What is SocialDownloadr Toolbar?
SocialDownloadr Toolbar might appear at the top of your browsers if you install SocialDownloadr on your system. It is available on socialdownloadr.com, and it claims that it will help you to backup all your photo albums and easily get the photos you are tagged in from social-networking websites, e.g., Facebook. The application might seem to be really beneficial at first sight; however, many users think that they have made a huge mistake by installing this software after they notice that it has modified their homepages and default search engines without permission. Users find the toolbar, which will probably be added to Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, rather annoying, too. In order to remove SocialDownloadr Toolbar and restore the other settings which have been applied, you have to remove SocialDownloadr program from the system. It might not be very easy to do that, so we are going to help you with that in this article.
How does SocialDownloadr Toolbar act?
As we have already mentioned, you might not only see the SocialDownloadr Toolbar at the top of your browsers after you install SocialDownloadr program or it slithers onto your computer without permission, but you might also notice that your homepage and search engine have been replaced by search.socialdownloadr.com. This web page looks like a regular search engine. Unfortunately, we do not think that it can be fully trusted. According to the researchers at anti-spyware-101.com, you should be very careful with it because it might present you with all kinds of advertisements. It will place them together with legitimate search results, so the possibility of clicking on them is very high. It might be dangerous because nobody knows where these links will redirect you. What’s more, researchers say that there is a slight possibility that search.socialdownloadr.com will collect information about your browsing activities. The information it collects will be non-personally identifiable information, but, if you still do not like that, you can get rid of SocialDownloadr software.
SocialDownloadr (also named SocialDownloadr Toolbar by many researchers) can enter your system without permission even though its official website exists. This is another reason why we do not think that it can be trusted. As this program is distributed via software bundles in most cases, there is a slight possibility that other suspicious programs have been installed on your computer, too. These might be potentially unwanted programs, adware, and others. You can find out whether or not they are installed by scanning the system with the diagnostic scanner.
