What is findr Toolbar for IE?

findr Toolbar for IE is a Conduit distributed toolbar built on the community toolbar platform which provides potentially unwanted web browser integration. This browser extension's primary purpose is to take control of the user's search functionality in order to generate a revenue share for the publisher and Conduit.
