CommentsPlus is meant to offer you this unique and interesting service, but, according to our research team, it is just another PUP (potentially unwanted program) that does not deserve your attention at all. At the time of research, it was compatible with Google Chrome only, and it is likely to stay that way. Nonetheless, if you find it installed on a different web browser, we are ready to assist you with removal. Just post a comment below with your questions or concerns. In general, deleting CommentsPlus is not a problematic task, and you should be able to get rid of this nonsensical piece of junk yourself even if you are completely inexperienced. There’s a first time for everything, and we are happy to guide you through your first PUP elimination. Of course, if you have no clue as to why this extension should be erased in the first place, you need to continue reading.
According to our research team, the official download page of CommentsPlus is elp.comments-plus.com, but the installer of this potentially unwanted program is actually found on the Chrome web store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/commentsplus/cljhiahgacgkopjhcmifljbjdgjfigma). You might think that this source can be trusted, but trust us when we say that some of the most unreliable PUPs are found on the Chrome web store, which is why you need to be extra cautious when downloading any new add-ons. Of course, you have to be extra careful when it comes to strange and unfamiliar installers that carry bundles. A bundle is a collection of different apps that are introduced to users at the same time to promote software/extensions and to trick gullible users into downloading something that might be dangerous and malicious. Even if you downloaded CommentsPlus via a strange pop-up or ad, you want to inspect your operating system to see if there are no other threats that require removal. Note that fake malware scanners exist, and so you need to be cautious about the one you install too!
CommentsPlus was created by Aztec, and it is linked to a well-known search engine, blpsearch.com. Once you install the PUP, this is the search engine that will be set as your default search provider. A few other questionable pieces linked to the same search engine include Fanatics Search, Flixtab Movie Center, and EasyZip New Tab. The removal of these suspicious programs and extensions has been discussed in previous reports, and you can check them out if you are interested. Ultimately, it appears that all of these PUPs are created not to help users but to introduce them to the same unreliable search tool. Why is it considered to be unreliable? That is because it redirects searches and because it shows potentially unreliable content. First of all, CommentsPlus redirects to Yahoo Search, which is terrible because many Google Chrome users trust this popular search engine. Unfortunately, the results can be modified, and interacting with them can be very dangerous. As you can probably guess, we recommend deleting the PUP because of that. If you stick with it, you might be exposed to links routing to malicious websites, scams, misleading promotion, etc.
It is strongly recommended that you remove CommentsPlus from your Google Chrome web browser. Although the services that this PUP is meant to offer might seem quite useful at first, you need to understand that this extension was created not for your benefit. It was created to assist Aztec with advertising, and you are unlikely to benefit from it in any way. You might already know what needs to be done to ensure that CommentsPlus is deleted, but we suggest taking an extra step of clearing browsing data. If you do that, data-tracking cookies and cache will be cleared along with the potentially unwanted program, and that means that no traces of it will be left behind. You do not need to do this manually if you decide to implement anti-malware software. This might be the best decision if other threats are found and if you need help protecting your operating system and browsers against unreliable programs and malicious threats in the future.
