Conduit virus is a dangerous computer program, which was involved to many discussions on the Internet. The main reason, why PC users report about this program, is its annoying activity, which is used by its owners to earn some revenue from advertising. When infected with Conduit virus, you may notice that you can barely browse the Internet because every search session is redirected to sponsored websites. In addition, it may change your start page and default search engine to Search.conduit.com or Storage.conduit.com, show continuous advertisements and simply initiate slow downs on the browser. We must say that Conduit virus is not as dangerous as rogue anti-spyware or ransomware, but it should definitely be eliminated from the system if you want to use your computer without problems.


Conduit virus is distributed using shady distribution methods. Typically, it relies on freeware and shareware when it needs to come on its target computer without being noticed. However, it may also get inside the system with a help of malware. If you want to avoid this redirect virus, you should be very careful when downloading such programs as video recording software, download managers and PDF creators. Typically, when installing freeware on your computer you should find the check box, which notifies about Conduit and uncheck it. This checkbox should appear during program's installation process, so try to pay more attention to it. If you think you are infected with Conduit virus, follow a detailed guide given below and remove this application from your computer.

My computer got infected with the Conduit virus. I purchased a new Verison cell phone and wanted the full Instruction manual since the book that came with it didnt go into much detail on its use. I was directed by Verison to a website which wasnt available but I found another that claimed to have manuals for all brands and models of cell phones. I found the model of my Verison phone and started to download what I thought was the cell phone manual. Instead I was downloading the Conduit virus.

The virus causes pop-ups to appear when you attempt to browse the internet. Windows for various websites appear, unsolicited, and hindering the use of your computer. Thats when I called AT&T. They were fully aware of the Conduit virus and removed it, mostly manually. I did not know of TABs procedure until I heard you on the radio today, Monday, March 3..

Fortunately, I have an AT&T support contract. It took almost 2 1/2 hours for AT&T technicians to remove the virus..
This virus is almost impossible to get rid of. Uninstall did not work and it also disabled system restore in windows 8. My computer tech was able to remove it with some effort. Ccleaner was unable to remove all of it as well and it got past my antivirus software like it wasnt there. My tech called it a "nasty one" Good luck!
The best way to remove the conduit virus is by removing java script from your PC, then manually remove all trace from your browser add-ons. and then run your anti-virus program also run a malware program it should clean your System. it has work for me !!! good luck.
