The installation of MediaTab TV – PdfConverter will result in altered settings of Google Chrome. To be more specific, you will find both your homepage and New Tab altered. Pdfconverter.pro contains a search box and three quick-access buttons (PPT TO PDF, PDF TO WORD, and WORD TO PDF) that all open a third-party file conversion service (https://smallpdf.com/). As for the search provider, we cannot guarantee that all search results you will be presented with after entering a search query will be 100% trustworthy too. There is a possibility that some sponsored links will be displayed to you either, so, in our opinion, it would be smarter to perform web searches using another search provider that is 100% reliable. The online file converter promoted by Pdfconverter.pro can also be accessed without its help. You could access and continue using it after removing the potentially unwanted program by simply typing its URL in your browser’s URL bar and pressing Enter.
