What is VisualBee?
VisualBee Toolbar (also known as VB Toolbar) is a potentially unwanted application, which is closely related to Search.conduit.com virus, Conduit virus and other browser hijackers. As soon as it gets inside the system, it immediately hijacks Mozilla Firefox. However, it seems that you shouldn't be very relaxed if you don't have this browser because 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 may also start actively offering you such services as TVNations, MochiGames, Value Apps and other third party services. No matter that it is said that these services can improve one's browsing activity, you should think twice before installing them. In most of the cases, such programs cause redirects to unknown websites, slow downs, pop-up ads and other unwanted activities. In addition, VisualBee may try to redirect you to search.conduit.com or other unwanted websites that are selected according to its developers' needs. If you have just discovered that your homepage and default search engine were altered and now you are forced to use Conduit, it means that this browser hijacker is already hiding in your computer. We do not recommend leaving VisualBee Toolbar on it because it may start tracking you and may collect various data about your browsing habits. Besides, it may try to show altered search results in the future and cause other issues. If you want to avoid them, you should waste no time and download SpyHunter or other reputable anti-spyware that will show you what a real virus is.

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.
