How did the plug-in enter your machine

These types of extensions spread through free programs. Setup is also possible through browser stores or official web pages so you may have voluntarily installed it. But most often, they come as optional offers that install automatically together with the freeware, unless you do not permit them. And by using the most basic settings when you are installing freeware, you’re authorizing them to set up. Those settings fail to inform you whether something has been attached to freeware, so you must use Advanced (Custom) mode if you want to protect your machine. It’s easy to block installation if you run into attached offers, and all you need to do is unmark the boxes. Your computer may become exposed to all kinds of not wanted software when you are hasty during installation, so always be vigilant. You are advised to terminate WeatherTab, as the setup was possibly accidental.

You would gain nothing by keeping the extension. The main reason these suspicious add-ons even exist is to make website owners revenue by redirecting you. As soon as you permit the extension to set up into your machine, you will find your browser’s settings modified to show its sponsored page as your home website, new tabs and search engine. once the modifications are implemented whenever you launch your browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome), that portal will load at once. And you may not be capable of undoing the modifications without first needing to erase WeatherTab. Moreover, unknown toolbars will be adjoined to your browser, and ads could be bombarding your screen. These add-ons are mostly targeting Google Chrome users but that isn’t necessarily the case all the time. The plug-in may expose you to dangerous content, which is why we do not advise using it.
