If you would like to find your dream job, it is possible that you would be happy to find BlingJobs on your computer; however – and here comes the cold shower – this application is not only useless, it may also pose a threat to your system security. If you really want to find the “job of your life,” we suggest that you go on searching for reliable websites and set your goals right because this application will not get you too far most probably. But, instead, it can expose you to potentially unsafe third-party ads and through them, to cyber criminals. Since even the official installer contains several other malware infections, we cannot say a good word about this annoying ad-supported program; but, then again, we are not here to promote it either. Instead, we want to disclose the risks this adware holds for you and your computer. We can tell you now that you should remove BlingJobs as soon as possible if you want to feel safe while using your PC. Surfing the web becomes quite risky when you have such a malware infection on board. In fact, this may not even be the only threat there is.
As we have already mentioned, practically every aspect of this application is suspicious starting from its own official website, blingjobs.com. We do not recommend visiting this site because when your computer is protected with an up-to-date security tool, it will most probably block this site since it finds a Trojan there. No wonder because, in fact, the official installer of this adware seems to contain a number of infections, including Search Know, Sweet-page.com, and MyPcBackUp. This means that if your PC is not protected, you would most likely download this installer and infect your computer with adware programs, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs as well. Leaving these infections on your system could influence your computer’s performance, but that is definitely not the biggest issue. Unfortunately, all of these threats may be able to expose you to unreliable third-party web content, which may lead to more infections and online scams as well.
But there is little chance that you actually find this website and download the installer there. We have noticed that you can also download this application through manipulated search results displayed by browser hijackers. This simply means that your computer has been previously infected by malware and that is how you end up with this useless adware by clicking on ads or links provided by these infections. Apart from this, it is also possible that you find this adware in malware bundles spreading through suspicious file-sharing websites. All in all, we suggest that you remove BlingJobs ASAP and run a system scan because it is quite likely that there are other malware infections on board.
When you start up this desktop program, it brings up its own GUI (Graphical User Interface) and displays its logo in the window while loading various pages into it. These are usually legitimate sites, such as startacareertoday.com. This site is a recurring one since this is what loads in the browser after you download the official installer of this application as well. What’s more, this site is also promoted by this adware when it opens an Internet Explorer window from time to time. Unfortunately, this adware may also start displaying annoying third-party advertisements that may be risky to click on. In fact, clicking on any ads is always risky since you can never know 100% sure that you will arrive on a safe website. If cyber criminals manage to pose as third parties, they may trick you into clicking on their ads and that is how you may find yourself on dangerous websites. We advise you to delete BlingJobs if you do not wish to experience the dark side of the Internet.
This adware has a working uninstaller, so it is not that big a deal to eliminate it. However, we have found that this uninstaller leaves some leftovers. You need to manually remove these if you want to erase this infection perfectly. Please use the instructions that we have prepared for you in case you need assistance with these steps. Keep in mind that you need to tackle all other infections as well if you want to feel secure using your computer. If you do not want to hunt down all these threats one by one, we think that a reliable anti-malware application could do the job for you with the click of a button. What could be any easier? If you would like to give your PC proper protection, we also suggest that you keep all your programs and drivers updated to lower the risk of security holes that can be exploited by cyber criminals to access your computer and your data.
