It has been found that both Registry Mechanic and TuneUp Utilities are not the programs you should run on the system; however, these applications could be installed onto the PC automatically. If you do not pay attention to the presented installation setup and do not un-check the boxes confirming that you want to install the programs, they will be activated. In most cases Conduit search tools have to be chosen for installation; however, if your home page has been changed to search.conduit.com without your personal consent, you can remove it.
