The iMesh Music Toolbar is often referred to as a potentially unwanted program because it comes bundled with freeware, such as iMesh – a legitimate program for downloading and sharing music files on the Web.
The add-on can be easily installed along with other applications without the user even noticing it. The installation of the iMesh Music Toolbar along with the iMesh freeware is explicitly mentioned in the End User License Agreement on the official website of the product. Like in the most cases, the user can avoid obtaining add-ons and plug-ins by carefully reading the Policies of the programs that the user downloads online or by selecting the Advanced preferences during the installation process.
