Do you know what nJoyMovies Search Plus is?
If you do not know how to remove the application nJoyMovies Search Plus, you have just come to the right place. According the description of the nJoyMovies Search Plus browser extension, it is a free application that should enhance your browsing behavior by enabling you to easily browse the Internet. The application should also provide you with quick access to movies, reviews, trailers, and news without only with a few clicks. The browser extension is promoted on the website njoyapps.com alongside some other similar programs, but if you click the Add to browser button, you are redirected to the Chrome Web Store, where a vaguely formulated description is provided.
The fact that nJoyMovies Search Plus is present in the Chrome store does not prove that the browser extension is indeed reliable, even though Google attempts to ensure that their clients get the best software. The extension falls to the category of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), so we recommend that you consider removing this application even though you think that nJoyMovies Search Plus is a revamp of your browser.
As for the distribution of nJoyMovies Search Plus, the official website and the Chrome store are not the only sources that you can access to get this application. The nJoyMovies Search Plus browser extension is also promoted by pop-up advertisements, which you can encounter on advertising-supported websites. Moreover, a pop-up promoting nJoyMovies Search Plus may appear on your screen if some adware program is installed. Staying away from websites that allow third parties to show their advertisements is highly recommended, as well avoiding bundled software installers. More specifically, free software, including desktop programs and browser add-ons, are frequently spread by bundled installers, which is done because of the tendency for users to ignore the information shown by software installers. The more attention you pay to software installation, the less trouble you have after the installation process is finished.nJoyMovies Search Plus screenshot
