If you like to keep up with sports-related news, Find My Nascar Lineup is an extension that might catch your eye. At the time of research, the users of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer browsers could download it for free from findmynascarlineup.com and also the Chrome web store (at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/find-my-nascar-lineup/mkdmnkkfdcpcfkdhbifiibojplamoene). Did you download the extension? If you did, your homepage/new tab page should have been hijacked, and now when you open the browser and open the new tab page, you are introduced to what looks like a search engine with additional links to third-party sites, including espn.com, amazon.com, and booking.com. These websites, of course, are not malicious, but do you really need an extension to access them? Of course, you do not. If you decide that that is okay for convenience’s sake, you must not realize that there are security risks to using the suspicious extension. Our team recommends deleting Find My Nascar Lineup, and if you are not sure why that is so, please keep reading.
Find My Nascar Lineup was created by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd., a company that is notorious for creating PUPs (potentially unwanted programs), such as My Flight Finder Tab, EasyCouponsAccess, or EarthAndSatelliteMaps. The extension we are discussing in this report is classified as a PUP also. One of the reasons for that is that the extension is pretty much useless, since it does not provide original or exclusive services. Some might say that one should not expect much from free extensions/software, but that is not the case at all. Free services can be efficient and reliable, and the services provided by Find My Nascar Lineup are questionable and useless. Even if you enjoy having easy-access links to a few third-party sites, you cannot trust the search engine presented by the PUP. This search engine redirects search queries to Yahoo Search, and while you might think that the results shown are trustworthy, in reality, the PUP modifies them to represent sponsored content. Is it safe for you to interact with it? We cannot be sure, and that is a risk you should not be willing to take, considering that the PUP is, after all, useless.
You have options you can choose from when it comes to the removal of Find My Nascar Lineup. You can use the help of a more experienced friend, you can hire a professional, you can tackle the PUP yourself, or you can employ software to perform automatic removal. PUP-savvy friends are not always around, and professional help can be expensive. The good news is that deleting Find My Nascar Lineup manually is not a difficult task. We have created a guide for the users of browsers that the PUP is compatible with. We hope that you will be able to follow the presented steps with ease. Of course, we recommend implementing anti-malware software, especially if the PUP was downloaded along with other strange programs. Also, your system might lack full-time protection, which is what anti-malware software can provide you with. Whichever method you choose, if you have questions, we are here to assist you.
