FileViewPro is promoted as a file opener, viewer and editor tool that opens, views and edits documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. You can view, edit, and share your photos, play music, watch videos, and open common files.

The program is offered as a free trial for download and a 1-year subscription for $39.95 USD. It can be downloaded from the publisher’s website and found on other locations on the web. One website we saw that was promoting FileViewPro used deceptive and dishonest “malware removal guides” to trick victims into downloading the program.

This program is a proven threat and it should be removed from your computer. Other programs by the same publisher also have bad online reputations and are known to be harmful. Internet browsers such as Google Chrome might restrict the program from downloading onto your computer because they say that it can harm your computer.
