ConnectSo Toolbar is a browser extension which is categorized as a browser hijacker because of its capability to change the home page and the search provider of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. However, unlike really violent browser hijackers, ConnectSo Toolbar, or rather its installer, provides you with options related to the changes of the settings. Nevertheless, a lot of computer users simply ignore the information that they are provided with which leads to their thinking that the computer is infected, especially when ConnectSo Toolbar is bundled with other applications.
Some browser extensions based on Conduit very often arrive at the PC powered by an e-mail notifier, a button that provides weather forecasts and some links to social networking websites. In the case of ConnectSo Toolbar, there are only a few buttons, or links. ConnectSo Toolbar enables quick access to Facebook, Twitter and two other websites. Moreover, it promotes Price Gong and Value Apps, which you should ignore if you want to avoid annoying search-based advertisements and coupons. These applications are often promoted by Conduit toolbars, including CouponAlert toolbar, SearchFlyBar2 toolbar and many others.
Since the application adds little functionality to your browsers and the search engine promoted by it displays various advertisements, we recommend that you remove the toolbar and provide the system with professional protection against computer threats. After installation, search.conduit.com is set as the home page. The advertisements that are displayed on the startup page are likely to have no relation to your actual browsing interests. Moreover, the ads are not endorsed by the search engine, which means that if you click on them, you do it at our own risk. It is important to note that not all of the ads provided by search.conduit.com are malicious. You may find social ads that are provided without any bad intensions. In order not to risk your privacy, fix your browsers and choose a more reliable search provider.
In order to remove ConnectSo Toolbar from the computer, you can choose from two options. If you are determined to remove ConnectSo Toolbar manually, follow the instructions provided below and then scan the computer. If you think that it is too time-consuming, we recommend that you choose the second option which is automatic removal. To have the unwanted toolbar removed for you, implement SpyHunter. Not only will this program terminate the Conduit toolbar but also shield the system from the various computer threats. As a result, you will be able to browse the Internet freely and safely.
