Freecorder Toolbar - How to remove?
Freecorder toolbar also known as Applian freecorder or Freecorder Deal Finder is an application that enables you to convert and download videos from YouTube and other websites. It is developed and published by Applian Technologies Inc. The program is free of charge and the company earns money from advertisements it causes to be displayed. When one installs freecorder she also adds Freecorder Deal Finder and Search Helper. It is brought by Superfish and uses visual search technology to let you instantly compare prices or find similar items on almost any product sold online.
Freecorder might come bundled with third party software such as toolbars, add-ons and extentions. Subsequently those having it might suffer from various advertisements and redirections to unwanted websites. Computer’s settings such as home page, default search engine and new tab page might be changed without a user’s consent. Freecorder is known to be related to Text Enhance , Tidy Network, Conduit Search, and other unwanted applications. Those having it also suffer from spam emails and asking to participate in surveys.
It is recommended to uninstall Freecorder and any files related to it, especially if you did not download it intentionally or were not aware of all the aspects related to having it.
