Vicious browser hijackers are capable of redirecting your page results and advertising various, fictitious online goods, for example, Codec-C. This is a completely bogus update of a fake video codec, behind which any type of malicious applications could be hidden. One of the most common programs camouflaged under the fictitious codec is Clickpotato adware that will infect your PC, cause serious Internet browser’s reconfigurations and will be used to slip even more dangerous applications into your computer. This truly cunning spyware is only one of the many infections that could be hidden behind the fictitious update; therefore, if you have not removed Codec-C from your PC yet, you need to do this immediately.
If Codec-C update recommendations keep popping up on your screen, there is no doubt that a browser hijacker or another vicious program has already breached your system’s security. Truth be told, it is much easier to have your PC infected with malware than ever before, because it has been found out that many computer users fail to update their antivirus, malware removal applications. This can be used by cyber crooks, who know various different ways to infect your system with malicious applications; therefore, the best way to prevent Codec-C or any other danger from being infiltrated into your PC is by using legitimate, automatic applications to protect your operating system.
Unfortunately, if you try to remove the pop-up recommendations from your browser by reconfiguring the security settings, this action will not delete Codec-C or the browser hijacker that could be initiating this. Therefore, it would be best to have your system inspected by automatic malware removal tools, which could find and delete files initiating the system pop-ups. If you are determined to remove Codec-C virus manually, you need to disable your network connections and delete the program from the Control Panel list. This may not be enough, and you will also need to look out for malignant components that could help the infection to function within the PC.
