Transponder is a BHO adware program created by Mindset Interactive that creates pop-up banners that open when surfing the Internet. Transponder is bundled with a number of different programs, e.g., AudioGalaxy Satellite, Internet Accelerator and NetTurbo. It monitors your activity and sends the information to its server to create targeted pop-up advertisements based on your recent searches. Transponder has the ability to update automatically and install other software, making it a double threat.
Transponder reports back to its servers with URLs you have visited and information you have entered on forms, etc. If you use Outlook Express, your information could be sent to Mindset Interactive and sold to spammers.
With your personal information at risk, it is highly recommended that you remove Transponder immediately. A quick, free ZookaWare PC Cleaner scan will detect not only Transponder, but other malicious threats that may be lurking in the background. Don’t risk your private information being spread across the Internet; get protected today.
