BatBrowse - How to remove?
BatBrowse is an adware that can be installed to random systems without a user’s knowledge. The program displays tons of messages with coupons, discounts and other offers to purchase things at a less expensive price. You may think that it’s a useful feature that will help to save your money but soon you will find it very annoying. The program is categorized as potentially unwanted, and many computer users complain they got it without knowing how and where from.
Usually BatBrowse appears on your Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome after you install a wanted program from the Internet, in most cases it is the one free of charge. Some examples of the software that tend to have BatBrowse bundled are 1ClickDownload, Yontoo, Superfish, etc. To avoid installing applications that are bundled, you should always deselect pre-checked confirmation boxes at the installation steps of the main application. The best way to do that is by choosing a Custom installation.
The purpose of BatBrowse adware is to make money by redirecting users to commercial websites. Every ad contains sponsored links, so if you click on it, you will be immediately taken to the page you would not open otherwise. This way the application increases traffic of affiliate websites and boosts their page ranking in search results. As many other potentially unwanted applications, BatBrowse uses this unfair way to promote websites.
If you have noticed these ads popping up on your computer, remove BatBrowse as soon as you can. Run a full system scan with a reputable antispyware program, for example, Reimage, SpyHunter, hitman or any other legitimate tool. Don’t forget to upgrade it to its newest version to ensure the best detection and removal of unwanted programs.
