VideoX is an annoying adware application that spams you with commercial advertisements. These advertisements appear on a number of popular shopping websites, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BestBuy and many others. Technically, VideoX application should be related to media watching and HD online streaming, but as you can see, it is also associated with commercial advertisements and potential system security threats. Hence, if you are a security-minded user, you will remove VideoX from the system ASAP. This program cannot deliver its promises, and it also poses specific risks that you cannot ignore.
Were you to come across the official website for VideoX at vid-oex.info, you would see the following promotional line:
A new solution kit which will make it easier for you to Watch and listen to your favorite online content. High-quality video shouldn’t stop at your browser as VideoX supports IE, FF and Chrome web browsers and will enable you to enjoy the majority of online video and audio formats right in your browser.
It does sound nice; especially as HD video quality is especially important nowadays. However, nothing in this world comes from free, so it is not surprising that VideoX supports commercial ads in order to survive. Most of the time, these advertisements are more annoying than dangerous, but you definitely should NOT click on any of them. It is clear that VideoX does not review the third-party content, and it cannot be held responsible for the security of unfamiliar websites you get redirected to. Rather than suffering the constant onslaught of annoying ads, you should remove VideoX immediately.
Some users may say that VideoX is not a dangerous computer infection. It is true that this program is not a computer virus, but that is not a reason to keep it on your PC. Newer versions of Google Chrome block this extension and it should be enough of a proof to realize that nothing good can come out of VideoX. To put it more clearly, VideoX will display constant pop-up ads, banners and in-text ads whenever you will access supported online shopping malls. These pop-ups will not allow you to browse the internet properly because they will slow down your browser.
You also have to remember that VideoX collects information on your web browsing habits, collecting data on what websites you visit and what you search for online. This data later on is used to generate the customized series of commercial advertisements, but it might also be leaked to malevolent third parties. You surely cannot allow that to happen, so the sooner you get rid of VideoX the better.
Luckily, it is possible uninstall VideoX via Control Panel. Given the fact that there is no direct download link for this program, we can assume that it has arrived on your PC together with other unwanted applications. Scan the PC with SpyHunter to detect other unwanted applications and then remove then all automatically. Also, if you need any assistance with VideoX’s removal, do not hesitate to leave us a comment.
