Inspiratiooo.com

Inspiratiooo.com

If Inspiratiooo.com has been set on your web browser without your knowledge, it means that you have encountered the browser hijacker. It changes browsers’ settings by installing the add-on named Inspiratiooo. This browser hijacker might be spread bundled with other applications and, on top of that, it is very likely that it is promoted via pop-up advertisements, but users themselves can consciously install this browser hijacker from the official Chrome Web store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/inspiratiooo/ofbkibnjeifpjjcnelcgganbfdhcnfil) as well. Needless to say, it works exactly the same in all the cases. It is advertised as useful software “for beautiful browsing and search experience” at the Chrome Web Store; however, researchers at anti-spyware-101.com have decided to categorize it as a browser hijacker because it usually alters browsers’ settings without the users’ knowledge. Luckily, it affects only Google Chrome, so its removal will not take long. If you have never erased any undesirable extension from your PC, you might find the Inspiratiooo.com removal quite difficult. To help you remove it from your browser, we have placed the manual removal guide below this report – you are welcome to use it. Read more »

myTV Search Plus Extension

myTV Search Plus Extension

The myTV Search Plus extension is a search tool for the Chrome browser aimed at providing users with access to TV channels’ content and the latest updates. However, in reality the application enables user to search games using the search engine super.cantstopplaying.com/search/. Like many other browser extensions, the myTV Search Plus extension is supposed to enhance user experience; however, many computer users may find this search tool redundant and may want to remove it from their computers. Malware researchers encourage affected users to do so, because the extension is capable of changing browser settings to monitor users’ online preferences and record data on various websites.

The myTV Search Plus extension falls to the category of potentially unwanted program (PUPs), which include programs that are promoted on official websites that might not arouse any suspicion, but are spread in dubious ways. Read more »

My Net Speed is a piece of software compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It promises to make it possible to test the Internet connection speed with the click of a button, so we are sure there are people who install it consciously. No matter if you are one of them, or if you have discovered My Net Speed installed on your computer without your knowledge, you should get rid of it because it is not trustworthy software.

Search.papershorty.com

Search.papershorty.com

It has turned out that it can affect all popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. If you have all of them installed on your computer, it means that it will take more time to get rid of Search.papershorty.com for you.

Search.hgetsports.net

Search.hgetsports.net

Search.hgetsports.net appears to be one of the Polarity Technologies Ltd browser hijackers.

Should you decide to remove it; keep it in mind the manual deletion instructions available at the end of the article are here to help you erase it faster. Read more »
