My Movie Finder
My Movie Finder might seem like a handy tool if you are a fan of movies and like to know all news about actors and actresses. Unfortunately, this application falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs, which means it cannot be trusted. Therefore, our researchers are against its usage. Instead, we believe it would be safer to bookmark imdb.com or other popular websites the extension might introduce you to. As you see, the quick access to movie content promised on the application’s description is nothing more than a toolbar with links to sites like rottentomatoes.com, fandango.com, and so on. What's more, we learned if you keep surfing the Internet with the potentially unwanted program’s provided search engine you might accidentally encounter possibly malicious advertisements. Granted you do not want to risk facing such content we advise following the deletion instructions located at the end of this text or removing My Movie Finder with a trustworthy antimalware tool.
This potentially unwanted program could be downloaded from my-movie-finder.com if the user finds this site or from Chrome Web Store Page. The reason you will not see it on Firefox Add-ons web page is that it is not compatible with Mozilla Firefox or truth to be told with any other browser besides Google Chrome. The other way to come across this extension might be through bundled software installers or irritating pop-up ads that may appear on various file-sharing web pages. In case this is how you encountered My Movie Finder we would recommend being more cautious in the future. To avoid potentially unwanted programs, adware, and other possible threats users should watch out for file-sharing web pages suggesting pirated applications or suspicious freeware. Another thing we could suggest is always to choose advanced or custom installation settings since it may allow the user not only to learn more about the tool but also deselect unwanted bundled programs.
Once the extension settles in it might replace your homepage or search provider with my-movie-finder.com. Our researchers say it is the primary My Movie Finder’s task. Through this website, the potentially unwanted application provides what it promises; a quick access to sites containing movie content as on top of the site you should see a toolbar with particular links, for example, imdb.com, amctheatres.com, rottentomatoes.com, and so on. The truth is you could reach the same web pages at the same time if you would bookmark them. In other words, the extension does not provide any movie content itself, and the web pages it offers can be loaded without installing it. Under such circumstances, we would not be surprised if the application’s users might feel disappointed after installing it as some of you may have expected to receive a program with more advanced features.
The worst part is, the website My Movie Finder might change your homepage or default search provider to is also a search engine. Our researchers say this search engine could gather results with a modified bing.com version and because of this, there is a chance it might inject the gathered results with untrustworthy advertising content from the third party. For example, the ads could ask you to fill fake surveys, participate in fictitious lotteries, download more potentially unwanted programs or other threats, and so on. Needless to say, clicking such ads could endanger both your system and your privacy, which is why we recommend staying away from them as much as possible.
All in all, we do not think a few links you could easily bookmark are worth taking any risks, and so we advise users not to take any chances with My Movie Finder. If you decide to erase it, there are a couple of options we may suggest. The first one would be to follow the instructions available below; they will tell you how to delete the extension manually. The second option is to get a reliable antimalware tool; since it is a potentially unwanted program the chosen tool should detect it, and the user could remove it after the scan.
