What is Content Explorer?
Content Explorer is classified as an intrusive Trojan infection. This malicious parasite can enter your PC without your notice. It uses various tricks in order to do so. The threat may infiltrate your system after you click on a corrupted link or a fake ad. It also spreads through spam email attachments and bundled software hosted on unreliable websites.
As soon as it gets access to your system, it modifies your startup settings, which allows it to get launched automatically every time you turn on your computer. It also takes other malicious actions like altering your system configurations, Windows registry, and more. Needless to say, you should terminate Content Explorer as soon as you realize that your PC has been infected.
What does Content Explorer do?
Content Explorer comes with a variety of disturbing symptoms. It will not take you long to realize that something is wrong with your computer. The Trojan will cause certain programs to become unresponsive or deny access to them altogether. It can block executable files, so you will not be able to launch some of your applications. The infection will also slow down your system performance and make it crash or freeze for no apparent reason. You should also keep in mind that other malicious software may be dropped onto your PC as well. Needless to say, that will cause even more harm to your system. That is why, you should not delay Content Explorer removal.
Another reason why you should terminate Content Explorer as soon as possible is because it is known to steal personal data. It may collect such private information as your logins, passwords, credit card details, etc. and send it to a remote server. If your personal details fall into the wrong hands, you may suffer serious consequences including financial losses or identity theft.
