Here’s another irritating, annoying and intrusive adware application that users ought to remove. It’s called Webzoom, and it is designed to make your life just a little bit more uncomfortable by displaying ads each time you embark on a journey through the World Wide Web. It goes without saying that adware is designed to display ads everywhere you go. Some adware is more aggressive than other when it comes to the quantity and frequency of ads showing up on your screen. Webzoom is especially annoying, because it is able show multiple pop-ups and banners that may show up at the very middle of your screen. The pros and cons of this application must be taken into consideration, though it must be said that its disadvantages far outweigh the benefits it might bring.

Webzoom is advertised as a simple, easy to use application that magnifies online photos and images. However, the application also contains a lot of advertisements that appear at random. The main purpose of this adware is to generate as much web traffic for their associated websites as possible, thus generating income. Webzoom is known to display a wide selection of intrusive ads in the form of coupons, pop-ups, banners, price comparisons and reviews, and so on. In addition, the user may be bombarded by numerous notifications that warn about dangerous security threats suggesting to “Clean Now.” Regardless whether the application is useful or not, we think that there is absolutely no excuse to keep it on your computer, and we encourage you to delete it, because it might severely jeopardize your system’s security by allowing malicious applications to enter it.

We recommend not to click any notifications that notify you about a supposedly dangerous threat, because you might actually be opening up your system for malware to infect it. Even though we advocate not to install, but to remove WebZoom from your system, we must mention the methods which are used to distribute it.

WebZoom can be downloaded from its designated website at or by installing it together with software bundles. Our researchers have discovered at least some applications that Webzoom comes bundled with. Those applications include Outbrowse downloader, Reg Clean Pro, RocketTab, VuuPC, and YTDownloader. As always, we advise to opt out the installation of this adware when installing any of these bundles.

From the information provided, we can conclude that Webzoom is one intrusive adware application. It is rather cleverly disguised as a useful tool that allows users to magnify pictures or images. However, the disadvantages outweigh its advantages, because the advertisements it promotes are potentially dangerous. Clicking an infected ad may result in even more dangerous malware appearing on your PC that could seriously damage it. Thus, we encourage users not to take the risk of getting infected with malware and remove Webzoom as soon as possible.
