BocaEdit Removal Guide

Do you know what BocaEdit is?

BocaEdit is categorized as an “adware helper”, an adware application that users are generally advised to remove because it might be as malicious as the adware it supports. Usually these “helpers” work to support the main adware application and to carry out secondary tasks like downloading updates or transferring data. BocaEdit is an application which is used to reinstall deleted infections that have entered your system via InsallRex installers. This adware helper will do everything in its power to protect adware from termination, and thus prolong all the negative effects adware might have on your Internet surfing habits or the overall computer health.

BocaEdit rarely spreads alone so it is highly unlikely that you install this application to your computer separately. Usually it might be downloaded from pirated and unreliable third-party sites bundled with programs of suspicious nature; this is how generally adware is distributed. If you have installed any software from unreliable sites, and started seeing any bothersome pop-ups or banners, and other forms of commercial distractions, know that BocaEdit is already on your computer. Avoid permitting potentially dangerous programs getting on your operating system in the future by following these tips: try to bypass pirate sites as the main source for your software and remember to be attentive during the installation process because you might easily uncheck all the undesired additional software on the installation wizard. You can check the program list that you can access via Control Panel to see if the application it actually on your computer. But remember, it might be only a part of some bigger adware package; therefore, you might need to locate the main adware application.

Thankfully, we already know that BocaEdit affiliates itself mostly with infections based on the MultiPlug engine. These might be EZDownloder, Oprimizer Pro, UniDeals, and many other unwanted applications; if you already have any MultiPlug applications, please remove them as soon as you can. However, remember, you might need to delete Boca Edit first as it might restore these applications after you restart your computer or reopen your Internet browser. Some less experienced computer users might find this who-comes-first issue too disorienting; hence, we strongly advice to utilize trustworthy antimalware removal software which will detect and remove all the potentially dangerous content on your operating system. If you chose to delete BocaEdit from Control Panel, you might miss additional malicious components; remember, automatic removal should take precedence over the manual.
