DownloadManagerTool Toolbar

DownloadManagerTool Toolbar falls into the category of bad toolbars, because research has shown that it is unsafe and modifies the browser’s settings without the user’s knowledge or permission. So we are of the opinion that it would be in the best interest of the user to remove this infection in order to maintain good system security. In this article we will focus on the origins of the infection, functionality, potential risks, and how you can remove it in its entirety.

If you install DownloadManagerTool Toolbar accidentally or purposefully or that matter, you will notice that your homepage and search provider have been changed. Of course you can opt out from changing them during the installation, but many examples have shown that users rarely read through the installation process. The search engine that is favored by this particular infection is a modified search engine. Mind you, it is an unreliable search engine that can subject users to third-party content, since the developers of the application have likely made business deals with various advertisers.

The toolbar promotes several websites including, College Humor, Funny or die and some more popular websites, such as Facebook and YouTube. Furthermore, it has a working weather application which can actually be useful, but it does not mean that this function makes this infection legitimate. Moreover, it has a semi-functional Internet Radio program, which we found to be annoying since not all radio stations were working. At any event, we recommend users to remove DownloadManagerTool Toolbar, because it utilizes browser cookies to keep track of what you are searching for on the web. It can also collect information, such as your IP address, and thus your approximate geographical location, and other non-personally identifiable information. This information is collected to allegedly enhance your browsing experience, but the information is actually sent to third-party advertisers for market analysis.

DownloadManagerTool Toolbar has been developed by a company, called Mindspark which is responsible for releasing bad toolbars, such as EasyMailLogin Toolbar, WebmailWorld Toolbar, GamingAssassin Toolbar, and many others. It must be noted that DownloadManagerTool Toolbar is distributed via its promotional website at and malware bundles. Malware bundles in particular are very important to discus, because in addition to this malicious toolbar, you will get some other malicious application. These kinds of bundles are usually found on various websites that distribute pirated material and torrent websites. So keep that in mind the next time you go on a hunt for free software.

To sup um this article, it must be said that DownloadManagerTool Toolbar should be removed, because it can change your homepage for an unreliable one. It will collect information about you and share it with various third-parties that will try to monetize it by customizing the search results of the search engine, which will be sanctioned by the developers at Mindspark.
