FLV Runner Toolbar is also known as FLV Runner Toolbar hijack, FLV Runner redirect | Type: Browser Plugins

FLV Runner Toolbar is not a simple toolbar you may run into. That's a program that is mostly categorized as 'adware' and used to deploy the most annoying search.conduit.com virus. As we have already written, Conduit browser toolbar is blamed for making unauthorized changes to user's browser settings without asking any permission. Next to its capability to add toolbars, FLV Runner Toolbar has also been reported to cause the same browser redirections and modifications of homepage settings. That's why we do NOT recommend leaving FLV Runner Toolbar on your computer. 

HOW CAN I GET FLV RUNNER TOOLBAR ON MY COMPUTER? 

Before you find FLV Runner Toolbar on your browser, you must download it. Typically, it gets inside computer together with other programs that are spread on unknown websites. It enters system as a component and, while most of the users don't pay enough attention to them, it seems that it got on it as virus, through the backdoors of the system. Of course, FLV Runner Toolbar alters some home page settings and installs itself on the browser, which  is set to http://flvrunner.ourtoolbar.com. While there are no reports that this toolbar puts the system in danger and it can't be said to be malicious, many users say that it's hard to keep it on the browser because it causes annoying browser redirections and does other things that are normal for 'adware'. In addition, sometimes it seems that it's almost impossible to remove this thing from the PC.
