The Funky Stream is a Chrome extension that has been categorized as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) due to the lack of useful features and the fact that its installation may bring unnecessary changes to the configuration of Google Chrome. The changes that Funky Stream is known to bring concerns the default search aggregator – the add-on may change it to Funkystream.com.

Although this task can be accomplished manually, you may want to take care of it with the help of a suitable computer security utility since this can ensure the full removal of all of the Funky Stream’s files.
