If you find CrazyForCraft Toolbar in your browsers and you are surprised to see it, there is a good chance that your computer has been infected with a bad toolbar. Although it is possible that you downloaded and installed this questionable browser extension yourself, and did that knowingly, we suspect that most people have the so-called bundled version. That version may hold some hidden dangers for your Windows operating system as it may contain other malware applications. How you can acquire such a bundle and what other risks this toolbar may introduce you to will be shared in detail shortly. At the end of this article, we will also reveal what you need to do to remove CrazyForCraft Toolbar from your computer.
This toolbar is practically a clone of all other bad toolbars coming from the so-called Mindspark family, including EverydayLookup Toolbar and WorldSport New Tab. CrazyForCraft Toolbar can be installed directly from its website, crazyforcrafts.com. But, unfortunately, this extension can also be found in freeware bundles, together with other malware applications that may include adware programs and browser hijackers, too. The presence of these infections is rather obvious since they can ruin your browsing experience, either by displaying annoying and potentially unreliable third-party advertisements, or by changing your browser settings without your consent. If you are an unlucky victim of such a bundle, deleting CrazyForCraft Toolbar will not save you from the exposure and vulnerability issues these other threats may hold for you. That is why you are better off running a malware scanner so that you can see the threat level on your PC and can act accordingly.
CrazyForCraft Toolbar offers a third-party search tool, Ask.com, and easy-access buttons that are linked to third-party websites. Once this extension is installed, it will set an altered Ask.com page as your home page and search engine in all three major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. This way you cannot even avoid the potential risks unless you use Opera or another alternative browsers. However, even that may not save you from the other malware infections that might be endangering your operating system right now.
The biggest problem with this toolbar and the other Mindspark “children” as well that they are all unreliable. CrazyForCraft Toolbar may collect information about you and modify search results to include targeted ads and links. Third-party links should never be trusted as there is no guarantee that you will end up on trustworthy websites by clicking on them. We hope that you see now that you are better off not keeping this questionable toolbar on your computer.
And here is how you can make this infection go away in a couple of minutes. The manual version should not be too difficult even for an inexperienced computer user. But, if you need some assistance, you can use our guide below. Apart from uninstalling this application via Control Panel, you also need to reset your browsers because of the leftover extensions and the Ask.com-related setting changes.
