What is View Password?

This adware program injects advertisements with its affiliate ad providers in order to serve a number of ad types including banner, inline text links and
popups.

Overview

During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). 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. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). In the Mozilla Firefox browser, it will add an add-on. The main program executable is View-Password.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 17 files and is usually about 667.01 KB (683,016 bytes).
  • Possible malware installed by this program
  • Automatically starts with Windows
  • Loads into the web browser
  • Installs a Windows Service
  • Typically distributed through a pay-per-install bundle
  • Injects advertisements unassociated with the underlying web page
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
Warning, multiple anti-virus scanners have detected possible malware in View Password.
