Trojan:Win32/AproposMedia is a software suite that is installed via a third party application, which may bundle AproposMedia as a toolbar. It may also be installed via drive-by downloads or through pop-up advertisements.
Trojan:Win32/AproposMedia displays pop-up advertisements in Internet Explorer and tracks and reports user habits. It may update itself or download and execute other files from the Internet without user knowledge or consent. Some variants of AproposMedia also use a system driver to make its detection and removal more difficult. A user may experience a decrease in Internet speed if AproposMedia is installed in the computer.
