Bredolab Removal

Trojan Bredolab is a malicious software application that forces its way on to the user’s system and attempts to install other parasites on the system. Also known as Win32 Bredolab, this Trojan reaches user systems through spam email attachments which come with blackhat social engineering methods which are used to trick users into downloading and running a file that will install the Trojan Bredolab on the computer.

Once installed, Bredolab makes some entries in the Windows registry, creates some new files and folders and injects dangerous processes in to the list of running processes. Most annoying is the ability that the Trojan Bredolab has to run undetected in the background. Most security software will have a hard time detecting it. Normally, Bredolab downloads and installs fake security software which will in turn perform fake scans of the system and return results that warn of dangerous infections. These false security programs ask the user to pay for the ‘full’ version of the program in order to properly scan the system.

Meanwhile the Trojan Bredolab resides on the computer, undetected by any other application. It can also download and install adware, key-loggers and web browser toolbars. These malicious actions make Win32 Bredolab a dangerous Trojan which should be removed at the first chance you get.

Manual Bredolab Removal Guide

In order to remove Bredolab, the following process should be stopped:

  • file.exe

The next step is to unregister the following DLL file:

  • msansspc.dll

The next and final step is to delete the files and folders created by Win32 Bredolab. For this, delete the following files and folders:

  • file0.exe

Once these steps have been completed, Bredolab has been completely removed from your computer. However, manual removal of Bredolab is not recommended for inexperienced users, as any wrong move during removal could cause Bredolab to damage the system and repair itself.
