Popular Screensavers Toolbar
Popular Screensavers Toolbar is another product developed by Mindspark Interactive Network. The application is available for those computer users who run Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. Why do computer users choose to install this program onto their browsers? It is because it promises convenient web search, search homepage, and default search options. If you choose to install the plugin from popularscreensavers.com/dl/index.jhtml, you should notice that Ask search tools are presented as an additional offer. If you do not want to change the search tools installed on your browsers, you can decline them. We can help you remove Popular Screensavers Toolbar and Ask search tools if you have no use for them or if you have installed them accidentally.
Once Popular Screensavers Toolbar is installed onto the browsers, you will discover a new bar attached to your browsers. The toolbar presents links to Screensavers, Wallpapers and eCards related to the service of popularscreensavers.com. On the left of the toolbar you will discover the Ask search box which presents the search results of search.tb.ask.com. The same feature is relatable to Zwinky Toolbar, Video Scavenger Toolbar, MyScrapNook Toolbar, and other Mindspark applications. You will find that search.tb.ask.com is set as the default search page, alongside the home.tb.ask.com home page, if you do accept the installation of the new search tools. Unfortunately, many install them without even realizing it because they are set for automatic installation.
Even though Ask search tools are not considered to be malicious, you need to be cautious with all unfamiliar applications installed onto the operating system. The search provider is managed and supported by Mindspark, and the company may be affiliated to third party advertisers. Have you already discovered sponsored search results which are unrelated to your search queries? We advise against clicking on sponsored links because they could promote unreliable services and products. Note that these ads are not a responsibility of Mindspark or Ask, and you will interact with them at your own risk. Do you want to face potential virtual security risks?
You can delete Popular Screensavers Toolbar and remove Ask search from the browsers in no time. All you have to do is follow the manual removal guides which are presented right below. If you do face any issues with the removal – post a comment below explaining the problems you face and we will assist you shortly.
