What you must know about is a website that promotes Total Recipe Search Toolbar. However, computer security experts claim that having this toolbar on your computer may cause various inconveniences for you. Once this toolbar gets installed, you will be provided with a new browser homepage. It will be set to the Ask Search page. In most of the cases, people who have attempted to use this toolbar or Ask Search, report about such issues: redirects to questionable websites, system slow downs, commercial content that appears during their browsing sessions and similar problems. Of course, this program is NOT malicious or dangerous by itself, but it might advertise third-party companies, which might be questionable. We have investigated Total Recipe Search Toolbar’s Terms of Use, and this is what we found:

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

Such statements sound suspicious, don’t they? They speak for themselves. The question is, do you really need this program? The decision is yours.

How can Total Recipes Search be installed?

You can easily download Total Recipes Search Toolbar from the official website, but there is a possibility you might be offered to install it together with another program as well. Such distribution method is legitimate. However, many computer users skip the statements about the promotion of additional software because they tend to rush through the installation process by clicking ‘Next’ all the time. You should not behave like that. You can always monitor the software components and disagree to install the suggested applications by selecting ‘Advanced’ or ‘Custom’ installation method. Then the setup provides an additional window, which displays a list of programs that are recommended to install. If you do not want to install them, deselect these suggestions by removing the ‘tick’ sign from them. In case you have already installed Total Recipes Search Toolbar, and if you wish to delete it from your system, please study the removal instructions that are provided on the following page.

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 Total Recipes Search 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.

    it is not a virus, first of all. you can realize that it happened if you see changes on your computer that were made without your intervention. look for new toolbars, unexpectedly set homepages and similar signs. moreover, a computer slowdown can also be a sign that you have installed a suspicious app
