Starware.Toolbar Spyware Profile

Starware.Toolbar is a spyware program disguised as a toolbar add-on for your browser.  It was first discovered on January 26 of 2006.  It is distributed by the Starware company and is powered by the web server, starware.com.

Starware.Toolbar is installed on your computer either manually or as part of an ad-supported freeware bundle.  Starware.com still exists as a web page, and it offers Starware.Toolbar as a free download.  It hijacks your browser by resetting your home page to starware.com, and all search errors will direct there as well.  It also delivers pop-up ads.

It also has spyware capabilities.  It is also a data miner, which monitors your browsing history, searches through your temporary files and otherwise collects data to send to its server at starware.com.  Supposedly, the idea is to deliver targeted advertising.

The activity of Starware.Toolbar can seriously slow down your computer’s performance.  It can also potentially cause your Internet browser to crash.  It also presents a potential privacy risk.  Any supposed benefits it promises are not worth compromising your computer and your privacy.

If you are infected with Starware.Toolbar, you should remove it immediately with ZookaWare PC Cleaner.
