NetZero GamesBar

What is NetZero GamesBar?

NetZero GamesBar is a Visicom web browser toolbar and extension. Once installed the toolbar will display limited functionality to the end user but will manage to take control of the browser's primary search, homepage and DNS functionality in order for Visicom and its partners to monetize the benefits of the search. In most cases the NetZero GamesBar will change the homepage and search to MyStart, a paid search provider.
