GetFlightInfo Toolbar

GetFlightInfo Toolbar will be added at the top of your browsers if you download it from, or it manages to enter your system without your consent. Users who add this toolbar consciously usually do that because they believe that they will be able to get information about flights. Even though GetFlightInfo Toolbar advertises itself as a useful piece of software, it states on its official website that it “provides information from third-party sources and does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or timeliness of the results.” It simply means that it might provide users with unreliable info about flights. Is it worth keeping software that will probably work in a useless way? We believe not, especially when there is a slight possibility that GetFlightInfo Toolbar will cause harm to the system too. Other paragraphs will provide you more info about GetFlightInfo Toolbar itself and its deletion.

GetFlightInfo Toolbar is considered to be a toolbar hijacker. In fact, the majority of products developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. fall into this category. The reason is simple – they change search engines and add suspicious toolbars. GetFlightInfo Toolbar is no exception too. It will add a toolbar and set as your default search provider. The toolbar itself seems to be really beneficial because it enables users to get flight directions, flight status, and even check the weather forecast. Unfortunately, it might still be dangerous to click on the toolbar icons because redirections to unreliable web pages might be initiated. It is not advisable to click on ads which are placed on the start page of too because the publisher of GetFlightInfo Toolbar does not review these ads and might present users with those that are associated with untrustworthy web pages. The information available in the Privacy Policy also reveals that GetFlightInfo Toolbar can collect personal (name, address, email address, and telephone number) and anonymous information (number of page views, link clicks, and login times). It can do that automatically and uses cookies. Third-parties associated with this software might collect information about you too.

If you are still not sure whether you have really encountered a toolbar developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc., you should go to Program Files and try to find the following executables: CrExtPfk.exe, fkmedint.exe, fkskplay.exe, AppIntegrator64.exe, and fkhighin.exe. They all belong to this software and usually occupy 2.43 MB on disk in total, so if you see them, there is no doubt that you have encountered the product that is a member of the Mindspark family. These files are not the only ones that reveal that the toolbar is installed. It has been also observed that GetFlightInfo is also unique in a sense that it creates a number of CLSID keys in the registry. These keys identify a COM class object. In addition, it might add several services and BHOs (browser helper objects). As can be seen, this piece of software makes a number of changes after it enters the system.

As GetFlightInfo Toolbar is so similar to other browser plugins (e.g. TotalRecipeSearch Toolbar, MyFunCards Toolbar, and FilmFanatic Toolbar), it is spread exactly like these toolbars. It has been observed that it often comes bundled even though it can be easily downloaded from its official website. Users can download GetFlightInfo Toolbar together with a free program (e.g. WinRAR) promoted on an unreliable third-party web page. Users often find those web pages when they try to find where they can download a particular free program from.

We hope it is already clear that GetFlightInfo Toolbar is not a piece of software that should be kept installed. You can eliminate the toolbar from Internet Explorer by erasing it via Control Panel. In order to delete it from other browsers, including Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, you have to erase extensions from them. You can leave this job for SpyHunter too. It will do that in a minute for you. As is a legitimate search engine, it will not be removed by antimalware scanners, which means that you will have to do that yourself. Have you already removed the browser plugin manually? If so, do not forget that it is still advisable to scan the system with a reliable scanner in order to erase search plugins and other files that GetFlightInfo Toolbar might leave.
