Wisdom-soft Toolbar

What is Wisdom-soft Toolbar?

Wisdom-soft Toolbar is a Conduit toolbar (OurToolbar Community) for Intenet Explorer and Firefox. The toolbar collects and stores information about your web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit so they can suggest services or provide advertising via the toolbar. Wisdom-soft Toolbar will attempt to change your home page and search provider if you are not careful during installation and provides a search box and various other generic features in the toolbar.
