Home.radiostreambutler.com is a featured search website that offers you links to streaming radio stations in different genres, but we have found that this browser extension is actually a potentially risky one. As a matter of fact, we have discovered that this is a browser hijacker that has been around for more than a year now. Still, it is possible that you get infected with it. Keeping this search engine in your browser and using it could put your system security at risk. Since it can sneak onto your PC with other malicious threats, its presence can also mean that this hijacker may not be the only one you should take care of. Although this hijacker may seem totally innocent at first sight, you probably do not wish to let further infections on board or land on a fake or malicious website where you could be scammed out of your money by cyber crooks. This is why we suggest that you do not hesitate to remove Home.radiostreambutler.com right away from your computer.
If you do not recall installing this browser extension or this search engine, chances are you installed this browser hijacker via a free software bundle. Although there are legitimate software packages out there promoted by legitimate free software developers and authentic websites, unfortunately, cyber criminals also use this distribution method to infect as many unsuspecting computer users as possible with multiple threats. Thus, a bundle may contain a number of potentially unwanted programs and malware infections as well. This is how most users infect their system with adware applications, Trojans, fake alerts, keyloggers, backdoors, and, of course, browser hijackers. You should be very careful when you search the web for free stuff to download (e.g., music files, movies, and software) because you can easily land on fake or malicious file-sharing sites that could be offered by even the most reputable search engines like Google. It is also important to know that questionable websites that seem to bombard you with all kinds of flashy and annoying third-party ads should also be avoided and you should refrain from clicking on random third-party advertisements in general. Hopefully, you see now how it is possible that it may not suffice it to delete Home.radiostreambutler.com alone. In fact, we recommend that you run a system malware scan by using a free online tool that you find trustworthy enough.
We also need to mention that you can install this Google Chrome browser extension through its official webpage, radiostreambutler.com, which actually takes you to the Chrome web store page at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/radio-stream-butler/hnppabjnlnodiphmldfijjkdcdaeieoo. We do not think that too many users would find these pages and this is confirmed by the site statistics, which indicate that only five thousand people have installed this tool in the past year. Of course, this alone would not be enough for most to want to delete Home.radiostreambutler.com; at least, not until they learn about the potential risks.
This browser hijacker tries to appear to be useful by providing you with links streaming online radio stations in different genres. You should know though that you can always use the bookmarking function of your browsers to pin a page to the bookmarks bar that you can then access with one click. This extension also provides you with a search engine, which is also set as your default provider upon installation. Since this search website is set as your homepage and new tab page as well, you can always be exposed to questionable content when you use your Google Chrome browser. The problem is that you cannot actually trust the web search results this hijacker presents you with because they can be manipulated to promote affiliates. This means that by using this tool you could be introduced to questionable third-party commercial ads as well as promoted links. Even if you find yourself on a Yahoo search results page after searching the web with this extension, you need to know that this page can contain promoted content that could be risky to click on. If you do not want further system security-related issues to haunt you, we suggest that you remove Home.radiostreambutler.com right away.

If you do not know how to do this, please follow our guide below. Do not forget about the possibility that there may be other threats on your system still endangering your computer. If you do not want to hunt these potential threats down one by one manually, you can always use a trustworthy anti-malware program like SpyHunter to automatically take care of all security issues.
