What is xVidly?
xVidly is a potentially unwanted application, which is presented as a useful tool. However, before you install this program on your computer, you should pay attention to this post and think twice. We say so because this program may try to initiate serious havoc on your computer, which may lead it to some additional problems. Some PC users have asked us how could have they download this program on their computers. The answer is really simple – xVidly is spread using two different distribution methods: it can be downloaded from its official website or it may infiltrate computers in a bundle with other applications without an appropriate permission asked. That's why you have to be very careful when downloading freeware, shareware and similar software to your computer. In addition, it's not only a distribution method that has encouraged us to mention this program on our blog. You should also know that xVidly adware may easily alter your PC's settings and then start interrupting you to continuous pop-up ads, redirects and similar issues while you are browsing on the Internet. In most of the cases, it causes annoying ads that are seeking to trick people into clicking them. Once you click on any of xVidly ads, you may be tricked into visiting unknown, suspicious and sometimes even malicious websites.
If this application or xVidly toolbar has appeared on your computer, you should stay away from its ads. In addition, we highly recommend avoiding its search box because it may show you altered search results. No matter how harmless it may sound, these results may trick you into visiting unsafe and very suspicious websites. If you have already been dealing with continuous pop-up advertisements and warnings, you should check your computer for xVidly. If it's hiding in it and you know that you haven't downloaded it by yourself, you should remove it from the system without a delay. The easiest way to do that is with a help of updated anti-spyware. We recommend using SpyHunter or other reputable security tool.
HOW CAN xVidly hijack my PC SYSTEM?
Xvidly can be downloaded from its official website as a download manager, but it can also get inside the system in a bundle with other programs. In most of the cases, you can find its name in the components list of the freeware and shareware, so you should always monitor installation of such software and eliminate pre-checked checkboxes that claim that you want to install xVidly on your computer. If this program has already managed to get inside your PC system, it may affect all of your Internet browsers that are installed on the system. So, it may show up as a toolbar on IE, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and may start offering its services when you start searching the Internet. Please, stay away from xVidly. We recommend removing it if you haven't downloaded it consciously.
