Internet Helper Toolbar is a potentially unwanted application, which can collect information about users and their browsing habits. For example, it can say what sites are your favorite ones, how do they look at the moment, what they are filled with and what information has been entered on them by you. This toolbar can be attached to all possible Internet browsers, such as IE, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome as a browser add-on. However, in most of the cases it comes on its target PC in a bundle with other programs. This way of distribution is clearly malicious. Besides, it’s worth adding that this program is closely related to Search.Conduit.com, so it also tends to set this site instead of the start page and default search engine. If you have noticed these changes on your computer, you should never ignore them. While Internet Helper Toolbar is NOT as dangerous as rogue or ransomware, it may pose harm for your computer by showing altered search results. So, if you haven’t installed this program manually, you should remove Internet Helper Toolbar.

HOW CAN I GET Internet Helper Toolbar ON MY PC?

Internet Helper Toolbar can be downloaded manually from its official site. However, it can also get on your computer in a bundle with the third party software. Typically, freeware and shareware applications include such programs for monetization, so you should be very careful when downloading them on your machine. As soon as it is installed, this program initiates system’s modifications, such as the home page and default search engine. As we have mentioned earlier, ti clearly promotes unethical search engine, which is called Conduit. If you want to prevent unwanted changes on your computer, you should uninstall Internet Helper Toolbar from your computer without any delay.

What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.
