The Crawler Toolbar raises the age old question about whether some good properties make up for the bad ones in an application. Crawler Toolbar offers some helpful functions to users who make use of Internet Explorer, but it also makes use of some dubious practices.
The question is, does Crawler Toolbar’s inherent popup blocker and additional search functions and links disqualify the fact that it changes users’ browser settings and even stays active in the background? The answer to this may vary from user to user with differing views on privacy and security. An important aspect of Crawler Toolbar’s functionality is that it is programmed to route all its web searches through portal.crawler.com, an Ad supported site.
If you do decide that its good points do not trump the bad ones and would like to remove Crawler Toolbar, then read on. It should not be difficult to delete Crawler Toolbar, as part of its appeal lies in its manual installation. Making use of a good antispyware tool should get rid of Crawler Toolbar without any problems and the minimal of fuss.
