In case that there is an unwanted browser extension installed on your computer and you want to remove it immediately, you have to follow the guide below in accordance to the browser you use. Also, after the add-on is removed, do not forget to change your default home page and choose a reliable and effective search provider. This is due to the fact that browser add-ons usually change your home page to their own sites and make themselves your default search providers.

Also, when you have used an unwanted browser add-on it is really important to choose and install a reliable anti-virus application. This is so because the presence of toolbars on your PC may sometimes lead to unwanted redirects to suspicious and insecure pages and all of this may end in infecting your PC with scamware, malware, keyloggers and other viruses. For this reason, we recommend you download a genuine and trustworthy security program like SpyHunter.

You can download the automated malware removal tool SpyHunter from the link below:
