Mustang Browser is a program that is commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed Mustang Browser without your knowledge.

Thank you for the log.

I see a fair number of PUPs in your log.. this will take some time to go through.

Can you link me to the installer you used please?

Thank you!


I don’t have any link or any installer setup file for  a third party but that’s is what I read it in 2 links above ! and your welcome blender ..

so can you tell my whether Mustang browser is an adware program or not ? because some others security software’s and tools had to detected Mustang browser as Adware ! and there is a lot of new fake web-browsers out there !

and also note : it should be there an online installer however it give my an full-offline installer ? they may have remove the link for online installer ?

and to clear it out thing I every time you click on any downloaded on their website you’ll note they will Generating different name like it shown on my own screenshots ....

Thank you for the link & additional info.

I have a meeting very shortly, few other things to take care of & then I will look into this. 

Indeed there are many PUP(ish) browsers out there. Since some are open source .. all one has to do is add a few scripts or bundled add-ons that display piles of adverts.
