The affected browser should start loading every time you launch the browsing application (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox). Below the address bar, the search engine provides a toolbar with an additional search box and links to various web pages. These features may seem useful, but even then we do not think it would be wise to continue using this application.

The ads could be not only annoying but also potentially dangerous because we do not know where they may come from or what they might offer.
