InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar Removal Instructions
InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar is a potentially unwanted application that is promoted as a “speed connection testing toolbar”. It is supposed to check your Internet speed and perform quick download tests. The software is promoted at free.internetspeedtracker.com where you can download it. The program is powered by Ask which means that during its installation you will also be offered to set Ask.com as your home page and default search engine.
You can decline this offer by unchecking the boxes with Ask.com. The application does not provide you with anything useful and is actually aimed at promoting its sponsors. You should delete InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar from your system without hesitation.
How does InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar work?
InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar is just one of many Mindspark Interactive Network Inc. programs. Other toolbars that work in a similar manner include RecipeHub, EliteUnzip, MyScrapNook, Cursor Mania, CitySearch and many more. All of these toolbars promise some kind of a useful service, however, their main purpose is to advertise their related sites. InternetSpeedTracker is no different. As soon as you install it, you will see a bar appear in your browser that will contain a search box and such quick access buttons as Tips to Boost Speed, Listen to the Radio, Weather and Internet Speed Tracker.
Together with the application you usually also install Ask.com search tools. The website gets set as your home page and default search provider. If you make use of it, you will be presented with sponsored content. Commercial data makes your web browsing less safe as some of the adverts presented to you are fictitious. You could be exposed to unreliable links and land on corrupted pages because of them. That is not something you should take lightly. You should improve your online safety and get rid of InternetSpeedTracker Toolbar.
