What is Gadgetbox?

Gadgetbox is a computer application which is supposed to help you access all the computer programs you may need. Once you install the application, a Gadgetbox icon appears on the screen. The application allows the user to use calculator, Magic 8 ball, and other tools. We recommend that you remove Gadgetbox as this application can change the settings of your browsers.


How does Gadgetbox work?

Gadgetbox alters the settings of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. However, the changes differ. From example, no browser plug-in is installed on Google Chrome, only the home page button and search provider are changed.

If you have installed Gadgetbox toolbar, which is the older version of Gadgetbox, you must have noticed that the installer offers you to choose what changes should be made on the browsers. Here are the options that are presented in the installation wizard:

Install the GadgetBox toolbar
Set the home page to on my browsers
Make my default search engine

As you can see, the home page of the browsers can be changed to What is more, the startup page presents one display ad at a time. You will be offered to take part in a quiz, play a computer game, scan the PC, and so on. Ignore all those ads as they may deceive you into exposing your personally identifiable information, including your name, e-mail address, phone number, zip code, and so on.

Additionally, you will be provided with third-party links, which are presented as advertisements. These paid ads should also be ignored, as they may be unrelated to your search queries, even though they are expected to be.
