- Shows commercial adverts
- Annoying Pop-up's
VideoX may seem like a useful application that will help you stream online videos in HD quality. Unfortunately, our computer security specialists label this program as adware. It means that VideoX collects data on your web browsing habits and then shares it with unreliable third parties in order to create a string of commercial advertisements. If you want to avoid annoying pop-ups, you must remove VideoX as soon as you can. This program may not be a direct computer security threat, but it still poses specific risks that cannot be overlooked.
One of the main reasons why we cannot trust such applications as VideoX is that it does not have a direct download link. Although we can access the main homepage via vid-oex.info, the download button is nowhere to be seen. Despite the fact that VideoX is said to “enable you to enjoy the majority of online video and audio formats right in your browser,” we can assume that the main method of distribution of this application is bundled downloads. Software bundling is used by adware and even malware creators to promote and distribution their content. Hence, when a program employs such shady methods to spread around, it cannot be trusted 100%.
Another reason you should avoid VideoX, is that the newest versions of Google Chrome web browser block this application, disallowing to add an extension. If one of the most popular web browsers does not want to have anything to do with VideoX, it should be enough of a heads up for you to get rid of it. What is more, even if it were to improve video streaming quality, you have to remember that VideoX also displays commercial advertisements on such websites as Amazon, BestBuy or Barnes & Noble. It means that with this application installed on your computer, you will always be assaulted by a galore of ads whenever you access any of the supported websites.
Some users choose simply to ignore the ads, but you should not let it be. Some of the ads might be embedded with corrupted content. If you click one of them accidentally, you might access a potentially dangerous website that distributes malware and other unwanted software. The best way to avoid it is to remove VideoX immediately. It is possible to uninstall this program via Control Panel, and when you are done with it, scan the system with SpyHunter free scanner.
It is very likely that there is more than just one unwanted program on your computer, so you should not take any chances. Delete them all at once, and protect your system from potential threats.
