SportsHDSearchs

SportsHDSearchs

When you come across an extension named SportsHDSearchs, you are likely to assume that it can help you access high quality sports content or, perhaps, even live streams. Whatever your thoughts about this extension might have been before you installed it, it is unlikely that you ended up being happy with it. This extension is nothing more than a search tool, and an unreliable one at that. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team tested this add-on, although there really was no need for that. That is because we already have all of the information about this extension. We have this information because it is a clone of ConverterzSearch, AllConvertersSearch, TopStreamsSearch, and other well-researched PUPs. PUP stands for “potentially unwanted program,” and we are sure that at least some users will find the extension unwanted. To learn more about the reasons to remove SportsHDSearchs, continue reading. If you do not want to waste another moment, use the guide below to delete the PUP from Google Chrome. Read more »

AllConvertersSearch

AllConvertersSearch

If you are looking for tools that could help you convert files, know that AllConvertersSearch is not one of them. It is just a search tool, and even though it might seem that it would help find converters specifically, it does not offer anything more than a regular search provider would. In fact, it uses a quote-unquote regular search provider. It is Yahoo Search, and if you decide to use the suspicious extension, it will redirect you search.yahoo.com. You might think that this is not so bad, considering that Yahoo Search is a trusted search engine. Well, because the PUP (potentially unwanted program) modifies the results that are shown via it, we cannot recommend trusting it. If you delete AllConvertersSearch and then set Yahoo Search as your default search provider, we are sure that you will be safe, but if you use it via the PUP, you might not be. So, do you want to remove the PUP quickly, or are you still looking for more information about it? We can help you in both cases. Read more »

Access Online Forms

Access Online Forms

You do not need extensions to access online forms, but the creator of Access Online Forms has decided to convince Google Chrome users into thinking otherwise. At the time of research, this extension offered easy-access links to findmyforms.com and eforms.com for its users, and while you might find them to be useful, you certainly do not need an extension to access them. Does it offer other beneficial services? That is unlikely to be the case. In fact, this PUP (potentially unwanted program) collects data about users, redirects to a third-party search engine, and injects ads into search results to promote third-party content. This is, most likely, what the extension was creator for. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does not think that it is useful, and that is why we recommend removing it. Do you know how to delete Access Online Forms from your browser? Continue reading, and you will find out. Read more »

Nebula Search

Nebula Search

Nebula Search is a Chrome extension that is practically identical to the Burst Search application. We can assume that both applications were released by the same developers.

You can find the manual removal instructions at the bottom of this entry. If you don’t want to remove Nebula Search on your own, you can get yourself a security tool. Read more »

VidSearch

VidSearch

VidSearch is a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. Do you know what that means? In simple words, that means that the extension is useless and unreliable. If you have installed this extension already, you might have realized already that it does not search for videos specifically. In fact, it does not search for anything at all. It simply redirects search queries to search.yahoo.com. However, instead of just showing the normal search results, the PUP also modifies them. If you think that the modification is preformed to include more video-related results, you are mistaken. Instead, the suspicious extension ads sponsored links. So, the extension does not offer a useful search service, and then it also modifies the results you are shown via Yahoo Search to show the links of third parties. This is exactly why we advise deleting this potentially unwanted program. If you need help deleting VidSearch, continue reading. Read more »
