Vaudix is a Potentially Unwanted Program. Vaudix is marketed as a way for computer users to enhance their online streaming and video through a variety of supposed features. However, Vaudix does not deliver on any of its supposed promises. The main purpose of Vaudix is to generate revenue from advertising, what makes PC security researchers classify Vaudix as an adware. In many cases, other security software may even detect Vaudix as threatening. It is important to note that usually Vaudix is installed automatically, bundling Vaudix with legitimate software and hoping that computer users will not detect the presence of Vaudix or misunderstand its true nature. Since Vaudix may compromise your security, malware researchers advise computer users to remove Vaudix at once using an established security product that is fully up-to-date.
Vaudix is the Kind of PUP that Shouldn't be on Your Computer
Vaudix is usually installed as a Web browser add-on and may be installed on the most common Web browsers on Windows, including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Once installed, Vaudix may add numerous advertisements to websites viewed on the affected Web browser, as well as display pop-up advertisements and other irritating pop-up messages. Vaudix may also track the victim's online activity, logging information about the infected computer, such as its IP address and system settings, as well as data about the computer user's online activities, habits and history.
Besides Displaying Unwanted Content Vaudix may Create Trouble
Vaudix may cause a variety of issues on affected computers. Vaudix may adjust your Web browser's settings, which may be modifications to the affected Web browser's homepage and default search engine. Vaudix may also affect how the Web browser connects to the Internet, often redirecting it, creating pop-up messages or new tabs to appear and causing the affected computer's Internet connection to slow down due to Vaudix' tracking. Vaudix may also result in other performance issues, causing the affected Web browser to crash or freeze and making it nearly unusable due to the high frequency of unwanted marketing material.
