Mysearch.com by APN, LLC is dangerous browser hijacker for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari, that modifies settings of search engine and homepage. APN (Ask Partner Network) is related to once popular search engine Ask.com, that was distributed via unwanted toolbars installations. Mysearch.com looks like legitimate search website with search box, shortcuts with quick links to social networks and shopping sites and is said to be “enhanced by Google”. After closer research, it turns out, that users queries are redirected to search.mysearch.com, that is filled with third-party ads in search results and is quite different from Google SERPs.
Your Template Finder Toolbar is misleading browser add-on for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. It was developed by IAC Applications a.k.a. MindSpark Interactive Network, well-know developer of adware applications and hijacking toolbars. YourTemplateFinder, according to the developers, provides access to design templates for your business, such as PowerPoint templates, website, e-mail and logo templates, business planners and calendars. Along with that, you get toolbar with search box and quick access links to weather and social widgets. Search engine and homepage settings in your browsers are compromised and modified to hp.myway.com.
QuickPDFMerger Toolbar or Quick PDF Merger New Tab is annoying browser hijacker, that infects Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer on Windows or MacOS. Extension was developed by IAC Applications a.k.a. MindSpark Interactive Network – notorious vendor of toolbars and adware platforms. QuickPDFMerger is add-on, that helps users perform various actions with PDF files, for example, combine several files into one, convert such files into other formats, create slideshows and share files on multiple platforms using different tools. Unfortunately, along with aforementioned features QuickPDFMerger Toolbar does certain modifications with browser settings. It replaces homepage to hp.myway.com and redirects user’s search queries to int.search.myway.com, that, presumably, is enhanced and powered by Google, however, provides search results stuffed with sponsored links and excessive advertising.
PoliticalNewsCenter Toolbar is another fishy browser extension for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer from MindSpark Interactive Network. As any other add-on from this developer, PoliticalNewsCenter provides somewhat useful features in a narrow field (in this case political news, obviously), but in exchange in gets access to private browser data and settings. So, toolbar has quick access links to some popular news resources, posts some news on the main page. But the most vile thing is in the inside – it modifies browser search engine and homepage to third-party search.myway.com, or other unknown search with sponsored results. Frequently, after the removal of PoliticalNewsCenter Toolbar those settings remain unchanged.
Search.tb.ask.com or hp.tb.ask.com is unwanted search engine by Mindspark Interactive, that is often used in toolbars designed by this company. Can be also promoted separately. It can infect Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Search queries are redirected to int.search.tb.ask.com, which is Ask.com search engine result page. Ask.com is legitimate search engine, but results it delivers can be filled with sponsored links and extra advertising. Distribution methods are doubtful, and Mindspark Toolbars are classified as browser hijackers and potentilly unwanted programs.
