What can I use MyScrapNook Toolbar for?
MyScrapNook Toolbar is an application that allows making collages, invitations, flyers, and other printable sheets that people often need. However, we believe that you should think twice before installing it on the system because this app has recently been categorized as a potentially unwanted program (or PUP). That’s because it may drop its components on each of your web browsers, change their settings and initiate other changes. Usually, people report about MyScrapNook Toolbar redirect to unknown search engines, such as myway.com. Unfortunately, but this is the cause of a careless installation of this program. To prevent additional system changes, you should opt only for Custom or Advanced installation of this toolbar.
If you have already installed this toolbar on your computer, you may see pop-up notifications and links from third party websites. You should be careful with them because the developer of this toolbar does not guarantee that each of these links and other content is safe. This we can prove with the help of this quote taken from the EULA of this program: “All services, feeds and content, including without limitation, all data, links, articles, graphic or video messages and all information, text, software, music, sound, graphics or other materials (“Content”) made available or accessible through a MS Product, whether publicly available or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the entity or person from whom it originated. You hereby acknowledge and agree that by using an MS Product you may be exposed to Content that may be offensive, indecent or objectionable in your community. You agree to accept all risks associated with the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy or completeness of such Content.”
How can MyScrapNook Toolbar show up on my computer?
There are tens of toolbars similar to MyScrapNook that belong to the same developer. All these toolbars are accompanied by related search engines that can be prevented by monitoring their installation on the system. To install the only app, which is MyScrapNook, you should opt for Custom or Advanced installation of the freeware. Note that its developer also mentions that its programs “may integrate, be integrated into, bundled, or be provided in connection with third-party services, feeds and/or content”. No matter that we can’t claim that this toolbar is spread with the help of bundling, you should monitor installation of every freeware to protect yourself and your computer.
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 MyScrapNook 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.
