Sweetdreams-49 is yet another toolbar that is hard to call useful. It is not a computer malware application per se, but it can easily be categorized as a potentially unwanted program. This browser plugin is developed by Conduit Ltd. As such, it belongs to a huge group of browser extensions that have been confusing users for quite some time now. It would seem that Sweetdreams-49 improves your browsing experience, but the truth is that the plugin exposes you to possible malware infections. Therefore, if you have not installed the plugin willingly, you should remove Sweetdreams-49 from your computer right now.
The plugin is not the only thing that gets installed onto your computer when you download and run the installation file. Sweetdreams-49 also comes with TuneUp Utilities 2013 that is a computer optimization program. Unfortunately, this application cannot live up to its promises, and you should not install it on your PC, if you want to avoid various security risks. Fortunately, you can choose whether you want TuneUp Utilities 2013 to be installed or not. The same applies to Sweetdreams-49 as well. Whether you download it from the official website at sweetdreams49.ourtoolbar.com or a third party website, you still have a choice – Sweetdreams-49 does not invade your computer without your permission.
Unfortunately, a number of users go through the installation process blindly and they end up not only with the Sweetdreams-49 toolbar installed on your browsers.

Also, in case of exploitation, Sweetdreams-49 could be used as a malware distributor. Therefore, in order to protect your computer and yourself from possible harm, you need to remove Sweetdreams-49 immediately. Luckily, manual removal is not complicated at all. Simply follow the instructions below.
