Hprewriter2 is a potentially unwanted program that may lead to the display of random advertisements or misleading site redirects. Hprewriter2 may load when installing freeware programs by default where opening up your web browser could automatically display a new home page that proves to have questionable content.

Use of any sponsored content or advertisements generated through or by Hprewriter2 could eventually lead to issues where your system downloads malicious files or applications. Associated with questionable browser plugins or add-on components, Hprewriter2 is sometimes overlooked and allowed to run on an affected computer for long periods of time. Removal of Hprewriter2 is essential to prevent any unwanted site redirects, which can be done with the proper removal resources.
