CyberDefender-TB Toolbar

What is CyberDefender-TB Toolbar?

CyberDefende Toolbar is a Conduit powered OurToolbar for Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox Web browsers. The toolbar collects and stores information about your web browsing and sends this information to OurToolbar so they can suggest services or provide ads via the toolbar. The toolbar will attempt to change the browser's home page and search provider settings during installation (sometimes this is an option provided to the user but is checked by default) and provides a search box and various other generic features in the toolbar. It also may send event logs and other system-related information to a server, and may automatically download and install updates without notifying the user.
