What is SimplePictureEdit Toolbar?
Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. is a company that has already developed hundreds of browser plugins. SimplePictureEdit Toolbar is its newest product, and it seems that it targets people who take photos and need a tool to edit them. To find out more about this new product of Mindspark, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have decided to pay a visit to its official website free.simplepictureedit.com/index.jhtml first. SimplePictureEdit Toolbar is promoted as a very beneficial application there. It should enable users to create collages, convert files into a number of file formats, send photos via social-networking websites easily, and, most importantly, edit pictures. Therefore, as expected, there are people who download and install this piece of software on their computers willingly. Of course, it does not mean that all people allow it to enter their computers themselves. Some users cannot explain why they see a toolbar at the top and a new website is opened for them when they launch any of their browsers. Actually, not all the users, not to mention those who get it from a third-party source, know that this browser plugin will change the browsers’ settings upon installation even though it is clearly stated on the official website of this application that by clicking the Download button and installing SimplePictureEdit Toolbar users allow it to make modifications on all browsers installed on the computer. Of course, if you do not like how this program acts or feel that it has been installed on your PC without your consent, you can go to uninstall it whenever you want to.
What does SimplePictureEdit Toolbar do?
When SimplePictureEdit Toolbar is installed on the computer, it changes browsers’ settings by setting its own page. It will affect your homepage and the New Tab page on all browsers. This page contains buttons leading to third-party websites. No, it does not do anything very useful itself. Instead, it allows users to access third-party websites quickly. Some users find this feature quite useful, but it is definitely not worth keeping this program installed on the computer just because of that. Some users keep it because it has a search box and allows them to find the information quickly as well. In the opinion of specialists, it would be quite silly to let it stay because it has this search service when there are so many other trustworthy search tools available. On top of that, it would be a bad idea to keep it because it has been found that search results shown by the search engine available on the page set by SimplePictureEdit Toolbar might be untrustworthy. They are said to be unreliable because they might contain third-party links promoting third-party websites. These links have nothing to do with the search query entered. Also, according to specialists, it might be quite dangerous to click on these ads because they might redirect to untrustworthy third-party websites.
By installing SimplePictureEdit Toolbar on their computers users agree to allow it to perform different activities. If you install this program, you will allow it to read and change all your data on the websites you visit, read and change your browsing history, manage your downloads, and, finally, manage apps, themes, and extensions. As can be seen, it gets permission to do, basically, everything it wants to. If this bothers you a lot, you can go to delete this potentially unwanted program from the computer. It is the only way to disable it once and for all.

Unfortunately, it seems that it is not the only source this browser plugin can be downloaded from.
