The functionality of this adware application is rather generic as it has been found out that, like many other or today's adware programs, StreamX relies on browser extensions to provide you with a ton of unwanted third-party web content. In most cases, all such content manifests itself as third-party commercial ads and annoying pop-ups. The malicious browser extension is used to contact numerous suspicious adware servers which are known to be the primary source of those ads and pop-ups. All of the web content presented to you will ruin your online experience, to say the least. This is so because you will need to close down all of the third-party ads and annoying pop-ups just to navigate the web in a normal manner. Additionally, all of the unwanted content will be presented to you in an entirely random way, on random websites, at random times, which, it goes without saying, is annoying and frustrating. Make sure to conduct a complete removal of StreamX, as, otherwise, the intrusive activity that this adware promotes will continue to bother you.
Unfortunately, there is something much more about StreamX. During the research, it has been revealed that this adware program could act in a quite malicious way. This is so because some ads provided by it were seen implemented with various redirect links. It is important to realize that such a situation is extremely dangerous because just by clicking on a simple ad you could be taken to suspicious third-party websites. You could be taken to a website that runs an arbitrary code execution exploit, meaning that just entering such a website is more than enough to get your operating system infected with some unknown malware. Just by clicking on an ad provided by this adware you could get your PC infected with Trojans, rootkits, or even keyloggers. These are extremely dangerous situations which could have devastating outcomes. Do not take any chances with StreamX, as it imposes huge virtual security risks. Take immediate measures to remove this adware as soon as possible.
The removal of StreamX is a two-step procedure. First, you will need to remove the malicious extension, and then you will need to remove the adware via Control Panel. While such removal stops the intrusive activity, it might not always remove every single bit of this adware. If you wish to be sure that no leftovers linked to StreamX are active on your PC, you are advised to scan your PC with a professional antimalware tool as soon as manual removal is executed.
