Is isadd.dll safe or is this task spyware?



Purpose of isadd.dll:









File purpose and description:

Isadd.dll is a program that was most likely installed by you on your computer or may have been installed without your knowledge. This is a BHO that runs in your browser. This program has been reported by many as spyware or adware related. It is also known as a variant of the Zlob BHO malware or Zlob BHO trojan virus. I would remove this immediately if this was on my computer. You should also look to terminate it in your task list if you cannot remove this file. If you are running a BHO remover you can remove this from your browser, or you can simply disable BHO's if you are running Complete Cleanup. This may also be combined with other files on your copmuter, so check your system thoroughly if this file is found. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

General information:
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, isadd.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 isadd.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.
