If you have installed OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar, you must have let in MyWay search tools as well because the toolbar always comes bundled with it. Both are created by Mindspark Interactive Network, and so it is not that surprising that they are bundled together. Nonetheless, that does not mean that it is okay to be forced into changing your homepage settings, and that is exactly what happens when you install the extension. Notably, you will not need to change the homepage if you install the extension onto Google Chrome, but you will be forced to accept a new homepage if you install it onto Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. Regardless which browser you install this add-on onto, the New Tab page will be modified. Whether or not these changes are welcome, we classify the suspicious extension as a potentially unwanted program (to shorten it, PUP). If you ignore the fact that it forces its way in, you have to note that this PUP is associated with a potentially unreliable search tool that might showcase sponsored content, and since you cannot replace the homepage on its own, we advise deleting OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar.

OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar is attractive to those users who want to be able to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations directly from their browsers. When you install the toolbar, you are introduced to tools created by ZOHO. The funny thing is that they do not work. Of course, it is possible that they are down due to issues that will be fixed in the future. Additionally, you are introduced to a tab called “PDF Converter,” and it opens freepdfconvert.com. Obviously, these tools and links are legitimate, and you might have use for them. Nonetheless, OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar was not created only to promote third-party tools, and there are other reasons why this potentially unwanted program was developed. First of all, it can use tracking cookies to record information that might be valuable to third parties. Is this information shared in return of money? We do not know that, but the Privacy Policy informs that advertising companies and ad networks are allowed to collect information and place advertisements. Obviously, if you do not want to encounter suspicious ads, you need to delete the PUP.

MyWay search is meant to be enhanced by Google, but that does not mean that it is affiliated with the company or the popular search tool itself. It simply means that the suspicious search.myway.com uses the Google Search engine to display search results that might be accompanied by sponsored links that the developer of MyWay is paid to expose you to. As you already know, this search tool is created by the same company as OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar, and so there is a great possibility that this potentially unwanted program was created only to expose you to the suspicious search tool. After all, the company is unlikely to make money from the toolbar, while it can make money by promoting sponsored content via the search engine, as well as by sharing information collected using data trackers (e.g., cookies). Do you still think that the toolbar is a harmless piece of software? If you do, make sure you install the most reliable and up-to-date anti-malware software to strengthen your virtual security.

If you have downloaded OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar from onlineworksuite.com/index.jhtml or the Chrome web store, it is unlikely that other infections are active on your PC. Unfortunately, it was found that this PUP might be spread via unreliable bundles, as well as via unpredictable pop-up installers, in which case, it is most likely to come packaged with other PUPs or dangerous malware. If that is the situation, you should use anti-malware software to clean your operating system automatically. Do not uninstall this software afterward because it can protect you from other infections in the future. If you want to remove OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar manually, we have good news for you because that is very easy to do. All you have to do is follow the instructions below. Once you get rid of the extension, your homepage should be restored as well.
