What is Win32:BrowseFox-EH [PUP]

Win32:BrowseFox-EH [PUP] detected by your anti-malware utility possibly means you have a generic possibly unwanted application (PUP) in your PC. PUPs are not serious threats, as their primary aim isn’t to damage your PC. It is more than likely that the PUP is disguised as some kind of handy application. It may be disguised as a computer optimizer or an anti-virus utility. The PUP category is given to applications when they install through the bundling method and attempt to fool users into paying money. You’ll be encouraged to buy useless software if you have a false computer optimizer or virus removal installed, and advertisements will regularly interrupt your browsing if you have a PUP browser extension. There’s a reason it is categorized as a PUP, thus it is recommended that you erase Win32:BrowseFox-EH [PUP].

PUP distribution methods

The potentially unwanted program has an official website so it is feasible you downloaded it yourself. If you wish to avoid installing questionable applications in the future, do more research about the applications.

PUPs also use the bundling method to install on users’ computers undiscovered. If you’re wondering how the technique works, it’s quite simple. In cases when additional offers come attached to freeware, they can install alongside. Commonly, those offers are concealed, which means a lot of users can’t see them, therefore allowing them to install.

These undesirable installations cannot be prevented, unless you actually pay attention to how you install free programs. So as to see extra offers, you need to choose Advanced (Custom) settings. When the items are made visible by those settings, you will have the choice to deselect them.

What does Win32:BrowseFox-EH [PUP] do

Win32:BrowseFox-EH [PUP] is a generic detection name for PUPs, which anti-virus applications like Kaspersky, Symantec, Avast, Malwarebytes, TrendMicro and ESET often use. The threat isn’t especially malicious, even if it is detected by most anti-virus tools. These types of programs don’t directly damage your computer, and instead attempt to make money by deceiving you into making worthless program purchases or by bombarding your screen with adverts. An increase in adverts is usually the initial symptom of a PUP contamination and that goes for most PUP types.

To sum up, purchasing full versions of PUP isn’t recommended as you’d end up wasting your money. We should also mention that because PUP made adverts are rather malevolent, you should avoid engaging with them.
