Zango toolbar is a browser extension developed by Zango that is a software company which has been closed in April 2009. Zango toolbar is installed on your browser and it provides a shortcut access to various content, including sports, erotic videos, online games, comedy, screensavers and so on. Since the company was closed years ago, if you have Zango toolbar on your computer, it is probably because the installation file was bundled with some freeware you have downloaded from a third party website. This browser extension is considered to be a potentially unwanted application, so you should remove Zango toolbar from your computer to avoid various security risks.

This toolbar and other Zango products have often exhibited undesirable behavior. For example, most of the Zango software was configured to run automatically on start up, thus behaving more like computer malware rather than a legitimate program that asks for user's permission before doing so. Also, Zango toolbar can spam you with pop-up advertisements. They are annoying as it is, but if you click on any of these commercial ads, you may be redirected to a third party website, where a malware infection would be waiting for you.

Not to mention that Zango is often accused of installing adware. It means that Zango toolbar comes with other freeware, and most of the bundled software it comes with cannot be closed. In a sense Zango toolbar is not a computer virus, but it causes a lot of security risks to the user. Therefore, you should remove this browser extension from your computer for your own safety.
