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.
