myTV Search Plus Extension
Finding myTV Search Plus Extension in your browser could mean that you have just infected your computer with a browser hijacker. This new Google Chrome extension is very familiar to us since we have seen dozens of very similar ones appear on the web lately, including myMusic Start and myGames Search. This hijacker modifies your default search engine and replaces it with a questionable one. This means that anytime you run a web search directly from your address bar, you may end up on modified search results pages promoting affiliates, which may not always be reliable. In other words, this search engine may put your system security at risk. It is also quite possible that you will find a number of other malware threats on board, which may have entered your system alongside this hijacker. This is why we suggest that you remove myTV Search Plus Extension from your computer as soon as possible.
You can install this browser hijacker officially through its website, myappline.com, which also promotes several other similar threats in the form of browser extensions. When you click the "Add to Chrome" button, you are taken to the respective Chrome web store page, in this case, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mytv-search-plus/kjnnjgmdonkcbmgapnjjpnfdkbelmepj. This family has a very annoying and obnoxious feature during installation. It redirects you to a new page like "movie.medianetnow.com/wim/lp/offer/?t=tvnoop&ref=unknown" where you are offered a tool to install. The problem is that this is rather misleading and you could think that it is part of the original installation process. We believe that this should be enough to delete myTV Search Plus Extension, but this is not the end.
Our research and users' reports indicate that this browser hijacker is also spread in deceptive ways. This means that you could install it when installing a freeware bundle. This software package could be downloaded from suspicious file-sharing sites, but it is also possible that you visit other websites promoting corrupt third-party contents and you click on one of those. It is also essential for you to know that you can always infect your computer with more threats when your PC has been infected already. This is why it is so important that you detect all possible threats on your system by using a reliable malware scanner after you delete myTV Search Plus Extension from your browser.
When you install this browser extension, it replaces your default search engine with tv.searchalgo.com. You can directly search super.cantstopplaying.com/search/ as well, if you press the tool's button in the taskbar at the top, near the menu button. You can also use this function if you enter "tv" in your address bar and hit the Tab key. This online gaming site however is a bit shady and filled with potentially unreliable third-party ads as well. We advise you to stay away from it if you do not want further infections to invade your PC. The search engine also may present to you questionable search results as it redirects you to a modified Yahoo results page. This page may contain promoted affiliates' ads and links, which means that it is possible to click on unreliable content that could take you to malicious websites or drop infections directly. Thus, we recommend that you remove myTV Search Plus Extension right now.
