Colormedia.dll is a suspicious adware helper that our researchers associate with PriColor, an advertisement-supported program that you should remove from your operating system. Our malware researchers advise deleting both the adware and the adware helper, because this software is unreliable and could be dangerous to your virtual security. You will learn to remove Colormedia.dll after reading this report that we have conducted after thoroughly analyzing the suspicious adware helper.

Most computer users do not know that Colormedia.dll is active on their operating systems. This adware helper runs alongside PicColor, and this program is usually installed bundled with third-party programs. Are you sure that you do not need to delete PicColor related software? We do not recommend trusting your gut when it comes to malware, because sometimes dangerous applications do not look that dangerous at all. To find out which programs you need to remove and which you can leave alone, you should use a malware scanner. Make sure you delete all threats detected by the scanner, including Colormedia.dll.

According to researchers, Colormedia.dll has been developed by Say Media Group LTD, and it is digitally signed by Cart Crunch Israel LTD. Are you familiar with these companies? If you are not, why have you decided to trust the software linked to them? PicColor is not installed as a browser extension, and it is controlled via files, such as the dynamic-link library file Colormedia.dll. This adware helper could be used to assist in the presentation of suspicious advertisements, and it could be used to update adware. Of course, because the file gets installed without notification, most users do not realize that it requires removal.

We believe it is necessary to delete Colormedia.dll, because this adware helper is associated with an unreliable ad-supported program. If you do not delete this program, it could flood your browsers with unreliable pop-up and banner ads offering misleading and unreliable services. If you remove Colormedia.dll, these ads could be disabled, but this is not a given. In most cases, computer users will have to delete PicColor and all components associated with this adware to disable the undesirable activity.
