ZoomEx is a strange name for an application that does nothing else but displays potentially unreliable third-party commercials on your computer screen making your web surfing experience a total nightmare. Due to its function, we have categorized it as an adware program. We have discovered that this adware is actually a new member in the Multiplug family. This is a completely useless program that can harm your operating system indirectly by its advertisements. Of course, first, you need to click on an ad to activate this potential. However, it is not only its ads that can mean danger to your computer; it is also likely that this adware did not come alone. There may be a number of other malware infections on-board as well. You need to act now if you want to save your computer. You should start the cleansing by removing ZoomEx. Please continue reading to find out more about the threats the presence of this infection may involve.

You will not find any official website where you could download this application from as a standalone file. But if you sacrifice one minute of your precious time, you can actually save yourself a lot of future headaches. If you do a web search on ZoomEx, before you try to download and install this application, you will clearly see that it may not be a good idea after all. Most of the links and pages will be about how to remove ZoomEx and why. So here is a quick lesson to learn today: Always research the tools and applications you want to install. By keeping this simple rule, you can do a lot for the protection of your computer.

Since there is no website promoting this useless app, there is only one way it can spread over the net: third-party installers. Unfortunately, when ZoomEx is bundled in InstallRex or Amonetize installers, it is not the only malware infection that gets packed. We have found, for instance, and browser hijackers in the same installers. You can easily spot that your browsers have been hijacked because usually both the home page and the default search engine settings get changed silently but visibly. So if you have noticed such modifications, you should delete ZoomEx and use a reliable free online scanner to identify the rest of the threats that may be present on your computer.

ZoomEx has only one goal, and that is to generate income for its developers who get paid by the pay-per-click system. It means that they are pushed to feed enough ads to you that they can make a good living out of your clicks. So, if you think about it for a second, your click virtually supports potential criminals and schemers. But it is not the only reason why we say that you should never click on ads by ZoomEx. The truth is that these ads may be totally unreliable. Third parties are never double-checked by the developers, so they can be anyone – even criminals. Thus, clicking on ads may redirect you to unsafe websites where you may as well be scammed. In order to avoid such an unfortunate event, you should remove ZoomEx immediately.

If you want to eliminate this infection, first, you need to uninstall it through Control Panel. Second, you need to delete the remaining browser extensions from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. In order to assist you with the necessary steps, we have included step-by-step instructions after this article. If you want to be efficient, you should take care of all the threats that may be on your computer because you cannot feel secure until you do so. Therefore, we advise you to install a reliable antimalware tool for the full-time protection of your PC.
