What is Findwide Toolbar?

This is a potentially unwanted web browser toolbar that delivers ads to the user's web browser including coupons, deals, or special offers from select merchants and stores. "When you visit a website of a merchant or affiliate store that participates in the coupon program, FindWide Deals is designed to recognize the website to determine whether there are coupons, deals, or special offers available. If there are applicable coupons, deals, or special offers available that FindWide Deals recognizes, FindWide Deals will display an alert with the coupons."

From the EULA: "By accessing the Sites and downloading the Software, you hereby grant the Company permission to display promotional information, advertisements, and offers for third-party products, offers or services (collectively “Advertisements”) from Company’s advertising partners (collectively “Partners”). The Advertisements may include, without limitation, content, offers for products or services, data, links, articles, graphic or video messages, text, software, music, sound, graphics or other materials or services. The timing, frequency, placement, and extent of the Advertisements changes are determined in Company’s sole discretion."
