Unclassified.Spyware BHO O Information
Unclassified.Spyware BHO.O is a browser helper object identified by SpyNet and is currently being researched.
A BHO, or “Browser Helper Object,” is a DLL module designed as a plug-in for Internet Explorer’s web browser to provide added functions. Some models such as Adobe Acrobat plug-in allow Internet Explorer users to work with PDF files. Other modules add toolbars such as Google’s as a search browser interface.
While most BHOs are not harmful, when adware creators use browser helper objects in a malicious way, this can create havoc for the PC user. Harmful BHOs are automatically added to your PC when you install third-party software. Many of these programs monitor your online movements and report the findings back to the creators. This information is then used to send pop-up advertisements related to your searches back to your computer.
There are a few signs which can help determine if your PC is infected. Look for slow performance as the BHO eats up your bandwidth; new desktop items such as icons and shortcuts; home page redirects or resetting; and annoying pop-up windows (sometimes to the point where you cannot use your PC). In some cases BHOs can change your default settings, which can render your PC inoperable.
