Virgin Media Toolbar

Virgin Media Toolbar Description

Virgin Media Toolbar is an unwanted plug-in that may propagate and infiltrate into the computer system through packaged freeware and install a BHO (Browser Helper Object) on the PC. Through the use of the BHO, Virgin Media Toolbar may not need any external application as an installer to run along the Web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Virgin Media Toolbar may use the BHO to show pop-up messages and embed unwanted ads in the websites computer users visit. Virgin Media Toolbar may also reroute PC users to unreliable websites, and replace the default start page and search provider or a new tab page with a suspicious search service website to generate advertising revenue from increased web traffic and ad clicks. Virgin Media Toolbar may show numerous disturbing messages and banners, advertise sponsored commercial websites and unidentified search systems to make a profit from them.
