Do you know what Smileys We Love Toolbar is?
Smileys We Love Toolbar is a browser plugin that provides you with a galore of emoticons for various instant messaging chats. The toolbar is compatible with every main browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and it supports such online chatting environments as Yahoo!, Gmail, Hotmail and even Facebook. It is not a computer infection, but users are strongly recommended to remove Smileys We Love Toolbar from their computers if it was not their intention to install it in the first place, because such browser extensions are always wrought with various security issues.
This browser extension is created by Squeaky Chocolate Ltd. You can easily download the toolbar at smileyswelove.com or any other third party website that distributes freeware, but think before you install this application – it ALWAYS comes with additional features that are not exactly useful. Naturally, this extension does not infect you; after all, it requires user’s consent to be installed on your computer. Therefore, you can choose whether you want to install all the features and all the additional programs during Smileys We Love Toolbar’s installation. Take note, that with “recommended” setup you get your browser settings modified:
Install SmileysWeLove and Delta Toolbar. Delta is a popular free toolbar designed to make browsing and searching the Internet faster and easier! Delta Toolbar gives you access to a large variety of radio, music & news stations, comprehensive term, text and web page translations
These browser modifications present the biggest security issues, because Delta Search also displays a number of pop-up advertisements that could be infected with external links that lead to corrupted and malware infested sites. What is more, were you to install the entire setup for Smileys We Love Toolbar, you will also get a computer optimization program called TuneUp Utilities 2013 that is often bundled with various browser plugins.
