Type: Adware
Also Known As: XupiterToolbar sqwire OrbitExplorer
Created By: Xupiter
Danger Level: 4
Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Comment: Apart from the hijacking and added links, the software will show pop-under advertisements when its controlling servers direct it to.

Xupiter consists of an Internet Explorer toolbar containing link buttons to the search engine at xupiter.com and a task run at Windows startup which downloads updates to the software and may launch pop-ups. It also contains functionality to periodically hijack your home page and search settings to point to xupiter.com, and add links pointing to xupiter.com to your bookmarks.
Information URL: http://www.Xupiter.com
Manual Removal: Open the registry (from the Start menu, click Run and enter regedit) and find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Delete the 'XupiterStartup' entry.

cd "%WinDir%\System"
