If you visit Etype’s official homepage – etype.com, you will learn that the application is advertised as an online multi-language dictionary. In addition to this, the program is also supposed to be capable of auto-completing users’ sentences. The idea behind the latter option is to provide faster typing service. Moreover, if you use Etype, your texts will be free of spelling mistakes as the program will help you to avoid them. Nevertheless, no matter how useful the application may seem to you, virtual security experts do not advise keeping Etype on the system because it is related to various security risks.
As we already mentioned, the application has an official website where it can be downloaded from. However, Etype may also be acquired from a number of third-party websites distributing software. In both cases Etype is installed willingly by users. Please note that the application will not arrive on your system alone. There will be additional programs offered for installation, such as AVG Safeguard. It is important to remember that you can avoid such programs by unticking the setup option during the installation process.
The main reason why it is not a good idea to keep Etype on your PC is the suspicious programs it is associated with. For example, the previously mentioned AVG Safeguard toolbar that automatically replaces the default search engine and homepage with mysearch.avg.com on all the main web browsers – Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Moreover, there is a process file associated with Etype called Izma.exe. This file is considered to be malware downloader and is usually found on systems infected with malware. It may appear on your computer if you have downloaded Etype from a third-party website as their installers will most probably be bundled. To avoid any security-related issues, it would be best to remove Etype as soon as possible.
