Do you think that FunPopularGames Toolbar can help you find the most exciting games online?

The point is that FunPopularGames Toolbar is an adware application that can expose you to unreliable third-party content, and if it happens to be malware-related websites, then you could end up infected with severe computer security threats. Therefore, before any of that happens, you should remove FunPopularGames Toolbar for good. Scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual adware removal instructions.
We do not expect much from this application because we know exactly where it comes from. FunPopularGames Toolbar is from the MindSpark family of adware applications that function like browser extensions. That being said, FunPopularGames Toolbar is not more different from MyImageConverter Toolbar, EverydayLookup Toolbar, VideoConvert Toolbar, and many others. As you can clearly see from their names, these applications have been created with some specific function in mind. They should improve your web surfing experience allowing you to perform some functions a lot faster. The problem is that there is a catch to it, and as a rule, no service comes entirely for free.
Despite the fact that FunPopularGames Toolbar may redirect you to genuine online gaming sites, the application will also promote third-party commercial content because it needs to collect money for the development cost. There is nothing illegal about that but you may want to watch your back because some of the commercial content promoted by FunPopularGames Toolbar could prove to be potentially harmful. Users, who think that this browser toolbar is a malicious infection, would not be surprised by it. However, shall we take a look as to why some users think FunPopularGames Toolbar is a dangerous computer threat?
The thing is that this browser extension has several distribution methods. It can be easily downloaded from funpopulargames.com, which happens to be the main website of the program. Nevertheless, the far more common distribution of adware applications is software bundling. This means that several adware and potentially unwanted applications enter target system at the same time. It is very common that users do not notice how they install the likes of FunPopularGames Toolbar because they are too focused on some other application. As a result, they think that this adware program slithered into their computers surreptitiously, a.k.a. it infected them.
What is more, FunPopularGames Toolbar may also be mistaken for a browser hijacker because if you install the full version of the toolbar your homepage and default search engine will be changed to Ask.com. It is possible to decline this search engine if you go through the installation wizard carefully, but users quite often miss this chance as they do not read all the steps. As a result, their browser settings get modified, and they increase the risk of being exposed to the unreliable content.
There is no need to tolerate a program you did not intend to have. Remove FunPopularGames Toolbar following our instructions and then restore your browser settings manually. You should also scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool to locate all the other potential threats. Do everything you can to keep your system safe and secure.
