AudioToAudio Toolbar has been classified as a bad toolbar due to its malicious nature, and because of that, we recommend that you remove this infection. The toolbar has been developed by Mindspark – a software developer known for creating malicious applications, so we are of the opinion that AudioToAudio Toolbar is malicious as well, and our research has proved that. Of course we will discuss the program’s origins and functions in greater detail throughout this article. So if your computer is infected with this application, please continue reading.
As mentioned, the application is a product of Mindspark, which has recently rolled out infections similar to the AudioToAudio Toolbar. GamingAssassin Toolbar and Running Fanatic Toolbar are just a few notable examples. Of course Mindspark does not limit itself to producing malicious browser extensions. It is also known to develop Smartphone apps and various hardy useful desktop utilities, and due to the unreliability of these applications, we also recommend that you remove them.
AudioToAudio Toolbar has its own website at Audiotoaudio.com from which it can be downloaded for the most popular web browsers that include: Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. Surprisingly, the infection can also be downloaded from the chrome web store, but it still does not mean that the application is by any means legitimate. Sometimes, unreliable applications do get through the store’s filtration system, and thus, appear legitimate.
Allegedly, AudioToAudio Toolbar is an audio converter that can convert AIFF, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, and WMA formats. However, we cannot confirm if the converter actually works or not, because our research has been focused on its malicious functions. In any case, if you get your computer infected with this application, it will automatically hijack your browser’s homepage and search provider. They will be changed to Myway.com, which will provide modified search results. Modified search results might pose a threat to your system’s security, since they might contain links to infected websites.
The toolbar itself only contains shortcuts to music-related websites that feature commercial advertisements. Therefore, we advise users to remove this application, because the ads promoted on those websites might contain malware links. In addition to music-related websites, the toolbar has a music-video related link, which refused to open at the time of our testing.
We hope that the information provided in this article was useful, and you are now ready to remove AudioToAudio Toolbar from your computer, keep in mind that the application hijacks your browser settings, and changes the homepage and search engine to an unreliable one. It also features links to unreliable music-related websites that contain third-party ads which are likely to contain links to malware downloads. Therefore, we recommend that you remove AudioToAudio Toolbar form your computer.
