What is nJoyMovies Search Plus?

nJoyMovies Search Plus seems to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that you may come across if you search the Internet with Google Chrome. According to our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com, the suspicious application could be distributed through unreliable sources. Not to mention, it might show you questionable advertisements from various third parties. As a consequence, there is a possibility some part of this material may come from untrustworthy sources and sadly, if you click them, the ads might lead you to various unreliable web pages, e.g., the third-party web pages that could contain malicious software, threats similar to this PUP, fake questionnaires or lotteries created to steal users' sensitive data, and so on. Under such circumstances, we would advise against nJoyMovies Search Plus usage. Users who need more information before deciding whether they want to get rid of it should continue reading the article. As for users who already decided it would be best to remove it, we recommend using the manual deletion steps available below.test

Where does nJoyMovies Search Plus come from?

The PUP could be installed after visiting its official website called njoyapps.com, or it might be found while browsing the Chrome Web Store page. However, there is one other way nJoyMovies Search Plus could appear on the system without the user even realizing it. Our researchers say the application might travel with bundled software installers available through suspicious file-sharing web pages or pop-up advertisements. Either way, the user could install it accidentally if he does not review information on the setup wizard or interact with pop-ups without researching the promoted software. To avoid such mistakes the next time, we would merely advise paying more attention to the programs you choose to install and the web pages you download them from. Needless to say, it is always safer to download tools from legitimate and reputable web pages than from file-sharing sites.

How does nJoyMovies Search Plus work?

Like any other Google Chrome extension it should settle in by creating folders in the %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions, %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Sync Extension Settings, and %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Sync Extension Settings directories. If there are any additional Google Chrome profiles, nJoyMovies Search Plus could create even more new data on the computer; it will be listed in the deletion instructions available below the article.

What’s more, once the PUP settles in it could change your default search engine with its own tool. According to our researchers, the new search engine might redirect all user’s submitted search queries through movix.searchalgo.com. We believe nJoyMovies Search Plus might act this way to inject additional advertisements from its third-party partners. As you see, in exchange for promoting their partners' content, the software’s creators could get paid. What you should know is that while the ads may generate money for someone, clicking them might put you and your personal data at risk if you get redirected to a malicious site. Thus, instead of taking any risks, we advise you to eliminate this PUP and choose a legitimate search engine to replace it.
