Get Search Plus

Get Search Plus

So, you search the web. That is one the most basic actions one can take online. Although it is basic, tools like Get Search Plus keep suggesting that people can do it better. This suspicious extension is found at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/get-search-plus/eoccimmcpieheioihnpeedkkfonjojgi (Chrome Web Store) and hsearchplus.co, and it promises to help you “manage how you search” via your Google Chrome browser. This extension is meant to offer “quicklinks” to shopping and social networking websites as well as provide you with a “convenient” search service “powered by Yahoo.” If you are not familiar with search tools and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), the extension might sound pretty great. However, if you have some knowledge, the information that describes the extension should sound like a bunch of nonsense. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team can smile a PUP from a mile away, and we can assure you that that is what you are dealing with as well. As you might have gathered already, we suggest removing Get Search Plus. Read more »

Shipment Trackers

Shipment Trackers

Did you download Shipment Trackers onto your Google Chrome browser purposefully? If you did, you must have expected beneficial services. If you have no idea where this extension has come from, perhaps you recently downloaded something else, and the potentially unwanted program (PUP) came bundled with it? Of course, the extension works the same regardless of how you download it, but if you have let it in along with other unfamiliar pieces of software, it is crucial that you examine your operating system. We recommend doing that with the help of a trusted and a legitimate malware scanner. At the end of the day, even if you downloaded the PUP from shipmentrackers.com and the Chrome web store (the installer can be found at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/shipment-trackers/capblhlnijkiglhdacnlboimeikjnnig/), it is very odd. Do you know why you should delete Shipment Trackers? Continue reading, and you will find out. Read more »

LiveStreamNewsToday Promos

LiveStreamNewsToday Promos

Although it would seem that LiveStreamNewsToday Promos is a tool that delivers both live news and promotional offers, according to Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers, this potentially unwanted program (PUP) is all about advertising. Of course, if you visit livestreamnewstoday.com, this source offers news. However, if you download the extension, you are introduced to advertisements from third parties. So, did you download this extension on purpose or by accident? In either case, it is meant to introduce you to third-party ads, and that is the main reason we recommend deleting LiveStreamNewsToday Promos. Why is that so? While online ads are not inherently dangerous or malicious, you have to be very selective about whose ads you interact with because some of them can be extremely misleading. We are not making any claims in regard to the potentially unwanted program discussed in this report, but if you are not enjoying anything else offered by the extension, there is no reason to keep it installed. We suggest removing it. Read more »

SearchZilla

SearchZilla

SearchZilla might be presented as a beneficial tool but it is just a potentially unwanted program. What does that mean? That means that this extension does not actually work in the most beneficial manner. According to our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com, it cannot even be trusted with the most basic function, which is a web search. Although the PUP (potentially unwanted program) is introduced as a beneficial search tool, all it can do is show modified search results. Do not have the illusion that these results are somehow better. They are modified to show sponsored links and advertisements, for which the PUP’s developer is likely to earn money. Without a doubt, our recommendation is that you delete SearchZilla from your Google Chrome web browser, but if you have doubts about the removal, continue reading. We explain how the extension works and what kinds of issues you might face if you install and use it. Read more »

Did you download the PUP from a third-party website, along with other suspicious extensions or applications? If that is the case, we suggest that you do not visit the website ever again. We also recommend removing all other extensions or apps downloaded along with the PUP. The good news is that you can clean your entire operating system and web browsers using one tool. Of course, some users should be able to delete Login to My Email and any other questionable pieces manually. Regardless of which removal method you choose, it is most important that you complete task. Read more »

Find Your Packages Promos

Find Your Packages Promos

If you need to track packages, you should be able to do that via the sellers’ or carriers’ websites. Find Your Packages Promos, however, suggests that it can help you track all parcels from various carriers using one single tracker. Doesn’t this sound amazing? Well, you cannot judge a book by its cover, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers suggest that trusting the initial offer of any program is the wrong move. The good news is that the extension actually informs that it can show advertisements after installation, and so those who install it must know what they are getting themselves into. However, if you did not realize that you would be flooded with ads after installing the extension, you might feel dissatisfied. In any case, there are reasons to delete Find Your Packages Promos from Google Chrome, which at the time of research, was the only browser that the extension was compatible with.
