What is GS-Enabler?

SK.Enhancer is a protection mechanism that is designed to protect bundled software of potentially unwanted programs distributed through bundles. Also know as SProtector, SK.Enhancer is typically installed with adware such as toolbars and its primary purpose is to prevent a web browser's home page or search engine from being modified to something other than what the adware has set it to. According to multiple anti-virus products this software is generally defined as either an unwanted application or a trojan.
