DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar is browser plugin targeting people listening to music and watching videos online. It does look like a beneficial application because it promises to help find online radio stations, access music videos, music news, and even lyrics, but, according to specialists at pcthreat.com, it still cannot be trusted fully despite all those promises because this application is a new product of the infamous company Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. that has already developed hundreds of similar browser plugins. Of course, the name of the company is not the reason to delete DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar from the computer. Specialists say that it would be best to eliminate this piece of software because it might act in an undesirable way. Researchers have even put this program into the category of potentially unwanted programs (PUP) because of the way it acts. Of course, it is clear that it is not extremely dangerous software, but it would still be smart not to keep a suspicious application installed when there are so many other reliable programs working similarly available on the market.
Once DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar is installed on the computer, it places a toolbar at the top of every browser. It contains buttons leading to external websites, including vevo.com, Pandora.com, iheart.com, musicmaze.fm, hypem.com, popkwiz.com, tunefind.com, and others. Many users find the ability to access web pages with the click of a button very useful, so many of them decide to keep it and thus do not do anything to make it gone. Of course, there is also a bunch of people who find the presence of a new homepage and the New Tab page set by DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar quite irritating. Users who download this application from its official website are informed in a small font about these changes; however, those who install this program accidentally do not know about that and find these changes quite surprising. Specialists suggest getting rid of the MyWay search engine that is set as homepage and the New Tab page not only to be able to set your preferred website, but also to avoid problems its presence might cause. Let’s talk about these problems. According to researchers at pcthreat.com, it might be quite dangerous to use the search box of the page set by DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar to search for the information because there is a risk of ending up on an untrustworthy website after clicking on a promotional link or advertisement placed on the search results page. Yes, it might provide users with the so-called sponsored search results.
Researchers say that the official website of DiscoverLiveRadio Toolbar is definitely not the only source it can be downloaded from. It has been found that it might also travel bundled in software bundles or end up on computers when users click on a pop-up advertisement promoting it. In most cases, these ads are shown by adware programs, but it is also possible to discover them on untrustworthy third-party websites. We know that it might be very hard sometimes to prevent an untrustworthy application from slithering onto the computer. Therefore, we suggest installing a security application to protect the computer 24/7.
