Adware.Wyyo tends to come bundled with pop-up advertisements, which is definitely not a wanted feature for any computer user.

Being a form of a malicious Trojan infection, Adware.Wyyo will only present a security risk to any computer is has infiltrated.

Adware.Wyyo is a potentially unwanted adware program that could be used to display various pop-up advertisements. Adware.Wyyo is also used by its creators to collect various information on the users surfing habits, this invading the users privacy.

According to a few sources, Adware.Wyyo has been found to perform the following functions:

• Downloads/requests other files from Internet.

• Registers a Browser Helper Object (Microsoft\'s Internet Explorer plug-in module).
• Contains characteristics of an identified security risk

What Adware.Wyyo will do is load up with Internet Explorer, as a Browser Helper Object (BHO). This means that Adware.Wyyo is a dynamic link library (DLL) that tends to run as soon as Internet Explorer is started.

BHO’s are usually installed covertly onto an unsuspecting computer system, so as to ensure the secretive gathering of information from the infected computer to a remote controller.

There are a few ways Adware.Wyyo could have entered into a system, namely:

- The user’s operating system and Web browser security setting are too flexible and relaxed
- The user does not follow safe Internet and PC practices.
