IncrediBar is a browser helper object (BHO) that is supposed to upgrade the browsing experience, but it only installs toolbar and additional adware programs that interfere with the user's Internet browsing habits. IncrediBar comes with freeware and bundled downloads, and most of the time the user installs this BHO himself during the installation of another program. For example, sometimes when you install a media player or a file sharing program, you are asked whether you want to install various toolbars and additional applications. Usually they are installed automatically, but if you can UNCHECK them, DO so, because if you don't you might as well end up with IncrediBar in your system.
Just like any other BHO, IncrediBar can breach your privacy and monitor your browsing habits. It monitors your activity on the Internet so that later on it could send you a load of commercial advertisements catering to your "tastes". Also, IncrediBar installs other suspicious toolbars and applications that can slow down overall system performance, or cut down the Internet speed.
One of the most annoying symptoms of IncrediBar infection is countless redirections to IncrediBar's homepage at mystart.incredibar.com. Your default homepage will also be changed to IncrediBar's homepage, and if you have various favorite websites saved on your browser, IncrediBar will be sure to change them with random websites that all redirect to pages related to IncrediBar. To put it simply, no matter which browser you're using (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome), IncrediBar restricts your Internet browsing freedom and controls you like a puppet, directing you to one website or the other, even if you have no intention of opening those pages.
IncrediBar does not even allow you to successfully utilize such search engines as Bing or Google, so the only way to get your Internet freedom back is to remove IncrediBar from your computer. This BHO obviously does not want to be removed and manual removal can prove to be quite tricky. Therefore, if you want to make sure that the BHO removal is successful, you should erase IncrediBar with SpyHunter, because SpyHunter recognizes this BHO as a potentially unwanted program during the system scan and can remove it automatically. Automatic IncrediBar removal also makes sure your computer is scanned for any other possible infections.
