BrowserSafeguard for RocketTab

Very recently I have daily begun to receive a message to "update BrowserSafeguard for RocketTab". I always postpone doing so since I have no idea where that came from.  Checking programs I see BrowserSafeguard download date is 11/2013. A month or so ago I ran a full scan and this wasn't picked up as a problem. However, looking for info about both I have found RocketTab has to do with allowing popup ads which has been a problem with IE9 and Chrome.  Can I uninstall BrowserSafeguard? I almost did so until a message during the process said uninstalling BrowserSafeguard could endanger browser security.  No where on my computer do I find RocketTab.  Thank you.

Hi,

It sounds like it could be what we call a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program).  Some can be a pain to completely remove, so I suggest you sign up for help at one of the free malware removal sites for assistance.
