Xupiter Detection and Removal

Xupiter is an adware program that installs itself as a toolbar in your Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser.  It performs browser hijacks and search hijacks.  This means that if you search for a term on your preferred search engine, Xupiter will redirect it through its own search engine of choice.  It may also set your home page to one that it chooses.

Xupiter may also create bookmarks in your favorites folder.  In addition, it starts running its tasks as soon as you start up your computer—and does so without your permission—which involves software downloads for the adware.  It does this on a regular basis, which makes it a security concern as well as an annoyance.  As with all adware, it uses system resources to annoy you with pop-up advertisements.

This program has been known to download not only its own updates, but third party applications as well, such as online casino software.  It uses up system resources and bandwidth, and may occasionally crash Internet Explorer.

If you are given a “chance” to download the Xupiter toolbar, please refuse it and download a good anti-spyware program (we recommend ZookaWare PC Cleaner) instead!
