Spyware Profile for OpinionBar
OpinionBar is a Browser Helper Object (BHO) and runs concurrently with Internet Explorer. OpinionBar has marketed itself as a “get paid to surf” program, but it is not exactly what the description infers. Instead, if you happen to browse to a site in which OpinionBar has interest and would like to solicit your opinion, then you have the opportunity to answer questions in the view bar. Then, your opinions are gathered and pooled together with all the other surfers that have answered the survey.
It is a good idea to remove this malware from your computer with Spyzooka. It does not do anything to enhance the usability of your computer and you do not get much back for the effort put forth by participating in the surveys.
