Do you install software cautiously or do you install the first program that offers you desirable services? If you do not do your research, EasyFileConvert Toolbar might seem like a great application (for Internet Explorer users) or extension (for Chrome and Firefox users). Although it is not classified as a malicious infection, and you might run it risk-free, our research team warns that it is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) whose services are not up to par. This toolbar is meant to help covert files for free, and it keeps that promise. Unfortunately, it also forces you to modify your New Tab and homepage settings, which is why it is considered unreliable. MyWay is the search tool that the toolbar employs, and it does not have a good reputation. Luckily, deleting EasyFileConvert Toolbar and MyWay search tool is not a complicated task. If you want to, you can jump to the removal guide below, but we advise reading this report first.

Since EasyFileConvert Toolbar is meant to convert files for you, it is not surprising at all that it introduces you to tools that enable converting all kinds of files. The strange thing is that the toolbar promotes other Mindspark Interactive Network (the creator of the toolbar) services, such as app.easydocmerge.com or allin1convert.com. In most cases, Mindspark toolbars promote third-party services. A few of the most recent toolbars from the family include ListingsPortal Toolbar and TestOnlineSpeed Toolbar. The toolbar – which, by the way, is represented via a New Tab page – also introduces you to links to facebook.com, youtube.com, gmail.com, groupon.com, and amazon.com. The search dialog box at the top represents the same tool that is represented via the search box in the middle. Although it is suggested that MyWay is “enhanced by Google,” it is not associated with this company, and it is most likely that it will showcase Google search results along with unreliable sponsored links. If you want to search the web reliably and efficiently, we suggest removing search.myway.com and setting a more reliable tool.

You can download EasyFileConvert Toolbar from free.easyfileconvert.com/index.jhtml, but is this how you acquired the toolbar? It is possible that you installed it using a third-party installer that carried other potentially unwanted programs and, possibly, malware bundled along with it. Even if you think you can account for every program packaged along with the PUP, you should install a trusted malware scanner to do a quick examination of your operating system. Malware creators know that they would not stand a chance of infiltrating malware if it weren’t for system vulnerabilities and smart disguises. If malware exists, the scanner will warn you about it in no time. If you are looking for a trustworthy and up-to-date malware scanner that is also free, click the Download link below. We suggest eliminating every single threat detected by the tool. Of course, we advise removing EasyFileConvert Toolbar as well. If you have reviewed the privacy policies of this toolbar, and you are sure that it is authentic, at least get rid of the suspicious MyWay search tool because it definitely is not reliable.

As you can see, you can remove EasyFileConvert Toolbar from your browsers – or PC if you have installed it using Internet Explorer – manually. Is it difficult? It certainly is not, but if you are having issues, feel free to add questions to the comments section. We will answer them shortly. Just remember that if you delete the toolbar, you also need to modify search settings. After you get rid of this undesirable software, make sure you eliminate the remaining threats that the scanner has helped you identify. Since these threats might be much more dangerous and complex, we suggest using anti-malware software for automatic removal. If this is the route you take, allow the tool to delete the PUP along with the suspicious search tool as well. Once your operating system is completely clean, review its protection. Maybe you need an upgrade? If your operating system is not guarded reliably, much more dangerous threats could attack it before you know it. We suggest taking action before it is too late.
