What is Everyday Manuals Toolbar?
Everyday Manuals Toolbar is a new product by Mindspark Interactive Network, and it joins the family of such infamous toolbars as CalendarSpark Toolbar, EasyHomeDecorating Toolbar, or PackageTracking Toolbar. Although these programs do not have a good reputation, they are not considered extremely malicious or dangerous either. Instead, we classify most of them as potentially unwanted programs, and it is up to you to decide their fate. Obviously, you should not judge the book by its cover. If you trust that every harmless-looking program is, in fact, harmless, you might get burnt very fast. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com malware researchers advise researching all programs that you want to install to avoid letting in malware and useless software. If you have already decided that you want to remove Everyday Manuals Toolbar, you can check out the guide below, but we recommend reading this report first.
How does Everyday Manuals Toolbar work?
It is not surprising that Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer users choose to download Everyday Manuals Toolbar. After all, this program offers a unique service that many users are likely to find very beneficial. At least, it looks beneficial “on paper.” When it comes to the representation of this program, it is officially introduced to users at everydaymanuals.com/index.jhtml, as well as the Chrome web store. Unfortunately, it is also spread via installers that are promoted using suspicious pop-ups. We consider this unfortunate because other programs could be attached to the toolbar, and they could be malicious. Do not ignore the possibility of other threats running on your PC if you have let Everyday Manuals Toolbar in with a software bundle. If you examine your PC – we advise doing so with a malware scanner – and other threats are not detected, you can focus fully on the toolbar, and the search tool that is integral to it.
Are you familiar with the search.myway.com search provider? Chrome users will face this search tool via the New Tab, and Firefox and IE users will be forced to accept it as the homepage, as well as New Tab. We use the word “forced” because unless you check a box indicating that you accept the homepage change, you will not be able to proceed with the installation of the Everyday Manuals Toolbar. Search.myway.com is quite suspicious because it shows advertisements while hiding behind the name of Google. The “Enhanced by Google” tag is attached to this search provider, and this is meant to make users trust it more. In reality, we do not recommend trusting it at all because the ads will take over the bigger part of the search results page. Trusting ads can be dangerous if they are represented by unreliable parties. Do you know who stands behind each and every single ad? Of course, you do not, which is why you have to think twice before you click on the links shown to you via search.myway.com.
It is obvious that the search tool associated with Everyday Manuals Toolbar is suspicious, but what about the toolbar itself? This toolbar displays four different tabs that represent different links. The “Browse by Brand” and “Browse by Category” tabs open a window that represents different PDF files with technical manuals. The “How-Tos” section promotes links to wikihow.com, ehow.com, about.com, and similar sites, and the “DIY Ideas” section routes to sites that offer DIY projects, such as diy.org or doityourself.com. Although it seems that all links are authentic, you have to beware of suspicious and unfamiliar links.
