ToolbarCC Spyware Profile

ToolbarCC is a spyware data miner and Browser Hijacker disguised as a toolbar browser add-on.  It was first discovered on January 2 of 2004.  It is installed without your knowledge or consent.

ToolbarCC, like other toolbar spyware and adware programs, pretends to offer enhanced search results and instant-click access to certain websites.  In this case, they all point to http://www. /, which collects your information and redirects you to another page.

Thanks to the Google toolbar, the ability to do web page searches from any website is already possible.  By and large, the instant access by clicking on a button is pointless.  That is, unless you’re interested in online gambling and shopping.  The caveat here is that these sponsored websites are possibly fraudulent.

Besides the basic uselessness of this program, it also collects information on your browsing habits and the web pages you visit.  It does this by keystroke logging and doing screen captures while you’re surfing the Internet.  This presents a serious threat to your privacy, since it’s possible to capture credit card and login information this way.

ToolbarCC also runs several invisible processes.  This activity seriously slows down your computer’s performance speed and causes system instability.  It uses an inordinate amount of your computer’s resources by doing this, and it can lead to system crashes.

If you’re infected with ToolbarCC, you should remove it immediately.  It presents a serious threat to your computer’s functionality and can violate your privacy.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner is highly recommended to deal with this threat.
