BrowseBurst Ads removal instructions
What is BrowseBurst?
BrowseBurst is a potentially unwanted browser add-on developed by SuperWeb LLC. claiming to enhance users' Internet browsing experience by enabling coupons and comparison shopping. Although this added functionality may seem legitimate, users should be aware that this plugin is categorized as adware. This potentially unwanted application is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and installs on browsers without users' consent via a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling'. After successful infiltration, this plug-in generates various advertisements, including transitional, interstitial, text link, search, banner, and full page ads. Furthermore, BrowseBurst tracks users' Internet browsing activity by recording IP addresses, URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, browser types, operating systems, unique identifier numbers, and other information.
The BrowseBurst plugin is just one of many rogue browser extensions developed by SuperWeb LLC and having this potentially unwanted application installed on your Internet browsers may lead to serious privacy issues, identity theft, or malware infections. This add-on is identical to other browser add-ons developed by this company including, for example, BrowseDen, BringStar, or Lookinglink. This company releases identical browser plug-ins under different named to avoid detection by legitimate anti-virus or anti-spyware software. You are therefore advised to eliminate BrowseBurst from your Internet browser/s.
Internet users should be aware that the majority of current freeware download websites such as soft32.com, download.com, amongst many others, use 'download managers' to monetize their free services. Download managers are small programs offering installation of advertised browser add-ons along with the chosen free program. By recklessly downloading and installing free software, users may inadvertently infect their computers with various adware and browser hijackers. In order to avoid installation of BrowseBurst, or any other adware, pay close attention while downloading and installing freeware. If your download is managed by a download client (download manager), decline installation of any advertised browser plug-ins. When installing downloaded programs, choose the 'Advanced' or 'Custom' installation settings, rather than 'Typical' or 'Quick' - this will reveal hidden installation options, including installation of bundled adware. Users who observe 'Ads by BrowseBurst', 'Powered by BrowseBurst', or 'BrowseBurst Deals' advertisements when surfing the Internet, should follow this removal guide to eliminate BrowseBurst adware from their Internet browser/s.
