How Bing.vc gets on your PC?

Bing.vc deceptively installs on users computers. It uses doubtful method called “bundled installation”. Formally it is legal.

Besides, users skip advertising windows thinking this is installation routine. As a result Bing.vc takes over all browsers secretly. That is rather hard to remove Bing.vc manually, and we recommend you to use Norton or SpyHunter Anti-Malware.
