Xfirefox.exe obtains and installs a suspicious copy of Firefox Developer Edition as soon as it enters your operating system. While at first sight, it might not seem like a big deal, you should know that this additional tool will be used in a devious way, to say the least. During its analysis, our researchers have discovered that it will primarily be used to open unwanted third-party websites at random times, whether you like that or not. These undesirable sites will be presented to you for as long as your PC is turned on. Thus, it is not surprising that such functionality could drain your computer's resources, eventually making it perform in a significantly slower manner. Not surprisingly it will also have a substantial impact on the way you experience the web. Unfortunately, it will not be a positive one. For as long as this Trojan will be active on your PC you will constantly be disturbed with presentations of questionable websites. The complete list of what sites this application opens can be found in a single file entitled prev.dat located in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder. In the majority of cases, users are provided with various sites that promote different products. It goes without saying that due to all of this, surfing the web the way you are used to will be impossible. To regain your browsers default functionality so you could surf the web without interruptions, make sure to completely delete Xfirefox.exe once and for all.
If the invasive and annoying functionality of Xfirefox.exe was not enough, you should know that it could also be the main reason other programs might be able to enter your PC without a lot of trouble. If you already have this Trojan active on your PC, our malware experts highly advise you to perform an analysis of your PC for other suspicious and even potentially malicious programs. It is important to do so because in quite a few cases this devious application is spread via bundled installers, which are notorious for being the primary source of undesirable and dangerous software. You must also know that some of the websites presented to you by this Trojan could prove to be potentially harmful. There is a chance that you could be presented with a web page that is designed to infect your PC and just entering it or clicking anything on it could result in a system infection. Such sites are usually embedded with something known as an arbitrary code execution exploit, which can trigger a remote silent installation. Even though such websites are not presented frequently, coming across one remains a possibility. Do not leave Xfirefox.exe active on your PC under no circumstances. To have a secure and clean computer, you need to delete it entirely.
Make sure to follow the removal instructions for Xfirefox.exe with care; execute each step with your utmost attention since a single mistake, or a skipped step could result in an incomplete removal. This is a situation that you do not want to find yourself in because leftovers of this Trojan could still act in a devious manner. Upon further investigation, our malware researchers have discovered that in some instances Xfirefox.exe could continue its intrusive functionality with the help of just a few leftover files. In other situations, its traces might be used to restore it. Avoid finding yourself in such situation by simply double-checking your PC for anything associated with Xfirefox.exe once you are done with the manual removal.
