Thus, if you cannot stand such content, we doubt you will be able to enjoy surfing the Internet with the application’s provided search engine. According to our computer security specialists, the software’s search engine that becomes default once the extension is installed may redirect user’s queries through a particular server and then show the gathered results via a modified search.yahoo.com version. During this process, the results might be injected with unreliable ads, and if you want to learn how they could cause you trouble, we encourage you to review the rest of this report. On the other hand, if you have already decided to erase nJoySport Search we would recommend sliding below the article instead as there you will find our prepared removal guide; it will show how to get rid of this potentially unwanted program manually.

To begin with, we should mention the application can be encountered while visiting its official distribution website called njoyapps.com and the Google Chrome’s add-ons web page known as chrome.google.com/webstore. It cannot be found on sites offering Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer plugins because nJoySport Search is not compatible with the mentioned browsers. Besides the listed web pages the potentially unwanted program might be spread with bundled software installers, or it could travel with questionable pop-up ads you may notice while visiting unreliable web pages.

Soon after nJoySport Search gets installed the extension may replace user’s default search engine with a tool of its own. The problem is our researchers report the newly set search engine might be a modified version of search.yahoo.com. Moreover, when we tried searching with it, we learned it redirects user’s search queries to sport.eanswers.com and only then shows the results. At the time of the mentioned redirection, it is possible the potentially unwanted program could inject the results it collects with the modified search.yahoo.com version with advertisements from the third party, for example, it could be various sponsored links, pop-ups, etc. The worst part is there is not knowing what such ads might advertise. In other words, the ads may promote anything, including scam web pages, malicious content like viruses or other harmful programs, and so on. Naturally, in order not to risk encountering such material we would recommend replacing the nJoySport Search provided search engine with a more reliable one, for example, google.com.
