Test iNet Speed Toolbar. What is is designed for and how does it work?
This potentially unwanted application claims to be an advantageous tool that provides an accurate connection speed test, tips to boost speed and also allows to listen to radio stations. This program is compatible with Windows® 7, Windows® 8, Windows® Vista, and Windows® XP operating systems. Although it may sound that this toolbar is a useful tool, you should not rely on it.Test iNet Speed Toolbar is a free program, but obviously, it has other income sources. These sources are third-party companies, which aim to promote web traffic to their websites. This is why Test iNet Speed Toolbar has replaced your default homepage with Ask Search engine and installed its extensions to your browser. Whenever you search for something via Ask Search engine, you will receive results injected with hyperlinks that may cause Test iNet Speed Toolbar redirects to third-party websites. Such sites frequently promote questionable software or software updates, but we recommend bypassing such offers. We cannot guarantee that these programs will be safe. In the worst scenario, you can end up with infectious computer threat on your system. To avoid such risks for your computer, we recommend to think about your system’s safety in advance.
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 Test iNet Speed 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.
