Don’t click on anything associated with MyBrowser Virus or its Ads
In essence nothing useful will come out of those. Supprimer MyBrowser Virus may try to install viruses or malware on your computer, try to scam you into buying non-functional bloatware programs or just annoy the hell out of you with invasive toolbars and additional Ads. It is possible that some of the Ad offers to be legitimate, but it isn’t worth the risk, especially when there is no sure way to tell what is real and what is fake.
In fact MyBrowser Virus itself probably installed itself in a similar manner. Viruses almost always come under the form of executable files (ending in .exe) and there is no mandatory correlation between the name of such a file and it’s function. Free programs should always be carefully researched and obtained only from the official developer for them. It is possible for all kinds of viruses to lurk in their installers. This is also the case with legitimate paid software that is obtained outside of the site that sells it.
Also be extra extra careful with online storage and torrent sites. These will often add fake download buttons, which download nothing else but virus installers. The same applies to emails that contain file attachments. Remember that the .exe extension is associated with a file that run itself like a program and is able to install things on your computer. If you are looking at a document, music, video, picture, archive (etc) file that ends with .exe then it’s likely you are looking at a virus.
