Movie Megs

Movie Megs is an annoying desktop application that may pose an indirect threat to your virtual security. As a matter of fact, this is just another ad-supported program that may not come alone. This means that even its official installer seems to contain some nasty “surprises.” To be quite frank, this is a totally useless application that should not be installed or kept on your computer if you are a security-minded computer user. It seems that the main goal of this adware is simply to generate revenue for its creators through third-party advertising. However, we have found that the ads this application may display can be potentially harmful, i.e., you may get redirected to unreliable websites. Therefore, we believe that you should remove Movie Megs as soon as you notice its presence. Keep in mind that this adware may not be alone, so we also recommend that you perform a full-system malware scan to detect all potential malware threats. Leaving any unreliable application on your computer would only make your PC more vulnerable and exposed to cyber criminals. At the end of the day, you would be better off installing automated protection to safeguard your virtual world.

Although this adware program does have an official web page at MovieMegs.com where this application is available for download, we need to warn you about this page. If you have a security tool active in the background, it may block this page the moment you want to load it since a HTML/ScrInject.B Trojan is detected. This is definitely not good news and does not help us believe that this is a useful and reliable application. As a matter of fact, any experienced user would forget about this adware at this point. However, if you do not have a security tool, it is possible that you can download this official installer. We must warn you again because this installer may contain a number of malware infections; namely, adware applications, browser hijackers as well as potentially unwanted programs. This clearly means that if this useless adware is on board, there may be other infections as well. So even if you delete Movie Megs, your computer may still be in danger.

But it is not the only way for this adware to show up on your computer. It is possible that you click on unreliable search results while searching the web through a questionable search engine promoted by a browser hijacker. Such an infection can manipulate the search results and inject affiliated third-party ads and links. Clicking on such content may initiate the download of this adware. Another option is freeware bundles. You might download this adware by visiting unreliable file-sharing websites and clicking on unsafe third-party ads, pop-ups there. All in all, it is advisable for you to scan your system after removing Movie Megs.

This useless application offers you a way to watch free movies from your computer, but all it does is it loads certain affiliated websites into its GUI (Graphical User Interface), such as crackle.com/movies, which, by the way, does not even seem to be a fully working website. At least, you do not seem to be able to watch any videos that are hosted on this site, although the sound may start to play. It is also possible that there will be redirections to sites, including interest6.valuedinformation.com/numbers/?t=5&c1=UAMVM%3A%3A or savings-galleria.com/?agent_ID=202081&campaign_ID=6389. This adware may also start to show you potentially unreliable third-party advertisements, which you should not trust to click on – you may end up on malicious websites or get exposed to cyber criminals in other ways. We have found that this program is very similar to CareerPronto and GameWham. If you find any of these applications on your computer, we can only advise you to remove them all.

The only good thing about this application seems to be the fact that it actually has a working uninstaller that leaves no leftovers on your operating system. Well, at least something seems to work when it comes to this adware. We have also included instructions for the more experienced users as a secondary option. Please use our instructions if you need assistance. Also, keep in mind that working with the Windows Registry has its own risks; therefore, only go for the manual method if you are confident in what you are doing. Remember that this adware is most probably not the only threat source on your computer. If you want an effective way to eliminate all the potential malware infections on board and to protect your PC from future invasions, we recommend that you use a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter.
