VAF toolbar (also known as VAF Music Toolbar) is another program, which can be called as adware. The main reason, why we have decided to include this app to our data base, is its unfair distribution method, which is based on the third party software. Besides, as soon as this program infiltrates the PC, it modifies some of system's parameters and changes the start page, new tab page and default search engine. As a result, user starts suffering from continuous redirections to VAF search page or search.conduit.com. which is already known for our security experts. Please, beware that such search engines are used only for showing forged search results and seek to make users enter related websites. If you haven't installed this program with your consent, you should remove VAF Toolbar from your computer.

HOW CAN I GET VAF TOOLBAR ON MY PC?

VAF toolbar can be downloaded from its official website. However, there is also another method, which is used for its distribution. It is based on the third party software, which is usually filled with such 'components' for monetization purpose. If you want to prevent VAF Toolbar's infiltration, remove its entries that show up during installation process of the software. When inside and active, this program starts system's modifications and tries to affect all Internet browsers that are used by the user. However, it especially likes to affect Mozilla Firefox browser. If want to get rid of it and you can't find a way for that, follow the guide below and remove VAF Toolbar from your computer.
