Try checking the adons and extensions in Google Chrome and other browsers installed on your PC and remove the unwanted ones an the suspicious ones.


also check if there are unknown or suspicious application installed on your PC from programs and features.

Startup is required if you want to use the program.

About BrowserSafeguard
