Outdated Browser Detected
If you have found a browser notification which says “Outdated Browser Detected”, it does not necessarily mean that you have to rush to update your browser. The bogus warning “Outdated Browser Detected” is an online scam which is aimed at deceiving Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox users. The fake update is promoted on a malicious webpage which suggests downloading the latest version of your browser. If you pay attention to the disclaimer, you will find a statement that the distributor of the update is not affiliated with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox, depending on the browser that you use. Do not download the suspicious update because you can safely update your internet browser using only the official website of the service.
“Outdated Browser Detected”, or the so-called latest version, is downloaded through Premium Installer, which also causes the installation of Optimizer Pro. The application is said to be able to diagnose and fix system errors for a particular price. Optimizer Pro, also known as PC Utilities Pro – Optimizer Pro is said to have a capability to send error reports to Microsoft, check performance settings, fix invalid shortcuts, and so on. We recommend that you remove this application from the system because it may hamper the performance of the system by using a lot of resources.
“Outdated Browser Detected” can also cause the installation of a browser extension. More specifically, you may find that Incredibar toolbar is installed on the new version of the browser and that the search engine is hijacked. It has been found that the “Outdated Browser Detected” scam usually installs some older version of the browser, and if you want to use the same browser, you should remove the malicious one and download another one.
The “Outdated Browser Detected” scam does not add functionally to your browser. On the contrary, it installs an unreliable software program and replaces your present browser with a modified one, which also does not help to enhance your browsing.
If you want to remove “Outdated Browser Detected”, you should close the browser or the tab once you access the malicious website. But if you have agreed to update the browser, for example, your Google Chrome, what you have to do now is remove all those programs that have been installed by the scam. Since manual removal takes time and it may be insufficient to uninstall the unwanted programs, we recommend that you implement a spyware removal tool. Install SpyHunter to have all those unwanted programs removed and the system protect. The application will fight various threats off and will also save your time by running automatic systems scans. Act right now if you want to get rid of the unwanted toolbar, fix your browser, and browse the Internet safely.
