Formfetcherpro is advertised as a browser extension that allows you to get government forms quickly and free of charge. However, in spite of this, we have classified it as a potentially unwanted program because it can get onto your PC without your knowledge and replace your browser’s homepage address in an effort to make you use for conducting your daily searches. Therefore, we recommend that you remove it from your PC at your earliest convenience because this application performs unsanctioned actions. Also, its featured search engine can show promoted search results in its search results, and the links can be potentially misleading and even harmful to your computer. On top of that, the search engine might collect information about you to show customized search results with customized promotional links.
Our analysis has revealed that Formfetcherpro was created by a company known as Mindspark Interactive Network, a company that has been releasing similar useless browser extensions and toolbars for several years. Some this company’s most recent releases, we find AtoZManuals Toolbar, WorldOfNotes Toolbar, and EasyDirectionsFinder Toolbar. All of these browser extensions are considered potentially unwanted because they all do the same things.
You can get Formfetcherpro from Formfetcherpro.com if you really want to because it is this program’s primary distribution website. However, like all Mindspark Interactive’s extensions, it is also bundled with third-party software and put up for download on freeware distributing sites that make money off installing additional software. As a result, the installers can be quite deceiving in that they might not disclose that they have been set to install this extension by default.
If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, then Formfetcherpro will be installed on your browser. Once on your browser, it will replace its homepage address with its featured Search.myway.com search engine that was also created by Mindspark Interactive. This search engine uses Google to present you with search results. Unfortunately, its search results can feature promotional links that can potentially jeopardize your computer’s security as they can redirect you to questionable and outright malicious websites such as scam sites, phishing websites, and sites featuring malicious software. Therefore, using this search engine is risky.
Furthermore, we have found that Search.myway.com can collect some non-personally identifiable information about you and use it for searching the web. The collected information can include information such as your browser type and version, operating system type and version, approximate geographical location, IP address, Internet Service Provider (ISP) domain name, search history, search terms entered, and so on. All of this information is collected legally using browser cookies, web beacons, and other information collection technologies to customize the search results and provide you with relevant advertisements. However, since these ads ant promotional links can be misleading and malicious, you should not trust Search.myway.com and, by extension, Formfetcherpro.
Therefore, we recommend that you take action now before anything bad happens. While Formfetcherpro is not necessarily malicious, there is no telling what it can promote because Mindspark Interactive is interested in making money not providing its clients with a reliable service.
