What is SearchandStreamTV?
SearchandStreamTV is a potentially unwanted program that is incapable of providing you with any beneficial services. This PUP does exactly what any regular web browser would do in a sense that it finds the movies/TV shows you are interested in and provides sources that you can watch them on. These sources include Amazon, Hulu, or Netflix, and you do not need some weird extension to point you to them. Although this program might seem fun and useful, it is unlikely that it was created to help you out. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers believe that the objectives of this extension are to introduce you to sponsored search results and collect data that could be used to approach you with more attractive offers, even if these offers are provided by a different program. If you are not convinced that you should remove SearchandStreamTV from your operating system, please continue reading.
How does SearchandStreamTV work?
Have you downloaded this potentially unwanted program from searchandstreamtv.com? Have you acquired it via the Chrome web store? Maybe you have downloaded it from a third-party software distributor? It is very important to answer the questions regarding the distribution of this PUP. Although we do not advise installing this program altogether, we certainly do not advise installing it with the help of unfamiliar installers. There is a possibility that you will be introduced to third-party software if you use suspicious installers, and this puts a risk of installing malicious software. If you are exposed to unfamiliar programs, the first thing you need to do is research them because you do not want malicious threats entering your PC and corrupting your browsers. SearchandStreamTV itself can be installed onto Google Chrome, and, if installed, it automatically modifies your regular search results. Although some users are convinced that they need to delete this extension because it works as a browser hijacker, our researchers note that users accept the modifications when they install this program and go through the Permissions pop-up. This pop-up informs about the implementation of search.searchandstreamtv.com, the reading of data, and the communication with the so-called cooperating websites.
