Remove eTranslator

removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as eTranslator ads, Ads by eTranslator, eTranslator virus | Type: Adware

What is eTranslator?

eTranslator is yet another dubious application that we do not recommend using. It’s promoted as a user-friendly tool that claims to provide a high-quality translation service. However, this app is certainly not ‘user-friendly’. Contrary, it may cause various inconveniences on target computer and may even lead to privacy-related issues. It may be distributed via third-party download websites, such as download.com, cnet.com, softonic.com and so on. However, in most of the cases, it spreads bundled with various freewares and sharewares. This way, it may infiltrate random computers without being noticed. If it manages to infiltrate the computer this way, we highly recommend using Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego and removing this adware from the system right away. That’s because it’s main aim is to promote predetermined websites and boost traffic to them. That’s why eTranslator generates a ton of commercial advertisements, which usually inform about various deals, discounts, coupons, and similar things that are related to online shopping. No matter how appealing these offers may seem, we do not click any of the ‘Ads by eTranslator’ unless you are sure that they are linked to reliable websites. However, you should keep in mind that adwares are closely related to third parties that may try to spread other potentially unwanted or even malicious programs. Therefore, you should consider the fact that some of the eTranslator ads may be linked to unsafe websites. Even more, it may lead to privacy-related issues. That’s because this adware may install cookies and collect personally non-identifiable information related to people’s browsing activities. If you are not willing to disclose your search queries, websites visited, data entered in them, IP and email address, and similar information, you should take needed actions and remove eTranslator virus ASAP.

How can eTranslator hijack my computer?

You may start suspecting eTranslator virus to be hiding in your computer right after installing another freeware. That’s because after installing a free program you may start experiencing system slowdowns, annoying advertising, eTranslator redirects to unknown websites and similar inconveniences. Such situation may happen because this browser add-on spreads bundled with various freewares and sharewares as ‘optional download’. To prevent installing software bundles, you should start checking freewares more carefully and pay an appropriate amount of attention to their installation process. Always select Advanced or Custom mode for installing every single freeware and do not skip any notifications. Look for suspicious check boxes that contain various browser add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, and extensions set by default. You have to unmark ticks notifying your consent to install eTranslator and its clones, such as Deal2Dealit, IncludeMaker, Eppink, ShopShop and many others. If you accept any of these programs, then don’t be surprised to start receiving eTranslator ads and other commercial messages during your browsing or experiencing other inconveniences.

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
