Hello there and welcome to the FreeFixer blog. Just a quick post on the BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 adware. This appears to be a variant of CrossRider that I’ve previously written about. If the BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 adware is installed on your computer, you will find ads labeled Ad by BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 while browsing the web, new add-ons added in your web browsers and new files, digitally signed by Numlock Apps, on the hard-drive. I’ll show how to remove BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 in this blog post with the FreeFixer removal tool.
BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 is bundled with other software. Bundled means that it is included in another software’s installer.
Generally, you can avoid bundled software such as BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 by being careful when installing software and declining the bundled offers in the installer.
When I play around with some new bundled software I always upload it to VirusTotal to check if the anti-malware scanners there find anything suspicious. 6 of the 54 scanners detected the file. The BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 files are detected as PUP/Win32.CrossRider by AhnLab-V3, PUP.Optional.BrowserApp.A by Malwarebytes and Crossrider (fs) by VIPRE.
Since you probably want to remove BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1, these are the files you should check for removal if you want to remove it with FreeFixer. A restart of your computer might be required to complete the removal.
Hope this helped you remove the BrowsersApp_Pro_v1.1 adware.
