StudyHQ Toolbar

Whether you are informed that StudyHQ Toolbar is powered by MyWay or, the developer of this suspicious program is Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. This application is supposed to make learning much easier and more convenient, but you have to be very careful about how you interact with it. Although this toolbar offer links to sites that should help you with your learning experience, ultimately, it showcases links to third-party sites, which can be dangerous. If you are not familiar with the sites this toolbar promotes, do not visit them. Even though we do consider this to be a motive to remove StudyHQ Toolbar, there are other reasons to delete it from your browsers.

If you have downloaded StudyHQ Toolbar from, it is very unlikely that you will encounter third-party programs. However, if you download this toolbar using a third-party installer, you might find it attached to UnzipApp Toolbar, DownloadManagerTool Toolbar, and other Mindspark applications. In the worst case scenario, you will download it bundled with malicious programs that you will have to remove as soon as possible. We strongly recommend deleting the software installed along with StudyHQ Toolbar, even if it is other Mindspark add-ons. If you activate other toolbars, you will lose browser space, and this might disturb you when surfing the web. Luckily, harmless add-ons are easy to remove.

The way StudyHQ Toolbar is represented depends on the browser you install it on. For example, if you download it on Internet Explorer, you will face this toolbar as soon as you launch your browser. Chrome users, on the other hand, will have to open a new tab to see it. What is more, StudyHQ Toolbar sort of works like a browser hijacker on Chrome, which is why Chrome users are more likely to delete this add-on. When installing this toolbar on IE or Firefox, you will be asked if you want to change your homepage, new tab, and search provider to, but you will not be forced to do that. When installing StudyHQ Toolbar onto Chrome, the New Tab will be set as your Home page, and it will represent a search tool supposedly powered by Google. If you enter keywords, you will be routed to a completely unfamiliar search page, Needless to say, this sort of activity calls for removal.

Even though has a disclaimer suggesting that StudyHQ Toolbar comes bundled with the StudyHQ Chrome New Tab, you are not warned about the suspicious search tool. The search tool represented via Firefox and Internet Explorer is suspicious as well because it shows sponsored ads, and it is possible that these advertisements are injected by the creator of the toolbar or parties associated with it. If you add all of these suspicious things together, you might start thinking that having StudyHQ Toolbar removed is a smart idea.

Authentic security software should be installed on all operating systems anyway, which is why you should not postpone its installation for any longer.
