File purpose and description:
BAE.dll is a DLL module and is also a BHO module (Browser helper program), and it most likely was installed by you on your computer. Always check the file location and folder location which is shown below, as this is a way to verify you have the correct file. Often spyware or virus writers use similiar names in hopes to fool you into thinking its a good file, but they place the spyware in other disk locations with the similiar or same name. This file is a browser redirect file, meaning that when a webpage is not found it will automatically redirect you to a different location. Although this is considered a safe file, I don't like it. Anything that sends me to a different page automatically (whether a page is found or not), is something I always remove. Basically its drawing traffic to an a different site instead of letting me choose to go to a different site myself whenever a page isn't found. This file is considered to be safe, but I would remove it if it were on my computer. This runs in your IE web browser as a BHO. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)
Actual file or task name: (Note that you can view the entire list here)
This is a DLL module.
File or folder location:
This BAE.dll file will be found on your disk at c:\google\BAE.dll or C:\Program Files\Google\Google_BAE\BAE.dll
Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, bae.dll may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of bae.dll on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
