What is MyWeddingAdviser Toolbar?
MyWeddingAdviser is yet another questionable application that is very similar to MyTransitGuide Toolbar, JokeFanatic Toolbar, BetterBabyGuide Toolbar and many others. Each program is introduced vividly and targeted at a certain category of people, for example, young mothers, people who travel a lot and so on. Unfortunately, we may assert that in reality they all act in the same way – affect user’s web browsers and try to promote third party websites. MyWeddingAdviser Toolbar is just a rogue application that fits the category of potentially unwanted programs because it’s mainly distributed via various freewares and usually tricks people into installing it without even being noticed.
If that happens, it may set ask.com as a default search engine, homepage, and new tab page. Later on, every time you search thru this search engine, MyWeddingAdviser virus may collect your search queries, investigate web sites that you visit, gather data that you enter there, take your email address, PC’s IP address and so on. If you wonder why it needs this information, beware that it mainly uses it for affiliate marketing. As a consequence, you may receive tens of commercial advertisements that perfectly correspond your recent researches.
Finally, you have to be very careful with MyWeddingAdviser redirects. Since this application is specifically designed to earn the money by driving visitor’s traffic to predetermined websites, you may receive altered search results and even don’t inspect that you are visiting sponsored websites. It’s not a secret anymore that third party websites are often filled with questionable content and may even try to spread suspicious programs. Therefore, if you want to decrease the risk of virus or malware infiltration, you should not delay removal of MyWeddingAdviser Toolbar and employ Reimage in order to eliminate it right now.
How can MyWeddingAdviser Toolbar infiltrate my computer?
MyWeddingAdviser Toolbar may appear on your computer in two ways. Firstly, it may appear on your computer when you decide to download it from its official site and install manually. However, researches show that users rarely visit this website and seldom get intrigued to install it. Much more frequently this misleading application gets inside random computer after installing another free application. Thus, if you have recently installed media player, PDF converter, download manager or any other kind of freeware and noticed MyWeddingAdviser Toolbar and ask.com as your search engine and homepage, there is no doubt that you have installed a bundled freeware and failed to opt out of its attachments.
In order to prevent such situation in the future, you have to install free programs very carefully.You should always opt for Advanced or Custom installation method. Of course, you may select Quick or Basic installation and save few minutes but then probably you will have to waste your time in order to remove various potentially unwanted programs. Keep in mind that Advanced or Custom installation option expands the process, allows monitoring it and opting out unwanted programs. Thus, if you see a check box stating that you accept to change your default homepage or search engine to unfamiliar one, you should never ever accept it. By the way, always opt out of various plug-ins, toolbars, add-ons or extensions.
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 MyWeddingAdviser 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.
