What is Bizzybolt?

This is an unwanted web browser extension that delivers search hijacking as well as contextual advertising within a user's web browser. The program does this by modifying the user's home and search pages in order to monetize search activities. By installing a Browser Helper Object (BHO) in Internet Explorer, the extension has the ability to monitor and track a user web browsing activities and display various banner and link-context ads in addition to its search redirection.

Once installed the software will add a number of unwanted features to the web browser including inline text and multi-site searching, comparison shopping, related search results, additional offers and coupons as well as website ratings and reviews. It does this by analyzing the content of the web pages the user is visiting as well as tracking the URLs and navigation. Additionally BizzyBolt will add features as desired after install through its 'auto-enabled updater' which runs as a Windows service. From the Terms: "BizzyBolt content includes advertisements... User info is collected and shared for ad relevance and other purposes."
