If you see Moviesearch.today open to you each time you launch the browser you use, this might be a sign that you have installed the browser extension Movie-Quest from the official Chrome Web Store or its official website. This piece of software does look quite useful at first glance, so we cannot blame users who install it on their computers. They click the Download button expecting that this browser extension will allow them to search for the information about movies directly from their web browsers. We cannot guarantee that this extension acts in a useful way, but we are sure for one thing – Movie-Quest sets Moviesearch.today on users’ web browsers. You will first find your Google Chrome settings altered, but, theoretically, settings of other browsers might be changed too. In our opinion, you should undo the changes applied to your web browser as soon as possible because Moviesearch.today is not considered a legitimate search provider. Of course, we do not call it malicious either, but it might still bring problems if it is used as a default tool for performing web searches. You should not find its removal complicated because it will be gone after you remove the add-on promoting it from the affected web browser. If this does not tell you much, you will find the information you need for the undesirable extension removal in the final paragraph.
It might seem that Moviesearch.today is a decent page, but it must be removed even though it does look like an ordinary search provider. If you do not do anything about its presence and use it to perform web searches, you might even end up on a dubious page promoting untrustworthy software one day. According to researchers at 411-spyware.com, it is very likely that you will be presented with various sponsored links if you do not take action to remove Moviesearch.today today and perform web searches with it mercilessly. It is not so easy to recognize those sponsored links, so it is not surprising that so many users click on those links without even realizing that. Keeping the Movie-Quests extension installed is not a very good idea not only because Moviesearch.today will stay set on browsers, but also because this piece of software will gather some information about you automatically. Suspicious extensions focus on the collection of non-personally identifiable details, e.g. search queries, IP address, links clicked, advertisements opened, etc., but they do not miss an opportunity to record personal details too if users provide them consciously, so do not do that by any means.
You could have downloaded the Movie-Quests extension that has set Moviesearch.today on your browser from its official source, or the Chrome Web Store. Alternatively, it could have affected your web browser without your knowledge. In some cases, users agree with the installation of suspicious extensions by clicking once on advertisements promoting them, but, of course, it is not a commonly used distribution tactic. Browser extensions promoting suspicious pages often travel bundled with various free applications so that they could enter systems unnoticed. Therefore, if you often download freeware from the web, make sure you always install it extremely cautiously. To tell you the truth, installing software carefully might not be enough to prevent all suspicious applications from entering the system. Because of this, we highly recommend having security software enabled on the system 24/7 too if you surf the Internet every day and download tons of applications from the web.
You should be able to remove Movie-Quests using the Add-ons Manager and thus get rid of Moviesearch.today like this, so take action today. Below-provided instructions will help inexperienced users to erase the undesirable browser extension manually, but if you want to, you can delete it quicker with an automated malware remover instead. It needs to be downloaded and installed on the system first. The best thing about an automated malware remover is that it erases other active threats too thus making the system clean.
