Findizer is a potentially unwanted program that will not do anything good. Also, it has been found that it enters computers without a user’s consent. As research has shown, it usually enters computers bundled with other applications. For example, it might come with an ad-supported program. Adware does not hide itself, so you will notice the following symptoms if it really enters the computer: you will see banners on various websites you open, browser tabs with ads appear offering to install a particular application or fake updates, and, finally, your browser will crash and freeze very often. Delete Findizer together with unreliable software that has been installed on your computer alongside. We will give two pieces of advice for you regarding the Findizer removal in the last paragraph.
Findizer and a bunch of other unreliable programs enter computers using the bundling method. Software bundles might be promoted on untrustworthy third-party websites, P2P web pages, etc. Therefore, a user who wants to prevent unwanted software from entering his/her computer should not download software from questionable web pages. What we recommend for you too is to opt for the custom installation and deselect unknown software.
