Browser Hero

If you have Browser Hero installed on your computer you are either concerned about your web security or you do not even know how it got there in the first place. Whichever case is true for you, we recommend removing this unreliable application from your system because it is not what it seems to be.

1stBrowser

1stBrowser is yet another dubious application that has been categorized as a potentially unwanted program due to its questionable functionality. On its official website, 1stBrowser is advertised as an application that is great to use while shopping online, as it should provide you with the best discount deals, and as an excellent tool to make the web surfing experience more personalized.

As the name of Web Safeguard shows, it is the program that promises to protect PCs from malicious software. The program claims that you will never visit untrustworthy websites ever again because it will inform you when you are about to enter the page that contains malicious software. Even though the installation of Web Safeguard seems to be the easiest way to protect the system from threats, we do not recommend doing that because Web Safeguard is not a trustworthy application.

Netmahal.com

Netmahal.com is not a new browser hijacker, but it continues terrorizing Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer users.
