SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar might provide links to recipe web pages that some users may find useful, but we do not believe having a toolbar with some links is worth keeping an unreliable application that could cause trouble on the browser. As you see, this extension falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). Our specialists tested it and noticed the software might encourage the user to search the Internet with a search tool that, besides matching results, could display annoying and possibly dangerous advertisements. Under such circumstances, we advise against SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar’s usage and if you think removing it would be a good idea too, you should take a look at the manual deletion instructions located at the end of this page. Of course, reading our full article and learning other details about this PUP should be useful too as it might help you stay away from such threats the next time.
To start with, our specialists report SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar can be downloaded from chrome.google.com/webstore, and those who use other browsers could receive it from the software’s homepage (simpleholidayrecipes.com). However, we do not think these are the only channels through which one could obtain the PUP. It was developed by a doubtful organization called Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. We consider it to be unreliable because we have already researched a lot of similar extensions developed by it, for example, OnTargetYoga Extension, BabyNameReady Toolbar, AtoZManuals Toolbar, and so on. What we noticed is some of them were also spread via untrustworthy file-sharing web pages, suspicious advertisements, and so on. Therefore, we would recommend being more attentive when launching installers obtained from questionable sources. It is always best to pick advanced installation settings. Not only it allows to learn more vital details, but in some cases, also deselect unwanted bundled suggestions.
After SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar is installed, users should notice some changes to their browsers. To be more accurate they might have additional toolbars full of links to other web pages. What’s more, the PUP could replace your start page or search engine with a specific search tool called search.myway.com. It might not look anyhow unusual, but with time the user may start seeing additional advertising content injected into the search results. Our specialists say there might be not knowing where it may come from and so some of it could be possibly dangerous. We cannot be one hundred percent sure about this, but there is a possibility the application could display unreliable advertising content, and if you do not want to risk seeing it while browsing, you should erase SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar with no hesitation. Instead of its search engine, you could use google.com, search.yahoo.com, or any other reputable search tool. Obviously, the links on the toolbar can be added to your bookmarks list and reaching the sites would be just the same as from the PUP’s toolbar.
Users who do not want to keep SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar on their browsers could eliminate it either manually or with automatic features. If you pick the first option, you should follow the instructions located at the end of this text. Otherwise, we would recommend installing a reliable security tool and scanning your system with it.
