FreeMake Toolbar

What is FreeMake Toolbar?

FreeMake Toolbar is an Community Toolbar by Conduit that runs in 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. The toolbar is typically bundled with the free FreeMake program as an option during installation and does not necessarily get uninstalled when FreeMake is removed from the user's PC and must be removed manually. If the home page and search settings were modified by this toolbar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user.
