Cancel Tabs Closing

Cancel Tabs Closing has got to be the most useless browser extension for Google Chrome to date. Its creators promote it as a program that will allow you to cancel browser tab closing with a click of a button which is silly since a tab is closed instantly with not waiting time. Clearly, the developers count on you not to remove because it, allegedly, offers a service that you will be unable to use anyway. It true purpose is unknown because it does not show advertisements, but does collect non-personally identifiable information about you that it can share with third ...

Viro Ransomware

The Viro ransomware is a computer infection built using the Hidden Tear platform, which was originally created to educate people about ransomware. Cyber criminals have already abused Hidden Tear to create infections the operations and purposes of which vary. The Viro ransomware is seemingly in development since it does encrypt files. Moreover, the infection does not create any .txt files containing information about the way the victim should make a payment. Although the Viro ransomware does not enrypt files, it does alter the background of the desktop. The image set as the wallpaper contains multiple images of a young man ...

Its accompanying browser extension is a big part of the equation because this extension is nothing without it. This extension is set to replace your browser’s homepage address with Home.spidersally.com — its featured search engine and, therefore, you should remove because of this. This extension is ...

Two Click Search

Two Click Search is one of those questionable applications bound to raise some eyebrows because it does nothing useful. We have classified it as a potentially unwanted program and suggest that you remove it because all it can do is add an additional button to Google Chrome that will, allegedly, make searching for information online so much faster. In reality, however, its offered feature looks more like a gimmick than a usable feature. Our analysis has shown that this extension can actually be used for collecting information about you that is sold to third-party advertisers. However, it is also ...

Chrome Settings Button
