If you wish to stream movies and TV series in a convenient way right within your web browser, we highly advise you to avoid a program that goes by the name of TvNewTab. After an extensive analysis, our malware researchers have labeled this piece of software as a potentially unwanted program mostly because it functions poorly, exhibits a few invasive features and could be distributed in dubious ways. We want to inform you that statements presented on its official website of can be considered rather misleading as in reality it does not perform in the best way possible; thus, you can safely ignore claims that TvNewTab might be the best program to use for video streaming. In this article, we present further information in regards to the functionality of this potentially unwanted program along a detailed removal guide that should allow you to completely delete it in just a few simple steps.

At the very first sight, TvNewTab might seem like a great program. Unfortunately, in reality, its complete functionality is quite limited as it will not allow you to actually stream movies or TV shows within your web browser; instead of doing that it will only redirect you to legitimate streaming service sites such as Amazon, Hulu, or NetFilx. Thus, you will not be granted with access to free streaming services. While such functionality is not harmful, it surely is annoying, but that is not all to this potentially unwanted program. During our research, we have noticed that the devious application will implement an extension to popular web browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. This dubious plug-in will then trigger a few changes with your web browsers' default settings; it will alter your default search engine and home page. While such changes could seem irrelevant at first, you should be aware of the fact that they will fundamentally modify your online experience, and we should stress the fact that it will not be modified for the better. This is so because, you will be forced to use the newly appointed search provider whether you like it or not, meaning that your every search query will go through the new search engine. Virtually the same thing will happen in regards to your default home page; your every single web browsing session will start on a third-party site that this potentially unwanted program sets as your home page. To revert all these changes you need to remove TvNewTab as soon as possible; otherwise, they will continue to disrupt your daily online activities.

Another major reason why TvNewTab was classified as a potentially unwanted program is the way it is distributed. Even though you can obtain it from its official website, you should know that in quite a few cases this suspicious application could turn out to be spread via bundled installers. It should be stated that such means of distribution impose some virtual threats since often software bundles host invasive and even potentially malicious programs. Thus, if you have not acquired TvNewTab from its official website, you should check your operating system for other devious programs. In order to avoid intrusive setup files we highly recommend downloading all your applications from their official vendors' websites because usually third-party download sites are the primary source of such questionable installers. Also, you should have a reliable malware detection and removal tool active on your computer since it can warn you about any questionable files on the web or within your operating system. Also, it could come in handy if you had to remove any undesirable application.

Make sure to follow the instructions presented below carefully. This is critical since you must delete everything related to TvNewTab to regain the default settings of your web browser so you could surf the web the way you are used to. In some cases, just a single file could be the reason the changes made by this potentially unwanted program are still intact. We are well aware of the fact that some users might find the whole removal procedure a little too complicated as it involves manual file removal. If you are one of those users, we highly advise you to use a professional antimalware tool for all your removal procedures since it will help you terminate TvNewTab entirely in an automatic way.
