Currently Notice: Undefined variable: incprefix in /data/www/xblock/product_show.php on line 123 25,860,543 Spy Software Busted!
Full Name:
Type: Adware
Also Known As: IEPlugin
Created By: Bulla
Danger Level: 2
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.
Official Description: Bulla is a Browser Helper Object for Internet Explorer. It tries to search all pages you view in IE and replaces banner adverts from the page with adverts from its controlling servers.

Also known as
IEPlugin, from the filename of the BHO DLL. This is a generic name; Bulla has nothing to do with the parasite known as IEPlugin.
Manual Removal: There is no uninstall feature. Spybot S&D update 06-21 and Ad-Aware reflist 032-23.06.02 can remove Bulla.

Manual removal
Bulla installs a file called IEPlugin.dll into your System directory. Before you can delete it you must deregister it. Enter the following command in a command (DOS) window, for Windows 95/98/Me:

"%WinDir%\SYSTEM\regsvr32.exe" /u "%WinDir%\System\IEPlugin.dll"
Or, for Windows NT/2000/XP:

regsvr32 /u "%WinDir%\System32\IEPlugin.dll"
Then restart the computer and open the System(32) directory in the Windows folder. Delete the IEPlugin.dll file. You can also delete the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\IEPlugin from the registry (run'regedit') to clean up if you wish
