There are hundreds of unreliable search engines and search.conduit.com is one of them. This suspicious search tool is often considered to be part of a dangerous browser hijacker; however, in reality it is just another program that has been designed to promote third party websites, products and services. As research has revealed, this particular search engine has been developed by Conduit who employ web cookies to collect information related to your virtual habits and experiences. Is this dangerous? Our researchers indicate that whilst data collection is not extremely dangerous you still need to be cautious about cookies, BHO, web beacons and other tools which are installed onto your personal computer and web browsers. If you have no clue why the search engine has been set as your default search provider or home page, and you wish to remove search.conduit.com from the browsers – continue reading this carefully researched report.

Even though in some cases search.conduit.com could be set as your Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari home page without your knowledge, it is more likely that you will be asked to confirm the installation of this search tool. The program comes bundled together with Conduit toolbars and browser plugins. The most recent of them are Trustworthy Toolbar, KeyBar Toolbar, Freecause Toolbar and OurWorld Toolbar. Even though at first it may seem as if these browser plugins are highly beneficial, you should not trust them because Conduit have created them just to promote the suspicious search.conduit.com and the Customized Web Search. Note that you may discover other programs bundled together with the toolbars and the search applications, including TuneUp Utilities 2013 or Registry Mechanic. These should be removed as well.

Whether you have chosen search.conduit.com to greet you every time you launch your browsers or if the tool appears to have been installed without your knowledge, we recommend that you delete it from your PC. Even though you may be able to remove search.conduit.com manually, you should think carefully about reinforcing your Windows system with authentic security software. For example, a reliable tool SpyHunter can ensure full-time Windows protection and it can delete malware. We strongly recommend that you install this application to delete undesirable programs or PC infections and shield virtual security against schemers. To delete search.conduit.com manually follow the guides below.
