What does Internet Helper Toolbar do?
If you are a savvy computer user, you may know that the products of Conduit are very often detected as potentially unwanted. The fact that Internet Helper Toolbar is owned by Conduit means that you will have to use the search engine which is comes along with the toolbar. If you do not read the information provided by the installer, and tick or un-tick specific boxes, the home page and the search engine of the browsers can be changed to search.conduit.com. You will find that the search provider is presented as Internet helper Customized Web Search. We recommend that you remove the toolbar as the search engine and the startup page usually displays advertisements that may have no connect to your earlier search queries.
As to the very toolbar, it bears a few links or buttons. It contains a search box, a button that allows you to see highlighted keywords on the search result page, and a home button. Once installed, the toolbar displays a box offering to add some additional buttons or links. For instance, you can add an online radio player, a button that can show weather forecasts, and an inbuilt E-mail Notifier.
If you do now want to be monitored by Internet Helper Toolbar, which is likely to occur, you should remove it from the computer. Note that some other program can be installed alongside the toolbar. For instance, if you download Internet Helper Toolbar from ourtoolbar.com, you are given two offers for additional applications, which are Nitro PDF Reader and Tune Utilities 2013, which are quite common as regards bundled downloads.
