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,, 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.
