What is CreateDocsOnline Toolbar?
CreateDocsOnline Toolbar is a new product of Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. As a consequence, it has been put into the category of Mindspark Toolbars. Like other applications developed by this company, it is promoted as a useful tool. It claims to be a free alternative to MS Office programs. To be frank, it works quite well. Users can access Zoho tools for creating documents in different formats (e.g. .pptx, .pdf, .txt, .odt, and others) online. Therefore, specialists do not think that it would be fair to call it a malicious application. In their opinion, the more suitable category for CreateDocsOnline Toolbar would be a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it does not do anything really harmful, but it still cannot be trusted fully and might be associated with certain issues. If you are still not sure what to do with this potentially unwanted application installed on your computer, you should continue reading this article – the provided information will help you to make up your mind.
What does CreateDocsOnline Toolbar do?
To make it easier for you to decide about the destiny of CreateDocsOnline Toolbar, we have decided to start by describing how this application works. Actually, there is one main thing it does after entering a system successfully. It immediately changes a user’s homepage and New Tab URL by setting its own page. This page contains a search box (powered by search.myway.com) and quick-access buttons allowing users to create, edit, and save documents online. In addition, users should be able to access their emails in the blink of an eye by clicking on a single button Check Email. This might seem to be a useful feature, but, unfortunately, it does not make this page fully trustworthy. Users should be especially careful with the search box it contains. Although users see Google search results, they might still find the so-called modified search results on the search results page displayed to them. These modified search results might take users to untrustworthy third-party pages. In most cases, these websites do not contain any information associated with the search query entered by a user, which suggests that it will take longer for you to find the information you are looking for on the web if search.myway.com is used to perform web searches.
Where does CreateDocsOnline Toolbar come from?
CreateDocsOnline Toolbar has an official website (www.createdocsonline.com/index.jhtml), so, consequently, a number of users download this program from this page and install it on their computers. Unfortunately, it seems that it might be available for download on other third-party websites too. In this case, users install it next to free software. What is more, it is very likely that this potentially unwanted application might also be installed on a user’s computer when he/she clicks on a pop-up advertisement promoting this piece of software. Users usually come across these ads on third-party websites. As has already been mentioned, CreateDocsOnline Toolbar is not the only product developed by this company, so being more careful is highly recommended. What you should do to avoid undesirable software is a) install applications from their official websites only after making sure that they are 100% trustworthy, b) ignore advertisements promoting software, and c) install a reputable security application on the system and enable it.
It should also be noted that information about you will be collected day after day if you keep CreateDocsOnline Toolbar installed on your computer and use its search box to find the needed information on the web. There are several types of information that will be recorded, including details provided by a user willingly and automatically-captured information like IP address, browser type and language, and other browsing-related information. Third-parties, including “authorized service providers, IAC affiliates, advertising companies and ad networks” might also gather data about you. Go to put an end to this activity by removing CreateDocsOnline Toolbar.
