LocalScavenger Toolbar

What is LocalScavenger Toolbar?

LocalScavenger Toolbar is an annoying browser plugin that might be added to your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browser. The toolbar itself is developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. and it does not differ from such browser plugins as RetroGamer toolbar, MarineAquarium toolbar, and Citysearch toolbar. Even though the toolbar itself is not very harmful, it might still cause you some security related problems, so it is better to get rid of it as soon as possible. If you do not want to remove LocalScavenger Toolbar, you can keep it, but you should know that you might cause harm to your PC and even end up with untrustworthy applications.testtest 100% FREE spyware scan and

How does LocalScavenger Toolbar act?

Even though LocalScavenger Toolbar promises to enable you access job, rental, and furniture classifieds and find local events, the truth is that it is not known whether it will do that. In addition, there is a possibility that you will be redirected to untrustworthy websites after clicking on any of those icons placed on the browser plugin. Furthermore, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com have noticed that ask.com will replace your homepage and search provider if you install LocalScavenger Toolbar. It is likely that a user agrees with the changes himself/herself, but does not notice that. If you have already noticed that ask.com has replaced your regular homepage and search provider, you should know that it is possible to get rid of it rather easily. We suggest doing that as soon as possible because there is still a possibility that you will be provided with third-party links that will redirect you to unreliable websites.

LocalScavenger Toolbar travels bundled with other undesirable programs. Our specialists say that several toolbars developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. might enter your system and thus occupy your screen. Of course, other undesirable programs, e.g. adware and various potentially unwanted applications might enter your system as well. If you have already installed LocalScavenger Toolbar or if it has appeared on your system without your consent, there is a possibility that untrustworthy programs have been installed alongside, so you should check your system’s condition. Of course, it is possible to detect untrustworthy programs manually, but the easiest way to do that is to scan the system with an automatic scanner.

How to remove LocalScavenger Toolbar

It is not enough to remove LocalScavenger Toolbar via Control Panel. Researchers have noticed that Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome users will have to remove extensions from browsers. Luckily, it is enough to delete LocalScavenger Toolbar via Control Panel if you use Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, the ask.com search engine will not disappear anywhere, so you will have to set another homepage and search provider manually. Of course, you can use an antimalware tool if you do not want to perform all those removal steps yourself. In our opinion, the SpyHunter antimalware suite is the best choice. Of course, we do not say that you cannot use another 100% trustworthy tool.
