Unico Browser is a potentially unwanted program that might enter your computer with a number of other suspicious applications. The application functions as a web browser, but it is very aggressive in asserting itself as your default web browsing tool. It is recommended that you remove Unico Browser from your system to avoid potential security issues. When you delete this program, you should also scan your PC with a licensed antispyware tool just to check whether there are more unwanted applications on-board. Your computer’s security should be your utmost priority.
Quite a lot of users do not realize that Unico Browser could be related to security issues at first because this application looks and behaves like a genuine web browser. Our research shows that the program is closely related to BoBrowser and CrossBrowser, both of which are potentially unwanted applications, too. What’s more, you can easily download Unico Browser from unicobrowser.com, but the thing is that users would not be complaining about this application if they had installed it willingly, now would they? Therefore, this allows us to conclude that Unico Browser gets distributed by other methods, most of which are not as transparent as one would wish.
It is very likely that you have downloaded and installed Unico Browser accidentally bundled with freeware applications. You do not necessarily have to download a freeware application from a third-party file sharing website. Sometimes the installer files are hiding behind pop-up ads on random websites that offer to install a Flash player update or to scan your computer with a “reliable online scanner.” Needless to say, these claims should not be trusted, as clicking random pop-up ads eventually leads to adware and even malware infections.
Unico Browser itself is not that beneficial either. For one thing, when this browser gets installed on your computer, it automatically removes Google Chrome desktop and quick launch shortcuts, settings itself as your default browser. Then it adds shortcuts to YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, Wikipedia, and Google Search on your desktop. What’s more, if you install Unico Browser bundled with freeware, once launched, the browser will display commercial advertisements that will not allow you to surf the Internet properly.
Needless to say, Unico Browser is not a direct computer infection, but you should not take this application lightly, especially if you did not intend to have it in the first place. All the unwanted programs must be removed immediately, and you can uninstall Unico Browser via Control Panel.
To be absolutely sure that all the potentially unwanted files have been terminated, please scan your computer with a legitimate antispyware application. Also, if you need any assistance with adware or malware removal, do let us know by leaving a comment.
