SpeedBit Toolbar

What is SpeedBit Toolbar?

SpeedBit Toolbar is a 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 automatically download and install updates without notifying the user. This is a PPI (pay per install) toolbar. For each install and for every month the user whose web browser this is installed into remains installed, the publisher gets paid by Conduit a few cents depending on the country of install. The toolbar is typically bundled with the free DAP program as an option during installation and does not necessarily get uninstalled when DAP is removed from the user's PC and must be removed manually. Additionally, if the home page and search settings were modified by this toolbar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user.

Speedbit toolbar continues to exist even though I have removed the program manually using Control Panel. I am going to go in and erase it from the hard drive
