This toolbar is a new member of the so-called Mindspark family of bad toolbars.

Not acting is not an option if you take the safety of your computer seriously. Restoring the previous security level of your operating system starts with deleting FindMeFreebies Toolbar and scanning your PC for other infections.
FindMeFreebies Toolbar is simply one of hundreds of worthless toolbars whose only aim is to make easy money for their publisher Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. DownSpeedTest Toolbar and PackageTracer Toolbar are only two of the recent creations that function very similarly to this bad toolbar. FindMeFreebies Toolbar offers quick-links to third-party services in connection with free samples, products, event tickets, and the like.
It also provides a search engine powered by ask.com. While this search engine is a reliable one, when used through this toolbar, the search results might get altered. Be prepared for some sponsored links inserted among the normal links on the search results pages. This toolbar may also record your search queries and together with the information it may collect, customized advertisements and links may be sent to your computer screen through the third-party services related to this toolbar. As its EULA clearly states, the company does not take any responsibilities regarding the third-party content and advertising you may be introduced to while using these services. Therefore, you should be very careful where you click if this toolbar and search engine is installed on your computer. The best solution is to remove FindMeFreebies Toolbar as soon as you can.
This toolbar can be downloaded from its official website at findmefreebies.com.
