What is FB Photo Zoom?

FB Photo Zoom is an application, which should work as a tool helping people to preview the full size images just by hovering over their thumbnails. However, users have started to report that this program can get inside the system without any permission asked and then may start initiating various annoying activities that are not related to its purpose. Beware that this program may cause annoying pop-up advertisements and commercial ads during your browsing. No matter that the ads by FB Photo Zoom are not displayed on the desktop, they may easily appear on each of your favorite websites. Besides, you don't even need to be connected to Facebook to get all these advertisements! After clicking them, FB Photo Zoom virus may try to redirect you to the third party websites that seek to increase their page rank or sales. No matter how harmless it may look, you should keep in mind that such activity may end up on a suspicious website that is used for spreading questionable programs.

Because of all these activities, security experts have started to call FB Photo Zoom as an adware, a potentially unwanted program or a browser hijacker.

In most of the cases, such adware programs come inside their target PC systems together with third party software, such as CouponDropDownOnline HD TV or TornTV. Of course, you have no idea about all this infiltration. Once it gets there, it may initiate annoying pop-up notifications, so if you are annoyed by them, you should uninstall FB Photo Zoom from the system.
