OneToolbar Spyware Profile

OneToolbar is a spyware program first discovered on November 9 of 2006.  It professes to be a multipurpose browser enhancing toolbar.  It professes to deliver world news, translate web pages, and get full information about the pages you surf.  It also says that it blocks pop-up ads.  There’s much more to this program than that, though.

According to the licensing agreement on their site, “You also grant onetoolbar.com permission to collect and store information of your Internet usage habit, including but not limited to information about every web page you view with the full Uniform Resource Locators, and the content of web page.”  In other words, you let them spy on what you’re doing in exchange for using their toolbar.

Besides admittedly being spyware, OneToolbar has some other irritating features.  It sets your home page, www.google.com, and www.yahoo.com to www.swoople.com, which is their search engine.  It also redirects any error pages to Swoople.  It is a weak search engine, and limited to OneToolbar’s affiliate pages.

The trouble you get with OneToolbar isn’t worth any supposed benefit you get from having it.  It can slow down your browser, limits the pages you can browse and it monitors your browsing history.  You’re better off without it, and ZookaWare PC Cleaner will make that happen for you.
