✔ Best Answer
"what do you think about the toolbar?"

It's spyware/adware. Did you do a Google search about it before installing? Uninstall it (if you can) then run a full virus & malware scan.

like many toolbars it just slows down your web-browser. Every toolbar you add causes the browser to use more RAM. Not only that. it reduces the size of the browser window.

A friend of mine had so many toolbars, his browser window was only half normal size!
And he didn't even know how most of them got there!

Search Gboxapp


GBoxApp is not a virus, but is privacy attacking software that should be well-known as malware. GBoxApp and other BHOs labeled browser hijackers can attack the privacy of a computer system without permission, or with permission, just not clear way of the intent of their actions .Finally such tools can collect information from the computer which may contain personal information or browser data such as history. I hope this clears a few things to you !

Search Gboxapp


The GBoxapp is awesome software that allows us to have the most beneficial applications all from one “box .But, along with its virtuous benefits, it also has established some bad advertising. So, let me correct whatever misconception you have on the GBoxapp: the GBOXAPP IS NOT A VIRUS.The GBoxapp also installs its matching toolbar. This is just a modest toolbar, similar to the Yahoo toolbar, Alot , Ask, AVG, and several other download accelerators. Now there is much argument in the internet when it comes to toolbars. Many think that toolbars are viruses, they actually are not. They are just modest browser add-ons that have been misinterpreted by many. Many of these application toolbars are also from anti-virus corporations. And some, like the GBoxapp, are certain to be virus-free.
It is only common defensive that we really become careful of the applications we download and fix.

joyarain,

Thanks for going through our old threads until you decided to help with this one.
Stop spamming your crap spyware gboxapp, it should be removed. The fact that you guys join this site and then try to lie to us, means we should trust this spyware even less than we did.
