Elex Technology Co. is the creator of 337Games Virus; however, the name which is more likely to be linked to the potentially undesirable program is 337 Technology Limited. This is a company the suspicious 337Games.exe is signed by, and malware researchers link it to V9 redirect virus and another potentially undesirable program Yet Another Cleaner as well. These programs should be deleted as quickly as you remove the Webssearches.com hijacker. This is a browser infection which comes bundled with 337Games Virus. Even though in most cases the hijacker simply provides an easy-access link to 337.com, it could also assist the installation of the so-called virus. Even though a hijacker is a much bigger problem, the PUP can display third-party advertisements, and these might be unreliable.
