The presence of Search.MyTelevisionXp.com as your new home page may signal that your computer has been attacked by a browser hijacker. This hijacker enters your system silently and makes arbitrary changes to your browser settings. That act is a serious breach of your privacy, which is also illegal. This search engine might present to you unsafe third-party content. There are other risks too that may raise the vulnerability of your computer. Removing Search.MyTelevisionXp.com is the only way for you to go if you want to protect your PC from potential harm. For the details, please read our full report.

We have found that this browser hijacker is not unique in any sense; in fact, it is identical to Search.mymapsxp.com, just to name one of the few clones out there on the web. It is quite likely that you did not set your browser home page, new tab page, and default search engine willingly and knowingly to this search engine, so you must be surprised to find it there when you launch your preferred browser. Since this hijacker can affect all of the three most popular browsers, you will be exposed to its potential dangers if you use either Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome. However, if you did not install the My Television XP Software yourself, it had to infiltrate your computer silently.

It is possible that you have downloaded and installed free software recently. Since this browser hijacker may be found bundled, you could have downloaded it by clicking on a third-party advertisement or a misleading button on a questionable file-sharing website. If that is what happened, there is a good chance that the bundle was packed with malware infections. That could mean multiple security threats on your Windows operating system. If you are in these shoes now, you need to know that deleting Search.MyTelevisionXp.com will not solve your problem, but it is definitely the first step to do. Once this hijacker is gone, you had better check your system for other infections.

This search engine also has a toolbar or at least a toolbar-looking bar at the top of its main page. There are several easy-access links on it beside a search box. However, clicking on those buttons might lead you to unreliable third-party websites where you could be introduced to lots of potentially harmful third-party ads. Search.MyTelevisionXp.com may also collect information about you that could be shared with third parties. This is what the Privacy Policy has to say about this:

BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO GRANT My Television XP™ PERMISSION TO COLLECT YOUR URLS AND SEARCH DATA, INCLUDING SEARCH QUERIES THAT MAY CONTAIN PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION, SHARE THEM WITH THIRD PARTIES, AND USE SEARCH-RELATED COOKIES

Can you imagine what might happen if your personally identifiable data lands in the wrong hands? Have you ever heard of cyber criminals and online fraud? If you would like to avoid the unfortunate encounter, you need to remove Search.MyTelevisionXp.com as soon as possible.

If you want to take action and get rid of this useless browser hijacker manually, you can do it in two steps. First, you need to uninstall the application via Control Panel. Second, you need to take care of the browser extensions in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Do not forget about the other threats that may also have entered your computer. Maybe it would be the right time to consider the installation of a proper security tool in order to protect your PC from future attacks.
