What is Catalina?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Catalina is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that behaves like adware. These adware applications display advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing.

How do I know if my computer is affected by Catalina?

You may see these warnings during install:

these icons in your startmenu, your taskbar and on your desktop:

these tasks in your Scheduled Tasks:

and this entry in your list of installed Programs and Features:

How did Catalina get on my computer?

Adware applications use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was installed by a bundler.
In this case with the Citrio browser:

How do I remove Catalina?

Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.

  • Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  • Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • Then click Finish.
  • Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.

Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Catalina?

  • No, Malwarebytes removes Catalina completely.
  • This PUP creates some scheduled tasks. You can read here how to check for and, if necessary, remove Scheduled Tasks.
  • Malwarebytes does not remove the Citrio browser. If you want to remove it, you can uninstall that from the Windows Control Panel.

How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this adware.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Catalina adware. It would have blocked the installer before it became too late.
