Flixtab Movie Center
Flixtab Movie Center is a useless browser extension that only works in your Google Chrome browser. We have classified this possible threat source as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it does not seem to be a direct threat to your system or your privacy. Nevertheless, it can still harm your system indirectly by displaying potentially unreliable content on your screen in the form of modified search results. What is even worse, it can penetrate your system without your knowledge and with malicious software installers. This means that its presence can indicate multiple system security threats on your system. This is why we suggest that you remove Flixtab Movie Center from your browser.
Although it is quite unlikely, but you may have visited the official webpage at lp.moviesearchcenter.com or the Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/flixtab-movie-center/kcojcaalekfjjjjalodhgaaplfiljgoc to knowingly install this PUP. We would like to warn you that it is always important to be cautious when installing a browser extension. There is always a pop-up window coming up that informs you about the rights you need to agree with your targeted tool should have in order to function. However, there may be certain rights that you do not or should not grant to an unreliable PUP because they may be misused and could harm you or your privacy. This is one of the reasons why we believe it is best to delete Flixtab Movie Center.
It only gets worse when you learn that this PUP can also be found spreading in freeware bundles. Unfortunately, bundles are mostly used by schemers to spread several threats packed together. This is how you can infect your system with adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, backdoors, keyloggers, fake alerts, and more. Unsuspecting users tend to ignore the installation screens and just press the Skip or the Install button to get it over with. It is essential that you always choose the custom option if offered and read the license agreement because these might be the only ways for you to know what your package actually contains. You can download such bundles if you keep visiting shady file-sharing sites, click on third-party ads on suspicious webpages, and if your PC is infected. We advise you to run a trustworthy malware scanner to find all possible threats after you delete Flixtab Movie Center.
This PUP sets moviesearchcenter.com/?sid=792&aid=20&src=nt to be your homepage, new tab page as well as your default search provider. This tool may spy on you by collecting information about your online activities. The creators or questionable affiliates might use this data to flood your screen with targeted ads. We have found this browser extension a totally redundant tool since it simply provides you with a few movie-related links like news and gossip as well as some thumbnail links leading to popular websites (e.g., Twitter and eBay). While these links may work just fine, you should know that you can always bookmark pages you would like to reach with one click; you do not need an unreliable tool to do so. Unfortunately, this PUP can also show you unreliable search results by modifying Yahoo search results. This means that this tool can inject customized affiliated content, such as advertisements and sponsored links, among the original search results. However, if you click on such content, you could infect your computer directly or end up on a malicious webpage where you could be scammed by cyber villains. No wonder why we say that you should remove Flixtab Movie Center as soon as possible.
We have included our guide below so that you can easily get rid of this useless PUP yourself. Although it is quite an easy job to eliminate this undesirable browser extension, do not forget about the possibility that there could be more dangerous threats on board, too. If you do not know how you can clean your system and keep it that way, we suggest that you install a reputable anti-malware program like SpyHunter. Please keep in mind that you still need to update all your programs to be on the safe side since cyber crooks can exploit outdated software bugs and attack your computer this way.
