Just stumbled on a new adware called Focusbase this morning. You might have noticed it on your machine by new ads labeled Ads by Focusbase appearing or the Focusbase add-ons listed in Firefox and Internet Explorer.
I found the Focusbase adware bundled with another program. The installer file was called FlvPlayer.exe and was digitally signed by a company called Outbrowse LTD.
Here’s how Focusbase was disclosed in the installer:
Focusbase content includes advertisements and is not affiliated with any underlying web sites.
So, how about the Focusbase removal? Easy peasy with FreeFixer. Just select the Focusbase files for removal in FreeFixer as shown in the screenshots below:
Hope this helped you figure out what Focusbase is, how it is installed on user’s computers and how to remove it.
How did you get the Focusbase adware on your machine?
