What is Jelbrus?

Jelbrus is an irritating adware, which is also known as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). As you probably already known, adwares or, in other words, ad-supported browser add-ons are known for displaying commercial advertisements, which promote predetermined websites, try to increase sales for some unpopular shopping websites, generate developer’s income via pay-per-click system and so on. Therefore, if you suspect that Jelbrus adware has infiltrated your computer, we highly recommend you to check your computer with a reliable anti-spyware before you start experiencing system slowdowns, redirects to suspicious websites and similar inconveniences. In fact, this browser add-on is not malicious and cannot cause very serious issues. However, there are several operations, which may be treated as potentially dangerous. For example, Jelbrus virus may install cookies on each of your web browsers and start monitoring your online activities. Fortunately, it is not capable of collecting sensitive information, such as banking information or passwords; however, it may take such information as your PC’s IP address, approximate location, email address and similar information that may be used for suspicious purposes. In addition to that, this dubious adware may display a ton of pop-up, pop-under, banner, in-text, and other forms of advertisements (‘Ads by Jelbrus’, ‘Jelbrus Ads’, ‘Jelbrus Deals’, etc.) that may not only disrupt your web browsing activities, but may also force you to visit unknown or really suspicious websites. Therefore, if you want to prevent all these issues in advance, remove Jelbrus virus as soon as you start receiving its ads. For that, you can rely on a reliable anti-spyware tool, such as Reimage.

How can Jelbrus hijack my computer?

As we have already mentioned, Jelbrus is an adware, which has also been categorized as a potentially unwanted program due to one important reason – its distribution method. Despite the fact that it’s legitimate, many people complain that it infiltrates computers in such a suspicious way that they don’t even image where Jelbrus virus came from. In fact, it spreads using ‘bundling’, which means that it is commonly added as an ‘optional download’ along with various freewares and sharewares. Be aware that it may spread both with suspicious third-party programs and really well known and seemingly reputable freewares, such as various download managers, PDF creators, media players and so on. Fortunately, to prevent Jelbrus redirects and similar issues is not that difficult. You just have to be very careful when installing free programs on your computer and opt out of ‘additional components’ that they may be filled with. First of all, try reading EULA, Privacy Policy and othe accessible information about the program that you opt for. After that, select Advanced or Custom installation option and monitor the entire process step-by-step. Finally, unmark ticks saying that you agree to install ‘optional downloads’ and only then finish the installation.
