I wrote this article to help you remove TelevisionAce Virus. This TelevisionAce Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

TelevisionAce is a toolbar dedicated to television. The extension offers free streaming services, along with several additional features. You can use TelevisionAce to watch free TV online and get one-click access to top paid streaming services. To make it easier to choose what to watch, you will be provided with show re-caps, reviews, and interviews, as well as the latest TV news. With instant access to TV listings, you will be able to tune in whenever you feel like it. The description on the program’s official website makes it look like a wonderful utility to have, but there are certain things omitted there. For starters, TelevisionAce changes the homepage and default search provider. This has an effect on the search results. Another inconvenience is that the rogue program generates advertisements.

TelevisionAce is available for download from its official website, televisionace.com. There are several neon green download buttons. If you decide to get the extension, you will be asked to accept its end user license agreement (EULA) and privacy policy. The breakdown shown reveals that the program will be given authorization to read and change all your data on the websites you visit, as well as your browsing history. It will also be allowed to manage your downloads, apps, extensions, and themes. You should not agree to allow an application to operate with your tasks or access your private data. If you do not remember acquiring TelevisionAce, you were likely tricked into giving it access to your system. There are several ways for this to happen.

TelevisionAce can be transferred to your computer with the help of another program. Pirated utilities, freeware, and shareware can serve as a host due to their lack of a protected license. A developer would merge the executable of the furtive tool with the setup wizard of the download client. The hijacker will be mentioned as a bonus tool along the installation steps. It will be included per default. If you accept the original settings, you will have to deal with the consequences of your negligence. A lot of computer users are in the habit of skipping through the steps and agreeing to everything in haste. This may save you a few minutes, but the time spend in removing a parasite from your PC could be much more. This is why we advise people to always take the time to read the terms and conditions.

Spam emails are another common alternative. Programs like TelevisionAce can be hidden behind an attached file. With the help of a script or macro, the payload of the rogue tool will be transmitted to your computer when you access the file. If you could recognize spam, you would be able to prevent this from happening. It is not difficult to filter your in-box. Just check the email address. A genuine notification would be sent from an official account. Since spam is often presented as coming from a reputable company or organization, it is easy to check the source. Go to the official website of the corresponding entity and refer to the contacts page.

When TelevisionAce gets installed to your system, it will start exploiting your web browser. First, the sinister program will render your settings. Your homepage and default search engine will be reset to a different website and you will not be able to revert back. The hijacker is programmed to enforce the custom settings by appending them again when the user tries to edit them. TelevisionAce will display ads on your screen. They will feature bargain deals for technological devices, garments, accessories, decorations, furniture, gardening equipment, sports gear, games, toys, and other items. It may look as though the tool is working in your favor, but this is not the case. The ads link to sponsored websites. The owners of TelevisionAce get paid to support them.

If you read the EULA on the official website of TelevisionAce, you will discover that the entity behind the software has disclaimed responsibility for third party content. Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. is disclosed as the company behind the extension. In its privacy policy, the Yonkers, New York-based company has stated that it collects data on users. This can include personal and financial details which should remain confidential. The owners of the hijacker can sell the gathered information on darknet markets without your knowledge or consent. TelevisionAce does not accommodate settings which allow users to limit or prohibit the tracking activity. Ultimately, the only solution to the problems at hand is to uninstall the malicious program.
