Search-NewTab

What is Search-NewTab?

Search-NewTab (NewTab) is a 'Just Plug It' toolbar that utilizes the WebPick InstalleRex download manager and installer that integrates with major web browsers including IE, Chrome and Firefox. In IE for example, it installs as a random file name and plugs in as a Browser Helper Object (BHO) which as the ability to modify all HTML content within a web page. The toolbar is typically bundled with 3rd party programs in order to help monetize free (and some paid) software. During installation, the user might be given the option to modify the home and search pages, however this is often checked by default and overlooked.
