After many years of browser wars, one browser has emerged victorious — it is called TheBrowser. TheBrowser is so good that it does not need an attractive name or so it seems. The reality is that this browser has been classified as a potentially unwanted program that you ought to remove. Like many browsers of its kind, this particular application is based on Google’s Chromium platform, so TheBrowser looks almost identical to Chrome. However, it is not reliable as Chrome. In fact, this browser is the opposite of reliable. It comes with an unreliable search engine that might subject you to potentially malicious content because it is unlikely that this program’s developers have any filters for that. Please read this description to find out more.
This browser was created and released by a software developer called Goobzo. This is an unreliable developer known to have also released a browser hijacker called Search Module. TheBrowser has its website at www-internetbrowser.com. However, this website only contains promotional slogans and no download button even though it says “Download the free, fast and lightweight web browser.” It seems that the download function is no longer active on this website. Nevertheless, this does not mean that TheBrowser has no means of dissemination. While researching this program, we found that it can come in software bundles, but not just any software bundles. It comes in malicious bundles that contain various unreliable programs, such as ShopperPro and YTDownloader that were classified as adware, Search Module — the aforementioned browser hijacker, and other programs.
A software bundle should ask you whether you want to install TheBrowser and the aforementioned malware. If not, then you should find a section called advanced/custom settings and remove it from the installation wizard. However, you fail to do so then it will be installed. This browser is not malicious, but its search engine certainly is. www-mysearch.com is also known as a browser hijacker, because it replaces the homepage of Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
Our research suggests that www-mysearch.com can display modified, and thus, unreliable search results that can contain ads and promotions that can redirect you to malicious websites. Note that www-mysearch.com’s appearance is identical to Bing.com and it even redirects to Bing.com with the added commands to display advertisements from third-party servers. Also, this search engine is set to collect non-personally identifiable information about you, such as your browsing and search history. Therefore, if you want your system to remain secure, then you should delete TheBrowser as soon as the opportunity arises. And, you should not forget to uninstall any accompanying programs that came with its bundle.
To remove TheBrowser, you must go to Control Panel, locate this browser, right-click on it and click the Uninstall/Remove button. However, we have included a step-by-step guide for the most popular Windows operating systems. So do not hesitate to get rid of this application, your computer will be much more secure without it.
