Do you know what My Online Calendar is?
You see Search.myonlinecalendar.co set as your new homepage on Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer because you have installed My Online Calendar on your computer. You could have installed this piece of software willingly, or it could have been installed on your system without your permission. It acts the same in both cases, i.e., it changes web browsers’ settings right away. Since it can show up on users’ computers without their knowledge and apply modifications, My Online Calendar is usually called a browser hijacker. Your browsers have already been hijacked too if Search.myonlinecalendar.co is opened for you when you launch your browser. This page looks like an ordinary search tool, but it cannot be called a legitimate search provider. There are several reasons it cannot be called trustworthy. You will find all you need to know about it in the next paragraph. If you decide to remove this search tool from all browsers, pay more attention to the final paragraph of this report.
Search.myonlinecalendar.co does look like a search tool that can be trusted, but it would be a pure lie if we told you that it is safe to use it. It not only looks legitimate, but also returns search results when the search query is entered and, additionally, makes it possible to open addictinggames.com, news.mynewswire.co, the local weather forecast, and other websites with the mouse click. Unfortunately, not everything is as pretty as it seems to be at first sight. The more thorough analysis has shown that search results this search tool provides users with are not all trustworthy. If you use Search.myonlinecalendar.co as your default search provider, the chances are high that you will find the modified search results located on the search results page opened for you. You will sooner or later click on them because it is hard to distinguish them from ordinary search results. These modified search results are not malicious, but you might end up on an untrustworthy third-party page after clicking on any of them. It is unclear what you will find on these pages, so we cannot promise that you will not find untrustworthy software on these websites you are taken to. The presence of untrustworthy search results is one of those reasons why you should go to erase Search.myonlinecalendar.co from your browsers mercilessly, but it is not the only one.
The unexpected appearance of Search.myonlinecalendar.co on browsers can mean only one thing – the browser hijacker has been installed on your computer without permission. Most likely, it has arrived on your computer in a software bundle together with third-party applications, but, theoretically, you could have installed it by clicking on a pop-up promoting it accidentally too. Either way, it would be best to remove it because the search tool set is definitely not the most trustworthy search provider.
You can get rid of My Online Calendar quite easily. To leave no undesirable changes applied to your browsers, we suggest that you reset them to default settings one by one. We hope that you will find our manual removal guide (see below) helpful, but if it is the opposite, go to acquire an antimalware tool and perform a system scan with it.

In non-techie terms:
My Online Calendar is not a beneficial piece of software. It is a hijacker that sets a new page as a homepage on users’ browsers. Search.myonlinecalendar.co does look quite trustworthy at first glance, but it cannot be called a legitimate search provider because it shows the modified search results to users. On top of that, it might record your search queries containing personal details. Because of this, we recommend removing it from all affected browsers as soon as possible.
