I am infected with Bill Break virus. How dangerous can it be?

Bill Break virus is rather a potentially unwanted program (PUP) than malware. However, this program is ad-supported, what means that it can start causing commercial content on your computer. Typically, such adware-type programs are used to display various price comparisons, deals, notifications about discounts and similar pop-up ads. If you have already noticed pop-up ads that are marked as “ads by Bill Break” or “Bill Break ads,” you can be sure that you are dealing with this adware. If you don’t know how it infiltrated your computer, you should think about free software that you downloaded to it. Typically, this PUP spreads in a bundle with download managers, PDF creators, video streaming software and similar programs. The only way to get rid of its ads (which is the most annoying thing related to this freeware) is to remove it from your computer. Nevertheless, you should think about Bill Break removal for the following reasons as well:

  • Bill Break virus is capable of tracking its victims. It typically collects information, which is related to people’s browsing activity, such as search terms, mostly used websites and similar data. However, it can also know what is your PC’s IP address, its location and your email address.
  • Bill Break ads are displayed as soon as people start their search sessions. Sometimes they can cover your favorite website entirely leaving you incapable of reading information, which is provided on it.
  • Beware that after clicking any of adware’s ads you may find yourself on unknown website. This strategy is used for promoting third party websites and increasing their page rank or sales. However, there is no guarantee that Bill Break redirect activity won’t trick you into visiting an unsafe domain.

Bill Break hijack

How can this adware get into my PC?

Bill Break virus can sneak into your computer system alongside other free applications. Unfortunately, there is no way to find out whether a free program of your choice has this or similar PUP attached to it or not before you download it because such information can only be revealed during software’s installation process. To find that out, you need to select Advanced or Custom installation settings and then see if the setup provides any offers to install optional freeware. If it does, it means that you have downloaded a software package. To avoid Bill Break hijack, you need to deselect these offers to avoid installing unreliable third-party programs. If you do not see any offers to install additional freeware after selecting Advanced or Custom installation mode, you can proceed to the next step of the installation wizard.
