Your homepage has been changed and your searching results have been constantly redirected to search.conduit.com? Read this post to fix this issue.

Till now there have been no reports that either the http://search.conduit.com or search.conduit toolbar has any malicious incidents, extra installs and any progressions. Thus when it comes to the conclusion, search.conduit.com is non-malicious hijacker, or rather browser object helper, but does behave annoying to some users.
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.
