Is it safe to use Ultimate Streamers?

The answer is simple – downloading and using Ultimate Streamers is a risky deal. Therefore, you should better not fall for this tool. Although it may be represented in a very appealing manner, DO NOT fall into believing that blindly. Ultimate Streamers has been developed by ClientConnect Ltd. This company is already infamous due to the development and distribution of potentially unwanted programs, including Search Protect,, Ultimate Cloud, Ultimate Nes, and many other tools. According to the 2-spyware research team and other reputable security vendors, Ultimate Streamers should be laid under the categories of ‘browser hijacker’ and ‘potentially unwanted program’ (PUP). In other words, it means that this application is not malicious, but not safe to use at the same time. It does not exhibit malicious traits as virus/malware do, but, however, it may:

  • Cause system’s slowdowns;
  • Redirect web browsers to unsafe web pages;
  • Encourage installation of other unwanted/unsafe apps;
  • Display irritating/misleading pop-up ads during browsing;
  • Collect information about web browsing habits, etc.

Therefore, DO NOT use Ultimate Streamers virus if you want to keep your computer safe. If, however, it has slithered onto your computer without asking for your approval, our recommendation would be to check the entire system with Reimage Reimage Cleaner or another professional anti-malware because you have apparently downloaded a software package. We will speak about the distribution of this browser hijacker a bit later.
