DictionaryBoss Toolbar

DictionaryBoss Toolbar may seem like a useful tool that helps you enhance your web browsing activities by providing you with various shortcuts to Wikipedia, Urban Dictionary, online translators, Spell Check and so on. It is, after all, a browser plugin that is created by MindSpark and it is very far from being a dangerous computer infection. Nevertheless, DictionaryBoss Toolbar is often categorized as potentially unwanted program due to the fact that it may come bundled with free software applications that are distributed on third party websites. If you did not intend to install this plugin on your computer, but it is there, remove DictionaryBoss Toolbar from your PC right now.

Since this toolbar is not the first one that has been created by MindSpark, it is not very hard to find out what one can expect of it. DictionaryBoss Toolbar is closely related to such browser extensions as MyFunCards Toolbar, Daily Bible Guide, Cursor Mania Toolbar and others. All of these extensions come equipped with Ask Search home page and search engine. It is also worth mentioning that DictionaryBoss Toolbar is compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers, and you can easily choose whether you want your home page changed to or not.

What is more, is not the only website where you can download DictionaryBoss Toolbar at. Such browser extensions more often than not come bundled with freeware (as it has been mentioned in the first paragraph) and then you may install the plugin unintentionally. It happens rather frequently actually, because users tend to go through the installation process automatically, without reading the setup steps.

Although both DictionaryBoss Toolbar and Ask Search website are absolutely legal, it is highly possible for them to be hijacked by third parties. This extension has a relatively loose privacy policy which means that it is not responsible for any third party ads or external links that you get displayed via Ask Search website. It is important to remove DictionaryBoss Toolbar in order to prevent possible malware infection. Refer to the instructions below to delete the plugin manually and then perform a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner, because you need to be sure that there are no other potentially dangerous programs in your system.
