Mobogenie Description

Mobogenie Image 1Mobogenie is often mistakenly referred to as a threat. However, Mobogenie is a Potentially Unwanted Program. PUPs like Mobogenie may cause issues on an affected computer, such as hijacking the affected Web browser, tracking on computer users' activities or forcing computer users to view numerous advertisements. However, unlike other threats, PUPs are usually less difficult to remove than real threats and will rarely cause long term, destructive effects on affected computers. Mobogenie is often associated with a variety of other PUPs such as toolbars in the family and Quick Downloader. Mobogenie presents a threat to a computer and that Mobogenie should be removed immediately with the help of a reliable security program.

Mobogenie Haunts Your PC Appearing Out of Nowhere

Mobogenie is marketed as an easy way for computer users to transfer media from the mobile phones to their PC and back. However, Mobogenie is often installed automatically, leading many computer users to believe that Mobogenie is a threat. It is critical to know that PUPs like Mobogenie may cause numerous threat-like symptoms that make them nearly as irritating and disruptive as many threats.

Mobogenie is developed by Beijing Yang Fan Jing He Information Consulting Co. Once Mobogenie is installed, Mobogenie makes changes to the affected computer's settings, allowing Mobogenie to start up automatically as soon as Windows starts up. Mobogenie may also use the Windows Task Scheduler to ensure that Mobogenie starts up periodically. Mobogenie can connect to the Internet and may bypass the affected computer's Firewall. It is important to note that Mobogenie is particularly large compared to other PUPs. In most cases, Mobogenie includes about 35 files and is about 45 MB in size. This makes its complete removal somewhat more difficult than other PUPs since computer users may overlook one of Mobogenie's files during removal. Because of this, security researchers urge PC users to use of an updated and productive security tool to scan the affected computer completely after removing Mobogenie.
