What is YTDownloader?

YTDownloader (also known as YTDownloader and Converter) is a legitimate browser plug-in, which has been included to the category of potentially unwanted program and adware categories. Usually, it is presented by its developer Goobzo ltd as a program, which can be used for downloading videos from YouTube and watching them on phones, tablets or other devices. However, no matter that this program seems like a great application that can help you to find your favorite music files, it seems that it may also cause unwanted system changes that may lead you to several problems. The most obvious issue that it may cause on your web browsers (this application may affect each of web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other web browsers) is its commercial pop-up ads, in-text links, banner ads and similar commercial content, which may appear during your browsing. These ads typically announce about discounts, coupons, price comparisons and similar deals. Please, be very careful with them and don't click them because they may trick you into visiting unknown websites. No one can guarantee that these ads won't try to redirect you to unsafe or even malicious websites.

Besides, you can also see ytdownloader.exe and similar executables in your Task manager that are related to this browser add-on. As soon as it launches them, this program starts another questionable activity - tracking the user and collecting information related to his/hers browsing habits. This information is considered as non-personally identifiable, but we think that you should keep it for yourself. This and YTDownloader's ability to appear on computers without asking an appropriate permission has already made security experts to include this program to potentially unwanted programs category. If you want to avoid its ads, you should remove it from the system. This can be done with a help of SpyHunter

YTDownloader virus and its ads that are caused by its installation 

How can I download YTDownloader to my computer?

As we have mentioned, YTDownloader by Goobzo can be downloaded from the Internet just like any other program. However, it may also infiltrate it as an optional component of other software. In fact, adware-type programs and similar applications are actively promoted as optional components of such programs as download managers, PDF creators, video streaming software and similar freeware. These programs are always filled with various 'components' that may additionally initiate serious havoc on the system. That's why we highly recommend you to start monitoring installation of the freeware. For that, you should start selecting Custom or Advanced installation of the freeware. After doing so, you should uncheck all suspicious check marks that allow installation of such components as toolbars, browser add-ons and so on. No matter how it gets on the PC, it may easily modify your PC's system and then may start displaying various pop-up advertisements during your browsing sessions. Besides, it seems that this program may start monitoring your browsing habits and may also show unwanted banners, offers, and other ads during your browsing. If you are annoyed by them to death and you want to get rid of YTDownloader redirects to unknown places, please follow removal instructions that are given in the next page of this post.
