What does DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar do?
Users say that the biggest advantage of this browser plugin is the ability to click on a button placed on it and access the particular website very quickly. Its buttons lead to such popular music-related websites as vevo.com, pandora.com, freemusicarchive.org, popkwiz.com, and others. These websites, of course, can be accessed easily by typing their addresses in the URL bar of the browser, so it is not necessary to have DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar installed on the computer to open them. According to specialists, users should delete this browser plugin as well as remove the homepage and the New Tab page it sets despite the fact that it looks useful and legitimate. Researchers say that it might be quite dangerous to use the MyWay search engine as the one and only tool to search for the information on the web because, even though it displays Google search results, it might be slightly modified and thus show promotional links. It is dangerous to click on these links and advertisements because untrustworthy web pages the developer of this toolbar has no control of might be opened. Unfortunately, ignoring them is not a solution to the problem either because it is not that easy to recognize those commercial ads and links.
This Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. product cannot be trusted fully also because it might collect different types of information about users. For example, information willingly submitted by a user, information about the computer/device, and demographic information. DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar is not the only one that might collect details about you. It has been found that third parties, including advertising companies and ad networks might use data tracking technologies to find out the relevant information about users too. This might quickly result in the violation of your privacy because the gathered data is always shared with third parties. You can protect your PC from harm only by getting rid of this questionable browser extension.

According to researchers at anti-spyware-101.com, it is very likely that this toolbar is spread in software bundles.
