What is EverydayLookup Toolbar?
EverydayLookup Toolbar may seem useful for you if you want to look up phone numbers, addresses, and zip codes with the click of a button, but we must disappoint you – this is just another useless and potentially harmful toolbar coming from Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. This toolbar uses third-party services in order to provide you with the promised functionality; however, these may not be reliable at all times. There are several issues about this toolbar that make its presence on your computer undesirable. We do not think it is worth the risk to have this browser extension only to be exposed to potentially unsafe third-party websites. Removing EverydayLookup Toolbar is a must if you would like to keep your computer safe. For the whys and hows, please continue reading our article.
Where does EverydayLookup Toolbar come from?
Most commonly, there are two sources where you can obtain this toolbar from. One is the official source, which is its own website at everydaylookup.com, the other one is the “not-so-official” source, which means distribution via freeware bundling. This latter method is rather questionable as certain bundles may contain malware infections along with a legitimate free program. It is easy to download such an infectious package if you visit unreliable shareware or torrent websites; especially, if you are not familiar with the site. It is not that difficult to click on the wrong button or link when you do not realized that you actually click on a third-party ad that poses as a download button, for example. One click and you may face a couple of threats attacking your computer.
That is why we suggest that you be careful about your selection of websites to visit or download from. You can easily avoid such bundles if you only use reputable websites for download. It is just as important to only download tools and software that you make sure are legitimate and useful. We do not recommend installing any application that is even a bit risky or has a potential to indirectly harm your system. This way you can protect your system from a lot of malware infections even if not all of them. Deleting EverydayLookup Toolbar is an important step if you are a security-minded person. But do not forget about the other threats that may also be present. The later you act, the more damage they might do to your system and files.
What does EverydayLookup Toolbar do?
This unreliable toolbar is supposed to give you quick access to third-party websites, including White Pages and Addresses.com, which can help you to look up telephone numbers and addresses in order to identify people or find out details about them. This toolbar, just like all Mindspark toolbars, has a third-party search tool as well. In fact, when EverydayLookup Toolbar is installed, it makes changes to your browsers to set Ask.com as your home page, new tab page, and default search engine. While the official version offers you a chance to say no to these changes, the bundled version might not do so. Since this toolbar is free, you can imagine that the creators do need to make some money out of it. That is where the pay-per-click system comes into play. This toolbar may use the third-party services to display ads and links through them. For example, it is possible that you will be presented with a modified search results page. However, clicking on any ad on these related links, websites, or search results might redirect you to unreliable websites. You will be much safer if you remove EverydayLookup Toolbar from your computer right now.
