Adware.QueryExplorer

Adware.QueryExplorer is a Trojan that roots itself on its victim’s PC without the knowledge of the user. Its objective is to collect info about the user’s browsing and search habits, and relay the info to a parent company without the permission of the consumer. This is especially distressing seeing that the consumer has no control over which information is collected, how it is stored or who is privy to it. What makes it worse is, that the user does not even know it is happening at all.

Adware.QueryExplorer injects itself into active processes running on the system, in a further attempt to gather more info about the PC owner and his system. It then connects to a remote computer system where to it sends the unknown date.

If you attempt to manually remove Adware.QueryExplorer, you will need to kill queryexplorer111.exe, queryexplorer115.exe, queryexplorer116.exe and queryexplorer117.exe, all known processes of Adware.QueryExplorer. If you are not confident to get rid of Adware.QueryExplorer on your own, then you will need to make use of properly functioning and fully updated security software which can permanently obliterate Adware.QueryExplorer and similar infections and future threats from your PC.
