  • Strange toolbar installed without Your permission

Alot Toolbar

Alot Toolbar is an adware program, which is classified as partially malicious browser add-on. It pretends to be a useful search-related tool, which can give you an instant access to search results about your favorite topic, but at the same time, having stuck to your browser, Alot Toolbar generates a mass of undesirable advertisements popping up on your screen. This add-on also changes your homepage.

With this it is possible to infer that Alot Toolbar is able to commit other bad things as well. For example, it can redirect you to websites of malicious content, where you will be exposed to a risk of being infected by a dangerous computer threat. If its not for the websites, then you will be flooded with advertisements, which will urge you to visit the sites. So having Alot Toolbar installed can lead you to various other infections, which at the very end can leave you penniless with permanently damaged computer.

Therefore you should not believe that it is a friendly search engine toolbar application. Alot Toolbar is there only to reap profits when you browse the Internet. It meddles with your browsing habits, because it wants to increase traffic to certain websites. The hardest thing about Alot Toolbar is that it is very hard to remove from your computer. Manual removal is recommended only if you are an IT professional. It is better to choose an automatic malware removal program, which lists Alot Toolbar as a malicious application, and then remove Alot Toolbar automatically.

    The fuzzy grey loophole in the law that lets them get away with doing this needs closing urgentley, and then welding over with 6 inch armour plating.

    This site doesn't distribute the toolbar, you ***** idiots. It contains information designed to help advanced users remove it.

    The sad part is that you people had to scroll past a block that clearly states that this site isn't affiliated with the creators of the adware to post your drivel.

    Seriously, alot is malware. I tried to get rid of it several times already. It infected the computer by using an Open-Source program as a trojan. Later, it redirected a search to trick a user into entering sensitive information on a website that falsely pretended to be a state government website. Please, police, FBI, and others, look into the alot toolbar.

    i only wanted lyrics to a song and then i end up with this crappy toolbar that interupts me just as i go onto my website

  12. Eoin Dec 21, 2010

    I work for a broadband company and help loads of people uninstall this toolbar. The directions on this page are precise and work 99% of the time. If you cant remove it then you have various other toolbars installed that may need to be removed first.
    Tbh the problem is not the toolbar but what sits between chair and screen rofl!
