About this threat in short

NewTab.Pro is classified as a browser intruder, a rather minor infection that shouldn’t do direct harm to your system. Setup for the most part occurs accidentally and often users aren’t even aware of how it occurred. The most common way hijackers travel is through freeware bundles.

Reroute viruses do not guarantee the sites are secure so you may be rerouted to one that would lead to a malware contamination. We don’t advise keeping it as it will give no useful features. To go back to normal surfing, you must abolish NewTab.Pro. NewTab
