Spigot is a legitimate company, which offers designing your own toolbar and increasing customers' loyalty in this way. However, if you are in the opposite side of this, you may find this toolbar as a totally annoying application, which is capable of causing unwanted activities on your computer. Mostly, people claim that Spigot Toolbar has invaded their computers without an appropriate permission asked. Yes, it's possible because this program is actively promoted using bundling. Once it does that, this program may alter various system settings and then may hijack each of your web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other ones. After that you may notice continuous Spigot redirections to unknown websites, slow downs, pop-up ads and other unwanted activities. While the most of websites that are promoted using this technique are legitimate, such activity may be quite annoying and may end up on suspicious and very questionable site. Besides, just like any other toolbar, this program may collect people's search terms, mostly visited websites, data that is entered when visiting them, etc. We do NOT recommend ignoring this because you can never know where this personally non-identifiable information can be used.
You may have already heard that some of PC users have found this program on their computers without downloading it. That's because it has been actively promoted using 'bundling'. If you want to protect yourself from that, you should know that there are hundreds of toolbars, browser add-ons, extensions, plugins and other 'optional components' that are promoted using other programs. In order to avoid them, you should use tips that are given in next paragraph. Also, you should remove Spigot Toolbar if it has appeared on your computer without your knowledge.

You can install Spigot toolbar either voluntary or not. It can be installed from the spigot.com website but it has also been reported to come in a bundle with other programs that are usually offered for free. Basically, these programs are known as freeware and shareware. If you want to avoid that, you have to start monitoring installation of the freeware. The easiest way to do that is by selecting Custom or Advanced installation option when installing freeware. In addition, you should uncheck all pre-checked checkmarks that allow installation of browser add-ons, plugins, toolbars, extensions, etc. If this program gets inside the system, it settles down on IE, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and other web browsers, and starts interrupting its victims' search sessions.
