Advertbar is a Serious Threat to Your Computer
Advertbar is a toolbar that has several other malicious programs packed with it. It can be installed from very sources on the Internet or downloaded onto your computer through a security exploit or a Trojan.
Symptoms of Advertbar include pop-up ads that include characters from popular movies, changes in browser settings, and a slower computer. Advertbar has been known to monitor your browsing activities and connect to third party servers to share the information it has gathered.
It is recommended that you remove Advertbar as soon as you can. In order to manually remove it from your computer you must remove these logs from your computer’s registry:
You must also remove the following files:
advertbar.lnk in Desktop\
