If you have recently installed a toolbar by the name of WebmailWorld Toolbar, then you should reconsider your decision, because this toolbar is regarded as an infection that you should remove. The program’s usability is arguable, because it only provides bookmarks of email addresses that the user can make himself. We are not saying that you should remove the application simply because it has bookmarks to email addresses. We argue that this application should be dealt with, because upon infection it changes the homepage and search provider to its own without the user’s knowledge or consent.

If you get your computer infected with WebmailWorld Toolbar, it will forcefully change your homepage and search provider to a modified version of Ask.com. The modified search engine might show unreliable search results as some websites might be favored by the toolbar. Indeed, the search engine might display links to infected websites which could infect your computer with far more dangerous malicious applications. Your computer might be infected with keyloggers, spyware, ransomware, and so on. Therefore, we advise you to remove this infection from your computer as soon as possible.

WebmailWorld Toolbar has been developed by Mindspark, a company that specializes in creating malicious toolbars, unreliable desktop utilities, and mobile apps. Audiotoaudio, GamingAssassin Toolbar, and MySocialShortcut are just a few examples of malicious toolbars that are very similar to WebmailWorld Toolbar. The infection has its own promotional website at Webmailworld.com, from which the application can be downloaded. Nevertheless, the infection is also known to be distributed via software bundles.

Software bundles are a commonly used vehicle for distributing malicious applications, such as bad toolbars, adware, browser hijackers, and so on. So there is no surprise that WebmailWorld Toolbaris disseminated using this method. But you can avoid installing malware when installing software bundles. Simply opt for custom/advanced installation settings and remove undesirable programs form the installation process.

All in all, it is clear that this application will not enhance your browsing experience in any since it only serves a toolbar that features bookmarks. However, because it hijacks the homepage and search provider by changing it with a heavily modified version of Ask.com, which shows unreliable search results, it deserves to be deleted. Therefore we recommend getting a malware scanner such as SpyHunter to completely remove any infections your computer might have accumulated.
