What is DailyImageBoard Toolbar?
DailyImageBoard Toolbar is yet another misleading browser plug-in that seeks to promote Ask Search engine. Many people have already installed this app from its official website believing that it helps to pin, edit and share images, find creative craft ideas, recipes, technology info and so on. However, a research has shown that the majority of the users have eliminated it a few days after its installation. There is no doubt that there is a reason for that.
According to security experts, this tool usually spreads bundled with popular free software, so be very careful when downloading various download managers, PDF creators or media players. Even though DailyImageBoard Toolbar is not a virus, it can hijack all the most popular web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer), change their DNS settings, set search.tb.ask.com as a default search provider, and inject home.tb.search.com as a default homepage. Once it manages to cause these changes, it takes over your web browsing sessions and is may try to increase the rank of affiliate websites by displaying altered search results.

By the way, DailyImageBoard Toolbar is also capable of accumulating your web browsing history and other relevant information revealing your web browsing habits. Therefore, think twice before installing and using this application on your PC. If you prefer using one of the popular search engines and don’t want to receive altered search results, remove DailyImageBoard Toolbar from Windows system. For that, you can use the guide (Page2) that has been submitted by our security experts.
How can DailyImageBoard Toolbar infiltrate Chrome, IE, and Firefox?
DailyImageBoard Toolbar is a potentially unwanted program that relies on freewares no matter that it has its official website and can be downloaded right there. It’s not dangerous and can barely affect your computer seriously. However, it may hijack your web browser and cause a real havoc on it by changing DNS settings, delivering sponsored links, ads and slowing it down. We believe you do not want to experience these issues. That’s why you should not treat installation of new programs recklessly. ‘Bundling’ distribution method is getting increasingly popular, so more and more people complain about bundled installers. If people rush during installation of various download managers, PDF creators or media players, they can easily miss notes about plug-ins, add-ons, toolbars, or extensions that are going to the installed alongside your selected freeware. That’s why you should always double check programs before installing them and uncheck all check boxes claiming that you accept to install additional components. If DailyImageBoard Toolbar has already infected your computer, you should remove it alongside other related programs because otherwise, you may rediscover it after some time. You should do that as soon as possible in order to avoid redirects, slow downs, ads, and other issues.
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 DailyImageBoard 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.
