Local Scavenger toolbar – what kind of program is it?

Local Scavenger Toolbar is described as a beneficial program to easily access online classifieds. Many people have already installed it from the official website since it looks like a really handy tool for those who are looking for a job, rental, furniture, local deals, services, and similar classifieds. Once you install this program, the homepage of your browser will be set to a customized Ask Search variation, for example, Your browser will also be supplemented with LocalScavenger toolbar, too. However, security experts do not recommend to keep this program on your system, because the Terms of Use of this program disclose some suspicious details about the function of this program. We have found out that it might be promoting third-party websites. Take a look at these statements:

The MS Products may integrate, be integrated into, bundled, or be provided in connection with third-party services, feeds, and/or content. […] MS Products may provide access to search results or other links to Third Party Partner websites or resources. MS has no control over such sites and resources, in which you acknowledge and agree that MS is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse nor responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources.

Now, look at this statement:

MS Products are exposed to various security issues, and should be regarded as unsecure.

Such claims are more than suspicious. It seems that this program might provide third-party links for you; according to our experience, we can say that third-party websites sometimes can be unsafe. Of course, we are not saying that this program promotes infectious websites. However, it is your decision whether you want to keep this program and use the search engine it provides. If you want to find out how to remove it, read the instructions on page 2.

How can I install Local Scavenger?

Local Scavenger toolbar can be downloaded from its official website. However, sometimes this program might be suggested to install when you download other programs from the same developer. We would like to share instructions how to avoid installing unwanted programs that might be promoted via other freeware:

  1. Be attentive when you launch the software installer. Follow each installation step carefully.
  2. Do not miss the important documents that can provide a lot of information about the software – read Terms of Use and Privacy Policy forms. They can explain to you how the program works.
  3. Set ‘Advanced’ or ‘Custom’ installation settings – then you will see the suggestions to install optional programs. If you do not want to install these programs, simply remove the tick sign from the agreements to install them.

Recently, the developer of this program contacted us asking us to remove this post from website. We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of Local Scavenger 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.
