Mega Browse

Mega Browse is an advertisement supported program which can be installed onto your Windows operating system in order to enhance web browsing activities. The application is installed onto Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers only, and the main objective behind it is to present supposedly beneficial virtual coupons. Do you want to acquire a program which promises to help you save money while browsing the web? If you are interested in this, you might have downloaded the program from megabrowse.biz already. Is this the source you have installed the extension from? If yes, you must have acquired the application a long time ago because the installer is not longer active. Regardless of the way the plugin was activated onto your personal computer, we recommend that you remove Mega Browse in order to avoid the virtual risks which may be related to this advertisement supported program.

As soon as Mega Browse is installed onto your browsers, MegaBrowse.FirstRun.exe, utilMegaBrowse.exe and updateMegaBrowse.exe are activated to run in the background. These executable components enable all of the processes of the suspicious extension. This allows it to track your virtual activity and learn what content you might be interested in. Needless to say, this is meant to help the affiliated parties to produce more interesting offers and advertisements. We strongly recommend that you ignore any of the displayed pop-ups and banner ads because they might hide links to websites you do not want to visit. For example, do you want to land on a corrupted page promoting a fake installer after clicking on a seemingly harmless pop-up rushing you to update your media player? We also recommend that you stay away from the adverts presented by Rinkela, LizardLink, GoingGo and similar adware applications.

If you choose to delete Mega Browse manually, you need to be extra cautious with all of the removal processes. It has been discovered that it is not enough to delete the application via the Control Panel in order to disable its activity. As our researchers have found out, various registry entries could remain active if you are not cautious with Mega Browse removal. Due to this, we strongly recommend that you follow the manual removal guides below and then install legitimate malware removal software. Authentic programs (e.g., SpyHunter) will help you delete the remaining adware components and will assist with further protection of your Windows system and web browsers.

    This doesn't completely remove it. It comes back. A registry entry remains under software\mega Browser.
    Starting in safe mode will allow you to remove the contents of mega browser in program files, but its utility remains in services.
