Montera Toolbar is a malicious application, which can also be categorized as adware. This program is developed by the same company as Claro Search Toolbar, which is known as Montera Technologies LTD. The main reason, why our security experts have started to include programs of this company to 2spyware data base is really simple – it clearly applies malicious methods when trying to distribute its programs. So, just like those programs that have already mentioned on our website, Montera Toolbar can get inside its target PC system in a bundle with other software without any permission asked. Besides, as soon as it settles down, it modifies computer's settings and starts appearing on every web browser, which is installed on the PC. Please, keep in mind that Montera Toolbar may be set to track your browsing habits, show forged search results and cause annoying redirections to malicious websites. If yu haven't installed it on your PC manually, you should remove Montera Toolbar as soon as possible.
