How to Uninstall Outfox.TV - Delete Outfox.TV Manually

Outfox.TV is a nasty and risky browser hijacker virus which claims that it will help computer users boost their experience of web browsing.

If you pay little attention to installing freeware, the malicious virus will be silently injected into your bookmark list on your browser whose shortcut will be attached to your desktop. After getting installed onto your affected browser, Outfox.TV virus will hijack your browser (such as IE, Firefox and Chrome) and redirect your online search to unexpected harmful web pages.
