What is Premier Download Manager Toolbar?
Premier Download Manager Toolbar is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that is usually downloaded from the official website thinking that it’s a very useful tool. It is presented as an app that is capable of helping people manage their downloads. While we can’t guarantee that this program is useless in that, you should know that it may also initiate unwanted activities on your PC as well. This has already made security experts label this program as a ‘potentially unwanted program.’
This program may start causing annoying pop-up ads, redirects to unknown web pages, slow downs, and similar inconveniences. Some of these ads may be labeled as ‘Ads by Premier Download Manager’ or ‘brought to you by Premier Download Manager,’ while other ones may have no label. In most of the cases, they are displayed when seeking to make people visit unpopular third party websites. However, you should be very careful with these redirects because they may trick you into visiting suspicious websites that may be used for spreading questionable programs. Even the developer of this app warns that:
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.
In addition, you may also start noticing that each of your web browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) started running slower than previously. This may also be caused by Premier Download Manager Toolbar. Finally, you should also know that this program may be used for tracking your browsing on the Internet. If you want to keep your search queries, mostly visited websites, data that you enter on each of these sites and similar information private, our recommendation would be to remove Premier Download Manager Toolbar from your computer. It’s not hard if you follow a guide that is given in the Page2.

We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of Premier Download Manager 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.
