CursorMania Toolbar Removal Tips
CursorMania Toolbar is a browser add-on developed by Mindspark Interactive Network. It allows you to change the design of your mouse cursor and adds a toolbar to your browsers that contains a search box and quick access links. The application has an official page at cursormania.com where you can download it. If you download it from this site, you will also be offered to replace your search tools with Ask.com.
CursorMania Toolbar may come bundled with malicious software or installed as an optional feature of My Web Search Toolbar, so it is very possible that it was never your intention to acquire it. If that is the case, you should terminate CursorMania Toolbar as soon as you can.
How does CursorMania Toolbar work?
CursorMania Toolbar is not the only one of its kind. Other Minspark toolbars include PuzzleGamesDaily, BetterCareerSearch, EliteUnzip, ButterflyField, ReferenceBoss and more. Once you install the application, you will notice that a toolbar has appeared in all of your browsers. This toolbar contains the Ask.com search box and quick access buttons such as Cursors, Screensavers, Wallpapers and similar. If you did not decline it during the installation, Ask Search will also be set as your search provider and tb.home.ask.com will become your home page.
CursorMania Toolbar is promoted via various online advertisements and it could come with other software that may not be entirely reliable. Aside from browser settings modifications, the add-on can also cause redirects to its related sites. Moreover, it is associated with MyWebSearch Toolbar. This engine can slow down your computer speed and also redirect you to unfamiliar pages. In general, you should know that freeware rarely comes alone. So, every time you install free software be sure to check what else you are offered. Most of the time it is not anything useful.
