Now, we cannot say that this browser extension is a malicious infection because it does not infect your system surreptitiously. In other words, users tend to install the application on their computers willingly, although they might not be aware of that. This happens because InternetSpeedRadar Toolbar gets distributed in software bundles that come from websites that host freeware. When you download freeware apps you probably do not realize you download more than one application onto your computer. It would be possible to avoid that if you were to check every step in the installation wizard carefully. Unfortunately, users tend to breeze through the setup because they want to use a particular program as soon as possible.
What’s more, InternetSpeedRadar Toolbar also has an official homepage at internetspeedradar.com. The same could be said about all the other programs from the Mindspark Toolbar family. Browser extensions from this group look like they come from different sources and like they have different functions, but in reality, this InternetSpeedRadar Toolbar application is no different from MyScrapNook Toolbar, Zwinky Toolbar, Video Scavenger Toolbar, and so on. They all exhibit the same behavior, and users often feel tricked when they see what these programs do to their browsers.
If you did not intend to have this Mindspark toolbar installed on your computer, you will be surprised to see that it changes your default homepage and adds various shortcuts to your browser, too.

While it might seem that with these modifications you can enjoy a far more custom web browsing, you also have to remember that it opens opportunities for various exploitations and other undesirable activity from third parties.
