Installing FilmsPro Search Extension might seem like a great idea at first; however, this add-on is not as useful as you might believe. It promises to find movie-related content, and it does that; however, in reality, it simply promotes gomovix.com/s, and you can move to this site to find the information you need directly from your browser. You do not need an extension for that. The truth is that it is unlikely that this add-on was created to help Google Chrome users find information on their favorite films. It appears that it was created to hijack the default search provider. Some might argue that this modification is necessary so that users could look up movie-related content, but our researchers have found that the PUP (potentially unwanted program) works beyond that. If you want to learn why our research team recommends deleting FilmsPro Search Extension, please continue reading. If you cannot wait to get rid of this unwanted add-on, scroll down to the removal instructions below.

If you have downloaded FilmsPro Search Extension after some deliberation and research, you know that it offers a unique search experience. If you enter the letter “m” into the address bar of your browser and then tap the “Tab” key on the keyboard, you are introduced to a modified default search provider, and you can enter any keyword you want. Once you hit “Enter,” you are redirected to gomovix.com/s. This is done by redirecting via the search.iezbrowsing.com/search server. The content on this site is not useless, but it is not exclusive either, and you can find much better information on imdb.com or any other well-known movie database. If you do not activate FilmsPro Search, you are redirected to Yahoo Search, which means that the PUP actually corrupts the default search provider. Though Yahoo Search is generally identified as a reliable and trusted search engine, note that the developer of the extension can inject sponsored third-party links. Is it dangerous to interact with these links? It could be, but we cannot guarantee this. All in all, considering that the extension is not that useful, we are sure that instead of preparing yourself for potential security risks, you will choose to remove the PUP.

You are introduced to FilmsPro Search Extension at iezbrowsing.com, but the installer is promoted at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/filmspro-search/jbmiemgamhbmihogdfcoegadlkkmmgpm. That does not mean that this is the only source that promotes the PUP. Unfortunately, it is possible that malicious installers will be employed to distribute this PUP, and, in this case, it could be packaged along with malware or other potentially unwanted programs. Download the free malware scanner available via the links below and perform a full system scan. Soon enough, you will know if you need to delete any malicious threats. Hopefully, you do not, but if malware is found, do not ignore it because that could lead to bigger problems. When it comes to FilmsPro Search Extension, although it is not classified as a malicious threat, it is clear that its services are not that beneficial, and the fact that it can redirect to Yahoo Search without permission is disconcerting. Due to this, we recommend deleting this PUP too.

Do you need to remove FilmsPro Search Extension along with malware or other PUPs? If you do, you need to consider employing anti-malware software. While eliminating the PUP discussed in this report is very easy, clearing the system from other threats might be much more challenging. Besides, by investing in anti-malware software, you would not be investing in the removal of malware only. You would be investing in full-time protection, and that, of course, is most important. You need to think about that even if you can delete FilmsPro Search Extension and other threats yourself. If you are determined to erase the PUP yourself, but you have questions about the guide below, do not hesitate to communicate with us via the comments section that you can find below.
