What is dnsembreeville.exe? Should I remove it?

Have you detected dnsembreeville.exe running within Task Manager? Have you never seen it before? Then it's a sign that you have recently installed an unreliable free software and ended up with DNS Keeper virus. That's because dnsembreeville.exe is a malicious file cause by this adware-type program. To make certain of that, right-click on this file and you will see its destination folder to be 'DNS Keeper.'

Although the file is not dangerous itself, it does not stand alone and is always related to other software, namely DNS Keeper. Some of the security vendors consider the dnsembreeville.exe file to be a Trojan horse. In this case, it would be hazardous to keep it unterminated. However, our security experts did not find any proof for such assumptions, so it's not very likely that the file itself will download and install computer threats on your computer's system.

If you Task Manager starts running dnsembreeville.exe file as soon as you boot Windows, it means that DNS Keeper has been injected in the Windows startup and has been set to boot on a particular schedule. In this case, you should also check how is a web browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari) is going on. As we have already mentioned, DNS Keeper is an adware, what means that it's targeting at people's web browsers and is used for advertising purposes. Therefore, each of your web browsers may generate tens of commercial advertisements leading to the websites of the sponsors. Keeping in mind that third-parties that sponsor third-party apps may have suspicious intentions, such as to spread other potentially unwanted programs, bypass all “Ads by DNS Keeper.”

Another issue to discuss is related to people's privacy. Dnsembreeville.exe file can also be treated as a warning that third-parties have injected 'cookies' on your computer. It means that they can collect personally non-identifiable information, such as PC's location, IP address, URLs visited, data entered in the websites, clicks, and similar information about you every day. Most of the users are not willing to disclose it, especially to unfamiliar/suspicious third parties. Therefore, as soon as you notice dnsembreeville.exe, our strongest recommendation would be to check the system with FortectIntego, SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes. This way, you will easily and successfully remove DNS Keeper adware.

In addition to that, it's important to inform you and other computer users how such and similar computer infections should be avoided in the future. Malicious computer infections like, for instance, virus, ransomware, spyware, keylogger, etc. are typically spread via spam email attachments, exploit kits, rootkits, fake software updates and other unfair means. I case of potentially unwanted programs, including DNS Keeper, the situation is a bit different because all of them unexceptionally are legitimate. In fact, PUPs are usually spread bundled with freewares and sharewares. So, to prevent unwanted apps on your PC's system, it's vital to check “Advanced” or “Custom” installation process and untick all additional components if there are any.
