In fact, we believe it is best to remove DNS Unlocker from your operating system. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. It is not enough to uninstall this adware to have it deleted from your PC completely. Continue reading to learn what steps you need to take to eliminate DNS Unlocker.

The clandestine DNS Unlocker is not the only infection of its kind. In fact, this advertisement-supported program has at least one clone, DNS Keeper.

Of course, most users install this kind of software without thinking about the risks involved. In fact, most acquire this program bundled with other threats that also require removal. Even though the ad-supported program is available at vidcreek.tv, it was also found traveling with malicious installers. If you need help finding the programs that require removal, we strongly recommend installing a malware scanner. If you do not use this tool, detecting unreliable programs might be very difficult.

Once installed, DNS Unlocker immediately starts injecting ads and pop-ups. These might appear randomly or after highlighting words. According to our research, the ads injected by this program might show up with random-looking tags, such as “Ads by FlashMall” or “Ads by CloudScout.” In fact, DNS Unlocker was created using the CloudScout (also known as CloudGuard) engine, which is why the tag is not at all random. Of course, this does not change the fact that clicking on these advertisements can be dangerous. If you interact with these ads, you could expose yourself to virtual scams and malware installers. The bottom line is: If you do not want to have to delete malicious programs, you need to remove the programs that might open up security backdoors that could be used by malware distributors.
