BrowseMark - How to remove?
What is BrowseMark?
BrowseMark is a browser extension that can be added to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. The program is presented as an improvement to your browsing experience that will help you to save a lot of your money when you shop on the Internet. It says it delivers the best deals from the best shopping websites and provides various coupons as well as discounts for your purchases. Unfortunately, BrowseMark ads can get very annoying and interrupt your browsing without giving you an option to stop them.
BrowseMark was designed by SuperWeb LLC, which is known for dozens of other programs like this one. The adware enters computers bundled with various freeware applications that you can download from the Internet. To avoid such attachments, make sure you follow the installation process, despite of what you are downloading to your system. Usually you will have to deselect several check marks next to indications about additional downloads.
If you have already noticed BrowseMark ads when you browse the Internet, do not ignore them. You should never keep such browser extensions, as they can spy on your browsing habits and even violate your privacy. Usually they have access to your search queries, browsing history and may even track your login information as well as other personal details. If you don’t want to be involved into more marketing related projects, remove BrowseMark as soon as you detect it.

Using Control Panel to remove the main BrowseMark components and installers

- Look for BrowseMark and /or similar looking items on the list of programs. By default, I recommend removing Yontoo, WebCake, anything “savings” or “coupon” related.
