Overview

The most common release is 6.10.2.5, 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 primary executable is named FileConverter_1.2ToolbarHelper.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week 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 4.86 MB (5,092,351 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Integrates into the web browser
  • Built on and distributed using the Conduit toolbar
  • Typically distributed through a pay-per-install bundle
  • May modify the web browser's home page
  • The wisdom of the experts agree, if you don't use it you should remove it!
