Where does PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar come from?

This toolbar has at least two distribution methods. For one, it can be easily downloaded from puzzlegamesdaily.com. Usually adware programs are not available for download at their main homepages, but that is not the case with PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar. Just like any other browser extension from the MindSpark family (including KnowTheBible Toolbar, How ToSimplified Toolbar, ConservativeTalkNow toolbar, and so on) has a working direct download button, but we have to remember that direct download is seldom the primary adware distribution source.

That having been said; we have to discuss the other distribution method applied by PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar. This distribution method is by far more common than the direct download. According to our security researchers, PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar often comes bundled with freeware and potentially unwanted software. In such a case, users often do not notice they install unwanted applications, but that does not mean PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar enters your system uninvited.

What does PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar do?

PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar is compatible with all the major browsers, so it installs extensions to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. On top of that, some users even think that PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar is a browser hijacker because it modifies their browser settings.

Although PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar IS NOT a browser hijacker, it might happen if you install the full setup of this application. The toolbar comes bundled with Ask search engine, and it can be set as your default homepage and search provider. It is not advisable to keep Ask Search on your browser because it is not reliable. Ask.com discontinued the search engine service almost three years ago, so it is not clear as to what kind of search engine Ask Search uses, and whether it is trustworthy.

What’s more, PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar cannot be allowed to stay on your computer too because as an adware application, it displays a lot of unfamiliar content. For all its worth, it could accidentally expose you to malware-related websites.

How to remove PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar?

It is obvious that you have to uninstall PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar if you wish to avoid various computer security issues. Luckily, it is not hard to delete PuzzleGamesDaily Toolbar via Control panel. However, don’t forget to restore your browser settings because Ask Search will not disappear anywhere. We provide instructions on how to restore your browser settings, but it is always a good idea to invest in a powerful computer security application that will protect your PC in the future.
