FreeManualsIndex Toolbar has an official website free.freemanualsindex.com/index.jhtml where it can be downloaded from; however, it seems that it might also find other ways to get onto the computer. For example, it might enter the system in a software bundle. No matter how this piece of software has gotten onto your computer, you should consider carefully whether you really need it inside your system because it is definitely not the most trustworthy application. In the opinion of researchers at pcthreat.com, it should be categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Specialists are willing to tell you everything they have found about FreeManualsIndex Toolbar in this article, so read it carefully. If you decide that keeping a potentially unwanted application is a bad idea, you could delete it quite easily. The important information about the removal of FreeManualsIndex Toolbar can also be found further in this article.
As it is said on the official website of FreeManualsIndex Toolbar, it should help users find product manuals on the web. Of course, it is not associated with these products and companies that have developed them by any means. All it does is sets a website with a toolbar containing buttons leading to third-party websites with manuals. Of course, users can reach those websites without the help of FreeManualsIndex Toolbar too. They only need to type the URL of a certain website in the address bar of their browsers. In other words, FreeManualsIndex Toolbar is definitely not as beneficial as it claims to be. Nobody says that users should get rid of this program just because of that. Instead, one of the main reasons it should be eliminated is the fact that it sets a website on all browsers that is capable of displaying untrustworthy ads. The biggest possibility is that these advertisements will appear on the search results page shown to users after entering a search query in the MyWay search box (it is available on the page set). What is more, both this search engine and the browser plugin itself can collect information about users (e.g. login times, search queries, clicks, IP address, type of OS, date and time, and a bunch of other details). This collected information is, unfortunately, sent to third parties too, so, in the worst case scenario, this recorded data might end up in the hands of bad people. Is it worth the risk? We believe no, so we suggest getting rid of this piece of software right now.
FreeManualsIndex Toolbar is usually put into the category of potentially unwanted programs also because users find it installed on their computers even though they do not download this application from its official website. According to researchers, it does not mean that it illegally enters computers. Instead, this shows that it travels bundled with free applications in software bundles and enters computers together with them. Users usually do not notice that extra programs are going to be installed on their systems because they do not pay much attention to the information they find provided for them in the setup wizard. You should be more careful with free programs, especially when you download them from file-sharing and similar websites because freeware is often installed on the computer together with other applications alongside. If you do not consider yourself an attentive person, you should go to install a security application. It will protect the system for you if you enable it after its installation and keep it this way.
FreeManualsIndex Toolbar creates an uninstall entry in Control Panel; however, it will only disappear from Internet Explorer if you remove it through there. In case of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, you will have to remove browser extensions from them in order not to see the irritating toolbar anymore. These extensions can be eliminated through the Add-ons manager, or you can go to delete _j6Members_@www.freemanualsindex.com (folder) located in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[PROFILE]\extensions and ofikjbmmddegbnopggcggbhaolmbhifg (folder) located in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\[PROFILE]\Extensions, %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\[PROFILE]\Local Extension Settings, and %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\[PROFILE]\Sync Extension Settings to make the toolbar gone. If you have never erased a browser extension before, use our step-by-step manual removal guide. It will show you how to do that. Keep in mind that these instructions will only help you to erase FreeManualsIndex Toolbar from all browsers only, which means that you will have to take care of other infections hiding on your PC separately. An automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter would definitely help you to take care of them all.
