FrameFox is an advertisement supported program by Duuqu Group OU and QwertyBox team. Once this adware is installed onto your personal computer various irritating banner advertisements start showing up on your search engines. For example, if your default search engine is, every time you will use it to find for information you will be introduced to suspicious advertisements. As our researchers have discovered, the malicious infection can affect Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. These are the most popular web browsers, which is why there is no surprise why the suspicious adware program is targeted at them. Overall, we recommend having FrameFox removed from the PC, and the following information will help you perform the operation.

Once the plugin is installed onto the browsers you may be presented with a Thank You pop-up indicating that you have acquired FrameFox extensions. If you have discovered this pop-up unexpectedly, you should not just ignore it and immediately check the extensions existing on your browsers. Of course, we recommend that you delete FrameFox if you discover it running without any authorization. You should also scan the PC and remove any other applications which may have been installed onto the computer. If the extension truly was installed without your knowledge, other more dangerous or simply undesirable programs (e.g. Teamviewer Beta) could easily have been installed as well. If you do not want to have your operating system corrupted by malware, you need to do whatever it takes to keep it away.

Even if they present alluring services and seem to promote legitimate freeware, you may risk your own virtual security by clicking on the displayed banner, pop-up or in-line adverts. Note that if the extension was set to discover your search history and reveal your personal interests, some of the displayed adverts could be extremely alluring. Nonetheless, you should refrain from trusting these ads. Once you are ready to delete FrameFox, you should firstly scan the PC with an authentic scanner to make sure you can identify all of the undesirable programs. After this you can follow the instructions below and remove any existing PUPs (potentially undesirable programs).
