What could be the consequences of keeping an unwanted program on your computer? Well, if you take a look at how MovieCenter Search behaves, you will soon see that it can expose you to a number of threats. For instance, the application changes your search provider to play.eanswers.com, and this is not an original search engine. It is just an empty shell that uses a modified version of the Yahoo! Search to provide you with modified search results.
These results are modified for advertising purposes, but there is always a chance that some of the search results could be exploited by cyber criminals, too. Please note that MovieCenter Search does not try to infect you with malware. The program is simply being exploited because it is vulnerable.
Do not let this vulnerability transfer onto you, too. Remove MovieCenter Search right now and then make sure that all the other unwanted applications get deleted from your system at once.
