What is Dezipper?

From the first glimpse, Dezipper Toolbar might appear as a handy tool since it is promoted as a browser-bound archiving app that is supposed to zip and unzip compressed files. However, no one warns that it may initiate various annoying activities during people’s browsing.

As soon as it gets installed, your default homepage may be replaced with another default start page. According to our research, Dezipper Toolbar might set Ask Search as your homepage and also as a default search provider. Unfortunately, this toolbar might generate and deliver sponsored search results and maybe even pop-up ads. Sponsored search outcomes can lead users to questionable pages, so that is why computer security experts do not recommend to explore such pages. You can never be sure whether Dezipper redirects will make you land on a reputable or unsafe websites. Even the Dezipper’s Terms of Use claim that:

The MS Products may integrate, be integrated into, bundled, or be provided in connection with third-party services, feeds, and/or content. […] You hereby acknowledge and agree that by using an MS Product you may be exposed to Content that may be offensive, indecent or objectionable in your community. You agree to accept all risks associated with the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy or completeness of such Content. Under no circumstances will MS be liable in any way for any Content created by or originating with entities other than MS […].

However, that is not the last suspicious statements about this program. Take a look at this statement that we found in the software’s Privacy Policy:

We automatically collect information from your computer and/or device when you use the MS Services. This information may include your IP address, your browser type and language, access times, the keyword query, search query text, search results clicked, pages viewed, search history, the content of any undeleted cookies, software installed upon and/or devices connected to your computer and/or device, and the referring website address.

As you can see, this program collects information about you and your activities on the Internet. Think about it – do you really want to share such data with suspicious sources?

How is Dezipper app spread?

Dezipper Toolbar is a legitimate application that has been installed by many PC users. Unfortunately, the majority of them complain that they have installed the app without realizing that. Why?

It can be downloaded via the official website or software packages. However, although many people believe that they are tricked to install the software together with the programs that they actually want, it is not a deceptive distribution technique because all information about promoted and attached programs is provided in the installation setup. However, some people miss these statements because they do not read Terms of Use or Privacy Policy documents. You need to be attentive when installing software to your PC! To prevent installing programs that you were not planning to install, you should:

  1. Read EULA, Privacy Policy of every freeware that you are going to install;
  2. Select Advanced/Custom installation option;
  3. Follow the entire process step-by-step and unmark checkboxes that contain ‘additional components,’ such as Dezipper Toolbar. If you do not want to change your browser’s main page, you should also unmark check boxes that suggest replacing your homepage.

However, if you have already spotted Dezipper Toolbar software on your computer, and if you have decided that you do not need it, you can remove it using the removal guidelines that we have prepared for you. You can find them on page 2.

Recently, the developer of this program contacted us asking us to remove this post from 2-spyware.com website. We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of MyScrapNook toolbar can detect it and help users to remove it from the system. As it is mentioned under each of download buttons, we ARE affiliated with these anti-malware programs, and while some of them are free, others can remove a virus only after purchasing them. These mentions fully fulfill each of the requirements of FTC.

Nevertheless, we have recently decided to make a revision of this and other posts that are related to this developer. We claim that all of them are described properly.
