ButterflyField Toolbar

ButterflyField Toolbar is an application which you can attach to your Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer web browsers. The extension is represented at free.butterflyfield.com/index.jhtml, and our researchers have discovered that its developer is the infamous Mindspark Interactive Network. Some computer users may be familiar with this company because it stands behind such browser plugins as Gaming Wonderland Toolbar, OnlineMapFinder Toolbar, and Daily Bible Guide. Since the toolbar comes with one built-in easy-access button (Facebook) only, there is no doubt that its main purpose is to promote the ButterflyField screensaver. The program has also been discovered to promote Ask Web Search tools. If you are not interested in either of these, we recommend that you remove ButterflyField Toolbar.

Even though some computer users believe ButterflyField Toolbar to be a browser hijacker, in reality this application is just a regular browser plugin. Needless to say, it is not a beneficial extension and running it on the browsers is not something you are likely to be interested in. If you are one of many computer users who install software without paying too much attention to the presented information or Terms of Use, it is likely that you have installed ButterflyField Toolbar without realizing that this plugin comes bundled with Ask search tools. When you decide to click the download button on the official download page, you might miss the two boxes which are presented right above. These represent home page and search provider changes, and they are marked by default. This means that if you do not un-mark the two boxes and proceed with the installation of the toolbar, the search tools will be installed anyway. Luckily, you can remove home.tb.ask.com if you want to.

If you have downloaded Ask search tools accidentally, it is likely that you will want to delete them from the browsers. You may want to delete ButterflyField Toolbar as well because this extension is not exactly useful and running it has no purpose. In order to remove the undesirable software from the PC, you can follow the manual removal instructions which are presented below. Make sure you check all installed browsers to make sure that undesirable plugins and search tools are not installed onto them. If you have installed the toolbar using the services of third party distributors and additional software was installed alongside, you should use automatic malware removal software to ensure that potential threats are eliminated.
