MyTransitPlanner Toolbar is one of the newest browser plugins developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. At first sight, it really looks like a useful and reliable toolbar because it promises to enable users to find maps, schedules, and more. As can be seen, MyTransitPlanner Toolbar is primarily aimed at people who travel a lot. Have you installed MyTransitPlanner Toolbar too? If so, we are sure that you see the presence of MyTransitPlanner Toolbar on your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers every time you open them. Users who do not install this toolbar consciously often find this really annoying. Do not worry; we are sure we will help you to delete it from your system.
As has been mentioned, there are hundreds of others Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. products; however, you can be sure that you have really encountered MyTransitPlanner Toolbar if you can detect its directories with files in %PROGRAMFILES%, %LOCALAPPDATA%, and %USERPROFILE% (64-bit Windows OS) as well as %PROGRAMFILES% and %USERPROFILE% (32-bit Windows OS). You should find its folders if you go to %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\MyTransitPlanner and %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\extensions\*MyTransitPlanner* in both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows OS as well. Even though the toolbar itself looks rather simple, it creates several registry keys too, for example, HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\MyTransitPlanner, HKCR\MyTransitPlanner, and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\MyTransitPlanner. Last but not least, such files as http_MyTransitPlanner.dl.tb.ask.com_0.localstorage-journal and http_MyTransitPlanner.dl.tb.ask.com_0.localstorage will also be added to the Local Storage directory which can be found if you go to %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\. As you have probably understood, even though this browser plugin is not the most sophisticated software, it still applies many changes upon the installation.
As you already know, MyTransitPlanner Toolbar has an official website; however, hundreds of users complain that they have not downloaded the browser plugin themselves, but still see its presence on their browsers. Actually, this is really possible because this browser plugin tends to travel bundled with other applications in software bundles. We are sure that not all the programs MyTransitPlanner Toolbar travels with are really trustworthy, so it would be clever to check the condition of your system after you have detected MyTransitPlanner Toolbar on your computer. We understand that it is very irritating to find an unknown program on the system, so we suggest that you install a security tool on your computer and keep it enabled. You should also stop downloading programs from third-party web pages and torrents because users usually download software bundles from such web pages.
