What is dmwu.exe and how to remove it?

Tell your friends:

dmwu.exe - IBUpdaterService by Perion Network Ltd.

What is Dmwu.exe?

dmwu.exe is a part of the Web Optimizer adware that may display advertisements on your computer. This applications may be also installed along with MyStart by Incredibar browser hijacker and other Perion products. It's not essential for Windows and may cause problems, for example you met get a Windows message that dmwu.exe has encountered a problem and similar error pop-ups. Since this application periodically checks for updates it creates a Windows service named IBUpdaterService (Updater Service). Needles to say it runs automatically every time you start your computer. Some users say it slows their machines and even causes system errors. Furthermore, it may download and install additional adware/spyware onto your computer without your knowledge. Some antivirus products detect this application as InstallBrain adware, others simply flag it as generic Trojan horse. I recommend you to remove dmwu.exe from your computer.
