QuickLogin

QuickLogin

QuickLogin is an extension for your Chrome and Firefox browsers that is supposed to make it easier for you to access your email accounts. The extension should interest only those who have multiple accounts with multiple service providers. Even in that case, the extension is pretty useless because it displays easy-access links to Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Outlook login pages only. This is one of the reasons we identify this extension as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, it is extremely important to weigh all pros and cons before you decide if this allegedly useful extension is worth your trust. We know for a fact that it was built by the same party who created Search Manager, which is yet another potentially unwanted program. Needless to say, it is strange that the same company is linked to two suspicious programs. That is not a good sign. Of course, we want you to decide for yourself if you should trust or remove QuickLogin. Continue reading to learn more. Read more »

One Click Booster

One Click Booster

One Click Booster is supposed to boost your Windows operating system by fixing errors in the Windows Registry and by deleting certain things, such as malware, PUPs, temporary files, cache, etc. While it is possible that this potentially unwanted program could clear your browsing history and eliminate the temp files successfully, you do not want to rely on it to clear your entire operating system from malware. This is not a security tool, and the best it can do is eliminate the components you can easily eliminate yourself. This is why we classify it as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) too. Do you know what you should do about PUPs? You should get rid of them. The instructions our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com created below will help you remove One Click Booster without much trouble, but we advise reading the report first to understand how risky it might be to trust untrustworthy programs. Please take note of any questions that might come up, and use the comments section to present them to our malware experts. Read more »

YourMailTab

YourMailTab

YourMailTab is supposed to provide you with access to Gmail, Outlook, AOL, and Yahoo email services from one toolbar. It is unlikely that many people use all of these emailing services, but if you do, you might find the extension especially useful. Have you considered adding links to the websites representing them to your browser’s bookmarks bar? That would have been easier. Of course, if your bookmarks bar is full, you might want and additional one represented via the new tab and the homepage. The extension does not actually add a bar per se. Instead, it introduces you to this page: yourmailtab.com/homepage/homepage.html?id=MTI1NjE&implId=dGhlbWVfZ2VuZXJpY19iX2Nsb25l#hfew=d87f2072-9794-0ae7-18a6-b6b361e01a28. Its interface shows the email links, and it also presents a search bar. Overall, the interface of the extension makes it seem like a search engine, but it is a search engine you cannot trust. As you might have gathered already, we suggest removing YourMailTab, and we have created this guide to help you delete this potentially unwanted program (PUP) right away. Read more »

bestMovies Now

bestMovies Now

We all watch movies and TV series, and we all want the best and most convenient experience. An add-on called bestMovies Now is supposed to provide just that. The extension promises to offer “immediate access to information about unlimited movies, TV series, trailers and movie reviews,” which might make you think that it allows watching movies and TV series for free. It does not. The best it can do is route to gomovix.com, which you can use to find movies or TV shows and a list of streaming services that you can use to watch them. Overall, the extension is kind of useless, and it is surprising that users fall for it at all. Nonetheless, a useless service is not all that the suspicious extension can provide you with. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, if you do not delete bestMovies Now, it will track your activity and inform third parties about it to help them showcase ads, which are likely to be displayed via the search engine. These are the main reasons to remove the extension ASAP. Read more »

Auto PC Cleaner 2019

Auto PC Cleaner 2019

Do you know what potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) are? Auto PC Cleaner 2019 is one of them, and it is the perfect example. It looks like a completely harmless and even useful program at first, and if the user downloads it, they are then asked to pay money for its services. Before that, the program performs a full system scan so that the user would feel a sense of urgency. If money is paid, the “items” listed by the scanner are, allegedly, resolved, but that means nothing. Your operating system will not run faster or smoother if you install the app and then pay money for its removal services. Unfortunately, not everyone realizes that right away. If you have, and you are ready to delete Auto PC Cleaner 2019, you can go straight to the last section of this report to learn all about getting rid of the PUP.
