Incredibar - How to remove?
What is Incredibar?
Incredibar is browser toolbar that installs to all of major Internet browsers and redirects random computer systems to mystart.incredibar dot com. It badly complicates your activities on the Internet by redirecting your search results and giving you different information that you were actually looking for. It can also add some websites to your bookmark list that you never even thought of adding there. On low memory conditions, it will slow your PC as well. Changing browser settings and redirecting searches classifies Incredibar as browser hijacker.
Incredibar can get inside the system using emails that come with the advertisements. Such emails might be result of cross-promotion using other adware of this company. Once you click on them, Incredibar will be installed on your browser. This type of hijackers can collect all information about your activity and send the information to the marketing companies that later on use this data and display advertisements. However, this way the Incredibar violates your privacy. As compensation, this toolbar allows playing some “free” games, that have advertisements.
Another way to get Incredibar hijacker is installing it with various fake Codecs or similar. These programs distribute toolbars that pay for each install. This is less than honest marketing tactics. Quite often, such bundles do not provide proper uninstall for Incredibar and other software as well. Then PC owners start complaining about “mystart.incredibar (dot)com virus”, that hijacks start page and search provider, though in most cases they missed the checkbox during installation.
I would recommend remove Incredibar if you notice this add-on installed on ones PC by kids or if you installed it without knowing what this software is. Do not forget change search provider back to google or bing. Spyhunter can protect your home page from hijacking by parasites like this.
