What type of infection are you dealing with

Cleanbrowser Virus is a browser hijacker that possibly got into your PC when you were installing a free software. Free programs generally have some kind of offers added, and when people don’t uncheck them, they’re permitted to install. These types of infections are why it is important that you pay attention to what kind of software you install, and how you do it. Browser hijackers aren’t classified to be dangerous but they do perform some questionable activity. Your browser’s home web page and new tabs will be set to load the hijacker’s advertised page instead of your usual page. Your search engine will also be changed, and it may insert sponsored content among the real results. This is done so that the browser hijacker could reroute you to sponsored pages, and the page owners could earn income from traffic and ads. You need to be careful with those redirects because you could infect your system with malicious program if you were rerouted to a malicious website. The malicious program infection is not something you want to deal with as it could cause serious damage. Browser hijackers tend to pretend they have handy features but you could find proper plug-ins doing the same thing, which will not bring about weird reroutes. Redirect viruses also acquire data about the users, so that they could make more customized adverts. Suspicious third-parties could also get access to that info. And the sooner you uninstall Cleanbrowser Virus, the better. cleanbrowser5.png

How does it behave

It’s a known fact that hijackers travel along with free application bundles. We do not believe that you obtained it in any other way, as no one would install them willingly. Because people rarely pay attention to how they install programs, this method permits hijackers and similar threats to be spread. The items are hidden and if you rush, you have no chance of seeing them, and you not noticing them means they will be permitted to install. By choosing to use Default settings, you could be permitting permitting the installation of all kinds of unfamiliar programs, so it would be best if you do not use them. Advanced (Custom) mode, on the other hand, will make the offers visible. If you do not want to deal with unnecessary installations, ensure you always deselect the items. All you have to do is unmark the items, and you can then continue installing the free application. Even if these are low-level threats, they take some time to deal with and may be difficult to get rid of, so it is best if you prevent their threat initially. You are also suggested to not download from suspicious sources as they’re a great method to distribute malicious software.

If a redirect virus is installed, we really doubt you would not notice. Your home website, new tabs and search engine would be set to a strange web page without your explicit consent, and that is somewhat difficult to not notice. Well-known browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will possibly be affected. And unless you first delete Cleanbrowser Virus from the operating system, you will have to deal with the site loading every time your browser is launched. Attempting to modify the settings back would a wild-goose chase as the browser redirect will nullify them. There is also a likelihood changes would also be made to your default search engine, which would mean that whenever you use the browser’s address bar, results would created not from your set search engine but from the one the hijacker is promoting. Since the threat is intending to redirect you, it is likely you’ll run into advertisement links in the results. Browser redirects will reroute to certain sites so that owners may make revenue. When more users interact with advertisements, owners are able to make more income. If you press on those sites, you’ll be taken to entirely unrelated pages, where you won’t find relevant data. Some could seem real, if you were to make an inquiry for ‘anti-malware’, you could get results for websites endorsing dubious products but they may look completely real at first. Some of those web pages might even be malicious. Your browsing activity will also be overseen, with the intention of gathering data about what you’re interested in. Third-parties could also access the data, and it could be used to create adverts. Or the hijacker could use it to create more customized sponsored results. While it isn’t exactly the most harmful infection, we still highly encourage you remove Cleanbrowser Virus. Since the hijacker will no longer be there to stop you, after you carry out the process, make sure you restore your browser’s settings.
