At times, downloading, installing and uninstalling several programs could lead you to a confusing and dangerous situation. When you’re on a hard drive cleaning spree, you might be wary of deleting an important OS file instead of a junk one. Using Task Manager also doesn’t serve the purpose. So what do you do when you come across a file with a weird name? So let me introduce you to WhatIsThatFile.com which helps give you
more details about that weird sounding file name.

What is that File?

This service will help you know about the thousands of files that reside on your hard drive and run with the OS-and the ones that stay dormant. If you search for these files in Google, you may not get the expected result-the engine is an algorithm, after all. Again, at times, your anti-spyware and antivirus programs may not be as secure as you think.

The possibility of malware files residing on computers are high for those who stay connected to the Web. Functioning like a mini-wikipedia sort of a database, the site allows you to edit information. In case you don’t find information about the files you’re looking for, then just submit its inclusion.
Being community driven, a 100 per cent guarantee of accurate information cannot be expected.

But the site keeps you updated about popular viruses, malware and Trojans. However, the home page could’ve been better if the Google ads weren’t placed right on the top and bottom—which may distract you. One can also contribute by checking the to-do list database and help users identify unknown files. A nice resource to clarify your doubts about certain files, add more knowledge about them and also keep your hard drive clean!
