iSportTV Search Plus Extension is a potentially unwanted application that is compatible with the Chrome browser. It is supposed to enhance your web search experience, by providing you the most relevant information on the latest sports events. However, the extension is rather intrusive and it could undermine your privacy. Computer security experts suggest removing iSportTV Search Plus Extension from your computer because this application could eventually expose you to corrupted content. If you are not careful about it, it could also lead you to a severe malware infection. Hence, the sooner you deal with this intruder, the better.
The official homepage for iSportTV Search Plus Extension can be accessed via ienjoyapps.com. The extension can also be found in the Chrome Web Store. Thus, it is easy to see that the program does not hide from you, and it comes forth as a regular browser plug-in. It also means that users download and install it on their browsers willingly. If you have not seen how iSportTV Search Plus Extension entered your system, it probably happened when you downloaded some freeware app from a file-sharing website. Freeware apps from third-party sources often come in software packages. When you install that one program, you automatically add a number of extensions and features to your browsers, too.
Is it possible to leave the unwanted programs out during freeware installation? Normally, it is possible to do that. However, users fail to deselect the unwanted features because they tend to breeze through the installation. As a result, iSportTV Search Plus Extension and a number of other unwanted programs slither into target systems. What’s more, the extension may also come from pop-ups you encounter on software hosting pages, online gaming websites, and other sites that often promote a lot of third-party content. Sometimes such pop-ups are very aggressive, and users cannot get rid of them unless they click the “Add” button.
Unfortunately, when iSportTV Search Plus Extension is added to the Chrome browser, it does a lot more than just help you search the web. The extension modifies your default search engine settings. It also redirects your search queries through its servers to collect information on your web browsing habits. Later on, that information allows the program to target custom advertisements at you, with the intention to make you click them. After all, if you click the links and ads promoted by this extension, you help the people behind it make money.
Even if you help them make some profit, there is nothing in it for you. Worse, if you get redirected to some unfamiliar website that is associated malware, you could get infected with dangerous programs, too. Although that is a very unlikely worst-case scenario, you have to keep that in mind, too. Hence, the sooner you remove iSportTV Search Plus Extension from your browser, the better.
Please follow the removal instructions below to delete the plug-in. You should also consider resetting your browser settings to default and scanning your computer with a powerful antispyware tool to see whether you have more unwanted apps installed. If you find more threats, please delete them immediately.
