EntertainmentNewsNow Toolbar is advertised as a tool for users who want to “Stay on top of the latest entertainment news!” However, if you imagine the toolbar will show you entertainment news once you open your browser, you might be disappointed as it is not how the application works. The extension provides a toolbar with links to various websites that can present celebrity news, scandals, and so on. Thus, to reach the wanted news, you would have to visit the toolbar’s suggested websites. Needless to say, you could do the same without installing the add-on in question. There is one other thing that the application might do after entering a system, and some users may not like it. If you want to find out what we are talking about as well as more details about this extension, we invite you to read our full article. On the other hand, if you are looking for deletion instructions that would show how to remove EntertainmentNewsNow Toolbar manually, you could slide below this report and check our provided steps.
To start with, it is worth mentioning that EntertainmentNewsNow Toolbar was classified as a potentially unwanted program or a PUP in short. This does not come as a surprise to us as the application belongs to the Mindspark’s family of toolbars. Meaning, it is very similar to lots of other applications developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. that got classified as potentially unwanted programs. There are a few reasons why the tool was placed in this category. To begin with, it is possible that the extension might be spread not only through its homepage (entertainmentnewsnow.com/index.jhtml) and Chrome Web Store Page, but also via bundled software installers and pop-up advertisements. Installers bundled with this potentially unwanted program or pop-ups promoting it could be encountered on unreliable-file sharing web pages. Thus, for users who want to keep away from such software, we highly recommend avoiding websites that spear pirated programs, unknown freeware tools, and so on.
We already explained at the beginning that EntertainmentNewsNow Toolbar adds a toolbar below a browser’s address bar that contains various links related to news and entertainment. Also, the potentially unwanted program might replace your homepage or new tab page with a website called search.myway.com. These changes might be made to browsers the tool is compatible with: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. The site you might see after opening your browser or creating a new tab is a search engine that is used in many Mindspark toolbars. What you should know about it is that it might leave the task of collecting results to a modified Google search engine. Our specialists say that modified results could be different from the ones you would receive while using the same keywords and the original google.com search engine. The difference could be in displayed ads as the modified search engine’s results could be injected with advertisements from the EntertainmentNewsNow Toolbar’s third-party partners.
All in all, EntertainmentNewsNow Toolbar is not a malicious application, but it might have annoying qualities that some users might find undesirable. If you are one of them, we recommend erasing this potentially unwanted program. As said earlier, you can bookmark the links you like and enter the toolbar’s promoted websites without it. To delete the extension manually, you should either uninstall it via Control Panel or remove it from your browser’s extensions menu. The instructions available below can guide you through these processes. If the task still seems too challenging or you want to check your whole system, you should employ a reliable antimalware tool.
