About this extension

StudyHQ Toolbar is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and a questionable browser extension that could have installed without your explicit permission. It’s not a malicious infection but it’s not a useful extension either. It’s advertised as a tool that will help you log in to email more easily but it may also be able to redirect users to sponsored sites so that their owners could make money.

StudyHQ Toolbar

It is available for download on the official site but if you did not download it from there, it could have been added to some freeware that you installed. If that was the case, then you did not agree with the changes it would perform to your browser, such as your homepage and new tabs change. If you did not install it yourself, and did not agree with the changes, delete StudyHQ Toolbar.

How did it install onto your computer?

It’s available for download from the official website so you could have obtained it from there. However, it’s also possible that it was attached to freeware as an extra offer, and you did not notice. This is not uncommon and a lot of unwanted programs are attached to freeware to make them spread wider. Fortunately, it’s not difficult to prevent their installation. You just need to choose Advanced or Custom settings when installing freeware, and deselect all the offers that become visible there. Make sure you deselect everything before proceeding with the installation, unless you want to be stuck having to remove StudyHQ Toolbar or similar over and over again.

Why uninstall StudyHQ Toolbar?

If you didn’t install it willingly, the changes that it will perform will surprise you. Your browser’s settings will be altered so that hp.myway.com is set as your homepage and new tabs. These changes will be irreversible unless you delete StudyHQ Toolbar from the computer. The changes may affect all popular browsers you have installed, whether it’s Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. The extension is advertised as a tool to help you log in to your email easier so your new homepage will have links to popular email services. There will also be a search engine, which we do not suggest using since it could be able to insert sponsored content into the results. Hijacker promoted search engines tend to do that because they want to redirect users to sponsored sites, since owners earn money from increased traffic. Those redirects could also lead to malicious sites, so you could end up with malware. You should remove StudyHQ Toolbar.
