Do you know what Find Forms Fast is?
Find Forms Fast may show up in your main browsers as your new homepage and new tab page, but you may not remember installing it. Our researchers say that this new potentially unwanted program (PUP) comes from the Polarity family that includes dozens of identical and similar tools, such as My Weather Radar and Get Sports. Although this tool does not mean direct danger, it may still pose a threat to your system security by displaying potentially unreliable third-party web content. If you click on unreliable content, you could directly infect your computer or get redirected to malicious websites where you could be the victim of an online scam. Another suspicious thing about this PUP is that its presence may indicate malware infections hiding on your system, too. Therefore, we believe that it is best to remove Find Forms Fast from your computer.
It is quite unlikely that you have ever visited the promotional page, findformsfast.com, where you can directly install this worthless extension. This page is one of the simplest ever; it only has a small pop-up-like window telling you that you can have free forms available in your browser if you click the "Continue" button. The other official page is the Chrome web store, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/find-forms-fast/pnmgpnhekkdcnegoioancaodogohggob. Please note that whenever you install a Polarity product, you will be exposed to aggressive promotion campaign, which means that before you could think that you have installed your targeted application, you will be taken to a page where you will be pushed to install another useless tool. Because of this, you may have the feeling that your installation has not been finished so you need to continue by installing another extension. We believe that this kind of promotion should not be tolerated. In fact, this alone could be a good reason to delete Find Forms Fast.
Unfortunately, this PUP can also be found in questionable software bundles. So when you download free stuff using shady torrent and freeware pages like filewin.com and malavida.es, remember that you can easily drop a malicious bundle that may contain a bunch of malware threats as well as PUPs. This can also happen when you are viewing suspicious websites and click on random third-party ads. Of course, it is even more likely that you infect your system with more threats when it is already infected with adware programs or browser hijackers. So, if you want to use a secure computer, you should use a reliable online malware scanner after you delete Find Forms Fast.
This PUP changes your homepage and new tab settings to display search.dsearchm3f2.com, which is a questionable search website identical to Search.searchm3f.com, a previous threat in the family. Please note that this tool offers you quick links to official forms, which you can bookmark anytime using your browsers' built-in bookmarking function. This makes this extension totally redundant and unnecessary. You can also search the web using the PUP, but we do not advise you to do so. The search results could include questionable promoted content, such as affiliated ads and links. Even if you find yourself on a Yahoo search results page after sending your request, you should know that you cannot trust the results since they come through this PUP. If you do not want to let further infections on board or end up being scammed by cyber criminals, we suggest that you remove Find Forms Fast from your PC as soon as you can.
If you are ready with your verdict, you can use our instructions below. We advise you to reset your affected browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome, if you want to make sure that your browsers are clean of any possible threats. However, this will not necessarily secure your virtual world. The most effective way to do so is to install a trustworthy malware removal application, such as SpyHunter. But even if you do so, we recommend that you keep all your programs and drivers updated regularly because cyber crooks can find ways to exploit outdated software bugs and thus gain access to your system.

In non-techie terms:
Find Forms Fast is a new questionable browser extension from the Polarity team, who are responsible for dozens of potentially unwanted programs and browser hijackers. This tool is not even new in the sense that it is an identical clone of previous ones. This family contains several such clone twins or even triplets as well as similar tools. This application provides you with the usual search page, but this time it features links to official forms. Remember that you can always bookmark such pages if you really need them to be available. It is quite possible that you did not install this extension knowingly, which also means that there could be other threats on board. We recommend that you remove Find Forms Fast from your computer. If you would like to make sure that your PC is secure and stays that way, you should install a proper anti-malware program as soon as possible.
