​,

                I also might add that to help prevent future occurances. I recommend running the Latest McAfee Getsusp Tool, as it will detect Unknown/Suspicious files and programs. Which will then be added to the McAfee Global Threat Intelligence Base. You can obtain this Superb tool HERE

                Note:  Please make certain you enter your personal (Email Address) under 'Preferences' with-in the Getsusp UI, before scanning.

Just an FYI McAfee already detects the original version of this PUP (it isn't malware):  Adware-BrowseFox | Virus Profile & Definition | McAfee Inc.

This must have been a new variant.   Using GetSusp would probably have added it to the database.

I am inclined to agree   Also I might add that the individual applications  (In the Removal Guide) most likely have updated their 'Database' to include (New) variants. At least that has been my experience always in the past.
