What is VirtualDJ Toolbar?

VirtualDJ Toolbar is an Ask.com powered toolbar. The Ask Toolbar is a web-browser add-on that can appear as an extra bar added to the browser's window and/or menu. It is often installed (sometimes without warning) during the installation of other software. Ask.com has entered into partnerships with some software security vendors, whereby they are paid to distribute the toolbar alongside their software. When you use the toolbar to submit a query, the toolbar forwards such query information to Ask servers. Ask.com uses this information to process your web search requests and to return a search results page to you.
