DailyBee is an application that people tend to install on their computers to be able to use Wikipedia straight from Desktop. In other words, they expect that they will no longer need to launch their browsers and type the URL of Wikipedia every time they want to get more information about particular things. Of course, not all the users download this program willingly. According to specialists, people might have this program installed on their computers even though they have not clicked on the Download button to get it. If you wonder how it is possible, you need to know that this application might have found a way to enter the system somehow differently. To be frank, it does not really matter how this application has entered the computer because this does not change the fact that DailyBee is a PUP, also known as a potentially unwanted program. Specialists working at pcthreat.com have put it into this category not without a reason. They have managed to find several suspicious facts about it even though DailyBee looks like a fully reliable program at first sight and works really well, i.e. displays information from Wikipedia based on the entered search query. You will find out more about this application too if you read this article. We hope that we will also help you to decide whether to delete this program or keep it despite all these drawbacks.
First of all, we cannot consider DailyBee a very trustworthy application because it creates the Value DailyBee in the Run registry key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run) to be able to start automatically with Windows. Many users do not think that there is something wrong that it acts like that; however, security specialists are sure that decent programs never make modifications to start automatically without permission. Also, they allow users to disable the autorun whenever they want to. Unfortunately, you will not be allowed to disable the autorun of DailyBee, which means that it will be launched again after the system restart despite the fact that you have closed it. Some users find this feature of DailyBee extremely annoying. If you are one of them, delete this program and then install another application that will allow you to perform searches on Wikipedia.
If you install DailyBee on your computer, you will not only see the Value in the Run registry key, but will also notice other changes. For example, you will find a new folder in %LOCALAPPDATA% and %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data (Windows XP). Also, several new registry keys will be created, e.g. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AppDataLow\Software\DailyBee and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\DailyBee. You will notice them only if you open the Registry Editor. Of course, you should check Control Panel to find out whether DailyBee is really installed on your PC instead of going through registry keys, if you are a less experienced user.
There is, of course, one more reason why specialists call DailyBee a potentially unwanted program. Research conducted by our specialists has revealed that this application might enter computers rather secretly despite the fact that it has an official website dailybee.timeapp-studio.com and can be easily downloaded from there. It is clear that this program travels together with free applications in software bundles. In other words, it is spread using the deceptive bundling method. Users usually get software bundles from P2P, torrent, and other untrustworthy third-party websites. Therefore, you should not download software from these websites ever again in order not to allow another untrustworthy application to enter the system. On top of that, security specialists recommend all the users to install a trustworthy antimalware tool on their computers. It will protect the computer 24/7 and will not allow dangerous threats to enter the computer again.
There are two ways to delete DailyBee from the system. You can either get rid of it manually or go for the automatic removal. Users who decide to delete this program manually should follow our step-by-step removal guide because they will have to take care of its leftovers too. If you are one of those users who are going to get rid of this software automatically, you need to download a reliable antimalware tool first. SpyHunter is one of those tools that will delete all the threats it finds on the computer within seconds, so we recommend using it.
