There are a lot of legitimate programs out there that users mistake for computer infections due to their distribution methods. Outfox TV may also be considered a computer infections, but that is definitely not the case, because OutfoxTV is available at outfox.tv and it is promoted as a legal program that can help you watch TV online without any subscription fee. In that aspect, there is nothing wrong with the program. However, if Outfox TV is bundled with shareware programs that are available at third party websites (such as 4shared or cNet), then it may definitely come across as annoying.
Perhaps the most obvious feature of Outfox TV is the launch-bar that gets installed at the right side of your desktop. Needless to say, that if you use this program often the launch-bar is very useful and convenient, but if you did not want to install the program then the launch-bar may seem very annoying. The good news though, is that you can easily remove Outfox TV via Control Panel, but if the application arrived with some other program, do not forget to uninstall these additional programs as well.
What is more, even if you installed Outfox TV yourself, you need to consider the fact that since Outfox TV is free of charge, the application supports commercial advertisements, so in some case it might be classified as adware as well. Not to mention that any program which supports adware also employs tracking cookies to collect your browsing history. Thus, Outfox TV monitors what websites you visit and what you search for online. Such practice is employed by a number of websites and search engines, but one cannot be sure that Outfox TV secures the information it collects.
Thus, use the application at your own risk, and in case you want to uninstall Outfox TV, follow the manual removal instructions below. Also, if you think that there might be other potentially unwanted applications on your computer, run a full system scan with SpyHunter. Should you detect any malicious files or programs, get yourself a powerful computer security tool that would help you remove everything through and through.
