What is WiseConvert Toolbar?

Installs a Conduit toolbar in your Web browser that collects and stores information about your web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit so they can suggest services or provide ads via the toolbar.

About  (from WiseConvert)

WiseConvert is a free tool that lets you convert files easily and quickly right from your browser — it's that easy! As an optional part of the installation you can also get the official DVDVideoSoft Community Toolbar for Windows Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome (powered by Conduit).

Overview

The most used version is 6.9.0.16, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is tbWise.dll. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. It also bundles additional software in the form of the Conduit Engine, which installs a potentially unwanted toolbar, and makes homepage and default search engine changes to a user's web browser. The software installer includes 18 files and is usually about 4.85 MB (5,084,210 bytes).
