What is TheTorntvs V11-1?

TheTorntvs V11-1 pretends to be a legitimate and useful browser plug-in that enables watching sports, news channels, and other media in one place. It’s very similar to TheTorntv V10, TornPlusTV, and TornTV that are already included in our blog. All these programs are categorized as adwares or potentially unwanted program (PUP) and are not recommended using. Most of the anti-spyware programs detect a PUP.Optional.TornTV.A file on computers no matter which of aforementioned programs is found on Add/Remove Programs list. It means that they are clones and cause the same issues on contaminated computers. As soon as TheTorntvs V11-1 virus infiltrates the system, it may hijack Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and other less popular web browsers.Besides, it may install various registries, corrupt files, modify DNS settings, and even installs cookies to spy on its users. Beware that user’s permission is not asked to implement such activities; therefore, all these suspicious operations should not be tolerated, especially keeping in mind that this dubious program may collect non-personal information, (search terms, websites visited, data entered, time spent, IP address, email address, PC’s location, etc.) and send is to suspicious third parties. Be careful because it may even lead to privacy-related issues. In addition to that, this dubious app may show you various pop-up, pop-under, in-text, and banner ads. Security experts recommend ignoring ‘Ads by TheTorntvs V11-1’, ‘TheTorntvs V11-1 Offers’, ‘Powered by TheTorntvs V11-1’ and similarly marked messages because they may reroute you to questionable domains. Unfortunately, after TheTorntvs V11-1 redirects you may end up with virus or malware infiltration.

How can TheTorntvs V11-1 hijack my computer?

As we have already mentioned, TheTorntvs V11-1 is an adware that may also be found in other forms. It’s mainly distributed bundled with various freewares and sharewares. Therefore, if you suspect an adware to hide in your PC after unsuccessful installation of a freeware, you should wait no more time and remove TheTorntvs V11-1 virus or any of its clones. In order to prevent installing ‘additional components’ (add-ons, plug-ins, toolbarsm extensions), which are commonly spreading along with freewares, you have to be as careful as possible while installing them. Make sure that you select Advanced or Custom installation option (instead of Quick or Basic) because it’s set to disclose what third-party apps are traveling as ‘optional downloads’. After that, you have to read the entire installation wizard carefully and make sure that you unmark all ticks claiming that you agree to install apps, such as TheTorntvs V11-1 add-on. By the way, if possible, avoid third-party installers, such as Installrex, Vitallia, Amonetize, Softonoc, Soft32 and many others because in most of the cases they are bundled.
