I wrote this article to help you remove CrossBrowser Virus. This CrossBrowser Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

CrossBrowser is categorized as a potentially unwanted program which most often infiltrates your virtual machine together with some freeware applications, including PicColor, VuuPC, WordProser, etc.

The CrossBrowser program is an Internet browser which is based on the Chromium platform, meaning that the interface of the browser is very similar to Google Chrome. This is the reason why computer users get confused quite often when it comes to this application. In any case, removing CrossBrowser from your PC is strongly recommended, otherwise you are very likely to experience security-related issues.

CrossBrowser and BoBrowser are identical programs which are developed by CLARALABSOFTWARE. However, unlike CrossBrowser, BoBrowser has an official website of its own – bobrowser.com. As soon as you set up CrossBrowser on the system, it erases the shortcut of Google Chrome and creates its own shortcut. Besides, the browser creates desktop shortcuts to YouTube, Wikipedia, Amazon, Google, and some other popular websites.

Another thing you certainly should know about the CrossBrowser browser, is its ability to display third-party advertisements. These adverts are shown only when you are using this specific browser, whose usage tough, is not recommended. Also, you have to ignore all the ads provided by CrossBrowser in order to protect your system’s security.

The CrossBrowser Virus

The main purpose of the CrossBrowser pop-ups and web banners is to drive more traffic to various websites, some of which might be corrupted. CrossBrowser takes no responsibility for the content of the adverts which you are interacting with, meaning that you open them at your own risk.

Also, you will notice some JollyWallet notifications featuring the label “Powerd by CrossBrowser”. JollyWallet is a service which offers you to get some money back after purchasing items on specific shopping websites. Remember that in order to browse Internet safely, you should remove CrossBrowser from your PC, because some tracking techniques may be used by both CrossBrowser and JollyWallet to monitor your virtual activities.

The good news here is that the CrossBrowser removal is not a hard process. You can delete it either manually, or automatically. In case you need any assistance with the removal process, you can follow the manual instructions provided below this article. Nevertheless, even if you have completed the manual removal, you still have to scan your PC with a legitimate antimalware tool to make sure that all the existing threats have been removed entirely. The security tool will locate and delete all the potentially unwanted programs and will safeguard your system against malware.

Regarding your lost Google Chrome shortcut, all that you should do is copy the one available in the Start menu and paste it on the desktop. The CrossBrowser program does not delete the whole program, so you can keep on using it in future.
