BetterCareerSearch Toolbar is one of many examples of the Mindspark toolbar family. This one promises to make your job search more effective. That would be great if it provided something you couldn’t get by yourself, and wasn’t just a piece of annoying clutter on your web browser window. Keeping in mind its method of distribution as well as the things it does when installed, the possibility of it providing a vulnerable spot in the security of your system cannot be rejected. If you found the BetterCareerSearch Toolbar in your web browser, you must consider its removal.
BetterCareerSearch Toolbar is known to be distributed via free software bundles. When most people install a program, they often just click Next throughout the setup, looking for that Finish button. In case of freeware, they later start noticing various browser extensions and computer programs they don’t remember installing. It takes a lot of work to get rid of them all. Has that happened to you? Congratulations, you’ve become a victim of freeware bundling. Hopefully, the programs you just installed will not be dangerous. The Mindspark family-based toolbars can be bundled with malicious software. To avoid it, make sure to always choose Advanced installation and tick off any checkboxes offering to install something you don’t want.
If the functions that are claimed by BetterCareerSearch Toolbar sound useful, we have one thing to say: they are easily accessed over the Internet. Job search sites like indeed.com or monster.com, a salary calculator, or linkedin.com are all easily found with a simple search on Google, Yahoo, or Bing. Removing the toolbar from your computer might even lead you to finding some useful website you would have missed otherwise.
Speaking of search engines, BetterCareerSearch Toolbar could change your default home page and search engine to ask.com, especially on Internet Explorer. Why would a toolbar that states its aim to be helping you get a job, care what search engine you use? Might it be possible that the whole tool is just a ruse to promote ask.com? Uninstall it now and use whichever search engine or homepage you want.
By this point in the article, we are quite sure that you would like to get rid of BetterCareerSearch Toolbar from your system. If you don’t know how it got on your computer, a bundle is probably the culprit, so it would be a good idea to download a malware removal tool like SpyHunter, to check your system for any malware you might have caught together with the toolbar. We can also help you to delete BetterCareerSearch Toolbar manually.
