What is ZoomEx?

ZoomEx is yet another useless ad-supported program from the ever-growing Multiplug family. When you are infected with this adware, there are clear telltale signs in the form of third-party advertisements. While you might think that it is great to have best deals and products offered to you so that you can “save money,” we must tell you that clicking on these ads might end ugly for you. Closing pop-up ads will not save you from the potential risk of clicking on them. You need to remove ZoomEx if you want to protect your PC. However, if you have this threat on your computer, it is more than likely that there are other malware infections as well. In order to restore the previous security level of your operating system, we advise you to read on our article to find out more.

Where does ZoomEx come from?

This adware is built on the infamous JustPlugIt cross-browser engine. It is “infamous” because lots of ad-supported programs have been developed based on this engine, including MoreForLess, CoupontasticOffers, and Awesome-Promos. Just like all other Multiplug applications, ZoomEx is also distributed via third-party installers, such as InstallRex. It is essential to understand that these installers may not only contain useful and legitimate free software as a lot of unsuspecting users may think. Unfortunately, they can also be packed with malicious software, including adware programs and browser hijackers. If you happen to install such a lot, you will infect your machine with several threats and even deleting ZoomEx will not help you to secure your PC. The best you can do to minimize the risks is to run a full system malware scan to see what you may be up against, and then, you will need to take action.

What does ZoomEx do?

Since there is no official promotional website that could give you an idea, however fake it is, about what ZoomEx actually do, you can infer that it has no other function than displaying third-party commercials to generate web traffic to affiliated websites; that is how it can make money for its creators. Obviously, you have to click on the ads to actually “support” the creators and that is exactly what we would like to warn you about. The truth about third-party ads is that there is no one who would take responsibility for the web content you may be exposed to by clicking on them. This means that it is possible to end up on unreliable websites where, for example, you could be fooled into downloading useless software updates, which are indeed malware infections. But you might also be scammed to reveal your personally identifiable details, which then can be misused to commit some online fraud. Does that sound bad enough for you to make a move on this infection? Are you ready to remove ZoomEx from your system?

How to delete ZoomEx

If you want to entirely eliminate this threat, you need to do the following: Find the uninstaller in the list of installed programs in Control Panel and run it, then, remove the browser extensions from Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Since the uninstaller should take care of the Internet Explorer extension, you do not need to do that manually. Please use our guide below if you are not confident about these steps. Remember that you can protect your PC from certain threats if you keep all your programs and drivers updated and if you stay away from unreliable freeware and torrent sites, not to mention third-party ads.
