What is Media Plus Toolbar?

Media Plus Toolbar is a Conduit Community toolbar for various web browsers. The toolbar collects information about a user's web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit so they can suggest services or provide advertising. During installation it may change the web browser's home page and search page and if uninstalled will need to be manually changed back. It may also automatically download and install updates without notifying the user. From the OurToolbar EULA: "The Application may also collect and store information about your web browsing locally on your device. This locally saved information may interact with the Application and send us information about your web browsing so we can suggest services or provide you ads that may be more relevant to you."
