What is DVDVideoSoftTB Toolbar?

The DVDVideoSoftTB Toolbar for Intenet Explorer and Firefox is a Conduit OurToolbar Community smartbar. The Toolbar installs into your Internet browser and allows you to search the Internet with Community Toolbar that changes and redircts all of your search results as well as DNS errors, and modifies your home page.

About  (from DVDVideoSoft)

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 common release is 6.3.3.3, with over 20% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. 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 primary executable is named DVDVideoSoftTBToolbarHelper.exe. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. 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 setup package generally installs about 19 files and is usually about 9.14 MB (9,588,844 bytes).
