What is TornTV and How To Remove It

TornTV is an unwanted application that may offer ways to watch TV online or through your computer. The TornTV program is most often installed through the installation of various bundled software or freeware programs downloaded from the internet. TornTV may also act as a web browser hijacker causing your browser to redirect you to the Torn.tv website offering the TornTV services for “turning your PC into a TV”. TornTV may or may not fulfill its offer of turning your PC into a TV.

When TornTV is installed, it will load several files on your system including executable (exe) files that load into memory upon startup of Windows. When the executable of TornTV is loaded it is apt to displaying pop-up messages and automatically initializing the TornTV program.

Computer users may not find TornTV to be useful in most cases because it was not the main program downloaded. In the case of TornTV loading it was not the computer user’s choice as it was installed through another freeware program. Use of TornTV may not harm your system but it can be a serious annoyance especially if you did not ask for it to be installed or never use its offered features.

Removal of the TornTV program is essential to rid your system of any pop-up messages that it displays and to stop it from loading automatically at startup of Windows. In some instances the uninstallation process for TornTV is difficult to perform as it does not have a means of removing it from your Windows control panel. In such a case, TornTV may be automatically removed using an updated antimalware application like SpyHunter. This removal method will ensure all files associated with TornTV are removed and that it does not load anymore upon starting your computer, potentially freeing up memory and allowing your PC to run faster.
