In case you suddenly notice ads which are labeled as “Ads by Browser Good”, “Brought by Browser Good”, or anything like that, it is a clear sign that your PC has been infected with adware.
Browser Good is an advertising-supported application that was developed by the well-known SuperWeb LLC. The program is supposed to be “pulling the best deals”, or at least this is how it is described at its official website – browsergood.info. However, the reality is that no useful deals or any other beneficial content will be provided to you, thus removing Browser Good from your virtual machine is highly recommended.
On the official website of Browser Good you will notice a highlighted download button which however does not function. Of course, this is not surprising at all because the programs from the SuperWeb family only have websites to make users think that they are genuine, although it is clear that they are not.
Most often, Browser Good infiltrates your computer bundled with some free downloads which come from untrusted software distributing websites. This is common for all the majority of unreliable programs, thus in case you regularly download applications from such websites, it is certain that there is more than one unwanted program on your PC.
The main reason why ads by Browser Good are considered dangerous is the fact that the content they promote belongs to unknown third parties. These parties sponsor Browser Good, and SuperWeb in particular, to have their products and services presented to unsuspecting computer users. However, if you click on any of these ads, they might redirect you to suspicious web pages spreading malware or have to increase the web traffic.
The content promoted in each ad usually does not correspond to what you find on the websites, so you should not let yourself be tempted or deceived by exclusive deals or free system scan and remove Browser Good as soon as possible.
Luckily, the Browser Good removal is not a hard process. You can delete the program either manually, or automatically. The manual removal instructions are provided below this article. Though, even if you have completed the manual removal process, you still have to run a full scan of your PC in order to identify any registry leftovers or temporary files. You can do this by installing a reputable antimalware tool which will erase all the existing threats at once and will protect your system against malware at all times.
