MiniBrowser Crawler Description

The creators of MiniBrowser Crawler advertise it as a web client that is better than the popular browsers. Allegedly, the small size of this application should allow it to operate faster than Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The description of MiniBrowser Crawler is misleading, as this piece of software may not accomplish what it promises. It is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that may come with an array of unpleasant side effects. The primary function of this suspicious application is to direct web traffic towards sponsored pages. To achieve this task, MiniBrowser Crawler may create many commercial materials and put them everywhere on the sites you open. It is important to note that this PUP may include ads in all other browsers that you have. What you may notice immediately after the installation of MiniBrowser Crawler are many pop-ups, banners and interstitial ads. The chances for these ads to optimize your online shopping are, at best, slim. The sites that rely on the services of this PUP to gain visitors may be too shady to be trusted. On some cases, similar programs have transferred unsuspecting users towards unsafe parts of the Internet such as sites that may host harmful software. MiniBrowser Crawler may substitute your preferred start page with an unknown and unreliable search page like crawler.com. This platform may display highly manipulated results as another way to promote its partners. You may notice some performance issues of your browsers after the installation of MiniBrowser Crawler. Some of the ads may be resource-consuming, which may lead to a significantly slower operating speed or sporadic freezes. The PUP has no official site so it may sneak into your PC together with freeware. The advice of the experts is to use a reliable anti-malware tool to delete MiniBrowser Crawler.
