QuizScope is an application that is promoted on quizscope.com. It seems that it works on Internet Explorer only at the time of writing. Of course, other versions of this software might exist too, so there is a possibility that you will notice its extension added to Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome as well. In some cases, users download and install the extension themselves because they believe that they will be provided with the daily horoscope. Unfortunately, other people complain that this application has sneaked onto their computers without permission. Either way, it would be best to remove QuizScope from the system because this piece of software is not as reliable as it claims to be. Fortunately, it will not be hard to remove it from the system; however, we still suggest reading through this article in order to find out more information about this software and its deletion. Below the article you will also find the manual removal instructions. We are sure that they will help you to erase QuizScope independently.

Even though QuizScope seems to be a trustworthy piece of software that should provide users with the daily horoscope, specialists do not think that it can be trusted fully. Actually, researchers have even put it into the category of advertising-supported applications (adware). Yes, you are right – QuizScope might start displaying advertisements on a user’s screen. Of course, there are hundreds of other threats that act the same; however, you can be sure that QuizScope is installed on your computer if you can find its main folder in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local and can detect several new registry keys, for example, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\QuizScope.Control, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\QuizScope.Control.1, and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{D0405B37-CB13-4185-B08B-17CF898DD4C2}. We are sure that everything will get back to normal after you erase QuizScope. We will explain you why you need to do so in the next paragraph.

QuizScope might look like a very trustworthy search engine; however, the truth is that it is simply going to display advertisements in exchange for the service it provides. According to researchers at pcthreat.com, you will, most probably, see pop-ups, pop-unders, transitional ads, in-text ads, shopping suggestions, and coupons. It does not really matter which types of advertisements appear on your screen because you should not click on any of them. If you do, you might quickly be taken to a corrupted web page one day. We are sure that nobody wants to infect their systems with malicious software, which is why we suggest erasing QuizScope ASAP. This is one of those reasons why this software is considered to be an untrustworthy one; however, other reasons why you need to eliminate this software exist as well.

According to specialists, this application might gather two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. In case of the personal information, this software will record name and email address. Of course, it will do that only if you provide this information willingly. In case of the non-personally identifiable information, QuizScope is interested in the information about your Internet service provider, operating system, type of browser, geographic location, and pages viewed. Even though this information does not seem to be THAT important, we still suggest that you erase the program right now if you do not want to reveal it to the publisher of QuizScope.

It seems that the majority of users download and install this software from its official website; however, it does not mean that it cannot find other ways to enter the system. According to researchers, this program might come bundled with other applications. Those users who tend to download software from torrents, file-sharing, and other third-party websites might quickly download a software bundle unwillingly. Many users find it really hard to protect their systems, which is why we suggest installing a security tool. As long as you keep it installed, malicious software will not be able to enter your system.

QuizScope has a working uninstaller in Control Panel, so it will not be hard for you to erase it. In case you still need some help, use instructions you will find below this article. If they do not help you much, scan your system with the SpyHunter antimalware scanner. Its diagnostic version can be downloaded from our web page, so feel free to do that.
