MapsGalaxy toolbar is a program, which is officially dedicated for improving user's browsing on the Internet. It includes various features, such as maps, traffic conditions, directions and similar, and can easily be installed on IE and Mozilla Firefox. We must say that many PC users find it really effective. However, no matter that it's is free of viruses, it has also been reported for annoying redirections to mywebsearch.com and unwanted changes made in computer's settings. Mostly, this toolbar alters user's homepage to home.mywebsearch.com. Of course, there should be no surprise why this toolbar redirects users to this domain - MapsGalaxy toolbar is owned by the same company as mywebsearch, which is called Mindspark. As we can expect, all products that belong to this company may be interested in making users visit this domain and increase their traffic in this way.

WHERE CAN I GET MapsGalaxy toolbar FROM?

However, it seems that not only its official website promotes it – this program may also enter your computer in a bundle with other software.

Additionally, you must be aware that it's created for monetization purposes, so it may cause browser's redirections to home.mywebsearch.com and similar websites. To sum up, we don't recommend trusting it if you haven't installed Maps Galaxy Toolbar on your computer.

Just browsing on the Internet. My PC seems like there is no annoying viruses that could alter the program entering my computer, or any redirection threat to the disclosure provided by my spy team. To sum it up, the FBI gives zero access to the latest threats. But its a hard fight. Some visitors come from space, search a lot, and are very smart.
