Conduit Search is an incredibly annoying adware program that is designed to hijack your search engine, and make unwanted changes to your web browser. Once Conduit Search is installed, it will change your homepage to search.conduit.com and will force your browser to use the Conduit Search instead of your normal search engine. Conduit Search is also known to install a third party toolbar that displays ads when viewing search results. Although Conduit Search is not actually a virus, it’s usually unwanted and bothersome. Generally, Conduit Search is installed with other applications. It’s important to look closely at any installations to ensure they aren’t installing additional junk software on your computer.
Our American Based Experts can remove Conduit Search for you. Call (866) 240-9755 or chat.
