Fox News Toolbar is a browser plugin which is supposed to help you access Fox News podcasts from a personalized bar attached to your Internet Explorer, Safari and Mozilla Firefox browsers. In many cases, this toolbar is completely harmless and even useful; however, some Windows users claim that this web plugin is actually a browser hijacker which you need to delete from the system. According to our research, the toolbar acquired from downloadmytoolbar.com/FoxNews/Download/FoxNews_LP.html is not malicious but it definitely can distribute third-party products which are not as reliable. Without a doubt, you can remove Fox News Toolbar and all of the undesirable programs which have come along. Continue reading to learn how to perform this task.

The toolbar has been created by Conduit, and the company has released Internet Helper Toolbar, DivX Toolbar, Entrusted Toolbar and tens of other browser plugins. It has been discovered that all of these applications offer to install various suspicious programs. In the case of Fox News Toolbar, you will be suggested to install the Free Smileys We Love Extension and the TuneUp Utilities 2013 program. Both of these applications are free and they are set to install automatically. If you do not want to use them – un-check the boxes placed next to them during the installation process, or follow the removal instructions to get them deleted. The removal instructions below will also help you get rid of the undesirable home page and search provider settings. If you have checked the appropriate boxes, your Home Page must be set to search.conduit.com and the search provider to Customized Web Search. We do not recommend using these search tools because they are supported by third-party advertisements which may act as security backdoors for cyber criminals to take over your computer.

Fox News Toolbar removal is not a complicated task even if you are completely inexperienced. Regardless, as mentioned before, the search tools could be used for illegal activity, meaning that your PC could potentially be infected with additional malware. In this case you definitely should install automatic spyware detection and removal software. If you want to proceed manually (see the removal instructions below), you should also scan your PC with a reliable spyware scanner to ensure that there are no threats which you should delete.
