The dangerous toolbar

February 21, 2013 1:54am CST
When you download stuff in the internet. Especially in software downloading sites, be careful not to download the toolbar. That toolbar will hijack your browser. I don't remember what I did but I accidentally download this toolbar and it started to hijack my browser. I have to uninstall it and completely reset the internet setting to make it go away. This toolbar it's a malware, once it hijack your browser it will have access to your internet info and money.

Actually when you download a software that you know it's safe, you have to carefully read the agreements in the installation process of the software. Sometimes they will ask to install a toolbar before they can proceed. I should have unchecked the box for the automatic download of the toolbar that comes with the installation. If you don't it will automatically download itself then your computer will be infected.

Yeah, my web browsers were also hijacked by this toolbar. Luckily, I have successfully removed it.
