What is Bang5Tao?
Bang5Tao was released for the purpose of promoting merchandise available for purchase from a website called B5m.com. You should remove this program if you do not want to see its annoying promotions. Our researchers have classified it as an adware program, and quite rightly so, because apart from displaying advertisements it will not do anything else. The main issue regarding this program is the fact that it cannot be easily removed even if you wanted to, so we took it upon ourselves to show you how to do it. We have also gathered some relevant information about Bang5Tao that you might find interesting and insightful. So let us get started.
Where does Bang5Tao come from?
The most obvious thing that this program stands out for is its language. Bang5Tao only supported language is Chinese. Therefore, it was most likely developed by Chinese software developers and specifically targets the Chinese-speaking population; hence, its promoted website is also Chinese. Our researchers have found that this program is currently being distributed on its website at T.b5m.com and via malicious software bundles. Obviously, the website only attracts people who speak the language, but when it comes to software bundles Bang5Tao can be found on questionable freeware sharing websites that host them. Note that this program is installed without the user’s knowledge or consent and cannot be gotten rid of using traditional means. This program can be found among the other programs in the Control Panel. But the uninstaller cannot be initiated.
How does Bang5Tao work?
The main reason why you should uninstall Bang5Tao is its annoying advertisements that can be shown on a lot of web browsers. As you would expect, this program definitely supports the three most popular browsers that are Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Furthermore, this program as a graphical user interface, a window that should be populated with promotions or something of that nature, but it did not work when we tested it. Regardless, these promotions are irrelevant in you do not live in China. And we would like to point out that a legitimate online retailer would not use adware to promote its products. Whatever the case may be, Bang5Tao has no place on your computer as it also uses a considerable amount of system resources.
