EveryDayManuals virus or EveryDayManuals redirect virus – this is how some computer users and spyware researchers tend to call this browser add-on. In reality, it is a non-malicious application, which is entirely legitimate. However, we assume that some users do not find its features pleasant, so we have decided to analyze this program and see what it has been created for.
What is known about EveryDayManuals Toolbar?
EverydayManuals Toolbar can be described as a legitimate system tool, which might add a browser extension to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and possibly other web browsers. This extension changes default homepage and new tab page and adjusts settings to make MyWay search engine appear on these pages. It also provides shortcuts to pages providing various manuals. It is evident that Search.Myway.com engine displays quite a lot of sponsored search results, which appear firstly in the results page. The regular search results follow them, so the user has to scroll down the page each time to find relevant information. Therefore, if you do not want to receive many ads within your search results, you can just remove EveryDayManuals Toolbar from your computer and use another search engine instead. Beware, because third-party links can lead you to vague web pages, so we recommend you to avoid clicking on suspicious links and ads if you decide to open these sponsored search results.
What is more, some computer users might not want to allow PC programs to track their non-personal information such as IP address, browser type, language, time-stamp, search queries, search results clicked, software installed on user’s PC and devices connected to user’s PC. As you can see, this program can collect quite a lot of information! Besides, this program integrates third-party links within its services, and also allows “third-parties, including […] authorized service providers, IAC affiliates, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements or place ad tags or beacons on or via MS Services. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements.” If you do not want to allow this toolbar to collect such data about your browsing preferences and if you are not interested in sponsored content, then use EveryDayManuals removal instructions that we have provided below and delete this system tool from your system.
How can this program be installed?
Some people tend to complain that such potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) like EveryDayManuals hijack their computers without their knowledge. However, speaking about this particular program, we want to say that it cannot be installed without user’s authorization. However, sometimes users tend to rush when they install programs, and as a result, they miss the possibility to reject optional downloads added to them. Some free programs advertise third-party software and suggest installing optional components for free, but if the user does not want to get them, he/she needs to opt them out manually. That is why we always recommend choosing Advanced or Custom settings and then deselecting suspicious optional components, search tools, new tab pages and similar applications manually.
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 EveryDayManuals 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.
