What is Browse Free Recipes

Right after the penetration, Browse Free Recipes alters the settings of your browsers. That's its most important function, because the head function in this system is left for the scammers' search engine to which you get redirected. So, the virus clears the default homepage and your favorite search and puts the unreliable search in their place. After that you cannot use the reputable Google, Bing, Yahoo or another search you prefer – you’ll surf the Web through the crippled fake tool that gives away pop-ups irrelevant websites advertising banners of all types and colors. The virus also corrupts the properties of browser icons in a way that even if you recover the default settings, you'll automatically open the fraud search system as a first tab.

If you have already tried to get rid of Browse Free Recipes, you could mention that it comes back, no matter how many times you uninstalled it. It happens thanks to the adware’s defensive algorithms, and we'll define their essence:

  • The easiest way of defense is to develop a scheduled task for the reinstallation of Browse Free Recipes after its removal. Such tasks are not often used by common PC users, so Browse Free Recipes just sets a task to see if it’s running, and if it isn't – to download and install it one more time. The task is being launched after each restart, and that’s why Browse Free Recipes keeps reinstalling.
  • Another technique is very much like the previous one, but it employs the system registry and not the Scheduled Tasks service. You should clear the registry to defeat this method, but it’s a rather hard thing for a novice user. The other registry values are needed for the computer to work, and by clearing any of them, you may cause significant damage to the OS.

The utility that distributes ads is called Browse Free Recipes, and it is an advertising tool. It’s a kind of program that can do nothing good, as it’s created to do one thing: to drive you crazy. Well, the mere irritation isn’t its real task, but you'll be irritated in any case until Browse Free Recipes does its job – distributes ads. It gets into the computer, it changes the browser settings and shows you lots of pop-ups, making sure that they've attracted your attention. Adware owners receive a little money for each click you’ve made, and now you understand why the ads keep popping up: it’s a honeypot. In the coming sections, we will explain in which way adware got onto the device and how you might defend it against similar viruses. In case you know all you need on that topic and simply want to uninstall adware one way or another – skip the coming sections and look at the uninstalling advice.


How Browse Free Recipes got on your computer

To clarify the things a bit, we’ll describe the process in total. 99% of the advertisement-oriented utilities are each other's copies, duplicated millions of times and sold to different fraudsters with minor changes made. Some evil lads got Browse Free Recipes on an illegal auction, set it up and uploaded it to file-sharing services around the Net. And after that, there was you, searching for it. Wait, you're saying that you didn’t look for adware that will annoy you? Possibly, you searched for a perfect screwing-it-all-up tool for the system, and received a direct link to Browse Free Recipes download? Missed again? Okay, in that case, you wanted to download some program that is really good. Some toll-free software from an unknown developer, or a hacked version of some well-known utility you aren't going to buy.

This manner is known as “sponsored installation”, and it means that scammers combine the installation files of several viruses and one good utility into one package. The bottom feature of this bundle is that it’s called by the name of a helpful tool, and you can't discover its content until the installation begins. On some of the stages, you see a suggestion to get additional viruses, with the required fields checked and the easiest decision is to download them and proceed. And you clicked on it. There's another manner, with the “installation manners”. In most cases, the installation for experienced customers is simply a choice of where you need a utility to be installed, and how many additional utilities do you want. In Browse Free Recipes's case, if you pick the recommended installation, you allow all the adware from the viral installer into the device.
