Users download and install a Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. product CreateDocsOnline Toolbar on their computers because it promises to act beneficially. Actually, the majority of applications developed by this company are advertised as useful tools. In this case, CreateDocsOnline Toolbar is promoted as a piece of software that enables users to “create and edit documents online.” In other words, it claims that it is a perfect alternative to MS Office programs. To find out whether it really acts this way, specialists working at 411-spyware.com have decided to carry out research. Surprisingly, it has shown that CreateDocsOnline Toolbar works quite beneficially. It sets a page which contains buttons opening free Zoho tools for creating, editing, and saving documents in .pptx, .pdf, .txt, .odt, and other formats online. Although it is quite a useful piece of software, specialists tend to classify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Let’s find out why it is so.
CreateDocsOnline Toolbar works quite well, we have to admit, but it still falls into the category of potentially unwanted programs. First of all, the page it sets replaces users’ homepages and New Tab URLs on their browsers, which means that they no longer see their preferred pages. The page CreateDocsOnline Toolbar sets looks like a search provider. It contains a search box (search.myway.com) and quick-access buttons allowing users to create new documents online and even check email with the click of a button. Users who do not install this potentially unwanted program willingly on their PCs usually find those changes undesirable. Those users who do not read program descriptions before installing new software on their computers have no idea why a new page has replaced their homepages and New Tab pages too. Luckily, changes can be undone by deleting CreateDocsOnline Toolbar. Of course, it is not the only reason this should be done. It has been found that users might be provided with the modified search results if they use the search box located on the page set by this program. These search results are potentially dangerous because they are capable of redirecting users to untrustworthy third-party pages. You can promise us not to use this search tool, but we all know that users need a search provider to perform web searches, so it would be best to replace the page belonging to CreateDocsOnline Toolbar with a reputable search provider like Google.
Most likely, you have downloaded CreateDocsOnline Toolbar from its official website www.createdocsonline.com/index.jhtml, but, if not, it must be true that it has found an alternative way to show up on your system. In most cases, potentially unwanted programs are spread in bundles together with freeware. These bundles can be downloaded from file-sharing and other untrustworthy pages. Second, pop-up advertisements might promote them too. These ads can be found on websites belonging to third parties, or they might be generated by adware working on the computer without the user’s knowledge. Do not worry; there is a way to prevent undesirable software from entering the system again. All you need to do is to install security software, such as SpyHunter, on your computer.
CreateDocsOnline Toolbar is not a dangerous computer infection, so its removal should be quick. If you use only Internet Explorer, you could delete it through Control Panel. It should not be hard for you to do that because you delete other undesirable applications from your PC the same. In case you use Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, you will need to remove extensions added by CreateDocsOnline Toolbar from these web browsers. Check our instructions if you have never done that before.
