FreePDFCombiner Toolbar

It seems that Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. is not going to stop – it has recently released new software FreePDFCombiner Toolbar. The application is advertised as a tool for merging multiple PDF documents. We suspect this is the reason users consciously install it on their computers. Of course, not all of them click the Download button consciously. Others find it installed on their PCs without their knowledge. No matter users install FreePDFCombiner Toolbar willingly or it is installed on their computers without their knowledge, it does not seem that users are very happy about the changes this toolbar applies to their browsers. Yes, it alters browsers’ settings once installed. The company does not try to hide this fact from users, but they rarely read the provided information and do not know anything about the changes that will be applied to their browsers. Luckily, it is not that difficult to get rid of FreePDFCombiner Toolbar, so if you do not like how it acts, it has been installed on your computer without your permission, or you have not found it very useful, you can delete it from the system without difficulty today.

FreePDFCombiner Toolbar is very similar to other Mindspark browser plugins. Once installed on the user’s computer, it changes the default homepage and New Tab page. As a consequence, users see the page it promotes every time they launch their web browsers. The page FreePDFCombiner Toolbar sets has an appearance of an ordinary search provider. At the top, you will find a toolbar with quick-access buttons opening tools for editing PDF documents. It also contains buttons that allow users to open popular websites like Facebook and Amazon with the click of a button. Last but not least, you will find a search box on it. It is powered by search.myway.com that redirects searches to the modified Google search engine. Because of this, you might be presented with the modified search results. They should not be malicious, but you might find yourself on a website that does not have a single piece of information you are searching for, so it might take longer to find whatever you are looking for on the web.

It should be emphasized that FreePDFCombiner Toolbar also automatically collects information about users. The only way to stop it is to remove it from the system. Researchers working at pcthreat.com have analyzed its Privacy Policy document to find out what details about users it records, and it has turned out that it mainly records the non-personally identifiable information consisting of details about hardware and software, IP address, search results clicked by the user, and websites opened. Of course, if you contact customer support and provide personal details like your name and telephone number, these details will be collected and stored on the company’s servers as well. FreePDFCombiner Toolbar may also receive some information about users from third parties. If you do not like how the browser plugin acts, you are free to delete it from your system today.

FreePDFCombiner Toolbar can be downloaded directly from http://www.freepdfcombiner.com/index.jhtml, but we are 100% sure that not all users download this piece of software from its official source. Specialists have also confirmed that this browser plugin can be distributed bundled. Additionally, it might be distributed via pop-up advertisements, they say. It is not very likely that an inexperienced computer user could protect his/her computer from all untrustworthy applications. Therefore, we recommend installing reliable security software on all computers connected to the Internet. It will considerably reduce the chances of discovering new untrustworthy software installed on the system.

You can get rid of FreePDFCombiner Toolbar without difficulty if you have not installed it consciously, or you have installed it yourself but do not like it for any reason. It can be removed from Internet Explorer using Control Panel; however, if FreePDFCombiner Toolbar has applied changes to your Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, you will have to open the add-ons manager to delete the browser extension representing the toolbar. You will find the manual removal guide prepared by our specialists below this article, but it does not mean that you necessarily have to delete FreePDFCombiner Toolbar in a manual way. Reliable antimalware scanners recognize potentially unwanted applications like this toolbar easily, so you can use an automated malware remover to get rid of it instead.
