If you have downloaded MyEasyLotto Toolbar, you probably have done this because you believe that this toolbar can help you check whether you have won something or not. Without a doubt, it is most likely that this tool will interest those who participate in lottery frequently; otherwise, it is a nuisance because it takes over the New Tab and, on some browsers, the homepage, and it does not offer beneficial services otherwise. Due to this, it is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). At the time of research, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome users could acquire the extension from myeasylotto.com or the Chrome web store; however, it was also found that the PUP could be spread in less transparent ways. The unanimous decision by our malware researchers is that it is best to delete MyEasyLotto Toolbar; however, you do not need to trust our opinion. Instead, you can read this report to learn more about the PUP, so that you could decide for yourself if you want to delete the toolbar.

Are you familiar with Mindspark Interactive Network Inc.? This is the name that stands behind MyEasyLotto Toolbar, as well as many other toolbars alike, including HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar and GifaPalooza Toolbar. A lot of information lies within the names of these applications. While the latter toolbar is all about creating gifs, and the HolidayPhotoEdit Toolbar should help you edit photos, the suspicious MyEasyLotto Toolbar has all to do with lotteries. So, how does it work? Once you install the toolbar, it is either introduced to you via the homepage or the New Tab. The interface of this toolbar is the same in both cases. At the top, you are shown a link to http://www.lotterynumbergenerator.net/, which is not a very helpful site, but Mindspark Interactive Network Inc. might earn money for promoting it. You also can find a button revealing the latest weather forecast depending on your location, which suggests that the toolbar can track your geographical location. At the bottom of the page, you can find a button called “Lottery Results.” It opens a pop-up window that allows you to check the winning numbers of various lotteries according to the specified country. If all of this seems wonderful to you, you might not understand why the removal of MyEasyLotto Toolbar is discussed at all. It has to do with the search service.

Do you think that the search service offered by MyEasyLotto Toolbar is useful? If you do, you might think that it is just as trustworthy as that provided by Google Search. Although search.myway.com is meant to be “powered by Google,” you should not think they are equal. The search tool created by Mindspark is likely to be used for the presentation of third-party links so that money could be earned for promotion. That being said, we cannot guarantee that the links shown via this strange MyWay search engine are all malicious. It is likely that at least some of them – if not all – are harmless, but that is difficult to predict considering that we know nothing about the third-parties that can record data and showcase their links via the search tool. There is no doubt that they can do that because the Privacy Policy representing Mindspark software informs us about that. So, should you remove MyEasyLotto Toolbar because it allows third parties to record information about you and promote their offers? You be the judge of that.

Internet Explorer users can delete MyEasyLotto Toolbar by uninstalling an application, and Firefox and Chrome users can get rid of it by removing extensions. These tasks are not that complicated if you have performed them in the past, but even if you are inexperienced, we are sure that you can successfully get rid of the PUP using the instructions shown below. If you cannot, write us a comment below explaining your problem and we will help. Or you can automatically remove MyEasyLotto Toolbar using an anti-malware tool. We strongly recommend this option to those who are facing other threats at the same time and those who need the protection that only anti-malware software can produce.
