Nvstech Toolbar is a Conduit-based browser extension which works on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. The toolbar is available on several websites. It can be downloaded from nvstech.ourtoolbar.com, which is one of the web pages promoting Conduit Toolbars. Moreover, it can also be bundled with a legitimate program available at softpedia.com. On this website, Nvstech Toolbar is known to be attached to the setup file of Turbo C++ installer, and if you do not want to alter the settings of the browsers by mistake, read the license agreement that you are provided with once you launch the installer of any computer program.

Nvstech Toolbar can alter the settings of the browsers; more specifically, it can replace your home page and default search provider with search.conduit.com and append a toolbar below the address bar of the browser. The main button next to the search box of the toolbar opens nvstech.weebly.com, which is a blog on operating systems and programming.

Nvstech Toolbar is powered by a variety of links. They take the user to online gaming websites, social networking websites, shopping websites, and the like. The toolbar contains some typical links of Conduit toolbar, that is, an e-mail notifier, a radio player, and a button that opens a weather forecast. If you neither play online games nor tend to shop online or listen to the radio, remove Nvstech Toolbar from the PC. Do not keep the toolbar on the browsers if you are not going to use, and note that it can monitor your browsing behavior. It may record your search terms, clicks, and other non-personally identifiable information. Hence, do not delay the removel of Nvstech Toolbar.
