Dragon Branch Ads Removal Guide

Wednesday, May 27th 2015 under Security by

Dragon Branch Ads represent a real problem for PC users. Although they may seem harmless, the ads turn out to lead to suspicious websites and third-party pages. The reputation of these sites is not known, which means they may contain all kinds of tricky computer attackers and malicious infections. If you happen to see these notifications on your browser, better check the system for hijackers and potentially unwanted programs. Make sure you eliminate Dragon Branch Ads immediately and you do not follow any of them. Otherwise, you risk being taken to a compromised website and you may soon become a victim of hacker’s attacks.

What are Dragon Branch Ads?

The Dragon Branch Ads are notifications popping up on users’ browsers after the Dragon Branch hijacker is downloaded and installed. Usually, this tool is called a hijacker, because it can enter into PCs without being noticed and is able to change many of the browser’s settings without the knowledge of the user. If you visit the tool’s website – dragonbranch.net, you will notice there is little information about the program. Not only that, but there is no download button available, which makes it practically impossible to download the tool to your computer. Still, the browser add-on is often reported to be found on user’s browsers. This is so, because the extension is spread together with software from third-party websites. It comes as a bundled installation file and is installed as an additional tool to the user’s browser.

The application modifies the browser’s settings automatically – unless the user disagrees with the planned changes, the tool makes itself a default search provider and is set for a home page. As a result of these modifications, all the user’s browsing sessions are navigated to third-party and sponsored sites. From these pages, malicious viruses can be transferred to the user’s machine and may take control over the system, after stealing personal and financial information from the user. The Dragon Branch Ads and the browser add-on itself are not considered safe. The extension can gain access to your PC even if you do not wish to use its services. You may find the tool attached to your browser and may realize it controls all your browsing sessions. Do not allow this and remove Dragon Branch Ads from the system as soon as you can.
