If you have installed TotalRecipeSearch toolbar onto your Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers, there is a great chance that your home page has been set to the search engine home.tb.ask.com and your search provider has been changed to Ask Web Search. Even though neither the toolbar nor the search applications are highly malicious, many Windows users find these tools unreliable and worthless. Some even claim that the toolbar is a malicious browser hijacker which has been developed by Mindspark Interactive Network. Our spyware researchers have discovered that the plugin is authentic and only the search tools could be categorized as potentially unwanted programs (PUP). Do you want to delete the undesirable search tools and remove TotalRecipeSearch toolbar? We can help you along this process.
Zwinky Toolbar, Utility Chest Toolbar, DictionaryBoss Toolbar, HeadlineAlley Toolbar, and tens of other Mindspark browser plugins are equally as disconcerting as TotalRecipeSearch toolbar. Even though the plugin seems to offer useful links to Recipe Search, Daily Recipe, New Recipes, Healthy Means, Desserts and Menu Planner, it also activates Ask search tools. Needless to say, you have an option to reject the undesirable web search modifications during the installation of the toolbar. Did you not see the boxes representing the agreement to change the home page and the search provider? If you have not, you probably have joined the ranks of Windows users who pay little or no attention to the installation process. As research shows, most Windows users keep pressing the ‘Install’ button until the process is complete, and since the installation of Ask search tools is automated, you may be surprised by the changes. Can you trust the suspicious search tool? We do not recommend that you trust it because it provided ad-supported search results. Do you know what this means? It means that every time you type in a keyword and hit Search you are firstly presented with links to sites which have nothing to do with your query.
