If you do not want to lose the precious URL you have set as your homepage and your New Tab URL on all your browsers, you should not install MyWayNotes Toolbar on your computer. This new Mindspark Interactive Network Inc. product, just like older browser plugins developed by this company, change browsers’ settings once installed. It will act the same no matter if you download and install it from its official website (http://www.mywaynotes.com/index.jhtml), or you find it at the Chrome Web Store and install it with the single click. If you do not want to find your web browsers’ settings altered, it would be best that you find another tool for taking notes and creating tasks lists despite the fact that MyWayNotes Toolbar looks beneficial. Have you already installed it on your PC but do not like it? That is not a big problem – you can remove this piece of software from your computer at any time. Even though MyWayNotes Toolbar has been classified by specialists as a potentially unwanted application, you do not need to be an expert to remove it manually – it is not a malicious application.

Do not be surprised that your browsers’ (MyWayNotes Toolbar works on IE, Chrome, and Mozilla) settings have been altered because MyWayNotes Toolbar installs a tool that is used for changing browsers’ settings on users’ computers. The default homepage and the New Tab URL on browsers are replaced by the page that does not differ much from an ordinary search provider. To be more specific, users can perform web searches straight from their homepages because the page set has a search box. It is powered by search.myway.com that is based on the modified Google search engine. Speaking about notes and task lists, MyWayNotes Toolbar enables users to access online services with the click of a button. Unfortunately, it does not do anything else, so if you are looking for a useful application with a variety of features, you should choose another program over this Mindspark toolbar. If MyWayNotes Toolbar stays, the page that has been set on your web browser will stay too. Also, you might be presented with the so-called modified search results, which might include sponsored links, if you use the promoted search tool. They are not malicious, but you should still be very cautious with them because some modified search results might take you to untrustworthy websites. There is one more thing you need to know about MyWayNotes Toolbar.  Its Privacy Policy analysis has clearly shown that this browser plugin automatically collects information about users and then might share it with service providers, advertisers, and business partners. This is, of course, not something extremely dangerous, but we cannot guarantee that all third parties Mindspark Interactive Network Inc. works with are reliable.

The official website of MyWayNotes Toolbar presents it as extremely beneficial software, so we are sure there are people who install this potentially unwanted program directly from its official source. The official Google Chrome Store is another source it can be installed from, which clearly shows that MyWayNotes Toolbar is not a malicious application. This piece of software is far from being serious malware, but specialists tend to classify it as a potentially unwanted application because it might travel in software bundles and successfully get onto users’ systems without their direct permission. You will not find a single fully reliable program spread in software bundles, so it would be best that you delete all applications that manage to enter your system without your consent right away. A reliable antimalware tool installed on the system would do that for you. Maybe it is time to install it?

If you know nothing about untrustworthy software removal but you still want to erase it manually, you should use our manual removal guide. It will help you to delete MyWayNotes Toolbar from all three browsers: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome.
