What is Incredibar?
Incredibar Toolbar is a browser add-on, which adds shortcuts to your Internet browsers. There are two variants of this toolbar: one for music related enhancements, and the other for flash games.
While this toolbar can be useful for people wishing to download videos or quickly access online flash games, it is also categorized as an unwanted program for several reasons.
Incredibar Toolbar alone is not related to spyware or malware, however, this toolbar could be deemed 'unwanted', since deceptive ads are shown in mystart.incredibar.com (the homepage set by this toolbar), and PC users are unable to fully remove it using Control Panel.
If you overlook information presented within the software installation windows, then installation of Incredibar Toolbar can potentially change your homepage to mystart.incredibar.com and default search engine to MyStart.
The search engine used by this toolbar is a modified Google search with unrelated advertisements, which are not clearly separated from organic search results. This new homepage will also display deceptive ads below the search tab.
Incredibar Toolbar can be downloaded from its homepage, however, this browser add-on is often bundled with free software, thus computer users can install it unwillingly, believing they are installing free software that they have downloaded. This toolbar self-installs on Internet Explorer and Mozilla FireFox Internet browsers.
If you inadvertently installed Incredibar Toolbar, and you have trouble removing it, use these instructions to eliminate it from your PC. This removal guide demonstrates how to remove both Incredibar Toolbars (games and music).
