Zipclix Spyware Profile

Zipclix is a spyware program disguised as a toolbar add-on for your browser.  It was first discovered on October 15 of 2003.  It was created by Mworld Holdings, Ltd and is powered by popupblockade.com.

It is distributed typically as a bundle with InternetWasher or SystemSoap. It has been known to deliver pop-up ads.  It also hijacks your browser, redirecting searches and your home page to popupblockade.com.  It also has a self-update feature, which it uses to download arbitrary files, perhaps adware and spyware.  It is also set to start when you start up Internet Explorer, so it can be difficult to remove.

The activity of Zipclix 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.  Zipclix has an uninstall program contained within it, but there’s no guarantee that it will remove the spyware components.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner guarantees complete removal of this threat.

    I have just been infected with a couple of trojans both hopefully cleaned, but everytime i used Xoft Anti Spyware program it searched in a folder C:\Program Files\Zipclix and taked a reasonable length of time searching this folder (This folder is where all the trojan entries appeared from) before now finding nothing and continuing, but can’t find any folder in Program Files called Zipclix. My computer was not working normally and I received lots of pop-ups. I had to search information about Zipclix and I found this site. I have just downloaded Zipclix Downloader and everything is back to normal.
    Thanks!
