FreeManualsIndex by MyWay is a malicious extension. It is supported by the Mindspark Interactive Network, which stands behind numerous malicious programs that roam the Web. FreeManualsIndex, in particular, is classified as a potentially unwanted program. A PUP, for short, and it has both adware and browsers hijacker capabilities. You better act fast to remove this pest before it has the chance to turn your browsing activities into a nightmare. Because it definitely will, trust us. Do not give it the time to succeed.

The longer the pest stays, the more problems it causes. Some of the damage may be irreversible as well. Take immediate measures. Your first clue is the appearance of the Search.myway.com site.

As you can imagine, all these interruptions make your web surfing an impossible task. It is not safe anymore. Nor it is fun. You are constantly being harassed and exposed to malware. Yes, nothing the PUP displays is reliable. You may infest your PC with more infections with a single click. And that’s not all. The PUP also jeopardizes your privacy. It spies on your, monitors every online move of your and collects information. When it decides it has enough, it sends it to the people who created it. There is no need of explaining why this is dangerous, is there? Remove the nasty intruder ASAP and protect your PC and your private details. Use our removal guide below to do that manually.

But how did you get stuck with this PUP in the first place? The chances are you didn’t even notice when the infiltration happened. This is because the PUP tricked you into installing it. It still needs your permission to enter and it used sneaky tactics to get it. Of course, you were left oblivious. The trick infections like this use are many. Some of them include spam emails, corrupted pages, third-party ads, unverified download sources, illegitimate torrents, bogus updates, freeware/shareware bundles, etc.

Each infection can do the job IF you provide your inactive cooperation. By inactive cooperation, we mean your negligence. If you are in a rush and don’t pay attention, you click “yes” to everything and one of these yes`s was your permission for the PUP to enter. Be more careful. Carefully read what you agree to and don’t let infections dupe you. They pray for your carelessness. Without it, they cannot succeed.
