Object Browser is a questionable program capable of causing commercial pop-up ads while people are browsing on the Internet. Why it does that?

How does Object Browser hijack computers?
In most of the cases, people download Object Browser virus in a bundle with freeware and shareware. According to security experts, this program can get inside your computer with a free program called "YouTube Accelerator" but we believe that there are many apps that have been involved to its distribution that are offered on the Internet for free. They all promise to help people improve their browsing on the Internet but all what they give is potentially unwanted programs hidden in their components list.

We highly recommend ignoring these notifications and eliminating the program that shows them for you from the system.
What are other activities caused by Object Browser?
Object Browser is capable of causing not only annoying ads reporting about discounts, coupons and price comparisons (no matter how trustworthy they look, they seek the only thing – to make people visit specific websites and increase their web traffic and make the money). Also, this program has been noticed causing annoying redirects to sponsored websites, slow downs and even tracking of people's browsing activities. In most of the cases, Object Browser malware starts tracking its user as soon as it manages to infiltrate the system. Data that it tends to collect is known as non-personally identifiable. In other words, it seeks to know more about people's search terms, mostly visited websites and information that they leave when visiting their favorite websites. Also, it can get an ability to know user's email address, computer's location and similar information that shouldn't be revealed for unknown parties.
