What is Browserkeeper?

Browserkeeper is yet another suspicious application that is advertised as a program that helps you avoid countless harmful and misleading websites. Ironically it does exactly the opposite. In reality, Browserkeeper is an ad-supported application that makes a profit by displaying third-party advertisements while you browse the web. The adware application was crafted by Smart Apps, a company known for such internet-based infections like Dealfox, Savings Hunter, Barnyard Deals, Coupon Waterfall, Coupon Champ, and quite a few others. All of these including Browserkeeper need to be removed if you want to regain the default settings of your browser and maintain a clean system.

What does Browserkeeper do?

Browserkeeper does exhibit quite a few generic features of an adware application. It will install browser extensions to all the popular browsers on the market (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox). It will present you with numerous commercial adverts within random websites that you visit whether you like it or not. It will disrupt your browsing experience and surfing the web will be a frustrating process to say the least. These activities will continue unless you remove Browserkeeper adware altogether.

Furthermore, this particular adware application edits the Windows hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts). The hosts file can be used in various ways. By editing this particular file, you could block various ads and pop-ups from certain adware servers, etc. But in this case Browserkeeper edits the hosts file in order to promote advertisements and annoying pop-ups from certain dubious servers. Browserkeeper adds an extra line into the file: dafchigfpaomilfpgggipiccacckmjic. It is important to note that often the IP address could be different. If you wish to restore the hosts file you will have to do it manually. The other option is to implement a professional antimalware tool that can remove any potential virtual threat and restore hosts file.

In addition to all that Browserkeeper comes bundled with a potentially unwanted application known as BenchUpdater that acts like adware helper. This particular application could be the cause why the Windows hosts file is changed. Furthermore, it could be used as an updater to renew Browserkeeper constantly. Also, adware helpers are known to be used to restore the application if it was not removed entirely.
