Mirar

Mirar is an annoying adware program which runs on every Windows Startup and some users find it very hard to get rid of it. The program appears in the form of Browser Helper Object (BHO) and it is a commercial Internet Explorer toolbar which collects data about the sites visited, and then tries to redirect the user to a site which is supposedly related to pages which have been viewed before. Even though Mirar is not very dangerous, it is extremely irritating.

When it gets into the computer it modifies certain registry entries so that Mirar could register itself as a browser add-on. It also provides users with a whole list of free software applications in exchange of displaying commercial content on the affected computers. The applications distributed by Mirar include WeatherWatch, BadPopup Blocker, RelatedPage, TimeAccurate and the like.

The biggest problem posed by this annoying piece of software is its removal. Since Mirar meddles with internet browsing and displays commercial messages of various contents, it is recommended to get rid of it. However, due to the fact that it is able to hide itself well, the manual removal is very hard for a user who is not computer-savvy. In such case automatic malware removal is recommended, and the user can destroy Mirar by using an up-to-date malware detector tool.
