Spigot is a legitimate company, which offers for other companies to design their own toolbars in order to increase their customers' loyalty. However, many people on the Internet have reported about redirections after installing Spigot toolbar on their computers. While most of the pages, people are redirected to, are legitimate, such activity can be quite annoying. Besides, some of the users haven't even installed it by themselves and claim that it has just come in with some other programs. It becomes obvious that Spigot creators not only try to promote their toolbars, but they also seek to earn some money by making people visit specific domains against after changing search providers on computers..

HOW CAN I GET SPIGOT TOOLBAR ON MY COMPUTER?

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. Once it gets there, it settles down on IE and Google Chrome browsers and starts interrupting users' search sessions. While we don't say that Spigot Toolbar is malicious or can give you virus, it uses quite unfair methods on user's computer after being installed. It must be added that it is related to Widgi Toolbar, which has also been included into our data base as potentially unwanted program.

HOW CAN I UNINSTALL SPIGOT TOOLBAR?

Click on your Windows Start button -> Click "Control Panel" -> Click "Add or Remove Programs" or "Uninstall a program" -> From the dialog box that appears, choose the Spigot Toolbar and click "Uninstall" to remove it.
