Conduit

Is there a free program that will uninstall this browser hijacker Conduit? I know what it does a harmful program.

If anyone can find a specific tool to remove it, I would be so happy.

Tried Following The Instructions Here?

The thread in the link below discusses this issue at length.. Because the Conduit problem is a browser add-on, make sure to remove that particular add-on from each of your browsers.. There are free tools such as Malwarebytes, SuperAntispyware, and Hitman Pro which will do the job as well, but you'll still want to remove those add-ons and uninstall it if it resides in "Add/Remove Programs" (Programs and Features).

Hope this helps.

I too am having trouble deleting this intrusive program. I have done all steps like resetting each browser, using Avast to try to delete but still on startup getting the .dll popups. Beware downloading anything from cnet in future...

Unsure if Avast will help on this one.

That's news to me. I think I'd take the vast advice from Grif next.
