MyDigitalCalendar Toolbar is a browser extension created by Mindspark Interactive Network. Due to its negative features, it is classified as a browser hijacker. Security experts noticed it spreading in Germany,[1], Algeria, and Egypt. However, it might spread further in other countries as well.

This browser extension is promoted as a tool that allows accessing free printable and online calendars. However, after installation, it also changes default search engine to Other characteristics of the hijacker include:

  • Affects Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer web browsers;

MyDigitalCalendar virus after the infiltration might alter Windows Registry and browser’s settings in order to prevent users from removing this browser extension and setting their preferred search engine.

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
