Wallpapers Toolbar

Wallpapers Toolbar Description

The Wallpapers Toolbar is an annoying application published by Mindspark Interactive (now known as IAC Applications), a company whose name is associated with adware and potentially unwanted programs. The Wallpapers Toolbar software may be advertised as a useful Web browser utility that can help users improve the appearance of their homepage by adding a unique background image to it. While this may seem like a neat little trick, you should keep in mind that the Wallpapers Toolbar can achieve this by modifying your Web browser's default homepage. This means that instead of your default homepage, you may now see a 3rd-party website associated with the Wallpapers Toolbar software.Apart from modifying the user's homepage, the Wallpapers Toolbar also may change your search engine and new tab page automatically.

The worst part about the Wallpapers Toolbar's behavior is that it may be installed automatically. This potentially unwanted toolbar may often rely on software bundles for its distribution, and that's why a significant fraction of its users may not even recall agreeing to install the Wallpapers Toolbar. If you have this toolbar in your Web browser, yet you don't remember accepting to install it, then we advise you to take care of the problem as soon as you can. The removal of the WallPapers Toolbar should be executed with the assistance of an up-to-date anti-malware solution. However, you should keep in mind that anti-malware software can't restore the settings modified by Wallpapers Toolbar, so you may have t reconfigure your Web browser's homepage, search engine, and new tab page manually.
