What do you do when you need to edit a text document, but you do not have a text editor at hand? You turn to the online text editors, and AllInOneDocs Toolbar seemingly can help you with that. However, computer security experts are not so sure you should rely on this browser extension because it may enter your computer accidentally, and it may also expose you to potentially undesirable content. When you deal with a program that entered your computer without your permission, it is obvious that you should remove it no questions asked. The same applies to AllInOneDocs Toolbar, as well.
Some users may think that AllInOneDocs Toolbar is something akin to a browser hijacker because upon installation the toolbar modifies your browser settings, too. However, the official stance of this application is that it does not change the default homepage settings unless you allow it to. Here you might argue that you never authorized any kind of browser settings modification, but we have to remember that the toolbar might also get installed on your computer with other freeware apps. So there is a good chance that you might have missed the message that offered you to add a new search engine to your browser.
What does it entail? It means that you must have installed several unfamiliar applications on your system at the same time. If you really did not know you were about to add AllInOneDocs Toolbar to your browser, then there is a very good chance that you installed more unfamiliar programs, too. This happens because such applications come bundled in a software package. You must have downloaded this package from some third-party website that hosts freeware. In fact, you probably wanted a completely different program, and you had no idea the third-party installer would bring this toolbar to your computer.
What’s more, it is sometimes hard to label AllInOneDocs Toolbar as a dangerous threat because it does not try to hide its presence. It even has an official website you can check out at allinonedocs.com. The official homepage says that the toolbar provides you with an online text editor that supports multiple file types (.doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, .xls, and so on), and runs on most popular versions of the Windows operating system. So, in a sense, it seems that the program can provide you with something useful, but if we take a closer look at it, we will see that the service it offers is not original.
Like most of the Mindspark toolbars, AllInOneDocs Toolbar employs a third-party website to “help” its users edit text documents. The extension uses the Zoho.com text editor, and even modifies your default homepage to hp.myway.com/allinonedocs to make it seem as though your browser was turned into an ultimate text editing tool. Needless to say, such intrusive behavior should not be tolerated, not to mention that it could also prove to be unsafe. Since the extension uses third-party websites to provide you with the necessary service, something might go wrong along the way, and the toolbar could end up getting exploited by cyber criminals.
The point is that such browser extensions are highly vulnerable to third-party exploitation. That might not be their objective, but in the worst case, they could easily be used for malware distribution by cyber criminals. If that happens, you could get infected with Trojans, ransomware applications, and other dangerous threats that could destroy your system and steal your money. All of that could begin with a single browser extension that should not have been on your computer in the first place. So before the situation falls out of hand, you will do yourself a favor if you delete AllInOneDocs Toolbar right away.
Please note that uninstalling the application via Control panel removes it only from the Internet Explorer browser. To delete it from other browsers, you will need to tweak their settings manually. If you do not want to do this on your own, please invest in a security tool that would terminate the extension for you automatically. At the same time, you could also run a full system scan to see what other programs have to be deleted from your PC. After all, a clean and safe computer seldom causes a headache!
