Have you encountered update-browser.org in any way? Do you see a pop-up which claims that you have to hurry to update your browser? We do not recommend doing what it says because this domain has been made for one purpose only – to spread various additional software throughout the internet. If you are one of those who believed this bogus pop-up message, it is very probable that you have installed a wide range of freeware. If you had been more cautious, you would have seen the note in a small font stating that the update is not related to the publishers of your browser in any way. As you can see, update-browser.org itself is not created in order to update your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Opera browsers; its main function is to lure you into downloading various additional programs without you even intending it.

Update-browser.org domain not only produces the message (see below) which states that your browser is outdated, but also displays several reasons why it is important to update your browser. As it states, if you update your browser, you will be able to protect your system from various infections, browse the web more quickly as well as enjoy new features and extensions. However, not everything is so perfect; if you click the OK button, you will install such programs as PC Optimizer, Shopper-Pro, and YTDownloader onto your computer. For this matter, Premium Installer is used. You will definitely notice that your browsers have not been updated, but various additional programs are running on your PC instead. As you can see, this domain does not do anything beneficial; it only provides you with links to the official websites of different browsers.

Browser Update!

It is recommended that you update your browser

to the latest version to view this page.

Please update to continue.

We definitely recommend removing all those programs that have been installed without your direct permission because if you keep them on your system, you are going to notice various annoying activities, for instance, various irritating advertisements will be produced every time you browse the web. It is especially true if you do not remove such unwanted programs as YTDownloader and Shopper-Pro. Even though they might look like useful programs, they are going to cause you more inconvenience than any tangible benefit.

If you want to remove all those additional programs one by one, you can use manual removal instructions which you will find below. However, it is not clear which programs have been installed on your system; thus, we recommend acquiring a reliable antimalware tool like SpyHunter.
