MyFileConvert Toolbar is a potentially unwanted program. This application works like a browser extension, and it is compatible with Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. Quite often, users do not understand why this application is on their computer, and if you are one of them, you have opened the right page. In this description, we will show you how to get rid of MyFileConvert Toolbar for good. When you are done with that, you should also consider investing in a legitimate computer security tool that would protect your system from other threats. Do not leave everything to luck, because you might run out of it one day!
Although the application has an official website that you can open via myfileconvert.com, it is very unlikely that the affected users would have downloaded MyFileConvert Toolbar from the homepage. After all, you would not be complaining about this program if you had installed it willingly. The problem is that, just like most of the other applications from the Mindspark family, this extension comes bundled with freeware, or it gets installed automatically via random pop-ups. In that sense, MyFileConvert Toolbar follows in the footsteps of CreateDocsOnline Toolbar, QuickWeatherTracker Toolbar, SuperCouponPro Toolbar, and many others. In fact, this toolbar family has been growing relentlessly for a few years now.
Perhaps our main problem about it is that users who complain about the application usually download it from third-party websites. What we mean is that if you were to download the program directly, you probably would not have any problem removing it, right? But when it comes bundled with freeware, it takes a while to understand how this application got installed on your computer, and users are often too confused to realize that it is not that complicated to get rid of MyFileConvert Toolbar.
In some cases, it might seem that this application functions as a browser hijacker because it modifies your homepage settings. However, upon the installation, you actually agree to change your browser’s settings. These conditions are given in the installation wizard and even on the official homepage. Hence, if you fail to read all the steps on the installation wizard, you do not notice the line which says that MyFileConvert Toolbar will change your homepage and the new tab settings on your default browser.
Technically, such modifications are more of an annoying nuisance, but we have to remember that by meddling with your settings, this application exposes you to third-party content. It even carries short cuts to Gmail, Amazon, Instagram, Facebook, and so on. Of course, the main purpose of this application is supposedly to help you convert your documents to the .doc and .pdf file formats. But the question is whether you really need an application that comes with so many side effects.
You see, MyFileConvert Toolbar will be able to track your online activity, and it will display commercial content, some of which could be embedded with links to malware-related websites. This happens because this application does not have a say in what kind of content is embedded in its advertising space. Therefore, to save yourself the potential trouble of dealing with malicious infections, you should remove MyFileConvert Toolbar immediately.
