If you work with video files, you may need a program that can change their formats. Some sites allow the upload of just a few particularly chosen types of video files, so for some people the possibility to alter the extensions may be very useful. However, FullVideoConverter Pro is not the right application for the task because it is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). First of all, the performance of this software may be problematic: you may face various errors when you try to convert the files. Second and more important, FullVideoConverter Pro may interfere with the web clients in a negative way. After the installation of this PUP, you may notice an increased amount of commercial materials in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. These ads are of various kinds, most noticeable of which may be pop-ups, banners and targeted videos. In addition to them, you may see some underlined words that are hyperlinks. The negative aspects of the newly created ads may be several. They may annoy you with their intrusiveness because they may become an integral part of each of your surfing sessions. They also may disturb the quick and smooth operation of your web clients. What you may experience is increased time necessary to load the webpages. Sometimes there may be momentary freezes, especially if you open a few tabs at once or watch HD video streaming. Worst of all, the ads by FullVideoConverter Pro may not always be safe. Sometimes the ads by similar applications may lead to sites that promote unsafe content or deceive the users that they are infected to make them call bogus technicians for assistance. Since you cannot know if this adware will take you to newly established e-commerce platforms or corrupt pages, you should avoid all ads.
