Local Scavenger Toolbar Removal Tips

Presented by Mindspark Interactive Network, Local Scavenger Toolbar is a suspicious browser extension. The software is supposed to enrich user’s browsing by providing an easier access to movie trailers, music videos, and so on. The toolbar has an official website videoscavanger.com from where you can download this application directly.

Unfortunately, the page is not very informative. Once you install this toolbar, you will immediately notice that it changes your home page and default search engine to Ask.com. While the site is not malicious, the unexpected alteration can still be annoying. To undo these changes, you should terminate Local Scavenger Toolbar from your PC.

What does Local Scavenger Toolbar do?

As we already mentioned, Local Scavenger Toolbar changes your browsers’ settings. Ask.com will become your main page in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Even though the page is not dangerous, it does have a reputation as a website that promotes numerous third parties. The problem is that the sponsored parties are unknown. Consequently, every time you search for something with an engine presented to you by this toolbar, you will not be able to tell, if the provided links are safe. This means that you will be at a constant risk to be directed to an unknown page. Needless to say, such redirects can be harmful, since you may be exposed to malicious parties. We advise to be very careful and to avoid using this search tool. The best decision, of course, would be to remove Local Scavenger Toolbar and to recover your previous settings.

It was also noticed that the toolbar often travels alongside few browser helper objects (BHO) which may be installed alongside the software. The plug-ins are called VideoScavenger, Search Assistant BHO, and Toolbar BHO. These objects may collect your information in order to provide you with better services.

Another thing you should know is that some of the easy access links presented by this toolbar looks quite suspicious. After clicking any of them (Movie Reviews, Music Videos, Videos, Entertainment and More Videos), you may find yourself in an advertising supported website and get flooded with countless pop-ups, banners, in-text ads, and so on. We doubt that such outcome sounds inviting to you and thus, we advise to delete Local Scavenger Toolbar.
