    Default Please define 'Click.GiftLoad'

    Hi

    I am seeing a lot of posts referring to Click.GiftLoad. A search at the Internet gives me the impression, that the concept originates from Spybot S&D. I haven't been able to find a definition of the concept.
    What is a Click.GiftLoad?

    Hello,

    Click.GiftLoad gets promoted via spam.
    Once executed it runs in background to have the computer connect to many websites in background and produce adclicks.

    Best regards

    Also, Click.Giftload often appears with a TDL variant. (google redirect, rootkit)

    If you cannot remove via your security application/s please start a topic in the Malware Removal Forum after reviewing "BEFORE You POST"(Please read this Procedure Before Requesting Assistance)
