How did I get infected with CinematicFanatic?

They will use trickery and lure you into doing it unintentionally. The CinematicFanatic toolbar may have arrived as a bundled program. The scheme is simple. Developers add the malicious tool to the installation files of many free programs. Ones the user starts the installation of such a bundle, you will face two setup options: a standard installation and an advanced one. If you prefer the standard method, you must change your habits. This option is completely automatic. Once you start this process, it will install all extra apps. Opt for an advanced option instead. Under it, you can deny the installation of any unwanted tools.

If you think that something is suspicious, abort the installation immediately. The key to a secure and infection-free computer is caution.
Why is CinematicFanatic dangerous?
The CinematicFanatic toolbar brings only troubles. It has infected your browsers and has full control over them. You have seen your new homepage. However, have you noticed that your default search engine is also replaced? Now. All search results you are seeing are corrupted. All often. No matter the provider. The hijacker injects fake search results. These, most of the time, are adverts. Yet, they are not marked as such. Doing an objective online research is an impossible task. You can’t be sure which entries are organic and which are promoted. Furthermore, the toolbar does not distinguish between legit and shady websites. In fact, dodgy websites pay hefty sums for their links to be displayed at the top. You can’t trust anything you see on your screen. Even the ads themselves may be dangerous. Hackers often use such applications to spread malicious content. If you have the misfortune to click on a corrupted ad, you may download a virus.
