What is fiber.js and how to remove it?

Tell your friends:
Fiber.js is a JavaScript file that comes prepacked with Binkiland browser hijacker and other potentially unwanted programs (PUPs.) The file itself isn't malicious but it clearly indicates that your computer is infected with malware. The Windows Script Host error about missing fiber.js file usually appears every half an hour or so. It's really annoying but at the same time it reveals malware presence on your computer, so I guess it's a good thing. If you know anything about malware then you probably know that for the most part, it sneaks its way onto your PC thanks to it having been bundled with another piece of software or a file that you are downloading from the Internet. It could be an upgrade to something reputable and well known such as the VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) software Skype, or your anti-virus program or something less – necessary shall we say – such as desktop wallpapers or a peer to peer file share of a TV series or pop album. No, it really doesn't matter what you're installing or downloading - Potentially Unwanted Programs will just about piggy back off anything.

How do I continue to download files or programs without getting infected?

It is pretty unfeasible to say that we're never going to download some software or an app ever again – most of us would be forced to admit that it's hard to remember life before Skype and Candy Crush after all! So let's say you're 100% sure that you trust the company or programmer that is offering the program, file or application but you're still, quite rightly, worried about also installing a Potentially Unwanted Program, or PUP, along with it. Most potentially unwanted programs cause serious problems and fiber.js error is a good example.

The good news is that there are a number of ways that you can circumvent PUPs – or at least drastically reduce your chances of getting bitten by one. (If you'll excuse the pun.)

Here are some methods you can use to avoid PUPs and fiber.js errors
  • Read software license agreements carefully. Potentially Unwanted Programs – because they're not technically malware – are usually mentioned in the fine print. Watch out for any check boxes which have been pre-checked in favor of an extra component and make sure you are fully aware of what's about to be installed.
  • Make sure that your PC's operating system and security programs are bang up to date by installing Microsoft's latest security patches. In the same vein your anti-malware should also be the very latest version. In addition, you also need to ensure that you have the latest versions of any other software that's running on your machine. Check the aforementioned Skype if you have it, as well as iTunes, Adobe and any programs that enable you to view media files.
  • Finally when you are downloading something try and use the publisher's website and not a third party one as security is liable to be more lax on a site that is not pushing its own products
