Couponsbar

Couponsbar is a browser extension which has been developed by Mars Technologies Ltd. It is indicated that the extension is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers; however, it has been discovered that it is not available for Chrome at the moment. If you try to install the plugin from coupons-bar.com onto your Google Chrome web browser, you will be asked to accept the plugin on Firefox and IE browsers. The toolbar’s installer presents three different boxes indicating different options – the toolbar, the home page and the search provider changes. If you do not un-check the boxes, you will discover that search.coupons-bar.com is your new home page and Coupons-Bar Search is the new default search engine. If you have installed these search tools accidentally, you should continue reading to learn how you can remove Couponsbar related software.

Even though Couponsbar search tools are not considered to be malicious, it is clear that they are affiliated to third party advertisers because the top search results are sponsored. We recommend that you act carefully with these links because they might route you to unreliable websites. In fact, we do not advise trusting the search engine altogether because it appears to be linked to Snapdo. If you choose to change the suspicious home page, you will discover that it is identified as feed.helperbar.com. If you visit this page, you will be redirected straight to search.snapdo.com. This is a suspicious search engine as well because it presents sponsored search results and displays potentially unreliable banner advertisements. Since the Coupons-Bar Search is not considered to be reliable, we do not recommend trusting Couponsbar Toolbar either because it represents the search tool via a search box as well. Note that that the plugin is automatically disabled on Firefox with a warning that this toolbar can cause security or stability issues. Needless to say, this is a sign that you should delete Couponsbar from the browsers.

If you are determined to delete Couponsbar from the PC and the browsers, you can follow the manual removal instructions presented below. Make sure you perform every step with care in order to ensure that the undesirable software is deleted from the operating system successfully.
