2014-08-25

If you use Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Google Chrome and see an ad that says "Wajam Ads", your computer has a process like “Wajam Internet Enhancer Service.exe”, ” WajamHttpServer.exe”, or ” Wajam Internet Enhancer.exe”. This will slow down your browsing speed and means your computer is infected with the malicious program Wajam.


 

What is "Wajam":

Wajam is a browser plug-in that hijacks your browser and embeds unwelcome ads in Google and other sites. Many users have reported to us that the large amount of Wajam pop-ups affects their user experience.
