Have you become that your web browser randomly shows BNDLDNSKeeper, instead of the one you want to see? It’s a sign that you have an installed ‘ad-supported’ software (also known as adware) on your PC. The adware is a part of dangerous software that created to display a lot of unwanted advertisements. You need to follow the step-by-step instructions below ASAP. It’ll clear your computer from ‘ad supported’ software that generates a huge number of pop-up ads in the web-browser and thereby remove the redirect to BNDLDNSKeeper web page.
Most often, the adware affects the most common internet browsers such as the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and MS Edge. But such the harmful software as well may infect another browsers by changing its shortcuts (adding an argument like ‘http://site.address’ into Target field of a web browser’s shortcut). So every time you run the browser, it will redirect to the unwanted BNDLDNSKeeper web-page. Even if you setup a new startpage, an annoying web-site will be the first thing you see when you start the Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge.

Also the ad-supported software can install additional web browser extensions, addons and modules that will inject advertisements within the Firefox, Google Chrome, IE and MS Edge’s screen. Moreover, the adware may install web browser hijacker that once started, will modify the web-browser’s startpage and search engine. And finally, the adware can collect a wide variety of personal information such as what web-pages you are opening, what you are looking for the Net and so on.

We recommend to remove the adware, which redirects your browser on the BNDLDNSKeeper unwanted web-page, as soon as you found this problem, as it can direct you to web-resources which may load other dangerous software on your machine.
