Overview

The most common release is 10.0, with over 1% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named 8hBar.dll. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 58 files and is usually about 8.56 MB (8,980,549 bytes).
