What is pennybee.exe?

Pennybee.exe is a potentially unwanted program that may display ads on pop-ups on your computer. The file is also related with playnowradio adware. Some variants may come bundled with spyware. However, it usually comes bundled with PUPs and adware. Very often, this program is distributed through the use of pay-per-install networks and software download websites. Pennybee.exe runs automatically when Windows starts. Furthermore, it's scheduled as a task named 'PennyBee'. The main executable is digitally signed by Jambo Digital Ltd. The digital signature is issued by COMODO and still valid. Some anti-virus engines detect it as adware or even malware. This program is not essential for Windows and may cause problems. It runs in the background and periodically checks for updates which means it uses your internet connections therefore some websites may load slower than usual. Web browser may crash because this program or third-party programs that come bundled with it may install browser extensions that are not listed in official extensions stores. I recommend you to remove pennybee.exe from your computer and run a full system scan with recommend anti-malware program.
