ItsMyApp. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as ItsMyApp virus | Type: Malware

ItsMyApp is not a malicious infection or virus. Nevertheless, its presence on your computer reveals the fact that you have a potentially unwanted program (also known as PUP) installed on it. To be more precise, ItsMyApp is a directory that can be created by various adwares, potentially unwanted programs and other ad-supported applications once they enter computer. Usually, this folder is used to store back-up files and similar data. In this particular case, we discovered that this directory is closely related to a download manager, which is called EZDownloader, but we believe that there are tens of other apps that are related to it. If you noticed ItsMyApp virus on your PC, you should remove it with all potentially unwanted programs that are related to it.

How can ItsMyApp hijack my computer?

ItsMyApp may appear on your computer right after installing unfamiliar and questionable freeware. As we have mentioned before, it is possible to get this potentially unwanted intruder in a bundle with EZDownloader. However, there are hundreds of other freewares that can easily transmit ItsMyApp to your computer. That is why you should be very careful and closely check every single program that you want to install. Firstly, read end-user license agreement (EULA) section before any questionable installation. Secondly, don't be too hasty and avoid selecting 'quick', 'basic', or 'recommended' installation option for doubtful freewares. Instead, select 'advanced' or 'custom' installation method and closely follow the entire process. Finally, try to spot unwanted attachments (apps, toolbars, extensions, add-ons, plug-ins, games, etc.), unmark them and continue your installation.
