Could You Be Infected And Not Even Know It?

Your computer could be trying to tell you something – are you listening? Learn everything you need to know about “Bug Splat.exe”. First off, what is it? 

Bug splat.exe was created initially by engineers to help track and identify issues when a program crashes. It is a .exe file developed by Macromedia, associated with flash 5.0 for Windows Operating Systems. Learn what to do if you are seeing error messages related to this below. 

What is an .exe file?

An .exe file is an executable file. This means it needs to be executed in order to be launched. Hackers will often use .exe files to disguise benign viruses and trick the user into downloading a Trojan. These are often delivered through spam emails or pop-ups from untrusted or malicious websites. These infected .exe files will eventually corrupt, and even replace, existing .exe files in your operating system.

Not all .exe files are bad!

It is important to remember that an .exe file is just one type of file – FixMeStick uses an .exe file. When you launch it you are instructing your computer to go through a step-by-step process. Without .exe files you wouldn’t be able to use any of the programs on your computer
