If you are looking for a piece of software to take notes and create to-do lists more conveniently, you might be considering whether MyWayNotes Toolbar is a good choice. It is presented as a useful tool for writing quick notes and creating task lists, but we would not call it a 100% trustworthy piece of software because it has been categorized as a potentially unwanted application by some malware researchers, including our specialists working at pcthreat.com. MyWayNotes Toolbar can be downloaded directly from its official website http://www.mywaynotes.com/index.jhtml. Also, Google Chrome users can install it on their browsers with the single click from the Chrome Web Store.

A bunch of users do not know that MyWayNotes Toolbar changes browsers’ settings once installed even though it does not try to hide this fact from them. This browser plugin installs a tool that changes homepages and New Tab URLs on affected browsers.

The website it promotes might look like an ordinary search tool at first glance, but if you look closer at it, you will see that a search box is only one of the items it contains. It also has a toolbar with such quick-access buttons as Add New Note and Add New List at the top. Also, it contains some buttons that open popular websites. While some of its features are really useful, we cannot confirm that it is a perfect program. According to researchers, there is a possibility that users might be presented with some modified search results if they decide to use the search tool promoted by MyWayNotes Toolbar to perform web searches. This potentially unwanted application will automatically gather information about you as long as you keep it active on your system as well.

You could have installed it on your computer if you clicked the Download button on the pop-up advertisement promoting it as well. Such ads are often shown to users when they open file-sharing and similar websites.
