InboxNow Toolbar provides easy access links to Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, and AOL Mail services. Additionally, it also promotes links to Facebook, Weather, and Ask Search. If you type in keywords, you will be routed to search.tb.ask.com search results that might be mixed in with sponsored links and ads. It is up to you to decide whether you interact with these advertisements, but we do not recommend this. Even though Ask Search is a legitimate, popular search engine, it does present links to third-party websites, which means that security risks do exist. You need to keep this in mind if you install InboxNow Toolbar bundled with Ask Search as well. Our research team has found that many users install additional software by accident, which often leads them to thinking that they need to remove a browser hijacker. Even though we do recommend deleting InboxNow Toolbar, we do not identify it as a hijacker.

Have you downloaded InboxNow Toolbar from downloadinboxnow.com? If you have not, you probably have downloaded it bundled along with other programs. Unfortunately, it is far more likely that you will find InboxNow Toolbar bundled with malicious or at least unreliable programs than trustworthy and authentic ones. ConvertAnyFile Toolbar, CoolPopularGames Toolbar, and other toolbars created by Mindspark could be carried by malicious installers as well. Frequently, unreliable installers bundle several different Mindspark programs together. This can be extremely annoying because these toolbars take up space and introduce annoying pop-ups promoting services. On top of that, if you do not remove InboxNow Toolbar – or any of its clones – multiple tracking cookies will be installed. These cookies can spy on you, and leak information about your activity, which is why we advise removing them as well.

The reason why some computer users mistake InboxNow Toolbar for a browser hijacker is careless software installation. If you do not pay attention, the undesirable search tools will be installed automatically. On the other hand, if you are careful, you will find the option to refuse undesirable additions. Luckily, it is quite easy to remove InboxNow Toolbar-related search tools from your browsers even if you have installed them by accident. Of course, some users find home.tb.ask.com to be a useful search provider. If this is the case, and you have considered all security risks associated with this search provider, you might decide to delete InboxNow Toolbar, but ignore the search modifications.

Removing Ask Search is very simple, as all you need to do is replace it with the preferred search tool. We show how to do this in the guide below. We also show how to delete InboxNow Toolbar. Note that you do not actually need to remove this toolbar directly from Internet Explorer. What you need to do is uninstall this program from your operating system. The removal process is truly simple, and we are sure that you will succeed in no time if you follow our tips and tricks.
