How to remove Unico Browser (Virus Removal Guide)
Unico Browser by ClaraLabs S.A (also known as Unico Browser virus) is a potentially unwanted program that might cause problems for computer users. Unico Browser is promoted as a free and safe tool or alternative web browser. However, Unico Browser is known to be deceptive and intrusive. It bundles with other objects, including additional adware and malicious threats and it can access and modify user browsing activities. Unico Browser will use the observed activities and collected browser data to generate advertisements that specifically target users based off their habits.
Modifications made to affected internet browsers may cause browser redirects to monetized websites such as conduit.com. Modifications may also allow the program or add-on and extension and objects that it bundles with to run every time a browser starts, change proxy settings, and change the way a browser performs.
Unico Browser is not technically defined as a computer virus but the program is still a threat or the sign of a serious computer infection if it was contracted without authorization. Potential Unico Browser malware has been reported to download and install alongside third-party malware, malicious files, and additional potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), including fun4u. This means that it will be necessary to uninstall multiple programs and remove multiple browser add-ons and extensions to stop all unwanted activities from occurring. Apart from manually eradicating the program and others that it bundles with, files may remain undetected to the average computer user. That is why it is recommended to use a reputable anti-malware product to remove Unico Browser and malicious files that it may arrive with.
