Searchqu Toolbar

What is Searchqu Toolbar?

The Searchqu Toolbar is a Bandoo powered toolbar (by Bandoo Media Inc) for Intenet Explorer and Firefox. Searchqu 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. The Bandoo Searchqu 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. Also, Searchqu Toolbar catches misspelled words and suggests a search using the correct spelling and redirects to a sponsered search result. (searchnu.com and searchqu.com are one and the same.)

About  (from Bandoo Media Inc)
