uTorrentControl2 Toolbar

What is uTorrentControl2 Toolbar?

This toolbar is typiclaly bundled with the installation of some uTorrent versions. The toolbar is a Conduit toolbar (OurToolbar Community) for Intenet Explorer and Firefox. The toolbar 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. uTorrentControl2 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. The toolbar is typically bundled with the free uTorrent program as an option during installation and does not necessarily get uninstalled when uTorrent is removed from the user's PC and must be removed manually. If the home page and search settings were modified by this toolbar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user.
