MyTubeTheater

MyTubeTheater is a program that advertises itself as a player for watching online videos, so users tend to download it because they think that it is very useful. Unfortunately, it seems that all these promises are lies because people who install this program complain that it is completely useless. In fact, they do not even see any kind of program after the installation of MyTubeTheater and cannot open it because it does not have a GUI (graphical user interface). As can be seen, MyTubeTheater has not been developed to help users watch videos faster and easier. Therefore, you should not keep it. We will explain you how to do that in this article, so you should read it from beginning to end in order to find out how to delete this program. Read more »

TuneFanatic.com

TuneFanatic.com

If you are a lover of music, maybe, you would like a search tool that offers quick links to review and news sites, like TuneFanatic.com seems to do. However, it is quite possible that this search tool simply appeared as your new home page without your consent. In that case, your default search engine has also been set to Default-search.net. Since all these alterations may happen without your knowledge, TuneFanatic.com has been labeled as a browser hijacker. Since this hijacker affects all major browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer, you will not be able to have the same browsing routine as before if you keep this tool on your computer. There is also a good chance that this is not the only infection on your system right now, so, we recommend that you start your clean-up session by removing TuneFanatic.com. Read more »

VeeHD

VeeHD

VeeHD is one of the many adware applications that promise to improve your online video watching experience. However, computer security experts say that you should remove VeeHD immediately as this application will only slow down your browser, exposing you to potential security threats. Adware programs cannot be trusted because they could be exploited by almost anyone for content promotion and distribution. Since cyber criminals can also make use of such applications, you have to be very careful about what you download from third-party sources. The point is that adware programs NEVER get installed on target computers individually, so there is a need to take care of all the potential threats at once. Read more »

Filex

Filex

Probably the most annoying and disruptive thing you can encounter while surfing the web is advertisements displayed by adware programs, such as Filex itself. This application has no real function or use at all. It is an ad-supported program, which means that it generates income for its creators in the pay-per-click system. The more ads it puts on your screen, the more money it can possibly make. What’s more, the more relevant these ads are to you, the more inclined you will be to click on them. However, you might pay a steep price if you happen to click on an ad that has a corrupted link that redirects you to a malicious website. Therefore, it pays to know what kinds of dangers these ads might hold for you and your system. Removing Filex is the first step towards a cleaner and safer operating system. Please continue reading to learn more about this adware in detail. Read more »

MaxDownload

MaxDownload

MaxDownload may sound like a download manager that is at the top of the trade by maxing out and providing the utmost services a user might need when it comes to searching for and downloading torrent, music, or video files.

Because of its questionable reliability, our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com have labeled it as a PUP, i.e., a potentially unwanted program. This PUP may not flood your screen with annoying advertisements, but it also does not seem to do anything at all. Nevertheless, this application might be exploited by cyber criminals and used to spy on you, for example. That is why we recommend removing MaxDownload from your computer. Read more »

MyOneSearch

Are you on a lookout for the best web search tool? There is no doubt that MyOneSearch is not what you are looking for, and, even though it is promoted as a useful browsing tool, Anti-Spyware-101.com virtual researchers have found it to be quite unreliable.

In most cases, users find that they need to remove MyOneSearch after executing third-party installers that carry software bundles. If you are careless when installing software, you might replace your search settings by accident. Luckily, this is fixable. Read more »
