You can get NoteHomepage Toolbar from Its dedicated distribution website at Notehomepage.com/index.jhtml. This site claims that this toolbar will help you organize your notes and lists. Basically, it offers a gimmicky feature that is supplied by third-parties. We are more concerned with this program’s secondary distribution channel which involves the use of third-party software installers. Researchers say that the installers contain bundled software that is installed automatically. Thus, this program can enter your PC secretly. The sites that feature those installers are subject to change. However it is likely that they are hosted on freeware sites and other websites that advertise the software and redirect to its download website. The channels used to distribute it are subject to change, however, but these two methods of dissemination are currently in place and you ought to avoid visiting its main site and not visit shady software distributing sites.

This search engine redirects all search queries to Google Custom Search which is not the same as Google.com because its search results can be customized by Mindspark Interactive. The customized search results can feature promotional links that can redirect you to various survey-featuring sites as well as sites promoting shady software.
