What is SuddenlyMusic Toolbar?
SuddenlyMusic Toolbar is a browser plug-in, which is a new member of Mindspark family. This company has already released various toolbars targeted at a certain group of people who share the same interests, for example, MySocialShortcut Toolbar, TranslationBuddy Toolbar, JokeFanatic Toolbar, and many others. In case of SuddenlyMusic Toolbar, it’s obvious that it has been dedicated to the music lovers. It is supposed to provide lyrics to the most popular songs, access to DJ mixing sites, play games, access karaoke and so on. However, it’s developers do not inform that SuddenlyMusic Toolbar may enter your computer, infiltrate web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari) and start promoting third parties without asking for your permission.
Usually, it is distributed bundled in software packages, which means that it may be detected during the installation of another freeware. If it enters the system, it may modify default start page and search provider. Usually, it sets myway.com (which is powered by Ask) by default and may prevent you from replacing it in various ways. If such modifications have already been implemented on your computer, you should avoid surfing the net until you remove SuddenlyMusic Toolbar from your computer. That’s because you may be provided with altered search results, which may be filled with third party content.
To be more precise, this questionable plug-in may fill search results with links to predetermined advertisements and may flood every website that you visit with sponsored advertisements. Keeping in mind the fact that SuddenlyMusic Toolbar redirects may force you to visit suspicious third party websites and trick into downloading other suspicious apps, you should not delay removal of this plug-in. The easiest way to get rid of it completely is to initiate a scan with a reputable anti-spyware.
How can SuddenlyMusic Toolbar affect my computer?
You may find SuddenlyMusic Toolbar installed on your web browser without downloading it there. Your default homepage and search provider may be automatically changed to ask.com or myway.com out of nowhere, which is the most prominent sign indicating this potentially unwanted program (PUP) to be hiding in your computer. That may happen right after installing another freeware on your computer because Mindspark Inc. usually relies on software bundled to spread its apps. If you want to protect your computer, make sure that you always keep your guard up and install freewares attentively.
Whenever you decide to install a free program, you should make a research on it and start its installation only if you are sure that it’s reliable. Besides, always select Advanced or Custom installation option and monitor the installation from the beginning till the end. Otherwise, SuddenlyMusic Toolbar may affect your web browsers and initiate various issues during your browsing.
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 SuddenlyMusic 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.
