You should not install MySportTab on your computer even though it is promoted as a useful tool that helps users to find the latest sports-related information online. If you open its official source http://install.mysporttab.com/?pid=11111 it can be downloaded from, you will find out what it is capable of – it promises to make it possible to access live game results, sports news, and more. Even though this application does look beneficial, we suggest that you find another program with similar features and install it instead because MySportTab is known to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Potentially unwanted applications are not real threats, but they might still cause trouble, so if we were you, we would not allow any of them to enter the system. Unfortunately, it is not always possible because they are often distributed using alternative distribution methods as well. If you are sure you have not installed MySportTab willingly on your computer too and do not like all these changes you see applied to your Google Chrome browser, remove this piece of software without mercy. It is not real malware, so we believe that you will erase it yourself quite easily. You should read this article till the end if you want to find more about its removal.
If you have already installed MySportTab on your computer expecting that it will act in a beneficial way, we have to upset you – this browser extension only changes Google Chrome settings. Speaking specifically, it changes a default search tool and New Tab URL. As a consequence, the modified version of the mysearch.com search tool is opened to users. There is a bar at the top containing several buttons opening sports-related websites (e.g. http://bbc.com/sport/ and http://www.foxsports.com), but this does not make MySportTab a trustworthy program. You can quickly access all those websites without the help of this program, so we see no reason you should keep it active, especially if it has been installed on your computer without your knowledge.
You should remove MySportTab not only because it is not as useful as it claims to be. It has turned out that the search tool it promotes (you will find it set as your new homepage and New Tab URL) is not a reputable search provider. Research conducted by specialists working at pcthreat.com has revealed that a bunch of search results it opens to users are modified. They simply promote third-party websites by automatically redirecting users to them. Theoretically, dubious websites might be promoted too. It is not very easy to distinguish those modified search results from ordinary ones, so our security specialists suggest that users remove MySportTab and thus get rid of the search engine set on their browsers if they do not want security-related problems to arise.
Researchers who have tested MySportTab say that some users install this piece of software willingly. The most likely scenario is that they download it from http://install.mysporttab.com/?pid=11111 expecting that it will work beneficially, they say. Without a doubt, not all users who discover MySportTab active on their computers can explain why they have this extension installed, which suggests that other distribution methods might be used to spread it too. For example, you could have installed this piece of software on your computer after clicking on a pop-up advertisement promoting it. On top of that, it could have been installed on your computer next to other programs because it might be spread bundled. We will help you to remove MySportTab, but we cannot help you to prevent new untrustworthy programs from entering the system if you do not do anything yourself. Our security specialists say that all users must have security software enabled on their PCs, especially if they surf the Internet every day.
MySportTab can be erased quite easily, so it is not a huge problem if it has already changed your Google Chrome settings. First of all, you need to access the add-ons manager. Then, you need to find this extension on the list, select it, and remove it. If you have never deleted an undesirable extension from any of your browsers before, you should consult our manual removal instructions. A powerful antimalware tool would easily erase this potentially unwanted program from your computer too.
