Removal instructions for ShowBox

Recommended Posts

What is ShowBox?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that ShowBox is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This one also displays advertisements.

This one uses deliberate misspelling in file and folder-names and misdated entries to avoid detection.

How do I know if my computer is affected by ShowBox?

You may see these or similar entries in your list of installed software:

How to remove Multiplug entries from your list of installed pograms

Since these entries are highly randomized and they are misdated on purpose they may be hard to find.

It is not a disaster if some remain behind, so if you are not sure it is better to leave them or ask for help.

In the "Control Panel" click on "Uninstall a program" under "Programs".

Select the offending entry and click on "Uninstall"

In these cases you may get one of these popups:

Read the text carefully, because clicking "Yes" may get you a new set of browser extensions.
