ScreensaverGift Toolbar

What is ScreensaverGift Toolbar?

Installs a Conduit toolbar in your Web browser that collects and stores information about your web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit so they can suggest services or provide ads via the toolbar. The toolbar is typically bundled with the free 4shared program as an option during installation and does not necessarily get uninstalled when the 4shared 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.
