What is Search-Results Toolbar?

The Search-Results Toolbar by APN (Ask Partner Network, part of IAC Search & Media, Inc) is an advertising supported toolbar for Internet Explorer and Firefox (a web browser extension) that is typically installed via a software bundler. The toolbar collects and stores information about your web browsing habits and sends this information to Search-results.com so they can suggest services or provide advertising via the toolbar. Search-Results Toolbar will attempt to change your home page and search provider to Search-results.com if you are not careful during installation and provides a search box and various other generic features in the toolbar.

The toolbar is typically bundled with various 3rd party software via a revenue share including products like Koyote-Lab's Free Video Converter, Bandoo Media's iLivid and iMesh to name a few.
