Conduit Search is an adware program, which upon installation may change the settings of your browser. It is most likely to set search.conduit.com as the default search engine and homepage. Conduit Search is known to manipulate the search results, suggesting sponsored websites that may have nothing to do with the actual search request. The adware comes bundled with various versions of the Conduit Community Toolbar. The installation of the application is optional, and the user should carefully consider if this tool is suitable or reliable enough for his searching needs.

How Does the Conduit Search Adware End Up on the User’s Computer?

Adware.Conduit is a web search engine that provides extensions of the search results through its own toolbar. The installation of Conduit is not automatic, which means, the user initiates it personally. Conduit Search can be downloaded together with any of the toolbars for the Conduit platform like:

  • IQmango Toolbar
  • Guffins Toolbar
  • ConnectSo Toolbar
  • Quizulous Toolbar

Conduit adware is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Once installed, Conduit toolbar may perform several unwanted actions. Your search engine and home page will most likely be changed to search.conduit.com. This toolbar is known to alter search results, in order to serve third parties distributing online advertisements. Conduit may collect information about your browsing actions and habits and provide third-party advertisers with it. Along with the manipulated search results, Conduit reportedly displays various pop-up and in-text advertisements. Conduit Search may also set search.conduit.com as your home page.

Conduit Search – A Safe Removal is Always an Option

Although the application itself does not put the user’s computer at risk, it might lead to more serious threats. Adware often gathers information from the user’s browsing history and other browsing details. This information may be transferred to interested parties and used for marketing purposes. That is why our PC experts recommend the removal of Conduit toolbar through a reliable anti-malware program and the consideration of a more secure search engine. It is always useful to check if further applications or programs are being installed along with the ones that have been chosen. A manual installation approach minimizes the risk of potentially unwanted software landing unnoticed on the user’s PC.
