Smooth Search Tab

Smooth Search Tab

Do you believe that you can browse the web “smoothly” with the help of Smooth Search Tab? If you do, you have to think about what kind of service this extension actually offers. Does it offer a tool that will help you browse the web quicker or easier? That is not the case. It simply promises to provide you with the search results of a third-party search engine, and, of course, that is nothing useful. If you downloaded this potentially unwanted program (PUP) from the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/smooth-search-tab/mfpnmamdicmfhemmnpbkldadnibnkfig), it should not have been installed with anything else. However, if you used a bundled downloader, the PUP might have been installed with other undesirable extensions and apps. Bundles can even be used to distribute malware! Before you continue reading to learn how to delete Smooth Search Tab, scan your system to check if there is anything else that you might want to remove. Read more »

ConvertItSearch

ConvertItSearch

ConvertItSearch sounds like the kind of program that you could use to convert files or access tools that could convert them. In reality, it is neither. Although it can offer a search module, it is not focused on conversion specifically, and it is not one that you can trust either. According to the researchers at the internal Anti-Spyware-101.com lab, this extension is just another PUP (potentially unwanted program), and the assumption is that it was created to assist in advertising. Is that what you expected to happen? If it is not, we suggest that you remove ConvertItSearch without hesitation. Are you hesitant to make any moves because you are not sure what exactly is going on with this extension? If that is the case, we suggest that you continue reading this report. You will learn how the PUP spreads, what it does inside the system, and what steps you can take if you decide to delete this extension. Read more »

AnyStationSearch

AnyStationSearch

When you learn about an extension named AnyStationSearch, you might automatically assume that it could help you access any radio station you want. Well, in theory, it should provide you with that, but only because it has a search engine integrated within. You can use any search engine to find stations online, and you certainly do not need to install any extension to access that kind of service. Instead, you need to pick the preferred search engine and set it in place. Some people might want to see it as their homepage, while others might use it as the default search provider, which allows activating searches via the browser’s address bar. Is there anything else that you would install the extension for? We do not believe that that is the case, and that is one of the reasons we recommend removing AnyStationSearch. That is, however, not the only reason. Whether you have already decided to delete this PUP (potentially unwanted program), or you are still researching it, continue reading to learn more.

Storm Search

FlyBox Ransomware

FlyBox Ransomware

FlyBox Ransomware might need an invitation to slither into your operating system. Of course, it conceals itself first to ensure that you are not able to identify a security threat immediately. The infection can be concealed as a document file, and it could be sent to you via email or perhaps even social media platforms. The message accompanying the attachment should intrigue you and make you want to click it. The threat is unlikely to execute immediately, and you might have to click other buttons or accept certain demands first. For example, you might be asked to enable macros. If you do that, the infection executes silently. Fake updates and stealthy bundled downloaders could be employed as well. In any case, the infection is meant to trick you, and if it is successful, your files might be corrupted irreversibly. Should you remove FlyBox Ransomware to recover the files? This malware must be deleted, but do not expect for the files to be fully restored with this action. Read more »
