A lot of users are surprised to see UnzipApp Toolbar when they launch their browsers; however, this is not the only change that meets the eye. It is possible that this toolbar has made some other changes in your browsers without your permission. Although users may find it useful to have a toolbar that offers quick links to file compressing and decompressing services among others, our researchers have found that UnzipApp Toolbar may behave suspiciously and might introduce users to unreliable third-party contents. Therefore, it has been labeled as a bad toolbar. Before downloading such a tool, you need to be sure that you have done your research about it not to end up with an extension that holds the slightest potential to put your system’s security at risk. Please read on to find out more and understand why you are better off removing UnzipApp Toolbar from your computer.
UnzipApp Toolbar has an official website, unzipapp.com, and it is available for installation directly from there, like we have seen it in the case of any other member of the Mindspark family, including DownloadManagerTool Toolbar and FunCustomCreations Toolbar. However, it is not the only way how users can get this toolbar on their computers. It seems that it can also be found bundled with malware infections. This can be really bad news for inexperienced users who are more inclined not to pay close attention while installing free software bundles and it results in more infections and security issues that they may be able to handle themselves. Thus, in order to keep your system free of threats, we recommend that after deleting UnzipApp Toolbar, you run a full system scan.
As its name suggests, UnzipApp Toolbar offers you easy-access links to third-party services, such as file compressing and decompressing as well as popular websites and e-mail services. It also provides you with a third-party search tool, Ask.com, which will be set as your home page and search engine once this toolbar is installed. This may even take place without your knowledge. Unfortunately, the developer, Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc., does not guarantee the reliability or correctness of any third-party services it provides. This means that you might be displayed unreliable third-party ads or sponsored links through these services that might redirect you to malicious websites. If you take your system’s safety and your privacy seriously, you must stay away from such ads and links. That is why the best solution is to remove UnzipApp Toolbar ASAP.
Since this toolbar affects all three major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, after uninstalling UnzipApp Toolbar via Control Panel, you need reset them all. It is essential not only because of the extensions, but also because of the altered home page and search engine settings. If you follow our guide below, you should have no problem accomplishing this process. Although, we need to remind you that getting rid of the toolbar and its components may not mean that you are totally infection free and you can sit back and relax. It is important to make sure that there are no other threats hiding on your PC. The best way to do that is by using a trustworthy malware remover that can automatically clean your system of all the known malware infections and keep it safe if continuously updated.
