What is VideoBuzzer?

VideoBuzzer is a free application program that is mainly responsible for displaying commercial advertisements during people's browsing. In addition to that, it is set to track users and collect non-personal information about their web browsing habits. By the way, you should also known that it tends to spread bundled with various freewares and sharewares and infiltrate computers without being noticed. There are more unwanted operations that VideoBuzzer virus is set to implement on target computer; however, these are the main factors due to which security experts have decided to categorize it as an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Having this in mind, you should not believe in its promises to enhance your experience while viewing online videos and do not even consider installing it. It seems that it's related to various third parties and seeks to boost traffic to affiliate websites. In order to do that, VideoBuzzer virus may hijack all most popular web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer and deliver tens of commercial advertisements that inform about various deals, discounts, and coupons. Even though you may receive appealing commercial offers, you have to remember that 'Ads by VideoBuzzer' are sponsored by third parties and set to reroute you to predetermined websites some of which may be unsafe. By the way, we have already mentioned, that this misleading adware may also collect information about your browsing habits and gather your browsing history. No matter how harmless such activity may seem at first, beware that it may be used for wrong reasons. To avoid all issues that VideoBuzzer redirects may cause, we highly recommend employing Reimage Reimage Cleaner or another reputable anti-spyware and eliminating this adware from your computer.

How can VideoBuzzer hijack my computer?

In most of the cases, installers of adware-type programs can be found on official websites. However, we haven't managed to find an installer of VideoBuzzer add-on on the Internet distributed on its own. Therefore, we assume that it mainly spreads bundled with other freewares and sharewares. If you are not familiar with this distribution technique, beware that it's referred to as 'bundling' and is a widely used for spread potentially unwanted programs, such as adwares, or browser hijackers. To be more precise, various additional components (managed by third parties), such as add-ons, plug-ons, toolbars, and extensions are inserted into the main installer of various freewares and sharewares and distributed in one pack. In order to opt out of them, you have to be more careful when installing freewares on your computer. Before starting the installation, we recommend you to read its EULA, Privacy Policy, and other relevant information. If you do not find anything suspicious there, it a must to select Advanced or Custom installation option and carefully check the entire installation process. You should specifically look for check boxes that promote additional components and opt out of them. In case VideoBuzzer adware has already slithered onto your computer, do not wait until it cause serious computer-related issues.
