Feather Reference Toolbar

What is Feather Reference Toolbar?

Feather Reference Toolbar is a potentially unwanted web browser extension that is ad-supported and will display various popup and banner ads as well as modify the user's web browser search and home page settings. This plugin will update Internet Explorer (as a BHO), Chrome (as an extension) and Firefox (as an add-in). In some cases, the program will monitor a user's behavior (which the user agreed to if they did not read the full EULA) and will inject rival advertisements over existing one or just inject new ones all together. This toolbar is typically bundled by third party download managers/installers or through questionable online ads.


It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. The main program executable is ToolbarUpdaterService.exe. The software installer includes 5 files and is usually about 1.14 MB (1,195,517 bytes). ToolbarUpdaterService.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
