This page aims to help you remove iVidi Ads. These iVidi Ads removal instructions work for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer, as well as every version of Windows.

E-mail attachments, browser redirects,i.e, browser hijackers, infected files, random and excessive pop-up ads, the popular internet browsers, software bundling, and many others are a main source of distribution of iVidi Ads and main signs that the malware is present and has gotten into your computer.


Though, many people still believe and are quite convinced that it is mostly harmless, they are wrong. Like it or not, iVidi Ads is a virus just like any other virus and is as dangerous as any other malware. Even the best of anti-virus programs don’t cover and secure your computer on a 100%. Hackers,  unfortunately, could be considered as some of the smartest IT guys out there and they take full advantage of that.

iVidi Ads could be sitting in your inbox as you read this article. It might be in your spam folder, trash folder, sent items, or most likely it is sitting nice and warmly in your inbox. It could be camouflaged or obvious. Sometimes we ignore the obvious by focusing on the complicated, or we alone make things harder than they  appear. Hackers, again, know that and use such techniques to accomplish their malicious purposes. iVidi Ads could be cloaked under the name of one of your best pen pals. The ‘geniuses’  could have easily hacked your friend’ e-mail account and now to be spreading viruses through it. They  also are capable of following and recording your internet browsing and/or e-mailing habits and will use those against you. Be aware of what comes to your inbox  and what you open and/or save from it. It is not fatal if you download an infected attachment, but it’s better not to. The removal guide we provide, however, will show you how to get rid of the virus.

iVidi Ads likes to come as a bundle. It also likes company so it may come in multiple variations, which in turn will make it harder to detect and uninstall. And it will also cause more damage to your device and files. How is  this possible? Well, if you are used to use the custom/default downloading settings and you quickly go through the process by selecting boxes without thinking or paying any attention — let’s admit it, most of us do that daily! —  then, chances are you will end up with something called “software bundling”. This means that you will have more than just the one file you initially desired to download.  iVidi Ads will be hidden somewhere in between. What could you do? Well, you can create the habit of using the advanced downloadable settings. That way you will have a better grip of what comes into your system and what not. Best if you could individualize them according to the files you want to load and their original sources.

iVidi Ads could tell you “Hello! I am here” by a random opening of websites, tabs, windows, etc. Imagine that one day you are anxiously engaged with your work, using Chrome per say, and suddenly Firefox windows begin to open up, additional websites in your present browser without you typing the URL, windows open and close automatically. How would you feel? One option is that you will be shocked; second is that you will simply lift your hands off the keyboard and say: “OMG!”; third, you might think that you’re going crazy or that Casper the little ghost has entered the room and is playing games with you. All three options have some truth in it, but wouldn’t you feel better if you say: “Aha! Somehow my PC has gotten infected with iVidi Ads and I know how to remove it”. Then, you pull out the removal guide, follow the steps described in there, detect the virus and uninstall it. All in once and without spending a minute further panicking!

This is just some general and basic information about the malware. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us!
