removal by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Adware

Clipconverter.cc is the unwanted program that claims to offer online services of converting YouTube videos 

Clipconverter.cc

Clipconverter.cc is the adware program that allows converting YouTube videos in other audio or video formats, but it causes unwanted behavior on the machine. This website redirects users to other suspicious sites and creates spam messages, pop-up ads and delivers other commercial content. Clipconverter.cc suggests subscribing to notifications from the website and interaction with that pop-up can cause direct desktop notifications and similar content that fills up your screen. This is a potentially unwanted program that delivers all those advertisements to generate pay-per-click revenue and monetize[1] every view on associated sites like Dolohen.com. This intrusive behavior significantly affects the speed of your device and interrupts browsing online or can even cause freezes on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or other browsers.

Name Clipconverter.cc
Type Adware, push notifications virus
Category Potentially unwanted program[2]
Symptoms Delivers advertisements, causes redirects, injects commercial banners to other sites, decreases the speed of the system and diminishes the time online
Distribution Deceptive websites, insecure installations of freeware
Possible damage Tracks data about users' browsing habits, infects the system with other possibly malicious programs, makes devices running slow
Removal tips Get anti-malware tool like Reimage and scan the system to remove Clipconverter.cc and other threats

Users complain about Clipconverter.cc virus because although the site offers useful features like converting and editing videos, it causes suspicious advertisements that get displayed on the screen. Using this tool constantly leads to adware infection and more intrusive content.

Clipconverter.cc can install other contents to your machine, including tools, programs or browser extensions.[3] This is one of the more annoying and frustrating features of these PUPs. However, relation to advertisers and commercial content creators means that visiting pages you get redirected to, clicking on pop-up ads leads to data tracking.

As many experts[4] note, visiting questionable pages, using tools and services like Clipconverter.cc lead to privacy issues related to data tracking and collecting. PUPs can access information about the user that includes online browsing habits, location, IP address, most viewed items, and pages.

This privacy issue relating to third-party advertisers is confirmed on the Clipconverter.cc website:

We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.

Remember that Clipconverter.cc is not a legitimate website that could offer official software, safe downloads and install secure or useful tools. These programs are created to scam people into purchasing questionable programs and visiting sites.

You should remove Clipconverter.cc and avoid using similar tools or online services in general. However, there is a need to scan the machine thoroughly when you need to eliminate associated files, programs or browser content. For this purpose researchers created antivirus programs and tools.

So since Clipconverter.cc removal requires anti-malware tools, get one and check the machine entirely. Programs like Reimage can indicate all issues with your computer, including malicious programs or corrupted files. Then you can also delete intrusive applications from the system entirely.

Clipconverter.cc virus
Clipconverter.cc is the push notifications virus that seems legitimate and useful because of the video converter functions offered on the website.

Third-party installation setups hide additional PUPs

Software bundling is the primary technique used to deliver such programs to users during insecure freeware installations. Freeware and unwanted applications get packed together and get automatically installed on the device without additional notification when the user chooses Quick or Default options.

Installing any free program like video converters and browser cracks or optimization tools from questionable pages can lead to the additional installation of the potentially unwanted program. However, choosing Advanced or Custom options allows to de-select additional programs. This way you can avoid unwanted installations every time you install any programs on the PC.

Delete all programs associated with Clipconverter.cc by cleaning the system fully

Clipconverter.cc removal requires proper anti-malware tools because this is the type of cyber threat that can install other browser extensions, tools or programs without users' knowledge or even alter registry entries and startup preferences.

You should use the anti-malware program and then scan the system to remove Clipconverter.cc alongside other similar PUPs. You cannot find all associated files and programs by yourself, so automatic scan does that for you.
