MiniBar Removal Guide

Do you know what MiniBar is?

MiniBar is an application that often slithers into your system behind your back. It is not a malicious infection, as it does not destroy your system, nor does it try to steal your money. Nevertheless, if a program manages to enter your computer without your knowledge, that is enough to raise several security concerns. Therefore, any security-minded user would want to remove MiniBar immediately. The manual removal of this application is somewhat tricky because it cannot be uninstalled via Control Panel, but, even so, there are ways to get rid of the application, so there is no need to panic.

During our research, we were not able to locate the main website for this application. It is very likely that the program is usually distributed via third-party websites, bundled with other software. This also suggests that users often have the chance to deselect installing this application, but they fail to do so because they breeze through the installation steps. As a result, you have MiniBar and other unwanted applications running on your system, slowing down your browser, and collecting information on your web browsing habits. You may not even notice that at first, and that is why we strongly suggest running regular system scans with a reliable antispyware application.

When MiniBar is installed on your system, it usually adds an extension to your default browser. The browser in question is usually Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer. The Edge browser is not supported. With the extension up and running, you can expect this application to monitor your online activity. Usually, potentially unwanted programs collect such information for monetary purposes. It is very likely that the program will eventually expose you to corrupted content, with the intention of helping its creators make a profit. It is more than obvious that you should avoid such consequences.MiniBar Removal GuideMiniBar screenshot
