PEDev.BHO Spyware Profile

PEDev.BHO, the spyware bundled with the DelFin Media Viewer, is a highly dangerous spyware program.  It delivers ads in a television-like broadcast using animated commercials.  It also delivers pop-up and pop-under ads.  The resources it takes to run this program are so large that typically it will freeze Internet Explorer and necessitate manual shut down.  If you are still able to run Internet Explorer, it will monitor your browsing habits and send the data to a remote server.

PEDev.BHO was created by The DelFin Project, Inc. from Boca Raton, FL.  In their End User Licensing Agreement, they admit to collecting information, stating that it is for customer service and advertising purposes.  They claim that they don’t collect “personal information” such as names and addresses, but do say that they’re capable of doing so, and will in certain circumstances.  This constitutes a privacy threat.

If you have PEDev.BHO on your computer, it is in your best interest to remove it immediately.  It is both a system stability and privacy threat.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner by ZookaWare can consistently and effectively remove it from your computer.
