It is not the first nor the last time do we research a toolbar, such as DownloadManagerTool Toolbar. Mindpark has been relentlessly churning out malicious toolbars for many years. This particular toolbar is not different from hundreds of others that we have analyzed, but it needs to be done, because not users are aware of what this infection is capable of. Like all Mindspark toolbars, this one also has a promotional website at Downloadmanagertool.com. But it is not the only place where your computer can become infected with this malware. We know that it is also distributed via malicious software bundles that are commonly found on unreliable freeware sharing websites, such as Soft32.com or BrotherSoft.com.
When a computer becomes infected with DownloadManagerTool Toolbar, it automatically changes the homepage and search provider to a heavily customized Ask.com search engine that contains numerous shortcuts to the most popular websites, such as Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia, Ebay, and so on. We do not recommend using the custom search engine, because it is unreliable. The toolbar itself contains bookmarks to various websites, such as Dailymotion, Vimeo, Vevo, Metacafe, and so on. It has a functional weather application, and a functional Internet Radio app. But we still recommend that you remove it, because it uses browser cookies to collect information about you and share it with third-party advertisers and other entities.
