CinematicFanatic Toolbar is yet another Mindspark browser plugin which should be removed from computers immediately. We call it a “Mindspark browser plugin” because it has been developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc, a company which has already developed hundreds of similar toolbars which do not differ much from each other the way they look and act, for example, Converters Now Toolbar, LiveRadioSweeper Toolbar, and OnlineFormFinder Toolbar. All these applications are presented to users as extremely beneficial software, but, in reality, they do not act very beneficially. In the case of CinematicFanatic Toolbar, although it claims that it will help users “find free movies from a variety of genres” and enable them “watch classics, popular favorites, award-winning movies on your PC”, it does not do anything except for setting a new page in the place of a user’s homepage. There are quick-access buttons opening movie-related websites located on it, but they can all be opened without the help of CinematicFanatic Toolbar – users simply need to enter an URL of a website in the address box of a default browser. Therefore, specialists do not consider this Mindspark toolbar very beneficial. If you have found it quite useless too or if there are other reasons you do not like it, get rid of this potentially unwanted application as soon as possible. Information you will find provided further in this article will make the removal process easier.

One of the main questions users asks us is “how did CinematicFanatic Toolbar enter my computer?” There are hundreds of users who cannot explain why they have CinematicFanatic Toolbar installed on their PCs and we know why it is so. Research carried out by specialists at 411-spyware.com has shown that this piece of software might enter computers without permission too even though it has an official website http://www.cinematicfanatic.com/index.jhtml with a working Download button. Two distribution methods are usually used to spread this program. First, it might be packed in software bundles together with third-party software and enter the system unnoticed. Second, specialists say that users might find ads promoting this potentially unwanted program on some kind of third-party website. If they click on this advertisement, CinematicFanatic Toolbar is automatically installed and then starts working on their computers. Users should be aware of the fact that potentially unwanted programs are not the only ones which are distributed using these two methods – other untrustworthy applications might sneak onto your computer illegally too one day. Luckily, there is a way to prevent this from happening – enable a reputable security application on your PC.

When CinematicFanatic Toolbar is successfully installed, it changes a homepage on a user’s default browser (this browser plugin is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, so changes will be visible on all these browsers). As mentioned in the first paragraph, this page consists of a bunch of quick-access buttons, a bar at the top (only Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome users will see it), and a search box. Needless to say, users’ preferred homepages will be gone and could only be set again if they remove CinematicFanatic Toolbar fully from their computers. Specialists do not recommend trusting the MyWay search tool blindly either because it might present them with the modified search results, they say. These modified search results will surely not improve your web searching experience – it will be even harder to find the information on the web. In addition, they might take users to untrustworthy pages. Theoretically, anything, even bad software might be found on them. Additionally, these websites might try to extract personal information about users. Actually, CinematicFanatic Toolbar is not innocent in this sense too – its Privacy Policy document tells users that it can also collect information about them and then share this gathered data with third parties, e.g. advertisers.

You should not find the CinematicFanatic Toolbar removal very complicated because you will only need to remove its extension from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome to disable it. It is even easier to eliminate it from Internet Explorer - CinematicFanatic Toolbar can be deleted from this browser like any other program, i.e. using Control Panel.
