Sweetdreams-49

If you think that Sweetdreams-49 might improve your overall browsing experience then better think again. The official website for this plugin at sweetdreams49.ourtoolbar.com says that Search the Web search box that comes with Sweetdreams-49 provides you with a wide choice of useful search engines, and you can add a number of useful apps to your browser, but the overall advantages of this application do not outweigh possible security risks. Therefore, if you did not install Sweetdreams-49 intentionally, remove the plugin from your system right now, because in time this plugin could be responsible for a number of malware infections.

If you are wondering where Sweetdreams-49 come from, its origins are more than obvious. This plugin is created by Conduit Ltd which makes it directly related to VisualBee Toolbar, WiseConvert Toolbar, Freecorder Toolbar and a whole number of other similar applications that in the end are all the same. The only thing that is different is the name and perhaps a few additional functions. Apart from that all the Conduit toolbars are basically identical and they are compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers.

A lot of users consider Sweetdreams-49 to be a browser hijacker, because it changes default home page and search engine to search.conduit.com. However, this modification takes place only if you allow it. This is not a browser hijacker, because Sweetdreams-49 prompts you about the oncoming changes, and you are the one who allows the home page and the search engine to be changed. Sadly, some users go through the installation process automatically without even reading what the installation wizard has to say.

The main problem with Sweetdreams-49 is that it may be related to malware. It is not a computer infection itself, but the search engine and the toolbar could be exploited for malware distribution, and therefore, it is wise to remove Sweetdreams-49 from your PC as soon as possible.
