Vxmclient is classified as adware by security experts because of the numerous pop-up and banner advertisements it displays as the PC user browses the Web. The promoted ads may be quite irritating and not only disrupt your browsing activities, but they can direct you to unverified web pages and compromise the safety of your machine. It is recommended that you remove Vxmclient manually or with a competent AV tool.
How Is Vxmclient Distributed?
Vxmclient affects all the popular web browsers (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) and usually enters your system in a freeware bundle. This technique is legitimate, yet it is misused by developers to spread potentially unsafe applications and programs, which may expose your system to security risks. Choose the Custom options when you install new software on your PC to opt-out of unwanted apps, add-ons and extensions. It may seem to you that most of them enter your machine without your knowledge because they are not adequately disclosed upon installation, but the truth is that you give them your permission when you click the Next button throughout the installation process.
What Does Vxmclient Do?
The application injects numerous advertisements in the web pages you visit. Third-party ads pose different security risks for your computer since they can link you to corrupted websites or make your PC vulnerable to infections.
Vxmclient displays commercial ads matching your interests and preferences, and for that purpose it gathers information about the web pages you visit, the duration of your browsing sessions, the search terms you enter, your IP address, etc. Adware programs often transfer the collected data to third party advertisers who can further use it in their campaigns.
The primary goal of the ads by Vxmclient is to generate profit for the developers of the application and boost the web traffic for certain predetermined web pages.
