What is ClickMovieSearch?

ClickMovieSearch is a potentially unwanted program. Judging from its name, it might sound like it can provide you with relevant movie search results, but there’s always the question whether you need a third-party application to provide you with such a function when you can employ your default search engine. Also, this application may enter your system uninvited, and if you don’t want it on-board, you can easily remove ClickMovieSearch for good. Just use the manual removal instructions at the bottom of this description or employ a licensed security application.test

Where does ClickMovieSearch come from?

This application belongs to the same group of browser extensions as StreamSearchClub and many other applications that usually have the line “a single purpose extension” in their official description. These Chrome extensions are not malicious infections, and they often have several official distribution sources. For instance, ClickMovieSearch also has its official website via However, the problem here is that official distribution sources are not the only places where one can encounter this extension.

Like most of the other potentially unwanted programs, ClickMovieSearch can also employ third-party distribution networks to reach the target systems. More often than not, these extensions get distributed through various pop-ups.

We often encounter pop-ups when we land on websites that support third-party advertising. Although a lot of websites support it, some might be very eager to place ads anywhere. For instance, sites that offer free content (like free videos or free games) might rely on third-party ads for survival. Hence, sometimes even clicking anywhere on the site (as opposed to clicking the ad directly) might launch a pop-up that promotes this extension.

Can you close that pop-up? Of course, but users often fail to do so because they get side-tracked by flashy ads and notifications. Sometimes they might even think that clicking the notification within the pop-up window will close it. But, by doing so, they add ClickMovieSearch (or any other extension for that matter) to their browsers, at the same time giving these apps permissions to perform various modifications.

What does ClickMovieSearch do?

Even if you are not aware of it, you still allow this app to change your browser settings. Of course, it might feel like you’ve got infected with a browser hijacker, but please not that all apps from this family changes the default search settings. Thus, with ClickMovieSearch on-board, your default search provider will be changed to And at first, it will look like you have a nice search provider, but what is the use of using this extension when it outsources Yahoo! Search anyway? You can perform the same search with the search engine you prefer directly.

What’s more, with ClickMovieSearch added to your browser, you will probably have your browsing history monitored. It means that this extension will be able to log your search keywords and the websites you visit. Don’t worry, it cannot log your logins and passwords because it is not a Trojan infection. However, all the information is logged with the third-party advertising in mind.

Once ClickMovieSearch knows enough about your likes and preferences, it can generate custom ads and deliver them through your search results. It might also seem that those results are relevant to what you have been looking for, and so, you might feel more inclined to click them. While there’s nothing wrong with such promotion tactics, ClickMovieSearch could be easily exploited by cybercriminals. And this is where we have to stop and reconsider our options. Should be allow this app to continue exposing us to potentially harmful content, or should we just remove it?

How do I remove ClickMovieSearch?

You can also run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner and see whether you have more potentially unwanted programs installed. If there are many other programs you don’t want and removing them is too much of a hassle, don’t hesitate to employ a licensed security application that will help you terminate those unwanted apps. And be sure to avoid websites that could expose you to such programs in the future.
