What is TabNav?

TabNav is an adware application that is more annoying than dangerous, but still it does not mean you should not take this program seriously. It is an old infection, and there is no direct distribution source that would allow you to download onto your computer directly, but users still manage to install TabNav on their PCs when it comes bundled with freeware. You are strongly encouraged to remove TabNav from your system as soon as possible because adware applications lower the security level of any operating system out there. TabNav might not be a genuine infection, but it could be used as a mean of the distribution for some.testtest 100% FREE spyware scan and

Where does TabNav come from?

As mentioned above, TabNav does not have a direct distribution source. According to our security experts, TabNav is related to the FlowSurf adware, and it is obvious when you check out the icons of both programs: They are identical.

What’s more, TabNav does not need to have a homepage for the application to spread around. Such adware applications are often included in software packages that are available for download from file sharing websites. There might be several third-party installers that come with multiple adware and freeware applications, and users do not even notice how they install TabNav along with it.

What does TabNav do?

There is nothing exceptional about TabNav as it is just your average adware application. The program is compatible with all the major browsers out there, and the application has a running process under the name of abengine.exe. The presence of this process in your Windows Task Manager means that clearly have TabNav on-board.

TabNav will track your web browsing and then it will display commercial advertisements and pop-ups whenever you access supported websites. We are not trying to say that the pop-ups themselves are malicious, but they could be embedded with unreliable links. After all, TabNav and similar adware applications seldom check whether the third-party links in their ads are safe.

Most of the time, you will be exposed to websites that promote adware and various online marketing schemes, but in the worst-case scenario could also be redirected to a page that distributes malware. Needless to say, you must avoid that at all costs, so the sooner you remove TabNav, the better.

How do I remove TabNav?

Fortunately, it is not complicated to uninstall TabNav on your own. You can remove TabNav via the Control Panel, and it should be enough to terminate the pop-up flow. Nevertheless, you must not forget that adware programs come in packs, so after manual removal you should run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner to determine what other programs must be removed from your computer ASAP.
