FromDocToPDF Toolbar

FromDocToPDF Toolbar is a browser extension which computer users usually download from the official website fromdoctopdf.com. The application can be downloaded onto Google Chrome browsers via the Chrome Web Store as well. As it has been discovered, the toolbar has mixed reviews, and while some computer users find it beneficial and reliable; others rush to delete it from their operating systems. Do you want to remove FromDocToPDF Toolbar? Continue reading the report to learn why the removal of this application is considered necessary in some cases.

Many computer users believe FromDocToPDF Toolbar to be a browser hijacker; however, our malware researchers do not agree with this statement. The home page and search provider modifications are legitimate, and you agree to them when you download the toolbar. If you do not want to use ask.com as the default search tool, you should not agree to the offered changes in the first place. Otherwise, you will need to think about the removal of undesirable search tools. If this is already a problem, you can use the manual removal guides presented below the article.

Even though FromDocToPDF Toolbar is not considered to be a malicious application, it can connect to the Internet without permission. What is more, the program launches on every system restart and initiates the service called FromDocToPDF_65Service. Even though this is how many applications run, you should be extra cautious if you have not agreed to such activity when installing the software. Note that this is the reason you may want to delete Popular Screensavers Toolbar, ConservativeTalkNow Toolbar, Citysearch Toolbar, and other Mindspark applications as well.

What is most suspicious about the toolbar is that it is related to undisclosed third parties. It is stated in the EULA that the plugin ‘may integrate, be integrated into, bundled, or be provided in connection with third-party services, feeds and/or content’. If you do not delete FromDocToPDF Toolbar, it is highly possible that you will be offered third-party installers, will be presented with sponsored links (e.g., via pop-ups), and tracking cookies will be introduced to spy on you and collect information on behalf of these parties. This suspicious activity is the main reason behind FromDocToPDF Toolbar removal.

You can follow the manual removal guides below to delete FromDocToPDF Toolbar from the operating system and eliminate the undesirable search tools. If you believe that other unreliable programs are running on the PC, you should not ignore your suspicions. We recommend installing an automatic malware removal tool which will scan the PC to disclose all existing threats, will remove them, and will make sure that your virtual security is supported at all times.
