It is a very bad decision to install MovieJackpot on the system because this program, even though it pretends to be a useful application that can enable users to watch movies for free, is a typical advertising-supported application (adware) that is going to display advertisements and cause redirections. If you have already found this program installed, you should remove it immediately because it is the only way to stop all those ads, offers, and surveys that will be shown to you no matter which browser you use. We understand that it might not be very easy to do that, especially if you have encountered adware for the first time. Therefore, we offer you our help. Below the article you will find the manual removal instructions that will help you to take care of this undesirable program. Use these instructions only after you have read this entire report.

Let us explain you in a more detailed way why you need to delete MovieJackpot. Yes, this adware program seems to be really beneficial at first sight; however, the truth is that it is not because it displays offers and various commercials that might advertise unreliable third-party websites. You might be immediately taken to such websites after clicking on any of those ads once. In case of surveys, you might be asked to provide details like your name, surname, and email address - this information might be sold to third parties if you do that. As you can see, it is better to ignore all those ads, commercials, and offers. Of course, there are hundreds of other adware programs that might act the same; however, we are sure that you have this program installed if you can come across the folder MovieJackpot in %PROGRAFILES%. More experienced users can also find the registry key [HKCU/HKLM]SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{C770F2AC-2590-4A24-9B72-50D21B6F305C}_is1 in the system registry. Unfortunately, it does not mean that other threats are not installed if you have managed to detect MovieJackpot on your computer and now are sure that it is responsible for redirections to third-party websites and all those commercials.

Specialists at pcthreat.com have found that MovieJackpot might also violate your privacy because this program is going to gather personal and non-personally identifiable information. In addition, it might allow third-parties to track you: "Some of these third-party ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer." We are sure that you do not wish to cause harm to your PC and your privacy, so we suggest getting rid of this ad-supported program as soon as possible. As there is a bunch of other threats on the web and they might sneak onto your PC again, you should not forget to take care of the system's safety. The first thing that you can do is to install a security tool on the system. Secondly, you should stay away from untrustworthy websites and never download programs from file-sharing, torrent, and other questionable third-party websites. It is advisable not to click on ads you come across too because they might take you to bad web pages. Last but not least, it would be smart to find out (e.g. read users' reviews) whether the program is trustworthy before installing it on the system. If there is even a tiny possibility that the software is untrustworthy, do not allow it to enter your system.

Advertising-supported applications are not very dangerous threats, so it will not be difficult to erase them from the system. In case of MovieJackpot, all you need to do is to delete this program from Control Panel. If you do not know how to do that, scan your system with an automatic malware remover, such as SpyHunter. Actually, we suggest using an automatic tool because it will also find all other undesirable programs that are installed on the system and then will erase them together with MovieJackpot in the blink of an eye. In case you are still eager to get rid of this threat manually, you should definitely use the manual removal instructions that can be found below this article. Remember, they will not help you to erase additional threats that might have been installed alongside MovieJackpot.
