Adspy.bho.dau

Description

[BHO]s are used by Internet browsers to add features such as toolbars or plug-ins, but they can also be used to deliver malware that delivers ads, redirects browsing traffic, installs unwanted files, or runs malicious scripts. Since a [BHO] does not always cause a visible change to a browser, it can easily be concealed from detection.

To disconnect your PC from the Internet you need to plug-off LAN cable (if you use LAN connection) or to turn of the Wi-Fi module (if you use Wi-Fi Internet connection). Most of (not 100%) Browser Helper Objects can not access Wi-Fi module preferences. Turning off the Internet will disable Adspy.bho.dau from transferring any data from your PC.

    After that you have to follow the next instructions according to the versions of Microsoft Windows you use:

      Windows XP:
    1. Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.

    2. Select Safe Mode from Windows Advanced Options Menu and press ENTER.

      Windows Vista, 7:
    1. Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.

    2. Use the arrow keys from Windows Advanced Options Menu in order to select Safe Mode and press ENTER.

    1. Press and hold the Shift button when left-clicking the Restart button on Windows log-on screen.

    2. Select Safe Mode from Windows Troubleshooting boot screen and press ENTER.

  • Step 4: Removing virus files

What damage can Adspy.bho.dau do to my computer?
