Do you know what Entrusted Toolbar is?
Entrusted Toolbar is a potentially unwanted program from Conduit family. It is a browser add-on that gets installed on your computer with your permission. However, quite often it is thought to be a browser hijacker, because it changes the home page to search.conduit.com. Nevertheless, these changes are carried out with the user’s permission, which means you need to be attentive during software installation, as to avoid unwanted services and features installed on your PC. Remove Entrusted Toolbar from your computer right now and prevent possible malware infections.
If you take a look at the official website for Entrusted Toolbar, you would see that entrusted.ourtoolbar.com differs nothing from the pages for other Conduit Ltd. products – VisualBee Toolbar, Freecorder Toolbar, Eazel Toolbar and so on. All these browser plugins are called differently, but they all are compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer web browsers, and they come with additional software applications you are not advised to install. For example, most of the time, Entrusted Toolbar and other Conduit products offer you to install TuneUp Utilities 2013. It is a computer optimization program that is supposed to tell you whether you have any serious errors in your system. Unfortunately, TuneUp Utilities 2013 is known to have scareware features as well, which means that it scares you into thinking that sometimes is terribly wrong in order to make profit out of you.
