FromDocToPDF Toolbar Contains Potentially Unwanted Programs

The website www.fromdoctopdf.com has a toolbar called FromDocToPDF that contains Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP). Potentially Unwanted Programs are applications that contain adwares, toolbars or web browser hijackers. These programs tend to be difficult to remove after they have been installed on your computer.

This is how the FromDocToPDF toolbar looks:

If you have already installed this toolbar, click here to use Adw Cleaner to remove the Potentially Unwanted Programs that were installed. AdwCleaner is a very small program and doesn't require any installation.

I do not recommend downloading and installing the FromDocToPDF. Click here to learn more about Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP).
