It is also possible that you do not remember installing this toolbar and yet it is there in your browsers. You may also not recall allowing browser setting changes and that is why you may think that your browsers have been hijacked. However, it is most likely that you simply did not realize the checkboxes in the installation wizard. Not knowing about the potential risks in connection with this bad toolbar might put your system’s security at risk. That is why we recommend reading our full article for the details and to know why and how you should remove EverydayLookup Toolbar from your PC.
This toolbar is a newcomer in the so-called Mindspark family of questionable and useless browser extensions that include WorldSport New Tab and ConvertBox Toolbar. You can install EverydayLookup Toolbar directly from its official website, everydaylookup.com. In this case, you are surely offered a choice to opt out of the browser changes, even though the checkboxes are ticked by default. So, if you fail to read the panel carefully, you will end up with Ask.com as your home page, new tab page, and default search engine in all of the most popular browsers.
Of course, this is not the only way for EverydayLookup Toolbar to appear in your browsers. Unfortunately, it is also distributed in free software bundles together with other malware threats, including browser hijackers, adware programs, and potentially unwanted programs. These bundles are usually available on suspicious shareware and other P2P websites. It is possible that you click on a misleading download button and that is how you end up installing a whole pack of infections. It is important to note that even if you download such a bundle, you still have a way not to install what you do not need or want. Look for those checkboxes that let you make this decision. Sometimes these are only revealed in the Custom installation option. No matter how EverydayLookup Toolbar got to your computer, you need to delete it and search for other possible threats before they start causing real damage.
