EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar

What is EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar?

EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar is a browser plugin that should help users to access tools for editing photos and pictures. In addition, this software should help users to upload, store, and share images. At first glance, EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar looks like a really beneficial program. Therefore, many users who take pictures and edit them think that it will make this work easier for them. Unfortunately, the majority of users decide to remove EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar after a short period of time because it is definitely not as beneficial as it claims to be. In fact, it only provides links to other web pages, e.g. easyphotoedit.com, Instagram, Gmail, Facebook, etc. There is a risk that you will be redirected to an untrustworthy web page after clicking on any of those buttons, so it would be best to go to these websites directly. Of course, it is not the only reason why users decide to erase EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar. Some of them simply find the toolbar really annoying because it applies changes to browsers and appears at the top of all the browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) after the installation.testtesttest

How does EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar act?

Once EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar is installed on the system, it immediately creates its main folder EasyPhotoEdit_g3 in %Program Files% or %Program Files(x86)% depending on the version of the Windows OS. If you have detected this folder and it contains such files as g3skplay.exe, AppIntegrator64.exe, CrExtPg3.exe, and assist.exe, there is no doubt that you have a Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. product on board. Specialists have observed that this software will not only create its main folder, but will also make many modifications in the system registry. On top of that, the majority of users who install this browser plugin on their systems notice that their default homepages and search engines have been changed. Therefore, EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar is often considered to be a toolbar-hijacker.

Many users find the presence of ask.com surprising because they cannot remember agreeing to the changes themselves. In fact, users tend to agree with the changes themselves in most cases because they do not uncheck the checkbox in the installation window. Some of them do not want to keep this search engine, whereas others find ask.com rather useful. Ask.com itself is not a bad search provider; however, it might be modified by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. and thus show the sponsored content. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that users might even infect their systems with malicious software if they use ask.com to find the information on the web. Unfortunately, this might really happen because you might be provided with bad third-party links and they might redirect you to other web pages with an infectious content. As we have managed to find out, these third parties might also collect information about you like EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar:

  • Demographic data (e.g. age, zip, postal code, gender, etc.)
  • Data about the use of software
  • Data about the interaction with the advertisements displayed on third-party websites and applications
  • Interests and usage data (e.g. the pages a user views and links he/she clicks on)

In fact, this is not a finite list of details EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar and its partners are going to record. Therefore, we suggest that you eliminate this piece of software if you want to stop its activities.

Where does EasyPhotoEdit Toolbar come from?

Users who live in India, Algeria, Pakistan, Egypt, and the United States have to be especially cautious with this toolbar because it is the most prevalent in these countries. It seems that it mainly comes in software bundles together with other applications, which means that there is a huge possibility that it will enter without permission. As there is a very huge possibility to download a software bundle from a third-party web page, you should stop doing that ASAP. Users who want to be sure that untrustworthy software and similar toolbars cannot enter their systems should also install a security tool on their systems.
