My Movie Finder might look like a browser hijacker, but after testing it, we decided it ought to be categorized as a potentially unwanted program or a PUP in short. One of its annoying qualities is the replacement of user’s default search engine or start page with an unknown search tool. Moreover, our specialists say there is a possibility the results displayed by it could contain pop-ups, banners, sponsored links, and other advertisements from unknown third parties. It is vital to understand it might be not only irritating to come across such ads, but also potentially dangerous as you cannot know what they may advertise. Thus, it seems to us it would be wiser not to leave this PUP unattended and erase it at once. If you need the links it provides, a better idea would be to bookmark them. For more information, we invite you to keep reading the text and should you choose to get rid of My Movie Finder, do not forget you can use our recommended removal steps placed below.

Same as other similar PUPs, My Movie Finder could be downloaded willingly from its official website, or it might be installed accidentally by users who download installers from unreliable sources and do not pay any attention to the installation process. Plus, some could find the extension on chrome.google.com/webstore. No matter how it ended up in your system, it might act a bit reckless while installing new tools. To prevent PUPs or other suspicious application from entering the system, the next time we recommend taking some extra precautions. For instance, if the user does not have a reliable security tool, he could strengthen his system by installing it. Then, it would be highly advisable to exchange unreliable file-sharing websites with legitimate sites. Last suggestion would be to read all terms on the configuration wizard and choose the custom installation option whenever you can.

What happens when My Movie Finder appears on the browser? First of all, we should mention it works only on Google Chrome, so you cannot come across it if you browse with Internet Explorer and so on. However, if you prefer Google Chrome, the application’s installation, could set your homepage or search engine to my-movie-finder.com. This web page provides a search box and a toolbar. The toolbar is quite useless since you can bookmark web pages from it and if you are interested in movie content you probably already have them bookmarked as the sites are all well-known, e.g., imdb.com, rottentomatoes.com, and so on. Talking about the search engine, there is nothing special about it either. On the contrary, the research shows browsing with it could cause you trouble. Apparently, the displayed results might contain advertisements from various third parties, and the PUP’s creators take no responsibility for them, which means there is a possibility some of them could originate from malicious sites. Therefore, if you do not want to endanger the system, My Movie Finder might be not a good choice.

Users who wish to erase the PUP can either delete it from the Google Chrome’s Extensions menu or employ a reliable security tool and use its automatic features. If you would like to try to remove it on your own, but do not know how to access the mentioned Extensions menu, we can offer you deletion steps prepared by our specialists; you can find them just slightly below this report.
