Having a lot of plug-ins and extensions on your browser sometimes is not as beneficial as you might think. Such programs as BobyZoom can slow down your browser and redirect you to unfamiliar websites that distribute adware applications. This means that keeping such programs on your computer is far from safe, so your best option right now is to remove BobyZoom as soon as possible. You can never know who might make use of this application to spy on you, so you need to nip the problem in the bud.
We would like to point out that BobyZoom is not a genuine computer infection because it does not trick you into installing it. Users install the application themselves when it comes bundled with other freeware programs. BobyZoom cannot be distributed through bobyzoom.com (which is its main homepage) because the direct download button there simply does not work. As a result, we can assume that the main method of distribution is software bundles.
That would mean users can easily avoid installing BobyZoom on their computers if only they would limit themselves to downloading applications from official websites. Third-party sites and torrent pages often contain a lot of fake download links that initiate adware and shareware downloads you neither need nor want. Consequently, BobyZoom gets set up on your computer along with some other application that successfully slows down your system performance and exposes you to various online marketing schemes.
BobyZoom itself works as a browser plug-in that is supposed to help you zoom various pictures online, but in reality the only thing this program does is collect information on your web browsing habits. BobyZoom finds out what websites you visit on a regular basis and what you usually search for online. This way the app can generate your online profile which allows it to create a stream of specially tailored custom ads. These ads contain third-party content that BobyZoom does not even try to review. Hence, some of the BobyZoom ads might be embedded with corrupted outgoing links that have been inserted there by malicious third parties.
This is the main reason computer security experts strongly discourage users from keeping adware apps on their computers. So, if you are a security-minded user, you will delete BobyZoom immediately. Access Control Panel and terminate this program before it manages to cause some serious computer security issues.
You should also delete all the other unwanted applications that might be running on your PC. The best way to determine which programs must be removed is to scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner. Not only will you be able to find all the potential threats, but you would also protect your system from similar intruders in the future.
