About this threat

SportsHero Toolbar is advertised as a useful toolbar when in actual reality it is a potentially unnecessary application. It could be advertised as a good toolbar but in reality, it is only attempting to make revenue. If you frequently install freeware, it wouldn’t be shocking if that’s how you acquired the toolbar. If you do not pay attention when installing free applications, don’t be shocked if you end up with this toolbar or some other unneeded software. It’s quite a low-level contamination, although your browser’s settings will be altered and you’ll be rerouted. You should still be careful not to get redirected to malware -ridden web pages since you can end up with a much more severe threat. If you wish to avoid a possibly much more severe infection, we recommend you terminate SportsHero Toolbar the second you see it on your PC.
