What is vGrabber?

Some versions of vGrabber include a branded version of the Conduit Toolbar, which is a web browser extenstion that delivers search based advertising and results. During installation the user is presented with the option to install the toolbar. Once accepted, the packaged executable, ConduitInstaller.exe, will install the necessary components for the Conduit Toolbar to be added to the user's web browser (the home page and search pages will be modified in many cases).


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named VgrabberToolbarHelper.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 19 files and is usually about 30.8 MB (32,297,752 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Known to include offers within the setup
  • May modify the web browser's home page
