TaxCenterNow Toolbar

What is TaxCenterNow Toolbar?

If you believe that TaxCenterNow Toolbar is a highly beneficial and trustworthy tool, you have been mistaken. This toolbar was created by Mindspark Interactive Network, a company that stands behind hundreds of suspicious applications/extensions. We classify all of them as potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), and, of course, deleting them is recommended. If you are not sure why that is a recommendation, you need to read this report, and you will soon understand the situation yourself. Do you want to remove TaxCenterNow Toolbar as soon as possible? In this case, you can use the instructions that are available below, but you should return afterward to learn more about this strange application/extension. If you install it using Internet Explorer, it is installed as an application. Chrome and Firefox users are introduced to it as an add-on. The PUP is sometimes classified as a browser hijacker, and that is because of the MySearch tool that is integrated in it. We discuss this in the report as well.test

How does TaxCenterNow Toolbar work?

TaxCenterNow Toolbar can be downloaded from taxcenternow.com/index.jhtm or the Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/taxcenternow/gniekamcipgopikgmjbckflmjigbiedc. These two are identified as official download sources. While there is no information regarding the numbers of users who have downloaded the PUP from the download page, the Chrome web store statistics indicate that the extension has been downloaded by over 27,000 users already. Similar numbers have been found represented along with the installers of OnTargetYoga Toolbar, HoscopeBuddy Toolbar, and many other toolbars created by Mindspark Interactive Network. Although official sources exist, some users report letting in TaxCenterNow Toolbar unknowingly as they interact with software bundles or unfamiliar installers. You need to check if you have downloaded any malicious threats along with the hijacker, and you can do that using a legitimate malware scanner. Hopefully, you do not need to deal with anything else besides the PUP, but if that is not the case, you want to learn about it as soon as possible. If you find malware, use the removal guides available on Anti-Spyware-101.com, or utilize an anti-malware program that will delete all threats automatically.

Should you identify TaxCenterNow Toolbar as malware that requires removal? That might not be just, but the program certainly is unreliable. Sure, it offers easy-access links to turbotax.intuit.com and hrblock.com – both of which are tax-related – but it does not offer anything else. Well, what about the easy-access links to facebook.com, gmail.com, amazon.com, instagram.com, and other popular sites? While these are legitimate, they do not make the application any more beneficial. You can simply bookmark these sites for easy access. Of course, the creator of this PUP did not create it to be useless. It is very useful for Mindspark Interactive Network and the company’s partners because once TaxCenterNow Toolbar is installed, it immediately starts recording information. Some of this information might be used to pick more personalized advertisements and offers, which can then be shown via the MySearch search engine. If you enter keywords into the hp.myway.com/taxcenternow/ttab02chr/index.html search field (in the center), you will be shown results that are taken from Google Search but are modified to include sponsored links. If you agree with us that the extension is not that trustworthy, you should delete it ASAP.

How to remove TaxCenterNow Toolbar

Even if you have found TaxCenterNow Toolbar to be quite useful, you have to agree that this extension is not that great. Sure, it can help you access certain sites quicker, but that is about it. Once you delete this PUP from your system, you can bookmark the sites represented by the toolbar for quick access. So, how should you delete TaxCenterNow Toolbar? That depends on whether or not you want to erase it manually. If you do, check out the instructions below. Note that resetting a browser or at least clearing browsing data is recommended too. Another option is to install anti-malware software. Of course, it would erase the PUP automatically. It is most important that it would eliminate other threats if they existed too. On top of that, you would not need to think about the security of your operating system because that would be handled by the anti-malware program too.
