Update-browser.org Removal Guide

Do you know what update-browser.org is?

Update-browser.org is the website which we do not recommend that you open if you do not want to come across the suspicious notification. This notification is only displayed for you in order to convince you that your browser is outdated and you need to install an update which you can access via this website. You should not believe any word of this application because its main purpose is to spread a wide range of malicious software, including advertising-supported programs and other potentially unwanted applications. Unfortunately, this fake notification might appear on all the most popular websites including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, which means that many computer users might be exposed to it and believe the fake message.

Even though this notification looks rather decent because it displays the icons of the legitimate browsers, you should not believe it and definitely not click the OK button to confirm the process. If you do so, you will notice that Premium Installer has been launched. It will show you which programs are going to be installed on your system. These include PC Optimizer Pro, Shopper-Pro, YTDownloader, and a variety of other applications. As you can see, update-browser.org domain is created in order to distribute various unwanted programs by deceiving computer users.
