IQmango Toolbar Removal Guide

Do you know what IQmango Toolbar is?

IQmango Toolbar is a browser plugin which can be installed onto Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. The application is most notable for its ability to infiltrate such third party programs as Value Apps, Search Protect and Trovi search. As you may have discovered yourself already, these applications are installed automatically, and you have to un-check appropriate boxes manually in order to refuse these applications. Needless to say, this is an obstacle for those computer users who do not take the time with the installation of the truly suspicious browser extension. Do you wish to delete IQmango Toolbar from your browsers and the computer because you were disappointed by the provided services? Then continue reading to learn how.

Even though the suspicious tool is usually downloaded from, in certain cases it could be offered by third party software distributors or it could come bundled with other freeware. If you have chosen the official download page, we recommend that you pay close attention to the displayed setup. If you do not wish to install Search Protect, Value Apps and the so-called Trovi search tools, you need to un-check the presented offers and only then continue with the installation of IQmango Toolbar. Note that Trovi search is actually the Conduit search which is presented as (home page) and IQmango Customized Web Search (default search provider). These search tools can spy on your virtual activity, flood you with unreliable advertisements and present suspicious search results. Note that instead of providing you with original search results, Conduit search will redirect you to

Just like the unreliable Trovi search tools and the Value Apps, IQmango Toolbar can breach your virtual security. If you do not delete the application from the system, soon enough you could find added or removed bookmarks. Furthermore, the application could manage existing browser plugins, record your browsing history and expose it to unknown third parties. For these reasons we recommend that you remove IQmango Toolbar as soon as possible. You can use automatic malware detection and removal software to get rid of the extension, after which you should change your browser settings using the manual removal guides below.
