Severity scale:  
  (36/100)

CursorMania or Cursor Mania is the toolbar, program that belongs to the line of the products that all 'grant' their users with MyWebSearch toolbar. Though it seems to be legitimate and dedicated for those who have been looking for new mouse cursor images, it has also been widely discussed on the Internet as virus – many users have wondered if CursorMania.com is safe and free of spyware, adware, malware or other cyber threats. Well, we have found some facts about this app that could let us attribute it to browser hijackers' category but, overall, we should say that this plugin is safe. 
Average internet users do not like some activity of Cursor Mania and think that it is a virus or malware. We checked Cursormania and our conclusion is, that it is a safe plugin.

HOW DID I GET CURSOR MANIA?

The way how you can install it is really simple – in most of the cases users download it manually from the cursormania.com of other affiliated websites. However, sometimes it is installed together with other programs without any visible permission asked. Note that during its install process users are usually asked if they want to make MyWebSearch as their homepage. We don't recommend agreeing with that because this special search engine is said to slow down the computer and redirect users to various commercial websites.

I strictly recommend not to hold back until you earn enough amount of money to order all you need! You can just take the loans or student loan and feel yourself fine
