AntiGravity Tab

By GoldSparrow in Browser Hijackers

AntiGravity Tab is a parasite that may appear on your computer out of nowhere while you are browsing the Internet. What makes this happen is that some applications may use a method called 'bundling' to gain access to a computer stealthily since it will be included in the download and installation of a free program that you got from the Web. This is a condition that can be avoided easily by paying attention to what is behind the application you are introducing to your machine and always choosing the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' download methods, which will give you the choice of preventing the entrance of an unwanted program. As soon as AntiGravity Tab is inside a computer, it may alter the new tab component so that it can set up its search page, change your Web browser to AntiGravity Tab is classified as a browser hijacker and a Possibly Unwanted Program due to its forced entrance and the many problems it may cause to an affected computer. AntiGravity Tab is advertised as an innovative way to browse the Web and its ad claims:

However, computer users that are using Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer also may be affected by AntiGravity Tab. Although AntiGravity Tab, by itself, is not threatening, using its search engine may bring inaccurate search results and clicking on the advertisements it may display may lead to suspicious websites. The removal of browser hijackers may turn out a complicated task since you will need to find the application that brought it to your machine, remove it, as well as the extra components that AntiGravity Tab may have installed onto your computer. Therefore, it will be easier if you use an anti-malware instrument to remove it automatically.
