Viviband Toolbar Spyware Profile

Viviband Toolbar is a spyware program disguised as a toolbar add-on for your browser.  It was first discovered on January 9 of 2007.  It was created by SINA Inc. and is distributed by the website, http://vivi.sina.com.cn/.

Viviband Toolbar is installed on your computer manually by an ActiveX installer.  It may also be bundled with other ad-supported freewares, which may also be spyware or adware.  It resets your browser’s home page to http://vivi.sina.com.cn/ and redirects all searches to that website.

It uploads user data and browsing information to its server.  It does this supposedly in order to deliver contextual advertising.  There is, however, much potential for abuse.

The activity of Viviband Toolbar can seriously slow down your computer’s performance.  It can also potentially cause your Internet browser to freeze or crash.  Any supposed benefits it offers are not worth compromising the functionality of your computer, or your privacy.

If you are infected with this program, you should remove it immediately with ZookaWare PC Cleaner.  While there are other means to remove Viviband Toolbar, ZookaWare PC Cleaner has proven to consistently and completely remove this threat from your computer.
