Do you know what OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar is?
OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar is a piece of software which is promoted on and can be downloaded from onlineroutefinder.com/index.jhtml. It is a new product of Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc, so even though it promises to enable users to get maps and directions with the click of a button, it cannot be trusted fully because it is known to be a potentially unwanted program, or a PUP. Our experienced specialists have decided to classify this program as a potentially unwanted application because it is not as useful as it claims to be on its official website. It really enables users to access maps, weather forecasts, gas prices, and other popular pages, including Facebook, Instagram, and Amazon, but, of course, it does not mean that users could not open these web pages without the help of OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar. Of course, it has been given the name of a potentially unwanted program not because of this. Read what specialists have to say about this piece of software and make the final decision yourself. If you decide to remove it, do this without consideration because other fully reliable programs for travelers exist and you will definitely not regret getting rid of this Mindspark product.
Many users get disappointed with OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar because they usually do not know that their browsers’ settings will be changed. Once they install this piece of software from its official website or it enters their computers using some kind of alternative, not so legal, method, they immediately notice a new page set as their homepage and New Tab pages. This page looks like an ordinary search tool with quick-access buttons at the top and in the middle. They all lead to well-known pages. At the bottom of the page, users can also receive information on how to get from point A to point B. The search box of search.myway.com works quite well too. It has been found that it is powered by the modified Google search engine. This, unfortunately, suggests that users might be provided with the modified search results too. For example, search results might be modified to open third-party pages which have nothing to do with entered search queries. Some companies provide users with these sponsored search results to get the so-called pay-per-click revenue. Be careful if you use the search box located on the page set by OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar.OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar screenshot
