You may be tempted to install Blinkx software if you believe that it will help you view the most popular TV shows and movies. If you visit blinkx.com, you can search and view videos for free, unless you do not agree to install the promoted Adobe Flash Player. The videos are placed under different categories, including News & Politics, Sports, Technology or Business. All in all, the website does not present highly suspicious services, and so we do not identify it as malicious. Despite this, computer users rush to delete Blinkx applications because they travel bundled with undesirable search tools. Continue reading to learn more.

Whether you choose to install Blinkx Remote Toolbar, Blinkx Video toolbar or Blinkx Beat (blinkxbeat.com), you need to be extra cautious about their installer setups. It has been discovered that all three of these applications may travel together with undesirable search tools which allegedly are powered by Ask Search. If you do not un-mark the right boxes indicating that you agree to install the undesirable tool as the default search engine and home page, as soon as the installation is completely and you launch your browsers, you will discover that you are now forced to use the Blinkx Toolbar search.

Even though Blinkx browser extensions are offered to Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, it has been revealed that the plugins are usually active on IE only. Overall, the toolbars simply create easy-access links to the services provided at blinkx.com and the search tools act as the video search only, which is why most users do not find these applications highly beneficial. Nonetheless, if you wish to keep the toolbars running, we recommend that you at least get rid of the search tools because they might disrupt regular browsing sessions and cause serious inconvenience.

If you wish to remove Blinkx applications and search tools successfully, you can use the manual removal instructions below. Since the toolbars and the search tools are not considered to be malicious, you do not necessarily need to utilize automatic malware removal software. Nonetheless, you certainly should install authentic security software if you wish to keep the operating system safeguarded at all times. We recommend choosing SpyHunter. The tool is up-to-date and will help you keep the operating system protected against all virtual security risks and malicious infections.
