VisualBee Toolbar | Type: Adware

VisualBee Toolbar (also kown as VB Toolbar) is a potentially unwanted application, which is closely related to Search.conduit.com virus. As soon as it gets inside the system, it immediately settles down on Mozilla Firefox browser. However, it may also affect other Internet browsers, such as Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. From the first sight, it may seem that it helps you to reach YouTube, Facebook or Twitter via one click. However, this toolbar also starts actively offering the services of TVNations, MochiGames, Value Apps and other third parties. In addition, it can easily redirect you to search.conduit.com or other unwanted website according to its needs or alter your computer's settings and make Conduit your homepage and default search engine. We do not recommend leaving VisualBee Toolbar on your computer because it mostly operates as a browser hijacker. Besides, it clearly tracks its victims in order to show altered search results in the future.

HOW CAN I GET VISUALBEE TOOLBAR ON MY COMPUTER?

VisualBee Toolbar is distributed via two different methods. The first one includes user's awareness and needs him to go to its official website and download the toolbar manually. However, there are more Internet users who report that they have discovered this program on their machines our of nowhere. The secret behind this is really simple – it relies on the third party software, freeware and shareware, and comes inside the PC in a bundle with it. If you want to avoid that, you should always monitor the entire installation process and unckeck unfamiliar entries. As soon as it gets inside, it gets on Mozilla Firefox browser and starts redirecting its victims to unknown sites. Even its license agreement notifies that VisualBee Toolbar should be avoided:

Conduit, as a platform provider, provides the Publisher and other third parties with a large number of tools to enable them to create interesting and unique apps, buttons and gadgets using the Conduit platform. Some of these tools may give these third parties the ability to access, collect, store and/or share your information – both your Personally Identifiable Information and non- Personally Identifiable Information.

What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by VisualBee Toolbar:

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads
•  Redirects to unknown and suspicious websites
•  Changes in homepage and default search engine
•  Decreased speed of every Internet browser
