FlightSearch Toolbar

FlightSearch Toolbar is a browser plugin that is aimed at those users who often travel by plane because it says that it allows users to check the status of the flight and access a time zone converter. On top of that, it even promises to give users directions where to go after they arrive at a particular place. FlightSearch Toolbar really seems to be a beneficial application but we do not think that it can be trusted because it is published by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. which has already released hundreds of suspicious toolbars which we described on our website some time ago. The main reason why it would be better to get rid of FlightSearch Toolbar is that this toolbar might redirect you to untrustworthy web pages. In fact, even those buttons placed on this browser plugin might redirect to unreliable web pages, so you have to be very careful with FlightSearch Toolbar. As has already been mentioned, we think that you should get rid of this toolbar completely because it might still cause harm to your system even if you are going to ignore its presence.

If FlightSearch Toolbar enters your system, you will not only notice a suspicious toolbar added to your browsers, but you will also notice that your homepage and search engine have been changed to ask.com. No, FlightSearch Toolbar is definitely not a browser hijacker, so we believe that you have agreed with all those changes yourself. Ask.com is not a dangerous search provider itself, but there is still a huge possibility that it will incorporate some sponsored links and ads among search results in order to make you click on them. Keep in mind that this might be really dangerous because you might end up on corrupted websites. As has been mentioned, you might end up on such websites after clicking on any of those buttons on FlightSearch Toolbar too. Finally, specialists at pcthreat.com want to tell you that FlightSearch Toolbar might record details about you too. It means that there is a possibility that it will violate your privacy. It is up to you what to do with this toolbar but we think that it is not worth keeping unreliable programs on board.

This Mindspark product might have entered your system together with other programs. It is very likely that it has been attached to freeware and shareware and you have agreed with its installation unknowingly. Of course, there is a possibility that it has entered your system together with untrustworthy programs too, so we suggest scanning the system with a diagnostic tool to find out if there are no other malicious applications on board. If you find them, delete them all immediately.

FlightSearch Toolbar itself can be removed from the system by erasing extensions (if you use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) or by simply erasing it via Control Panel (if you use Internet Explorer). Unfortunately, ask.com search engine will not disappear and you will have to remove it yourself. If you do not have time for this, scan your system with SpyHunter and it will fix everything for you. If you have decided to erase FlightSearch Toolbar manually, use our manual removal instructions. They will definitely help you to get rid of this browser plugin fully. Keep in mind that they will not help you to get rid of additional programs that might have entered your system together with this toolbar.
