At the time of research, this potentially unwanted application worked on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer only, but we are sure your Google Chrome will be affected too if you install I Need Directions Now when it is fixed. The page promoted by this potentially unwanted application does not differ much from a basic search provider. It has an ordinary search box in the middle of its Start page and a small search box located in the top-left corner. Also, it contains quick-access buttons that open maps, gas prices, and a local weather forecast at the top. Speaking about its search provider, it is powered by Yahoo; however, it might still show some sponsored search results, specialists say.
