uTorrentControl Toolbar

What is uTorrentControl Toolbar?

uTorrent Control Toolbar is a 'Community Toolbar' from Conduit, which integrates with major web browsers including Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. The toolbar is an ad-supported program that is designed to display advertisements within the program itself, modify the browser's home page and search settings in order to capture web search traffic as well as collect and aggregate usage information and statistics. The toolbar is typically bundled with 3rd party developer programs in order to help monetize free (and some paid) software. During installation, the user might be given the option to modify the home and search pages, however this is often checked by default and overlooked. Should the software be removed from the user's PC, the settings will need to be manually reverted back (see details below). The company, based on the EULA, will automatically download and install remote updates as well as collect and store details about the user's web browsing activities and store it locally on the PC in order to interact with the toolbar application to suggest additional services or provide more targeted advertising. "By Using a Conduit Software you may enable Conduit to access, use and collect a variety of information, both personal and non-personal, regarding your Internet Browser, your browsing habits, and information about your computer." - from the license agreement.

Thank you for this information. I have deleted the extension from Chrome and uninstalled the program in Windows 7. Both this information and the comment from Stanley89 were helpful.

The toolbar is an unwanted adware program, despite the users consented to install it. It is bundled with the free version of the uTorrent software. I would recommend uninstalling the toolbar and keeping uTorrent as the bar is not required in order to run.
