Softtunes Search and Toolbar

It may seem like a good idea to install Softtunes Search and Toolbar at first; however, it is most likely that you will want to remove this suspicious browser application right away. The questionable toolbar is highly accessible because it can be installed onto Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers on Windows operating systems. Softtunes.ourtoolbar.com is the official download page of the application, and here you can find the link to the Privacy Policy document. We strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with the privacy policies of any software you wish to download onto the PC. According to the information found at softtunes.ourtoolbar.com/privacy, the toolbar belongs to Trovi Ltd., when in fact it is Conduit Ltd. This is only the first suspicious warning signaling that you should remove Softtunes Search and Toolbar from the PC.

As soon as you click the download button in order to acquire the Softtunes Search and Toolbar, you will be introduced to a setup offering you to install Trovi search tools. If you accept the offer, as soon as the toolbar is installed you will discover search.conduit.com set as the Home Page and Softtunes Customized Web Search as the default home page. Even though it is indicated that these search tools are enhanced by Google, we do not recommend trusting them. As it has been discovered, you may be presented with sponsored search results routing you to other search engines, online shopping sites, or other unreliable sources. As you may have noticed yourself, search.conduit.com is also represented via the toolbar which also provides links to amazon.com, facebook.com, twitter.com and smileyswelove.com. The toolbar also promotes Bejeweled, Calendar+ and PriceGong applications. Other Conduit toolbars, including Freshy Toolbar, Bitlord Toolbar and Connect Toolbar, have been discovered to promote Conduit search tools and third party services as well. They could also offer you to install third party software, and this is something we do not recommend.

You should have no hesitations about getting Softtunes Search and Toolbar deleted from the browsers. The suspicious conduit search tools can provide you with unreliable search results and display suspicious online advertisements. The toolbar is not greatly beneficial either. Therefore, all you have to decide upon right now is how you want to remove Softtunes Search and Toolbar. You can follow the manual removal guides presented below or you can install automatic malware detection and removal software to get rid of the undesirable software for you. Note that if you choose the latter option, and this is what we recommend, you will still need to delete the undesirable search tools manually.
