KeepVid is a pop-up virus that is able to pop up banners or ads in your computer. Some users also told us that their homepages as well as default search engine were changed. KeepVid spreads mainly through spam E-mails and third party programs. So here DooFix experts recommend that when you receive a spam from strangers, you should remove them at once instead of opening them. Besides, when you install a program, you should do it step by step so that you can uncheck a lot of unnecessary stuff, such as plug-ins or adwares.


if your computer is infected by this program, it must be a terrible experience because this threat can bring tons of ads or other information that you do not need to your computer. Most those ads or links are malicious or unreliable. If you click one of them, you will be redirected to dangerous sites that contain viruses or certain threats. Without your permission, KeepVid may also install somethings in your browser, mostly toolbars or plug-ins and those toolbars or plug-ins could bring more ads to your PC. When KeepVid runs at backstage, it creates junks in your computer because it needs to download them to your computer. Browser’s setting and other settings could also be changed. When you have enough of it and try to remove it via antivirus programs, you will find that nothing is found by antivirus programs, which means KeepVid hides so deep that even antivirus programs fail to detect them. Therefore, it is suggested that you should remove it manually.And here we have detailed instructions, if you are not familiar with computer, please do not hesitate to contact our professional to help you.
