Byte Label

What is Byte Label?

Byte Label adware is a web browser plugin that displays advertisements. Once installed the program will deliver ads including but not limited to banner ads, text-links, coupons and other offers both by injecting them in the user's web browser as well as displaying popups outside of the browser.


The most common release is 2015.07.25.143133, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named ByteLabelbho.dll. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 25 files and is usually about 9.34 MB (9,791,136 bytes).
