Quite a few users have a lot of email accounts on different servers, and InboxAce Toolbar is a browser plugin that allows you to keep all of your email accounts at your fingertips. The toolbar supports Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, hotmail, AOL Mail and Facebook, and when the plugin is installed, all the shortcuts to your email accounts right in front of you. However, security experts consider this plugin a potentially unwanted program due to a variety of possible security risks. Therefore, you are highly advised to remove InboxAce Toolbar from your computer and protect your system from harm.

At first glance, there is nothing wrong with InboxAce Toolbar. In fact, it is not a computer infection. Just like that official website at InboxAce.com claims, the program is a browser extension that provides you immediate access to your email accounts. InboxAce Toolbar is compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Internet explorer, and based on its setup wizard, the plugin is related to MindDabble Toolbar and MyFunCards Search browser extensions. The problem is though, that sometimes InboxAce Toolbar can be downloaded from third party websites unwittingly.

When you download freeware from third party websites you have to keep in mind that these free software applications are often bundled with even more additional programs that you do not even need. Also, some users complain that InboxAce Toolbar is a browser hijacker, because it modifies their default home pages and search engines. The plugin does change your home page to My Web Search or home.tb.ask.com, but this modification requires user intervention, so unless you allow for your home page to be changed, InboxAce Toolbar will not perform any changes.

The risky part of this extension is the fact that it could be exploited by malicious third party to distribute malware. Therefore, if your default home page and search engine get changed, you could get redirected to unfamiliar third party websites, or there could be a string of commercial ads displayed, related to corrupted web pages. Do not click on ads and outgoing links to websites you are not familiar with, and remove InboxAce Toolbar from your PC, to prevent any possible damage.
