FYTDL DB Toolbar

What is FYTDL DB Toolbar?

FYTDL DB Toolbar is a Community Toolbar by Conduit that runs in IE, Chrome and Firefox Web browsers. The toolbar collects and stores information about your web browsing and sends this information to OurToolbar so they can suggest services or provide ads via the toolbar. The toolbar will attempt to change the browser's home page and search provider settings during installation (sometimes this is an option provided to the user but is checked by default) and provides a search box and various other generic features in the toolbar. It also may send event logs and other system-related information to a server, and may automatically download and install updates without notifying the user.


The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named tbcore3.dll. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 11 files and is usually about 4.32 MB (4,527,789 bytes). The installed file update.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
