The Results Hub

The Results Hub Description

The Results Hub is by a company called Candle Jar and marketed as a legitimate browser plugin. The Results Hub also claims to provide users with an improved browsing experience with advanced searching features. However useful as it may seem, The Results Hub is classified a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that exhibits adware symptoms. Adware developers use questionable delivery methods such as bundling to promote adware-related products such as The Results Hub. Consequently, users may inadvertently install ad-supported plugins such as The Results Hub. Users may also install The Results Hub from their official website at results-hub.com. If users look at their End Users License Agreement, it is explicitly stated that The Results Hub 'sets the default search settings in all of your compatible internet browsers' such as default search engine, homepage and startup pages. The Results Hub is also known to deliver intrusive online advertisements that may redirect users to third-party websites that may be considered questionable or promote such applications. Computer security experts advise users to remove The Results Hub from their computer with a legitimate anti-malware tool.
