VirusIt is a program that promises to scan your computer for viruses and malicious threats. This suspicious program is introduced to users via, but it is highly likely that some users will encounter it when downloading third-party software. The official installer of this strange application can introduce third-party programs as well, and our researchers have found that you could be offered installing, MyPcBackUp, and other questionable programs that we generally advise deleting. Unfortunately, you will have to remove VirusIt as well if it has found its way into your operating system.

Our researchers classify VirusIt as an advertisement-supported program. The Privacy Policy reveals that this adware shows third-party advertisements using different platforms (“on our site, other websites and other forms of media”). In order to select the ads that you are most likely to click on, VirusIt will install its own web cookies, as well as the cookies of third-party advertisers. Does it make sense to remove this adware after learning this? Anyone could pose as an advertiser, and the fact that potentially unreliable parties can spy on you is very disconcerting. In fact, this is one of the biggest reasons to delete VirusIt.

The Privacy Policy of VirusIt also reveals that this adware can create a service that sends commercial ads via SMS (short message service) to your phone. In order to perform this kind of promotion, VirusIt will have to learn your name, address, and phone number. If you do not want this strange program collecting your personal information, you need to delete it right this moment. Although it is stated that all personal data is kept in a “secure database centre,” you do not know the intentions of third parties capable of accessing it. In the worst case scenario – if you do not remove adware – you might become a victim if identity theft.

It was found that VirusIt – published by Lamphouse Media LLC – can start injecting ads as soon as it is executed, and, needless to say, it does not work as a virus scanner. Instead of offering useful services, it might open a window promoting a third-party scanner, which is a red flag that this program is unreliable. All in all, VirusIt is extremely annoying and intrusive, and, if you do not delete it, you will be bombarded with irritating advertisements, surveys, prize giveaways, video ads, and other kinds of promotion. This might slow down your Internet connection and initiate redirecting to truly malicious websites.

The good news is you can uninstall VirusIt. Click the correct button, and this advertisement-supported program will be gone for good. If you do not know how to perform the removal of this adware, use the guide below. As mentioned previously, VirusIt could be packaged with other suspicious programs, and you cannot dismiss their removal! Scan your PC with a malware scanner to learn which threats you need to delete, if you are interested in manual removal, or employ an automated malware remover to delete VirusIt and the infections active in your operating system.
