How to Remove EbookBrowse from Firefox (IE/Chrome)?

By | May 26, 2015

What is EbookBrowse?

EbookBrowse is a potentially unwanted adware which is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. This program is promoted to offer its users enjoyable browsing. However, it doesn’t keep its promise. Actually, it is totally a trouble maker because it can change your browser settings and windows startup. Once added, EbookBrowse may generate various ads on the website that you visit. So your internet browsing may be disturbed by numerous banners, pop-ups, or underlined keywords that are titled with “Ads by EbookBrowse ” or other. This adware can also  replace your default start page with http://ebookbrowser.net and the default search provider with EbookBrowse Search.

EbookBrowse can stealthily add itself to your browser because it often comes bundled with other free program downloads from the internet. That is, this program may load by default when you install other programs like video recording/streaming, download-managers, game apps, or PDF creators. Once this program gets in your PC, it will soon cause browser redirect or browser hijacker. What’s worse, the random homepage and search engine offered by this program can stay in your browser even if you uninstall the programs that have bundled with EbookBrowse. And your browser’s default settings will not be restored, either. Thus, you need to remove all the unwanted programs from your PC.

To prevent your computer from being infected with this browser extension, you need to mind your online activities and always opt for advanced or custom option to install new software. Please don’t forget to disable all the additional tools in your installation program.
