What is sweetim Toolbar?

SweetIM Toolbar for Internet Explorer is a browser add-on which adds various shortcuts such as games,deal pages etc. to your browsers for easy access. This toolbar also changes your homepage to home.sweetim.com While some people may find SweetIM toolbar useful, this browser add-on can be categorized as an unwanted application. The homepage that is set to default by this toolbar is enhanced by deceptive ads which redirects PC users to survey pages. The toolbar is typically bundled with the free Sweet Intant Messenger program as an option during installation and does not necessarily get uninstalled when Intant Messenger is removed from the user's PC and must be removed manually. Additionally, if the home page and search settings were modified by this toolbar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user.
