ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar

ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar is an application and extension that was created by Mindspark Interactive Network. The toolbar is represented as a Windows application for Internet Explorer users and as an extension for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome users. It appears that it is compatible with these three web browsers only. It is officially represented at, but our research team has found that it is offered via the Chrome web store too. Also, third-party installers could introduce users to it as well. In the case of the latter, other unreliable programs could come bundled with the toolbar, which we recognize as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Therefore, the first thing we recommend doing is scanning the system. Employ a trusted malware scanner, and you will learn right away if you need to remove ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar along with anything else. Obviously, if critical threats are found, you should not waste any time. Once you know which threats you need to delete from your operating system, use this and other guides available on this website to learn more.

The suspicious ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar was created by the same company that created such well-known PUPs as PresidentialBuzz Toolbar, TaxCenterNow Toolbar, or OnTargetYoga Toolbar. Needless to say, they all look the same but promote different content. When you install the toolbar we are discussing right now, is set as the homepage and/or New Tab page on the browser. The home page of this strange engine promotes easy-access links to,,,,,, and similar shopping-related websites. These links are represented via the “toolbar” at the top. In the center of the page, you have additional links to,,,, and popular social-networking sites. Well, why would you delete ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar if it introduces you to legitimate sites from your homepage? This is what many users of the PUP might struggle with. Just keep in mind that even if something looks legitimate and beneficial, does not mean that it actually is. Our research team has reviewed the toolbar, and the conclusion is that removing it might be important for your own virtual security, as well as the security of your operating system.

Another thing that might make you postpone the removal of ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar is the search tool, which, at first sight, appears to be completely legitimate. The “enhanced by Google” tag is shown next to the search field, which might make you think that the search results can be trusted. That is not the case. When you enter any keyword, you are redirected to, and although some of the results are taken from, others are injected by MySearch itself, and, unfortunately, the sponsored links could be unreliable. The search tool does not try to hide the fact that “personalized ads” from “partners” are delivered, but since you do not know who these partners are, trusting the search tool is risky. Also, according to the Privacy Policy that supports ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar, certain information about you and your activity could be shared with unknown parties. Needless to say, you have to judge carefully if trusting this toolbar is the right move. Researchers in our team agree that it is best to delete it without any hesitation. Note that you can always add desired links to your bookmarks bar, and you do not need separate toolbars that cannot offer anything beneficial.

If you do not have much or any experience with the removal of undesirable applications or extensions, you might be intimidated by the elimination of ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar. We have good news for you: Getting rid of this potentially unwanted program is not that difficult. According to our research team, all you need to do is uninstall it and erase the extension, which you can learn how to do by following the guides below. Since the homepage might remain corrupted after the removal of the toolbar on IE and Firefox browsers, we have also added steps that show how to change the homepage URL. Of course, manual removal is not the best option if other threats exist on your operating system. Have you found this to be the case? If you have, we advise installing reliable anti-malware software. Once installed, it will automatically delete ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar and other threats, and it will reinforce overall protection to make sure that PUPs and malware cannot invade your operating system.
