removal by Julie Splinters - -   Also known as Byte Label ads, Byte Label adware, Byte Label virus, Byte Label | Type: Adware

What is Byte Label?

Byte Label is an ad-supported web browser add-on that can be downloaded and used for free. However, security experts do not recommend doing so because this app is mainly used for affiliate marketing and may not only disrupt your web browsing activities, but also pose harm to your computer's security. You should draw your attention to the fact that Byte Label has been created by the infamous company that is known as Super Web LLC. If you haven't heard about it before, you should keep in mind that this company is responsible for the distribution of various potentially unwanted programs, mainly adwares. Therefore, generally speaking, you should avoid installing all apps that are designed by this company. Be very careful if Byte Label virus has already infiltrated your PC because it may start tracking you once inside. It spreads along with tracking cookies and may start collecting your search queries, websites visited, data entered, and similar information. Here, it should be noted that in personally identifiable information is not secure in any way and may also be collected. By the way, if you started seeing 'Ads by Byte Label' on each of your web browser, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and on every website that you visit, you should run a full system scan with Reimage because those ads may not only annoy you to death, but also make you visit corrupted websites and trick into installing other suspicious programs on your computer. Besides, you may also start experiencing slowdowns, notice questionable connections to the Internet, start receiving fake pop-up alerts, ads, and so on. If you suspect that your computer has already been affected by Byte Label virus, you should not ignore this fact and fix your computer ASAP.

How can Byte Label hijack my computer?

Byte Label can get inside my computer manually when people install it willingly from the official website. However, much often if spreads around with other freewares and sharewares and infiltrates random computers behind user's back. It cannot be stated that this ad-supported extension gets inside without user's permission asked. Since it's not a virus, it cannot travel absolutely hidden. Otherwise, probably it would have already been labeled as a virus. Even though it asks for permission to drop its extension on all most popular web browsers, it does so in a misleading manner, i.e. Bytes Label spreads in a pack with other freewares and sharewares as additional component and is presented as a useful browser add-on. Thus, it is either accepted by people who believe that it will really enhance their web browsing experience or it is inadvertently accepted by accomplishing installation of a freeware without paying enough attention to it. To avoid this happening, you should always carefully check every notification and unmark check boxes that promote optional downloads, such as add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars or extensions. For doing that, you have to select Advanced or Custom installation option (avoid Quick, Basic, and Recommended installation).
