The website www.appround .biz or www.appround .net claims that their software can prevent your computer from crashing, speed up your computer, protect your privacy, speed up memory and disk performace. But, after downloading their software and scanning it for malicious programs, I found two adwares.
Currently, please do not download and install any software from www.appround .biz or www.appround .net.
This is how www.appround .biz or appround .net looks:
The following softwares were downloaded from www.appround .biz (Performersoft LLC) and both contain adwares:
PCPerformerSetup.exe and BestCodecsPack.exe
Both files contain the following adwares (anti-virus software ESET reported both adwares):
1: Comodo ApplicUnwnt.Win32.AdWare.IBrain.C
2: ESET-NOD32 a variant of Win32/InstallBrain.B 20120814
These files were scan at websites https://www.virustotal.com and http://virusscan.jotti.org.
Please see the malware scan results below:
