Do you know what StreamFrenzy is?
Advertisements offering StreamFrenzy describe it as a tool that can allow the user “Listen to live, worldwide radio stations online and enjoy Web Search from one FREE Chrome New Tab!” Even though the extension is able to provide what it promises we still do not think it would be wise to keep it on the browser. First of all, our computer security specialists have classified it as a potentially unwanted program. It means the application could have undesirable qualities, for example, in this case, we learned StreamFrenzy might show suspicious third-party advertisements. Since depending where the ads come from some of them might be potentially dangerous, we would advise users to avoid them or better yet remove this potentially unwanted program and by doing so prevent it from displaying such content. As you continue reading our article, we will explain more about this questionable extension. For users who choose to eliminate it, we recommend having a look at the removal guide we added below the report as it could help erase it faster.

Another thing users should know about ads that might be shown by StreamFrenzy is the potentially unwanted program’s creators claim they “have no obligation to examine, review or monitor Third Party Content” and “have no control over and assume no responsibility for Third Party Content.” This could mean the ads may come from any source and there are no guarantees of their reliability. In other words, there is a chance some part of the ads might come even from potentially dangerous sources, for example, sites distributing adware, browser hijackers, or even malicious threats. Under such circumstances, we would advise erasing StreamFrenzy from your browser. Instead of its provided search engine, you could place a more reliable one like google.com or search.yahoo.com. As for the extensions toolbar with links to particular web pages you could bookmark these links and still access favorite sites just the same.
Users who do not want to keep this potentially unwanted program anymore can get rid of it manually by following our removal guide added at the end of the article. It will show how to delete data associated with StreamFrenzy step by step. Needless to say, if this process appears to be a bit too complicated, you could employ a reputable antimalware tool and do a system scan instead. Afterward, the tool should show the potentially unwanted program and other threats that could be hiding on the system. Also, you should be able to eliminate all of the listed detection with a single mouse click.

In non-techie terms:
StreamFrenzy is not a malicious application, but knowing it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs, it cannot be considered as reliable either. Our computer security specialists report it could show users questionable advertisements coming from unknown third parties. Since the extension's creators claim they do not review such content or take any responsibility for it, there is a chance some of it could be potentially dangerous. For this reason, we would advise our readers no to risk encountering it. In other words, we think it would be safer to get rid of this extension before anything goes wrong. If you think deleting it would be for the best as well, we encourage you to follow the removal guide available a bit above this text or employ a reputable antimalware tool of your choice.
