Remove Zwinky Toolbar from Your Browsers (Uninstall Guide)
Zwinky offers users to create their avatars, but this service comes with a price. In order to use Zwinky provided services users have to download a toolbar. Once the browser extension is installed it will change current homepage and default search engine, and that’s not all. Every time a new tab is opened it will load home.mywebsearch.com website. The promoted webpage is a search engine, which is completely rubbish. The home.mywebsearch.com website is created to display sponsored links, ads and other useless material. The only party which benefits from that website is the developers of the Zwinky because they are paid every time sponsored link is clicked.
Sometimes, the application seems to appear out of nowhere. This happens when user is installing freeware which is bundled with Zwinky toolbar. Developers of free software act like this in order to gain some financial benefit.
Once installed, it is very hard to get rid of Zwinky toolbar. Although, the application is not technically a virus it is still better if you removed it because it is just a useless piece of software which will start to annoy you sooner or later.
