Freecause Toolbar is not a browser plugin you should install on your web browsers. The application is presented at freecause.ourtoolbar.com and you can install it on Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers. The application may seem completely normal; however, it does not provide reliable services. The toolbar is quite useless, as it provides links to Facebook, online radio and an unreliable search engine search.conduit.com. Our researchers have discovered that when downloading the toolbar, you may be offered to install a few other programs. We do not recommend this because all programs should be acquired from their original websites where you can find EULA and Privacy Policy documents. Continue reading if you wish to find out more information on the application and Freecause Toolbar removal.

The suspicious Freecause Toolbar may be offered to you during the installation of other software; however, it is usually installed from the aforementioned website. If you click the download button, you are presented with the installation wizard and such third-party applications as PasswordBox, TuneUp Utilities 2013 and Conduit Search. The first two programs are not extremely malicious; however, you should not expect reliable services from them. You should be particularly cautious about the Conduit Customized Web Search. It is not recommended that you accept the offered home page and default search provider changes because the Conduit search tools are unreliable. For example, once your home page is switched to search.conduit.com, your web searches may be interrupted by unreliable advertisement-supported results. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you delete the suspicious Conduit search tools. Note that you may need to perform this task if you have installed such Conduit software as OurWorld Toolbar or MixiDJ V45 Toolbar as well.

You may be tempted to remove Freecause Toolbar manually; however, this task is not always easy. If your personal computer is already infected with dangerous computer infections, you may face removal obstacles. To make sure that your PC is not infected with other threats employ a reliable spyware scanner (click the download button) to examine the system. Of course, you can attempt the manual removal as well; however, after the task is complete you should install reliable spyware detection and removal software right away.
