What is GrabRez and how to remove it

If you see something called GrabRez installed into Internet Explorer, Mozilla or Chrome, or if you spot updateGrabRez.exe running in the Task Manager you have some adware running on your machine. The anti-virus programs refer to it as PUP.Optional.GrabRez.A, Application.Win32.Altbrowse.AK and a variant of Win32/BrowseFox.F.

Removal is easy. Just find GrabRez in the control panel and uninstall.

  1. After Uninstalling under programs and features, I also had to ‘end process’ for GrabRez.FirstRun.exe at the user level and ‘end process’ at the system level for updateGrabRez.exe in order to delete the program folder, .exe, and .dll files associated with the program. Otherwise it only appeared to be uninstalled. It was still running cozily in the background.
