Video Box Ads

Video Box Ads are the advertisements that show up while downloading videos with a potentially unwanted program called VideoBox or through the software’s official website. If you are using any of the mentioned tools and noticed any suspicious advertising, you should be aware such content could be potentially dangerous. The research shows some of the promoted ads may come from malicious web pages, so if you happen to click them, you should be redirected to such websites as well. Therefore, we advise users to be extra cautious and try not to interact with this content until they clean up the system and erase the application responsible for the advertisements. For more information, users should continue reading the article, although if you cannot wait to get rid of annoying Video Box Ads, we can offer the removal instructions placed below the article to make this task easier for you.

As it was previously mentioned, Video Box Ads are tightly related with an online video downloader available on video-box.org and a potentially unwanted program called VideoBox. Both of the tools allow their users to get a copy of any video they choose from the software’s supported web pages, for example, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, MTV, NBC, and so on. The application cannot be downloaded from the official site, so our researchers believe it should be distributed through other channels like unreliable file-sharing web pages. Such sites could spread it together with other suspicious applications via bundled setup files.

Talking about the official website, it could be advertised through pop-up ads or doubtful web pages. However, no matter how you came across of these tools, this might suggest you are too careless while downloading freeware. To keep the system clean it is advisable to always look for more information about applications before agreeing to install or start using them. For more protection, users could also acquire legitimate antimalware software; it might help you identify threats or potentially dangerous programs more quickly. We do not say these video downloaders are malicious, but Video Box Ads might be, and that is something you should know if you are using such software.

Apparently, the mentioned tools may show users Video Box Ads or automatically redirect them to third-party web pages without asking any permission and while downloading the chosen videos. The content the user could encounter may look rather irritating, but some of it might be malicious too. For instance, our researchers report that some of the third-party advertisements and websites could suggest you install unreliable applications like browser hijackers, adware, potentially unwanted programs, and so on. Also, you might get redirected to various gambling or adult web pages that could contain malicious threats, such as viruses, Trojans, ransomware, and so on. Clearly, there might be different scenarios as we do not know where these ads may come from. The question is, do you need to download any videos so badly so you would risk the computer’s safety?

If you decide you do not want to see Video Box Ads ever again, we encourage you to remove the program responsible for such content. To erase VideoBox, you should go to your Control Panel and just uninstall it. No need to worry if you have no idea how to use this feature as you can follow the deletion instructions placed below the article. Additionally, we would advise users to scan the computer with reliable antimalware software for safety precautions. If these suspicious tools managed to settle on the system, there is a possibly you could have accidentally downloaded more threats as well. Nonetheless, you can delete these possible threats by performing a full system scan.
