Although it might actually be a handy browser add-on that helps downloading and converting media from Youtube and similar online sources, you are advised to delete DVDVIdeoSoft Toolbar because it is rated as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program). It is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer, and may change their homepage and search engine default values to search.conduit.com. On its turn, this may result in the forced display of third party commercial ads that can potentially lure you into visiting corrupted websites or downloading malicious software. The extension is also reported to gain access to the data stored on your PC and to collect it, thus compromising your privacy.
Matter-of-factly, DVDVideoSoft Ltd. is a legitimate software developer which offers its products for direct download on its official homepage, dvdvideosoft.com. Therefore, even if you are surprised to see the toolbar when your launch one of your browsers, you shouldn’t be afraid of having being infected with malware (which is often the case with halfway licit freeware bundles that come from file-sharing and torrent communities). It would only mean that while installing another free application by the same company (e.g. disc burner, video converter, or 3D photo maker), you have forgotten to deselect its predetermined bonus features.
Although it is not a browser hijacker, we advise you to get rid of DVDVideoSoft Toolbar because it can still interfere with your online work, expose you to security threats, lower the performance of your system, and compromise the safety of your personal information. If – willingly or unknowingly – you have chosen the full installation of the browser extension, it will change the default homepage and search engine settings of your Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer to search.conduit.com (which is a dubious search provider that is associated with an annoying browser hijacker). Additionally, it will display third party commercial advertisements that can lead you to maliciously designed or corrupted websites and dangerous software downloads. Ads such as pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, interstitials and the like also impede surfing the Web because in order to continue one often needs to click through them and shut them off. Another important reason to remove DVDVideoSoft Toolbar is that it also can read and save the information you input during your browsing sessions or simply store on your computer.
If you want to remove DVDVideoSoft Toolbar by hand, you can use the Remove Programs features that comes along with your Windows. In order to initiate it, please navigate to the Control Panel. Below, you will find our detailed guide which gives exact instructions on how to proceed. Although you can delete DVDVideoSoft Toolbar manually, we have to remind you that this method does not ultimately guarantee the safety of your computer and the information that is stored on it. If the extension has managed to aid additional threats (by displaying ads that link to malicious websites) into landing on your PC, only a reliable anti-virus software can help you detect and neutralize them. Therefore it is greatly advisable that you obtain a trustworthy AV tool and conduct system scans on a regular basis.
