Internet is a great place to be when you are bored and MindDabble is one of these sites that may allow you to put your brain to a good use (figuratively and literally). It is a mind games plugin that is compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers. When you install it on your computer, it manifests itself as a browser toolbar with shortcuts to the game website and a number of other popular web pages. It goes without saying that MindDabble is not a computer virus, but it may come bundled with additional freeware that could cause potential security risks. That is why users are advised to stay away from MindDabble and other related applications.

In a way, MindDabble plugin is very similar to Daily Bible Guide and MyFunCards Search plugins. They have the same setup wizard which allows one to assume that all of these applications have been created by the same developer. Although it is obvious that MindDabble does not intend to do any harm, users often mistake this application for a computer virus or a browser hijacker, because they believe that the application change their home page behind their backs.

The truth is that MindDabble is directly associated with My Web Search search engine and this home page is known to display customized search results and links to sponsored websites. However, MindDabble itself does not change your home page by force. It requires user intervention, and the installation wizard prompts you about the oncoming changes during the plugin setup. If you go through the installation automatically, it is of no surprise that your home page and default search engine get changed to My Web Search.

It is slightly annoying, because even though My Web Search does provide you with a search engine function, it is not a website you can trust 100%. Home.mywebsearch.com is known to display commercial advertisements and links to affiliated websites. What is more, in case the website gets hacked, you may also be redirected by force to corrupted websites that distribute malware. Due to such security threats, it is important that you remove MindDabble and the plugins related to it right now.
