What is QuickShare.exe?

QuickShare.exe is an application that simplifies the process of online sharing. For example, if you want to share an image you just need to place the pointer over the image and choose the icon of the desired network when the quick bar appears. Unfortunately, it does more than that. QuickShare.exe has been classified as adware/trojan by more than 20 anti-virus scanners. Furthermore, this application installs additional components to protect itself from being removed. The main protection component is classified as malware too: Trojan.Win32.SProtector.AMN. When installed, will start automatically when Windows starts. Since the authors of this application included additional code that delivers the ads, you will probably see advertisements every fine or ten minutes based on your viewing habits. QuickShare is often included automatically without you knowing it when you download from certain download websites and free applications. It may also change the default search engine in your web browser's built-in search box and he default home page. I recommend you to remove QuickShare.exe from your computer. You should scan your computer with recommended anti-malware software as well.
