Our researchers have categorized AudioToAudio Toolbar as a bad toolbar, because it performs several malicious activities that will be discussed in greater detail throughout this article. But from the very outset we can advise you to remove this infection regardless of whether you find its functions useful. The toolbar is a product Mindspark, a company responsible for developing a lot of malicious applications similar to AudioToAudio Toolbar. We must warn you that this infection poses a very real threat to the security of your computer, so we recommend that you remove it using our manual removal guide provided at the bottom of this article.
As mentioned, AudioToAudio Toolbar has been created by Mindspark. The company has been very active recently as it has released similar toolbars, such as GamingAssassin Toolbar, MySocialShortcut Toolbar, Running Fanatic Toolbar, and many others. It is also worth mentioning that the company produces mobile apps and various desktop utilities that users should also remove. Our researchers are well aware of the products that this company develops, and there is not a single product worth keeping.
You can get your computer infected with AudioToAudio Toolbar by downloading it from Audiotoaudio.com or from the chrome web store. Even though the program is up for download from the seemingly reliable application store, we must inform you that unreliable applications do get through. In any case, when you install the application, it will change your default search provider and homepage to Myway.com which is powered by Google. It might seem well and good, however because the search engine has been customized it will oftentimes present you modified search results favoring some kind of website, which could be infected.
The toolbar itself features an Audio converter which might actually be useful if it worked. It also features a link to Facebook, which is very important to have, since many of us are unable to create our own bookmarks. Furthermore, it features a link to a music video-related website which did not work at the time of our testing. The toolbar does have a few dozen links to music-related websites that contain various advertisements, which are very unreliable. Actually there is no way of knowing which coupon, banner or pop-up is legitimate.
Our researchers recommend that you remove AudioToAudio Toolbar from your computer, because it features links to websites that have potentially dangerous third-party advertisements. The program automatically changes your browsers homepage and search engine without your consent. The search engine is unreliable, because it alters search results to better suite someone’s agenda. Therefore, we are of the opinion that you should remove AudioToAudio Toolbar from your PC ASAP.
