Overview of Bronze Aid Pop up
What is Bronze Aid Actually?
Bronze Aid is obviously an adware. It seems to us not a very difficult thing to put into words the meaning of adware and what it is used for. Clearly, this is a tool used for advertising and promotion. In a particular kind of way, such adware is a dangerous threat to computer system. It is taken us time to figure out if our computer is infected by malware till we start getting random pop up ads BY Bronze Aid. Even it has given lip service to “convenience” and to “useful” from the beginning but only when it is installed does it begins to do some malicious activities on system. If we can notice the installation of this adware, and this, though uncomfortably, is probably the case, then sooner or later we will get the chance to stop such unwanted tool. This tool is more or less harmful to our computer as some hacker may make use of it to collect personal information. Keeping this adware on computer is a risk, just like opening a door for hackers as it not only commits to display ads but also records and sells personal details as it claims:
We find this program knowing a little bit about it maybe, from the pop up ads or from the information displayed on its official website. But we must know, the suspicious third parties are always harmful.
Risks of Bronze Aid

By running Spyhunter on computer we can discover what is the main feature of this tool and we may realize that knowledge of adware means advertising.

Step two. Remove Bronze Aid extension from web browsers

Ste three. Restore browser settings to default（Optional)
If we still receive a lot of ads after removing relevant extensions from web browsers, do check whether any other settings are changed without permission. Once we are not able to find the settings which are changed, we better restore browser settings in order to make sure there is no more malicious change on browser.
(Note: Do save the valuable details before restoring as it might lead to data lost when we resetting browser settings to default.)
