What is XvidlyPlus+?

XvidlyPlus+ is a media player that bundles adware and other unwanted web browser extensions. The software is no longer distributed.


XvidlyPlus+ is a software program developed by xVidly.com. 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 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). The primary executable is named xvupd.exe. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 3 files. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows XP and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 88% of users of XvidlyPlus+ come from the United States, it is also popular in Iran.
