HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar

What is HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar?

HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar may seem like a great idea to have in your browsers since this questionable browser extension offers you image editing capabilities straight from its featured search page. However, our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that it may not be a good idea to keep this potentially unwanted program, or PUP, in your browsers because it may introduce you to questionable contents. In fact, this PUP is a new member in the ever-growing Mindspark toolbar family that has given us hundreds of redundant tools that sometimes may be considered as useful by unsuspecting users. Unfortunately, this browser extension can enter your system in questionable ways, which also means that malware infection may be present and expose you to more malicious contents. Leaving these system security issues unaddressed could be a big mistake and dangerous one as well even if this particular PUP may not mean direct threat to your system. This is why we suggest that you remove HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar from your computer. Please read on to find more details about this questionable tool and how you can protect your PC from future invasions.testtest

Where does HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar come from?

It is possible though we doubt that you are one of the few people who actually landed on one of the two official pages that promote this PUP; the official page at holidayphotoedit.com/index.jhtml and the Chrome web store page at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/holidayphotoedit/ompcmhnafgchjgmdcdopfhlebohkgall. You can directly install this tool on these pages; however, we would like to warn you to always read the content of the pop-up window that is displayed at the top when you are about to add this or any other extension for that matter. This pop-up lists the rights you need to give your tool so that it can fully operate. When it comes to potentially unreliable applications like this one, you may want to reconsider some of these rights, i.e., if it is a good idea to grant them. We certainly believe that it would be a mistake not to delete HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar after learning what it can actually do in the background even if with your permission.

Obviously, there are more users who install this PUP via deceptive methods like software bundling or by clicking on compromised pop-up ads. The former case is definitely the worse of the two since this is when you may end up with a bunch of PUPs and malware infections in one single go. You should always be extra careful when installing bundles because these installers can be quite tricky to make sure that unsuspecting users install the whole content by default. Always select the custom installation option instead of the quick one because this is how you may reveal the browser setting changes and additional programs that will be installed unless you deselect them. In order to make sure that no threats remain on your system this time, we advise you to scan your computer with a reliable malware scanner after you remove HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar from your browsers.

How does HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar work?

This Mindspark toolbar does not actually seem to have the usual characteristic fake toolbar at the top. Instead, it shows you the current time up there and a row of quick links below the main search box in the middle of the page. These quick links include tools to upload and edit your photos, and may take you to third-party photo editing-related pages, such as "ribbet.com/app/?create_collage#/collage/grid," "photocollage.com," and "freepdfconvert.com/pdf-jpg." But you can also find the usual popular links as well to Facebook, YouTube, and Gmail. While these links may be safe to visit, you might be exposed to questionable third-party advertisement, which may always be risky to engage with.

When you install this PUP, it changes your home page and new tab page settings in your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers. It promotes a questionable search engine, int.search.myway.com, that may show you manipulated results to promote third parties. This simply means that you should not randomly click on any content the search results page may show you because you could end up on a malicious website in the center of an online scam. If you would like to avoid the sad consequences, you should remove HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar as soon as possible.

How can I delete HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar?

As a matter of fact, even the uninstallation page this extension redirects you to displays a potentially unreliable third-party ad, which can again be a source of potential further infection. If you want to get rid of the Internet Explorer extension, you need to activate the uninstaller in Control Panel. As for the other two main browsers, it is best to reset them. You can find our instructions below this article if you prefer manual removal. You may have realized that your PC needs more efficient protection if you want to be secure in your virtual world. This is why we suggest that you install a trustworthy anti-malware program like SpyHunter.
