Adding Find My Nascar Lineup might result in it changing your homepage and a new tab too if you are browsing with Google Chrome. Also, the application could place a toolbar that should appear below your browser’s address bar. It might have links to websites providing various information. Plus, the toolbar ought to provide a search box. Our researchers say that if you search through this box or the add-on’s search engine that your homepage or new tab page might be replaced with, you might be redirected to a modified Yahoo search engine.
The results displayed by the modified Yahoo search engine could be a bit different from the ones you would receive by searching directly through search.yahoo.com. The difference might be seen in advertisements as the PUP could place ads from its third-party partners.
