Search.searchwatchyourtsn.com is a dubious website and a browser hijacker that supposedly allows you to watch TV shows. Hijackers are not classified as malicious programs but they are very annoying. Search.searchwatchyourtsn.com will hijack your browser and set itself your homepage and new tabs without your permission and you will be stuck with it until you remove Search.searchwatchyourtsn.com. Hijackers are really irritating to deal with because they enter and change settings without authorization and then try to redirect users to sponsored content so that they could generate traffic.
More traffic means more money for site owners. What is rather worrying is that some hijackers can lead users to malicious content and essentially let malware into computers. You allowed the hijacker to install onto your computer when you were installing freeware. The hijacker being on your computer means you need to learn how to correctly install free programs. In the mean time, delete Search.searchwatchyourtsn.com.
How does Search.searchwatchyourtsn.com spread?
It was attached to free software as an additional item that you could have chosen not to install. When you install freeware, you need to manually deselect everything that has been added to it. Simply choose Advanced or Custom settings during installation and you will see everything that has been added. If there indeed is something, simply deselect the extra offer box. You can then proceed to install the freeware. If you use Default settings, do not be surprised if one day you will find some hijacker or adware on your system. It is quite easy to uncheck a box, it would be much more difficult to remove Search.searchwatchyourtsn.com or similar after it has already installed.
