The ""Browser Address Error Redirector"" is a fancy name for a module that sends Internet Explorer automatically to a predetermined location if you enter an invalid Web address. While some may consider this a convenience, others find it a nuisance as it causes the user to be sent to a specific page without their consent. These sorts of add-ons are often preinstalled on PCs from big companies (like Dell), which are compensated by the sites to which the requests are redirected.
If you want a detailed security rating about your BAE.dll (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager.
Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk.
If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection!

|All comments about BAE.dll: |
| It came preloaded with my dell pc Rob|
| It takes a Google 404 page and directs it to a Dell Page stating the page has a problem and suggestions to correct. But it can be exploited by spyware to get past your firewalls See also: Link James T Ford|
| I don't know anything about this file DC|
| Customers have reported being re-directed to google's customer 404. After removing this file, this activity ceases. We blame Dell. |
| This .dll file is a Browser Helper Object (BHO) that runs automatically every time you start your Internet browser. BHOs are not stopped by personal firewalls, because they are identified by the firewall as your browser itself. BHOs are often used by adware and spyware. Tim|
| Came with my Dell computer with Windows Vista. (Internet Explorer 7) As James T Ford says i believe that it can be explotied by spyware to get past your firewall Dogg|
| used my by spyware to go by my firewall laurent|
| I find it offensive. If I wanted to search, I would search. I don't need dell trying to "help" me find a site, just give me the 404! kr|
| It's just another Dell attempt to earn money from clicks. It basically bypasses your setting to "Do not search from the address bar" and searches anywyay. Most of the "related links" you see are not at all related to anything you entered in the address bar, so this is nothing more than advertising/hijacking. Disable it under "Manage Add-ons".

| also found on Packard Bell computers Suricat|
| I can't see how to disable using "Manage Add-ons" like Rodger Fields suggested. I use firefox if that make any difference. Thanks J.Goodwin|
| My Gateway used it to launch an advert for some back-up service on every boot. Annoying! I used 'autoruns' from MS sysinternals to stop it from auto-launching. Problem solved. See also: Link Jim Miller|
| removed by uninstalling Browser Address Redirector (on Gateway) G|
| Dell spyware cashing in on your mistypes Rob Nob|
| Disabling the Dell add-on didn't stop it so I renamed the file to bae.dll-old Andy|
| Browser Helper Object. Found on Packard Bell, i removed it, no problems! Finnishguy|
| AVG security defines it as malware with a 4* rating. and has placed within the vault. This event was originally located on the Google desktop folders, I guess for the same reasons already indicated above (to replace 404 notices). Renato|
