Kaspersky has detected not-a-virus:Adware.Win32.Bromngr.k in Browser Defender.exe file. I wanted to delete it but I can’t because I can’t stop the Browser Defender service.

What should I do now?

Antivirus Programs Detect Not-a-virus:Adware.Win32.Bromngr.k –How to Remove this?

Not-a-virus:Adware.Win32.Bromngr.k is a new released Trojan infection detected by Kaspersky and other kinds of antivirus programs. It is somehow ridiculous that it declares itself not a virus on its name while it is a Trojan virus. It gets installed along with other programs you may get from some unknown sites. This Trojan often hides in system registry and makes chaos there. It usually makes changes to the system registry entries and that will lead your system react quite slowly. More than that, other programs will delay to run or cannot run at all. Even when you start your computer up you will get some error codes and the system takes longer to load. It sometimes fails to start up and you will need to do it once more to get it started up.

The most obvious phenomenon caused by this Trojan infection is the alert given by your antivirus soft ware. The virus is more than stubborn but pesky also as it is able to escape from the protection of the antivirus. You cannot know when it invades your computer until you get the warning from your antivirus that some of your system files has been infected with this not-a-virus:Adware.Win32.Bromngr.k. It will modify your system registry and makes your system run abnormally. And if you don’t remove it early it will be able to access to your personal information you saved on the infected computer. It not only makes changes to them but also analyzes them and collects useful information then sends them to remote cyber criminals. Your personal information will be revealed in that way and your contacts of your email will get mails that include unsafe factors from you. But you never send those! It is unsafe to have such an infection on our computers and we should remove the virus as soon as we find it.
