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 shoppingdealslive.com, 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, hp.myway.com/shoppingdealslive/ttab02chr/index.html 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 bedbathandbeyond.com, hobbylobby.com, booking.com, coupons.com, joinhoney.com, shopzilla.com, 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 macys.com, target.com, walmart.com, amazon.com, 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.
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.
