What is EazelBar?

EazelBar is a web browser plugin for Intenet Explorer and Firefox. The toolbar collects and stores information about your web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit so they can suggest services or provide advertising via the toolbar. It will attempt to change your home page and search provider to search.eazel.com if you are not careful during installation and provides a search box and various other generic features. If the home page and search settings were modified by EazelBar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user if the user decides to uninstall the toolbar.
