Symptoms

That is a spyware virus, a type of malicious software whose main purpose is to steal information off your PC. This can include all types of sensitive data such as passwords, online banking credentials, personal identification information, and more.

The virus may also attempt to change hidden settings on your computer, hijack your browser, monitor your internet activities, and change system files secretly without your knowledge.

Most commonly, spyware is designed to avoid detection, so often you may not even know you have an infection. In many cases you'll notice a PC running slower than usual or strange programs running in the background. This is one of those strange programs.

It is highly recommended that you remove all traces of the virus from your computer as well as any other filenames and processes it may be disguised as. The longer they stay hidden on your machine, the more information they can steal from you.

Infection Causes

There are many ways your computer could have become infected with a virus. By far, the most common cause of infection is through the use of browser exploits. The scary part about this is that your PC can become infected by doing nothing more than visiting a compromised website.

In addition to browser exploits, many users become infected from deceptive banner and pop-up ads that disguise themselves as Windows updates or notifications. Once you download their software, which appears innocent, a trojan is installed, allowing the makers to install other software onto your PC.

Resolution

We strongly advise against attempting to remove the spyware manually. Doing so could take several hours, do more harm than good, and end up not even fully removing the infection. You may find that you spend all this time removing the virus, only for it to reinstall itself as soon as you reboot your computer.

Also, since your PC has already been compromised, there is a very good chance you have other viruses you don't even know about. These things are constantly evolving every day, becoming more and more advanced to avoid detection and removal.

The most recommended solution, and quite possibly the only true solution, is to use a reliable software application that can quickly detect and remove all spyware viruses (and any other hidden threats that may be on your PC).

Programs such as SpyHunter run a variety of troubleshooting and diagnostic tests on your computer in order to detect almost all known PC threats and errors. In addition, SpyHunter comes with Scheduled Scans and their System Guard feature that integrates several protection elements to automatically block malicious processes from ever executing and running on your system in the first place.

How to Remove the Spyware Virus

Viruses these day can be very tricky to uninstall. Oftentimes they prevent you from running any type of tool that will remove them. Because of this, you may need to take a couple extra steps in order to get the job done.

Note: These steps must be done on the infected computer and in the order shown below.

  1. Save SpyHunter-Installer.exe on your computer.
  2. Run the setup program and follow the installation steps until setup is complete.
  3. If SpyHunter does not automatically start, click the icon on your desktop or Start Menu to open it.
  4. Allow the program to scan, detect, and remove all threats from your PC.

Notice: If you are using Internet Explorer and the spyware virus is preventing you from downloading SpyHunter, try switching browsers to Firefox or Chrome instead.
