What Is Tube Dimmer?

Tube Dimmer states that it is a “free application that allows you to turn off the lights when watching videos on your favorite web sites. When Tube Dimmer is running you will find a new light switch button on eligible web sites.” However, users complain this program recently. Let’s see what users complain about:

Tube Dimmer 2.6.43 continually attaches itself to my Firefox even after I removed it! I do not want it, I did not ask for; yet it keeps attaching itself. This type of Malware or behavior only angers me more. I want your product (Tube Dimmer 2.6.43) out of my PC for good!

I messed up and ended up downloading this thing called Tube Dimmer which I cannot get rid of. Can anyone help me with this please? I use Mozilla FIrefox.

That is what users come across. Once the Tube Dimmer is installed, the first problem that users encounter is the browser hijacker. Users’ homepages will be redirected to web sites related to Tube Dimmer. Users may download it accidently, or it is installed when users download or update free programs from the Internet. Other distribution ways can be hacked web sites, suspicious links, or spam email attachments. Users have to be careful when they browse the Internet.

Tube Dimmer malware drops malicious files and registry entries to the infected system once installed. It also installs malicious toolbar and add-ons to browsers so that it can take control of the browsers. Popular browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox can be affected. Tube Dimmer changes browser settings such as homepages, DNS settings and default search engine. Therefore, users cannot surf the Internet normally. Users have to remove Tube Dimmer as soon as they can before it causes other computer problems.

Why Tube Dimmer Cannot Be Removed by Anti-virus Programs?

Tube Dimmer sneaks into the compromised computer without users’ permission, while it seems that users cannot uninstall Tube Dimmer with anti-virus programs. That is because Tube Dimmer hides its files deeply behind the system, and changes the files names and locations very often to avoid being detected by anti-virus programs. Another reason is that Tube Dimmer pretends to be a useful program and comes to the target computer with other programs together; therefore, anti-virus programs will not consider it as a computer threat at all. In this situation, users have to remove Tube Dimmer manually.
