The page set (^CXR^xdm121^TTAB02^lt&n=78490B96&st=tab&ptb=73572CAD-D4D0-4F9D-91EA-C7FC9343DFB4&si=4r4&rd=alreadyInstalled&ruid=DC75FF10-4441-49CB-869E-E48F6B09A5AC) looks like a normal search provider. At the top, there is a bar with NBC News, USA Today, Politico, Tools, Facebook, and weather forecast. In the middle, you will find a search box. Below it, you will see buttons that lead to Facebook, Gmail, TripAdvisor, Instagram, and other popular websites. The page set is not malicious, but you should still remove it, especially if you have found it set on your browsers out of the blue.

Without a doubt, these are not all the details it will record.
