What is Quicky Translator?

Quicky Translator (also searched for as the Quicky Translator virus or Quicky Translator Alert) is adware and a potentially unwanted program that displays a constant stream of fake Windows security alerts and internet browser alerts. The fake Quicky Translator alerts are designed to scare you into calling a tech support company that may want to obtain remote access to your computer. When infected, Quicky Translator will create a Windows service and startup that sets multiple timers for when an alert should be shown. Alerts may be constant and multiple may appear on your screen at the same time. Once the alerts are closed a new alert window will open.

At the end of the timers set by this adware, an application titled Quicky.exe will launch. The application will essentially display pop-up alerts on Windows desktop that cover the entire screen and prevent you performing simple computer tasks. This program will also configure your machine to use a Proxy Server like DNS Unlocker that injects javascript alerts into your browser with warnings that you are infected with malware and it will prevent you from using your browser or browsing web pages.
