Suddenlink is the company, which is known for its high-speed internet, phone and television services. However, many PC users have started to discuss about its unwanted redirections and have started to call it as virus. In reality, this is a BHO (Browser Helper Object), which is classically used for collecting information about user’s browsing habits. This BHO is installed on the Suddenlink Toolbar, which includes a Suddenlink search bar provided through Google. You may think that it has infiltrated your PC out of nowhere, however, it is usually attached to the freeware and you must have failed to read the components’ list when installing one of such programs. According to Suddenlink representatives, user’s homepage can truly be replaced to home.suddenlink.net. However, they only do that if user has chosen this by himself. They claim that the toolbar redirects only when you type in an invalid domain name into an address bar. In fact, they say the truth, all this activity is legitimate.

WHY Suddenlink Toolbar is on my computer?

Just like many toolbars that are available on the Internet, Suddenlink Toolbar can be unnoticeably downloaded with free codecs, games, software updates, virus scanners and similar freeware and shareware. Please, read the License Agreemnent and Components' list to check the programs that will be downloaded and installed together with freeware if you want to avoid such toolbars. However, we must say that Suddenlink Toolbar is not a virus, but a potentially unwanted application.

HOW CAN I REMOVE Suddenlink Toolbar?

You can remove Suddenlink Toolbar through the browser settings. However, you should also make sure you remove Suddenlink Toolbar Add-on, its Extension, return your normal Home Page, fix the Provided Search Engine and DNS Settings. Besides, we recommend running a full system scan with anti-malware program to make sure you are safe from infected files.

Unfortunately, the page referenced in the comment does not address the current practice of Suddenlink adding scripts to your computer to redirect your homepage to a SuddenLink landing page. This situation happened to me while I was visiting someone and they had not paid their bill. It redirected my home page to their site seeking payment. First, it is NOT my account, so I suspect this may have been a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in that it disclosed another indivduals financial situation. Second, the script it added now moved my web page to the landing page regardless of whether I am using their service or not. I find the act of ADDING script to my computer as piracy .. simple ... and I called them to tell them so. Their response ... tough ... we can redirect anytime we want per our service agreement. When I told them the situation and a need to know how to remove the script as I am not their customer, they would not help me. I think a call to one of my law school colleagues may be in order.

Unethical at most ... well see more when I talk with my friend who is an expert on intellectual property and the internet.
