Audio To Audio Toolbar overview:
Audio To Audio Toolbar (you can also find it as AudioToAudio Toolbar) is a controversial program, which can surprisingly show up in any web browser, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and another one. In most of the cases, this program looks like a typical toolbar, which offers improving people’s browsing experience. However, you should be very careful with it because it has been noticed that this program promotes third-party links via its search engine (Ask Search).
MS Products may provide access to search results or other links to Third Party Partner websites or resources. […]
You hereby acknowledge and agree that by using an MS Product you may be exposed to Content that may be offensive, indecent or objectionable in your community. […]
MS Products are exposed to various security issues, and should be regarded as unsecure. By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and accept that the MS Products and any information you download or offer to share by means of an MS Product, may be exposed to unauthorized access, interception, corruption, damage or misuse, and should be regarded as insecure. You accept all responsibility for such security risks and any damage resulting therefrom.
Please, be careful with Audio To Audio Toolbar because you can never know what websites it promotes. While some of the websites are safe, some can be filled with questionable or even unsafe content, and that is why security experts recommend NOT to browse through such sites. Finally, this program may simply start collecting information about your browsing habits. Such information includes people’s search terms, mostly visited websites, data that is entered when visiting each of sites, PC’s IP address, its location and similar information. This is what the developer of this program states about data collection:
[…] we may share information with the businesses with which we partner to offer you those products, services, promotions, contests and/or sweepstakes. When you elect to engage in a particular merchant’s offer or program, you authorize us to provide your email address and other information to that merchant.
How can Audio To Audio Toolbar enter my computer?
Audio To Audio Toolbar can be downloaded from the Internet just like any other toolbar. Its download link can be found on its official website, also on CNET, Brothersoft, Softonic and other legitimate download websites. However, we have already warned you about its suspicious activities that should make you think twice before installing it. Besides, it has been revealed that it can also be installed on your machine in a bundle with freeware and shareware.
The MS Products may integrate, be integrated into, bundled, or be provided in connection with third-party services, feeds, and/or content.
To avoid installing this app, you should spend more time on freeware’s installation and carefully monitor this process. For that, we recommend choosing Custom or Advanced installation. If Audio To Audio Toolbar manages to enter the system, it initiates several changes in system settings and starts interrupting into people’s browsing. We highly recommend avoiding such programs and removing them from the system. To learn how to remove it, continue reading on page 2.
Recently, the developer of this program contacted us asking us to remove this post from 2-spyware.com website. We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of Audio To Audio Toolbar toolbar can detect it and help users to remove it from the system. As it is mentioned under each of download buttons, we ARE affiliated with these anti-malware programs, and while some of them are free, others can remove a virus only after purchasing them. These mentions fully fulfill each of the requirements of FTC.
Nevertheless, we have recently decided to make a revision of this and other posts that are related to this developer. We claim that all of them are described properly.
