AMCIS.DLL is a Browser Helper Object you should delete upon detection
AMCIS.DLL is a dynamic link library file that might contain a code designed to spy on users' online activities. This file usually needs to be loaded by executables or other files. However, some threats inject into the system, so it works as an independent component, for example, as a harmful web browser plugin or hidden system service.
In order to remove this file, you would have to clean your web browsers and uninstall all the unwanted extensions/add-ons/plugins from Internet Explorer. Additionally, other potentially unwanted programs installed on the Windows system might be responsible for this file's reappearance, so you should check your system well, preferable with anti-malware software.

In most cases, the file is responsible for all the harmful actions the pest takes. The main purpose of this file, in this case, is the gathering of various user-related data that might even contain personal information.

If the application or browser extension that is related to the file is not deleted properly, the DLL would be simply respawned next time you would reboot your computer or browser.
This is why you need to take care of proper AMCIS.DLL removal. While you can attempt to uninstall all suspicious programs manually, success is not guaranteed, especially if you are a less proficient user. Therefore, rely on automatic tools to do this job for you – we recommend using SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner.
Sometimes a presence of the file does not indicate that your computer is infected, as it might be a component of a legitimate application installed on Windows. If you delete this DLL manually, you might face difficulties with launching the associated program.
If you experience any type of system stability issues after you eliminate malware or adware, you should scan it with ReimageIntego – it would clean your web browsers automatically and replaced damaged Windows registries and other system files with brand new ones.
