InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar is a browser extension that can be considered an adware application. It is designed to provide you with some particular function, although InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar also comes with additional features that should help its creators make easy money. If you care about your system security, you will have InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar removed immediately as this browser extension has loose security settings and in the long run it could be exploited by cyber criminals to distribute adware and even more dangerous system security threats. Although it is highly discouraging, sometimes even the most innocent-looking applications could prove to be dangerous.

We cannot call InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar a genuine computer infection because this toolbar comes from the Mindspark family, and just like many other applications in the group (DailyLocalGuide Toolbar, VerifiedVPN Toolbar, Video Scavenger Toolbar, etc.), InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar also has a homepage at free.internetspeedtracker.com. You can download the application there without any difficulties, and the website also offers some basic information on the application. For example, it says the following:

Free Internet Speed Test

With InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar, you can easily test your internet speed with a quick click. Find out how fast or slow your computer performs with speed test.net, run a computer internet speed test, a speed Internet tester and other diagnostic tools.

So it would seem that InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar is a useful application that can provide you with some function that would improve your web browsing experience. However, when you think about it, it becomes somewhat suspicious because you might as well make use of popular and certified websites that provide users with reliable Internet speed test. To tell you the truth, there is no need to use InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar for that because, even if it does provide you with reliable results, it still takes up your system resources, consequently making your browser sluggish and unresponsive.

What’s more, sometimes users don’t even know where InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar comes from and how they managed to get the application on their computers. This happens because InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar can also be distributed bundled with adware applications that are available for download from file sharing websites.

If that weren’t enough, if you install the full setup of InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar on your computer, your default browser settings will be modified as well. That is somewhat alarming, considering the fact that such applications often track your web browsing habits and then they make use of that information to generate customized commercial content.
