Do you know what ViperDJ is?
ViperDJ is supposed to be a music mixer; however, it seems that it does not only function that way. Unfortunately for unlucky users who have this application on their computers, it can start displaying third-party advertisements. What’s more, this program also installs malware infections, such as toolbars and adware. Since it can also arrive together with other malware programs, it is more than likely that you have seen third-party ads while you were trying to surf the web. It is also possible that your browser settings have changed without your knowledge. All in all, you can still save your computer from more security-related issues if you act now. We suggest that you remove ViperDJ because it is a questionable tool that can create more headaches than fun time.
It always pays to research the software you want to have on your computer. For example, in this case, if you do a web search in Google knowing the name of this app, ViperDJ, guess what you will find: A whole results page of how to delete ViperDJ and its advertisements. If you do this search, you will most probably not try to even think about downloading this suspicious software. However, let us suppose you end up “magically” on its official web page at viper.dj and you download it. Unfortunately, even the official installer contains malware programs. You should not tolerate a program on your computer that brings potentially harmful applications on-board. That is one of the reasons why we believe that you should remove ViperDJ.ViperDJ screenshot
