CM Movies virus
CM Movies (also found as CM Addon) is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that has been flagged for suspicious behavior. CM Movies is essentially adware that accesses and collects browser activity and displays targeted advertisements across Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
CM Movies uses browser helper objects (BHOs) that install to a Microsoft Windows Operating System, as well as browser add-ons and extensions that attach to affected Internet Browsers. These add-ons and extensions often have permissions set that allow them to access, observe, and ultimately collect user information, such as browser activity, browser history, bookmarks, and more.
Collected user information is used to display targeted advertisements, or advertisements that the platform feels are relevant to the internet user. Advertisements generated by this program often contain text that says something similar to “Ads by CM Movies” on them.
CM Movies add-ons and extensions may also have permissions that allow them to change browser settings, including bookmarks and themes, as well as existing browser settings, such as the homepage and default, managed, and provided search engine (depending on the affected browser). This can cause influenced internet browsers to redirect to and start-up on suspicious websites such as Lasaoren.
This CM Movies removal guide will help you remove the CM Movies virus and uninstall CM Movies malware from Windows in order to get rid of unwanted pop-up advertisements and browser redirects on Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
