I wrote this article to help you remove ConvertDocsOnline Virus. This ConvertDocsOnline Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

ConvertDocsOnline is a malicious toolbar. If it appears on your browser, know that you are infected with a cyber parasite. ConvertDocsOnline falls under the umbrella of potentially unwanted programs – PUPs – and it is very annoying. The infection enters your PC in silence, bringing along nothing but problems and unpleasantries. Do not keep it on board. Once you notice the shady toolbar, accept the fact your machine harbors a parasite and start looking for a way out.

Trust us, you do not want to give this pest more time on board. The longer it remains, the worse your situation gets. Eventually, it will even get out of control and make things unbearable. Do not sit idly by waiting for this scenario to unfold. Take action now. The PUP is not that hard to tackle IF you act promptly. Yet, if you let it get out of hand, it will be much harder for you to deal with it. So, do no procrastinate. As soon as the ConvertDocsOnline toolbar appears, find the nasty PUP and remove it. Once you do, ConvertDocsOnline will disappear as well. If you don’t, on the other hand, you will regret it sooner than you expect.

The nasty PUP replaces your homepage and search engine without any permission of yours. It takes control over your browsers, focusing them to serve its malicious purposes. Needless to say, these purposes involve money. The crooks behind the PUP are taking advantage of the pay-per-click mechanism to make money. They use the PUP as well. The program generates tons and tons of commercials which if you click on, hackers make profits. At your expense. That’s why you are drowning in a sea of advertisements. Coupons, deals, offers, pop-ups, video ads and pretty much any other type of ad you can think of, cover your screen on daily basis. Even the pages which used to be ad-free are now heavy on banners.

The ConvertDocsOnline Virus

Avoid everything you see. Do not support cybercriminals` business. More importantly, don’t put yourself at risk. The links this PUP generates are unreliable. A single click on the wrong ad (and there are many of those) and you automatically download more malware. Bear in mind that your computer is already underperforming due to ConvertDocsOnline. Its speed is slow, it crashes and reboots, your browsers freeze, apps take forever to load, etc. Even your Internet connection may become unstable. And all of this due to this single infection. Imagine the consequences of having five or ten more pests on board. Don’t take such risk. Remove the PUP ASAP and everything will get back to normal. No more ads and no more redirects to suspicious sites. All you have to do is follow our removal guide at the end of this article.

How did you get infected? ConvertDocsOnline used to have an official download but it was removed after complaints started pouring. Yet, there are still websites which promote the program so it is possible that you have downloaded the infections yourself. Accidentally or on purpose, it doesn’t matter. You may have downloaded it. But ConvertDocsOnline also uses the usual stealthy tactics to get on board. We are talking spam messages, malicious torrents, corrupted pages, freeware/shareware bundles, third-party ads, fake program updates, etc. Always be on the alert. A single moment of distraction could cost you your safety. Do your due diligence. Carelessness leads to infections. Caution keeps them away.
