Do you know what datamngr.dll is?

The suspicious datamngr.dll is a dynamic link library file which starts running on your computer once you install Searchqu Toolbar, iLivid Toolbar, BearShare Mediabar, iMesh Toolbar or Bandoo plugins on your Internet browser. The file is not considered malicious and you can usually find it under C:\Program Files. Since the component aids different programs, various sizes of the file have been noticed, starting from 700B and finishing with 1,4MB. This is not enough to slow down the computer on its own; however, once the component starts running alongside other files you may witness some speed issues. So how should you remove datamngr.dll?

Since datamngr.dll is not a malicious file you should face no issues when dealing with manual removal procedures. However, it does not make much sense to delete datamngr.dll and leave out the rest of the components which compose, for example, MediaBar.
