If you are looking for a toolbar that would help you get the latest news on movie releases, do skip Movies Toolbar. Although this browser extension is not a malicious computer threat, users often claim that it hijacks their browsers and displays websites of commercial content. Naturally, since this extension is not a computer malware application, it cannot be a browser hijacker, but there are certain security risks related to this add-on, that you cannot ignore. Hence, it is for the best to remove Movies Toolbar from your PC to protect it from possible malicious infections.

One of the main reasons why Movies Toolbar cannot be classified as computer malware is the fact that it does not enter your system surreptitiously. Users often install the plugin themselves from the official website or along with other freeware applications. If you download a free software program from an unreliable website (if it is NOT an official distributor website), you need to be very attentive during the installation process, because free programs often have some additional plugins and add-ons attached, most of which you certainly do not need. If you are not attentive enough, things like Movies Toolbar get into your PC, and your default home page and search engine get modified.

Although the search engine that Movies Toolbar comes with is not dangerous, it is full of commercial links that you are urged to click in order for the people behind this scheme to general financial revenue. What is more, Movies Toolbar could be easily used to distributed malware, if it is exploited by cyber criminals to display ads with links to dangerous websites. You have to consider all these potential risks and then remove Movies Toolbar from your system, because it is the best way to prevent all the related malware infections and potentially unwanted programs from entering your PC. To perform a manual toolbar removal, follow the instructions below.
