The website has a browser called Jet Browser that contains Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP). Potentially Unwanted Programs are applications that contain adwares, toolbars or web browser hijackers. These programs tend to be difficullt to remove after they have been installed on your computer.

This is how the website looks:


The Jet Browser installation file JetBrowserSetup.exe was scanned with 46 antivirus programs and 3 detected adwares and other potentially unwanted programs.

Below are the antivirus software and the threats they have detected.

Here is the result of the scan:

File name: JetBrowserSetup.exe
Detection ratio: 3 / 46
Analysis date: 2013-02-27

Antivirus - Threats
AVG --- Suspicion: unknown virus
ESET --- NOD32 a variant of Win32/InstallBrain.W
VIPRE --- InstallBrain (fs)

If you have already installed this browser, click here to use AdwCleaner to remove the Potentially Unwanted Programs that were installed. AdwCleaner is a very small program and doesn't require any installation.

You may also use Sophos free virus removal tool, click here to download.

I do not recommend downloading and installing the Jet Browser. Click here to learn more about Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP).
