Your homepage has been changed and your searching results have been redirected to search.conduit.com?? It seems so much similar to a browser hijacker virus that many people do discuss about this around. I mean forums as well as some virus removal blogs. However, you have right to get the truth about this.
To be concise, search.comduit.com is actually an online search engine from Conduit Software regardless that it makes many users frustrating because its toolbar makes unauthorized changes to the web browser settings. This Browser Helper Object is usually accessed through a toolbar for the web browser, and in most cases, users are unknown when they install this, so no wonder that it appears so much like a browser hijacker or redirect virus.
