Whenever you feel like adding a plug-in to your browser, please think twice whether you really need it. Perhaps you can achieve the same functionality just by accessing a particular page or adding a shortcut to your shortcut bar. Having toolbars like MyImageConverter Toolbar on your computer does not improve your browser’s functionality that much. If anything, it slows down your browser and exposes you to unreliable third-party content. It would be in your best interests to remove MyImageConverter Toolbar from your computer as this toolbar may bring more damage than do any good. If you have any further questions on the matter, do not hesitate to leave us a comment.
Unlike most of the other adware applications that do not have official homepages, MyImageConverter Toolbar comes with a perfectly functioning website. You can access it at myimageconverter.com, where you can also find out more about the application. The information on the website says that with this toolbar you can “convert images with a simple click.” It elaborates that the browser extension allows you to “convert between various image files, browse imagines, and edit images online.” It supports many image formats, so it should make your image management a lot easier. However, the question is whether you really need such a tool because some of its functions may not be what you need.
What’s more, sometimes MyImageConverter Toolbar may enter your system in software bundles with other unfamiliar applications. It happens quite often when users download freeware apps from file sharing websites. On top of that, you may need to go through every single installation step careful to avoid installing MyImageConverter Toolbar. When freeware apps come bundled, users are often informed about the additional programs by the third-party installer, but they simply fail to notice the information when they breeze through the setup wizard. Consequently, several undesirable programs end up being installed on their computers.
MyImageConverter Toolbar comes from a group of browser extensions and plug-ins developed by the MindSpark Inc. It is from the same family as EverydayLookup Toolbar, FindMeFreebies Toolbar, VideoConvert Toolbar, and many others. All browser extensions from this group have a specific function that makes them unique, but at the same time it is questionable whether the function they provide you with is useful enough to keep these applications. After all, some users think the likes of MyImageConverter Toolbar are malicious infections because supposedly they change the default browser settings.
Your browser settings might get changed because this toolbar comes bundled with the Ask Search engine. If you install the full version of the toolbar, it will affect your browser settings as well. However, MyImageConverter Toolbar is not a browser hijacker because you have a chance to decline to install it. At the same time, you can also restore your browser settings if you follow the instructions below this description.
Needless to say, it is strongly recommended that you remove MyImageConverter Toolbar from your PC as well because the chances are that sooner or later this browser extension will expose you to potentially corrupted commercial content. That could result in a malware infection or personal data theft, and that is something everyone wants to avoid. Finally, please consider getting a legitimate antispyware tool to avoid similar intruders in the future.
