The same as PUP.Optional.ProductSetup.A, PUP.Optional.MindSpark.A is deemed as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that performs malicious actions once installed on the target computer. Due to lack of notification during the install process, computer users may optionally install this PUP together with certain third-party freeware without user's knowledge.
As soon as PUP.Optional.MindSpark.A gets installed on the target computer, it may alert your browser default settings, such as changing the homepage and search engine. Also, it adds itself as an extension, add-on or plug-in on your browser in different names. This makes its installation more difficult.
Even worse, PUP.Optional.MindSpark.A plants massive ads on your browser to help its developers and sponsors get revenues from online users. Asides from giving you many annoyances, those ads offered by this PUP can reduce your system security by dropping other computer infections on your computer. In the meantime, PUP.Optional.MindSpark.A drags down the running speed of your computer as it often runs in background to take up the system resources.
As a result, you are highly advised to remove PUP.Optional.MindSpark.A and its components from the infected computer once it is found.
