MyWebFace - How to remove?

 
UAB DIGIMA

MyWebFace Toolbar is a browser add-on that is used for changing a photo of a person into a cartoon. It works as follows: a computer user needs to install the toolbar to any of the two Internet browsers (Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer), after pressing on it you are taken to an online tool called mywebface. The latter makes changes to the photos and allows sharing the new cartoons. Although the toolbar itself is free of charge, it gets money from advertisements displayed to the application users. Together with its installation your home page and search engine will be changed to mywebsearch.com.

Note, MyWebFace is not related to viruses or malware. It is an adware application that aims at generating traffic to the sites it promotes. This is what company’s Privacy Policy states about advertisement:

Adware like MyWebFace collects information about your Internet browsing habits, pages you visit, URL’s you enter, etc. and might share it with third parties. If you are concerned about your privacy or you simply got annoyed by constant redirections and advertisements, you may wish to remove MyWebFace. Try searching for it in Control Panel Add and Remove programs list. If you do not see it there or among your browser extensions, you might need to use an automatic adware removal tool, such as spyhunter or Hitman Pro. These two anti-malware programs are capable of removing not only MyWebFace but also other infections.

For the future, remember that many unwanted programs are being distributed using other software. They come bundled with the latter. When you choose to install anything, read carefully all the information given during the installation, especially next to the check boxes. Very often unwanted adware is checked to be installed by default. It is a legal way of distributing it.
