HeroCodec - How to remove?


HeroCodec is yet another fake codec pack. Before even beggining to explain how this thing works, I’ll say this: all the codecs you will ever need are available for free – may Google be your guide. HeroCodec, much like Luxe Codec XP and PC Codec Pack, uses malicious tactics both to spread and to sell. This parasite usually enters the system by using the Zlob trojan and tries to trick you into purchasing the codec pack by feeding you misleading info.

The HeroCodec implies that you can’t play certain types of media without owning it. This rogue uses popups and error messages to convey it’s message – you’ll see these when trying to play video and audio files.  The information is obviously false, but that evidently doesn’t stop people from buying it and buying HeroCodec in the process.

Do NOT download or buy HeroCodec and remove it immediatelly upon detection.

Manual HeroCodec removal


Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove HeroCodec, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Spyhunter or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.


It is impossible to list all file names and locations of modern parasites. You can identify remaining parasites, other HeroCodec infected files and get help in HeroCodec removal by using Spyhunter scanner.
