What is Outfox TV?

Outfox TV is NOT a virus or malware. However, you should know that this program has been accused for various annoying and suspicious activities. This has encouraged some of security vendors to include it to 'potentially unwanted program' (also known as PUP) or 'adware' categories. The first and the most important thing that should be remembered about this application is that it may infiltrate your PC in a bundle with other free downloads. So, you may be surprised after detecting it on your machine and may also start thinking that it hijacked it just like viruses do. In reality, it has nothing to do with infiltration methods that are used by cyber threats. People just agree to install it on their computers because they don't bother to monitor installation of the freeware. That's why you should always check what programs are you installing and what attachments are offered in a bundle with them. If you would leave the checkmark saying 'Save Outfox.TV as a tab in web browser' or 'Show Desktop Launchbar on startup', you can easily let outfox.tv hijack your web browser. In fact, it may easily settle down on each of your web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc. In addition to that, you may notice continuous pop-up notifications during your browsing. This activity can't harm computer and can't lead it to the infiltration of malware. However, it may easily disturb your browsing on the web. After clicking on any of Outfox TV ads, you may be redirected to its official website or predetermined site that seeks to increase its page rank, visitors' number or sales. If you don't want to visit unknown websites and want to avoid Outfox TV redirects, you should remove this program from the system. You can do that with a help of manual removal guide, which is given below, or with a help of SpyHunter. This is especially recommended if Outfox TV virus has appeared on your PC system without a clear permission asked.

How can Outfox TV appear on my computer?

You can download this program from its official website outfox.tv. However, it should also be remembered that there are many other applications that are used to spread it without asking an appropriate permission. In order to avoid such downloads like this one, you should start paying more attention to freeware's installation process. This can be easily done by choosing a Custom or Advanced installation and unchecking such and similar check marks as 'I agree to install Outfox TV on my computer'. If this program gets there, it typically drops its own side bar, which provides the list of various TV channel streams. In addition to this, Outfox TV virus may also start displaying commercial ads, modify your homepage and initiate similar activities.

go to computer, c drive, program files. once you find outfox, open task manager, go to services and stop outfox services from the list as well as go into the properties and disable whatever you can disable for outfox. Now try and shift delete outfox from program files in c drive. you will get a pop-up saying a particular program is still running outfox. Go to task manager processes and look for that program (i believe it is desktopcontainer or something of the sort). to make it easier to find, make task manager window as large as possible and drag out the description section of under processes. go through it carefully, once you find the program that is still running outfox, stop it and go to its properties also and disable whatever can be disabled. At this point you should be able to shift delete outfox with no problem. leave a comment if this helped...ty.
