If you have downloaded the toolbar by your own choice from ourworld.com.ourtoolbar.com, which is a surprisingly frequent occurrence, regardless of its shadiness, you may not be sure you should delete OurWorld Toolbar. While its aim is to make money, it uses different, more indirect approach than a toolbar normally does. Usually, it is all about advertisements and redirecting, while in this particular extension, it is all about making you play their games, like Our World, which require paying quite soon, if you want to be able to progress in them. Plus, the toolbar seems to be quite an honest application when it asks for approval before changing your search engine and home page, and the boxes stating those changes are not even pre-checked.
However, the toolbar may travel as a drive-by download, too, in which case you probably want to remove OurWorld Toolbar without further delay. It does not matter how it got in your computer’s system, though, what is important is the fact that it raises a lot of privacy issues and contains third-party links that are not monitored for safety by its developers. Add in the slow browsing and the decision to get rid of OurWorld Toolbar seems pretty much the only logical conclusion, especially remembering such creations by Conduit as MIXI.DJ Toolbar and Widgi Toolbar.
Removing OurWorld Toolbar, fortunately, is a manageable task. In spite of that, it would still be a good idea to scan your system after a successful removal, because having the extension installed may have lead to catching a computer infection.
