NewNoteCenter Toolbar

What is NewNoteCenter Toolbar?

NewNoteCenter Toolbar is a useless and potentially risky browser extension that offers you to "quickly take notes and create task lists"; however, since this tool was created by the infamous Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc., you should not have your hopes high. Our malware experts at say that this browser extension is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) just like any of its predecessors, including AtoZManuals Toolbar and FileConvertOnline Toolbar. This team has been a very productive one and has created dozens of useless tools that can pose a threat to your system security. This PUP changes your browser settings to install its featured search website containing its toolbar as your new home page and new tab page. This tool does not seem to change the default search engine setting. Still, it can expose you to questionable content any time you open your main browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, or when you open a new tab. This PUP promotes a potentially unreliable search engine that may present to you modified search results containing questionable third-party ads and links. Therefore, we suggest that you remove NewNoteCenter Toolbar from your browsers even if you may think that taking notes and creating lists could be a useful thing.test

Where does NewNoteCenter Toolbar come from?

This PUP is available officially in two sources. First, its promotional page,, which is a very simple page just like any other from this family. In fact, if you have security software installed, this page and the related pages could be considered as a threat and even blocked partially or fully. This is usually not the sign of reliability. This already should be enough for any security-minded user not to want to install this tool or to want to delete NewNoteCenter Toolbar if already installed. Second, it can be installed directly from the Chrome web store, On this page you can see that only 2 users have installed this tool in the past 3 months, which is rather suspicious. Before you could add this extension to your browsers, a pop-up comes up at the top, which informs you about the permissions this extension needs to be able to operate. Although most users would simply press "Add extension" right away, we encourage you to read this pop-up always carefully because you may change your mind when you see, for example, that this browser extension can:

  • Read and change all your data on the websites you visit
  • Replace the page you see when opening a new tab
  • Read and change your browsing history
  • Manage your downloads
  • Manager your apps, extensions, and themes

But, of course, these are not the only channels through which this PUP is spread on the web.

Unfortunately for you, this PUP can also be found spreading via freeware bundles. You can easily drop a bundle of PUPs and malicious threats onto your machine when you try to download free or cracked software from suspicious P2P websites, such as torrent and freeware pages. Such a bundle can pack browser hijackers, fake alerts, adware apps, and Trojans among others. You can seriously harm your system if you install such a package as you could be exposed to an increased number of unsafe third-party ads and other contents even on otherwise reputable sites. This is why we suggest that after you manage to delete NewNoteCenter Toolbar from your browsers, you scan your system with a reliable online malware scanner tool.

How does NewNoteCenter Toolbar work?

This questionable PUP provides you with a toolbar and a search engine on a page that is set as your home page and new tab page in your browsers. This toolbar features two quick links that enable you to create notes and lists on this page. We have not found anything shady about these tools; they seem to work just fine even if we would consider them totally useless. However, the main problem is that this PUP promotes a questionable search engine, that uses modified Google search results to display what you are looking for. Unfortunately, these results could contain potentially unreliable third-party ads and links since this PUP can only generate revenue by promoting affiliates this way. But clicking on questionable content is always risky and may come with a price. For instance, you could drop more serious malicious threats onto your system behind your back or open new tabs with malicious pages loaded and waiting to scam you out of your money or steal your personally identifiable information. Even if these scenarios may be rare, we still consider them as potentials. This is why we advise you to remove NewNoteCenter Toolbar from your computer.

Therefore, you also need to eliminate the unwanted extension in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Please follow our instructions below if you want some manual action. However, if you feel that it is time to protect your computer more efficiently, we suggest that you install a trustworthy anti-malware program (e.g., SpyHunter) as soon as possible.
