Do not install FreePDFCombiner Toolbar on your computer if you do not want to find changes applied to your web browsers no matter how nice its description sounds. The application really makes it easy to access PDF editor/converter, but few users know that it also alters the default homepage and New Tab page once installed, so it is not surprising why so many users decide to remove FreePDFCombiner Toolbar from their computers. You can undo the changes applied to your browsers only by deleting this potentially unwanted application fully, so if you do not like what you see when you open your web browser, remove it today without hesitation. Potentially unwanted applications are not real threats, so they can be erased easily. For example, you will only need to open Control Panel to delete FreePDFCombiner Toolbar from Internet Explorer. Continue reading to find out how to remove it from other affected web browsers.

We do not blame users who decide to delete FreePDFCombiner Toolbar. We would do this too because this piece of software has been categorized as a potentially unwanted application, which clearly shows that there is something wrong with it, and, on top of that, it changes such settings as the default homepage and New Tab page on web browsers. To be more specific, if you install FreePDFCombiner Toolbar on your PC, you will find a new page that looks like an ordinary search tool set on your web browser. You could perform web searches via the search box installed on that page – it is powered by search.myway.com. Additionally, since the page set contains a ton of quick-access buttons, you could access third-party services and some popular websites with the single mouse click. We have to admit that this sounds useful, but we cannot confirm that keeping FreePDFCombiner Toolbar installed is a very smart idea. In fact, we do not even think that it is a good idea to perform searches via the search box the page set contains too because it is powered by the search tool that might return modified search results.  If you have not found this a huge drawback and plan to keep FreePDFCombiner Toolbar installed on your computer, there is one more thing you need to know about this potentially unwanted application – it automatically collects information about users. These details it records include IP address, browser type, search queries, websites opened, and more. Generally speaking, it collects information both about users’ computers and their online activities.

One of the reasons FreePDFCombiner Toolbar has been classified as a potentially unwanted application is the fact that it is distributed in software bundles and might be installed on users’ PCs without their permission. Of course, users contribute to its entrance themselves. Bundling is not the only distribution method that the developer of FreePDFCombiner Toolbar employs to promote its creation. It has been observed that this potentially unwanted application might also be advertised on P2P or similar websites. As a consequence, you could have installed it with the single click. Since untrustworthy applications can be very sneaky, and it is often a challenge to recognize them, we highly recommend that you install a security application. It is one of the simplest security measures you can take to ensure the computer’s maximum protection against bad software.

Do not even consider keeping FreePDFCombiner Toolbar installed if it has been installed on your PC without your knowledge. We are sure that you will not miss anything if you make it gone because it is not as useful as it claims to be – all online PDF editing tools can be accessed without its help. To help you delete it easier and quicker, we have prepared the manual removal guide, but it does not mean that we push you into erasing this potentially unwanted application manually. If you want to, you are free to delete it quicker by scanning your system with an antimalware scanner. Your scanner is outdated and does not perform its main function to fight against malware if it has approved the installation of FreePDFCombiner Toolbar, so get rid of it right away and install a more trustworthy antimalware tool for the FreePDFCombiner Toolbar removal.
