FreeShoppingTool Toolbar might change the user’s new tab page with myway.com. The problem is this search engine could show modified search results, which means they may include advertising from the software’s third-party partners. It is possible such content could come from unknown sources, and as a result, it might be unreliable. Naturally, if you do not like ads, such material could disturb your browsing as well. Under such circumstances, we would advise not to waste any time with FreeShoppingTool Toolbar and erase it before anything goes wrong. Users who wish to know more about the application should read the rest of the article first. However, if you came here only to learn how to remove this doubtful extension, you could slide below this text and follow our provided deletion instructions.
The application belongs to an untrustworthy company known as Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. and like many other tools created by it, the extension was classified as a potentially unwanted program. Often users receive such software without realizing it as they pay no attention during the installation process. As you see the suspicious extension might be bundled with other applications. In which case, it could be offered when choosing advanced or custom installation settings and added to the user’s browser automatically if he does not deselect it. Besides, FreeShoppingTool Toolbar could be spread with pop-up ads leading to the software’s official site called freeshoppingtool.com/index.jhtml. No doubt, if you want to avoid similar potentially unwanted programs or other threats in the future, you should be more cautious when choosing new tools.
So far, FreeShoppingTool Toolbar works on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. What it is supposed to do after being added to the browser is make it load myway.com when the user opens a new tab. In addition, the user may find a toolbar below the browser’s address bar that might contain various links to popular web pages. Clearly, all of these links can be bookmarked, so while the toolbar might look handy, it can be easily replaced by creating needed bookmarks. Coming back to the potentially unwanted program’s search engine, our researchers say it could show modified search results that might include unreliable third-party advertising. If you take a look at the search engine’s End User License Agreement document, you should find statements saying Mindspark products “may provide access to search results or other links to Third Party Partner websites or resources. Mindspark has no control over such sites and resources.” This means the content could come from many sources and the extension’s creators do not take any responsibility for it or can guarantee it would be safe to use.
Moreover, if you read more of FreeShoppingTool Toolbar’s End User License Agreement statements, you should learn the application is provided “as is,” which means its creators do not take any responsibility for the product itself. Next to such statements, we also found a line saying the developers cannot promise the tool will be “SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE, THAT THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE MS PRODUCTS WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE.” It does not mean anything bad will necessarily happen, but there is a possibility it could. Therefore, if you do not wish to risk your computer’s or privacy’s safety, we would recommend against using FreeShoppingTool Toolbar or searching the Internet with myway.com.
Users who decided to get rid of the potentially unwanted program can erase it in two ways. The first option is to delete FreeShoppingTool Toolbar manually from the affected browser. The task might not be challenging, but if you consider yourself to be inexperienced, you may want to follow the instructions provided below this text. The other option is to install a reliable antimalware tool that could detect and eliminate the potentially unwanted program for you. Just pick a tool you can trust and set it to scan the system; wait for the results to show up and click the given removal button.
