InboxAce Toolbar

If you are using Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox to browse the Internet perhaps you have encountered a browser plugin that offers you instant email access – InboxAce Toolbar. This toolbar provides direct link to Gmail, hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL and even Facebook direct messages, so if you install the plugin on your browser; all the email notifications are directly delivered into the toolbar. It is definitely useful if you have more than one email account in different domains, but general warning remains – InboxAce Toolbar is a potentially unwanted program that could cause various security risks, so you should remove InboxAce Toolbar from your PC to prevent possible malware infections.

The main reason why you should be weary of InboxAce Toolbar is My Web Search. My Web Search is a search engine that is often mentioned in articles about browser hijackers. The thing is that, InboxAce Toolbar comes bundled with additional installation files for home page and search engine modification. That is to say, if you install the full setup for InboxAce Toolbar, your home page changes to either My Web Search (home.mywebsearch.com) or Ask (home.tb.ask.com). Keep in mind that InboxAce Toolbar does not hijack your browser – the toolbar installation requires user intervention. Therefore, even if you do not download InboxAce Toolbar from its official website, and the toolbar comes bundled with freeware from third party websites, you are still the one who installs the toolbar along with all of its components.

The default home page change presents the highest security risk, because both search engines display commercial advertisements. These advertisements are usually embedded by third party websites, and neither My Web Search nor Ask Search reviews the ads before adding them into their home page. As a result, the websites related to InboxAce Toolbar can be exploited by cyber criminals to deliver ads that contain links to malicious websites. Not to mention that the plugin may slow down your browser by absorbing your system resources.

The bottom line is that, even though the extension in question is not a computer virus, it is highly recommended to remove InboxAce Toolbar from your computer to make sure that no potentially dangerous programs enter your PC.
