What is bzdap.exe and how to remove it?

What is bzdap.exe?

Bzdap.exe belongs to Bobyzoom adware. Multiple anti-virus engines have detected malware in bzdap.exe, for example AdWare.Win32.PennyBee and WS.Reputation.1. A more in depth look at how it can affect you reveals that this adware installs malicious web browser extensions and displays adverts on your computer. Of course, not all variants of this adware are the same and different models can do different things to your computer. This particular variant is designed to display ads by bobyzoom and install more adware on your computer but they can also prevent certain anti-virus programs from finding their web browsers, or other installed adware or potentially unwanted programs. The scary thing is that this list of what it can do isn't even complete - there are many other types of bzdap.exe out there and I strongly suggest installing the best anti-malware program you can find today. Some variants of this adware are digitally signed and have proper file information but still try to hide their presence on the system. Needles to say, I recommend you to remove bzdap.exe and related malware from your computer. Run a full system scan with anti-malware software.
