Bitlord 1.2 Toolbar

What is Bitlord Toolbar?

Bitlord 1.2 Toolbar is a Conduit powered search toolbar and Browser helper Object (for IE) that delivers contextual based advertising to the web browser. In addition it will modify the user's browser home and search pages as well as 'New Tab' pages to push advertising and search.

Overview

The most common release is 6.8.5.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named tbBit2.dll. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. It also bundles additional software in the form of the Conduit Engine, which installs a potentially unwanted toolbar, and makes homepage and default search engine changes to a user's web browser. The setup package generally installs about 16 files and is usually about 12.5 MB (13,105,778 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Integrates into the web browser
  • This toolbar is distributed via Conduit (potentially unwanted)
  • Known to reinstall itself
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
