareRemove.com malware researchers haven't found indications that 1click downloader's website is directly hostile, its questionable history still makes 1click downloader a potential (albeit minor) risk to your PC.

Clicking Yourself Away from a 1click Downloader Dilemma

1click downloader's website has a history of enacting bribes for some positive review ratings on PC security websites, and this site has also been blocked by some PC security companies for its questionable practices and software. In light of this, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers suggest avoiding unnecessary contact with 1click downloader's company if you find your computer troubled by 1click downloader since the probability of its employees being useful is fairly low. If your PC does wind up with 1click downloader on it, chances are good that you'll need a little help, since 1click downloader does its best to resist all normal removal and deletion methods that would safely get rid of any benign type of software.

To ensure that all of 1click downloader's components are removed without causing harm to your OS, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts suggest scanning your computer entirely with high-quality anti-malware products. Safe Mode (which is available on all Windows computers) is the recommended environment for removing 1click downloader since it will minimize the possibility of 1click downloader or other PC threats interfering with the task.
