    Worked VERY well! I tried to install a program but it was kinda fake so it installed many adware and my antivirus spammed my PC with msgs like “Virus Blocked”, but it didn’t block/find the adwares…….

    So this program really helped me out and deinstalled like 15 of them!

  42. Andre' Strydom says

    I have to check to see if it worked. If it did it would be great, thank u.

    A thousand thanks, will reccomend everywhere I go!

  180. Gretchen says

    I’m so grateful to be recovering from this attack of “Webssite-itis” – I really appreciate your assistance: it was driving me nuts. I’ve had a bit of an epidemic – I had to cancel one of my bank account cards during the weekend, not as though there was much in the account in the first place! As you now have my email address, would you send me a reminder email in about a fortnight that I need to make a donation. (I don’t mind starving for a few days … but I’d hate my 2 Labs to be forced into a fast). I’ll make a note in my diary anyway.

    Thanks again!

    Hi guys,
    T hanks for developing this piece of software-to be honest, I wasn’t really expecting into work! It is clean, simple and fantastic. It has removed several pieces of malware and ad ware and search engines that I wasn’t even looking for! It works well, and has removed all the registry entries which would have taken me a long time to find (if I ever found in the first place).

    I would happily recommend this software to everyone, and will.


  200. Jim E. says

  206. Mayur says

    Thanks a lot for your help.. It really worked… Big Thanks..

  207. dcp123 says

    Well, it removed traces of Conduit’s PUP/Malware that other tools missed with only modest attempts to remove innocuous material, but after I ran it, all of my tabs and tab groups, which are set to open when I open Firefox, are gone. All options to restore previous sessions are greyed-out. This is a nightmare for me.

  208. DaveL says

    Thank you! Easy, no hassle and it worked great when Norton, etc. didn’t.

  209. Bill Cooke says

    I spent some hours and many programs trying to remove the Trovit/Conduit nuisance from my system. This is the only program to succeed. I thought ADW had worked but it cam back on a restart. If it doe not reappear in a few days, I will be happy to donate.

  210. Necie says

    Would definitely make a donation soon towards this awesome freeware.

  213. Renato says

    It was a nightmare having so many adwares bombarding my PC… I tried so many ways to get rid of all of them but they kept coming back. So I installed this software and it managed to solve all my problems… 😀 The money I though I would have to spend paying to someone to fix my computer for me, I gladly donated … Nice job, mate!!

  214. Gwenie says

    Thank you so much for taking care of my PC’s aggravating searchconduit problem.

  215. Jean says

  216. Basil Miller says

    Thank you for Aware Removal that removed Conduit Search from my Win 7 Pro Desktop PC, and Win 7 Home Premium Laptop PC, and Win XP Pro desktop PC. Thanks again!

  217. Oscar says

    This software actually genuinely saved my computer. Due to some issues with downloading educational software I ended up with a notorious piece of adware on my laptop and tried malwarebytes, which disappointingly didn’t work. Six days later a friend sent me a link to this software and all my problems are solved.
    Word of warning though, 179 of the files it wanted to delete were DLC packs but even though I spent five minutes unticking each one I couldn’t be happier with this software.
    Will donate as soon as my film career kicks off, promise!

  218. Johna654 says

    Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!

    Downloaded your ad-ware removal tool worked great thank you. looking forward for more computer repair software in the future. Thanks for your help will make a donation also.

  241. Jeff says

    WOW! I have to say, this tool has saved me so many headaches so far. As the only one in the family that is halfway decent with PC’s… I get all sorts of odd requests from friends and family members, everything from simple scans to child proofing machines. This tool is going to become my GOTO for all of those pesky browser addons that drive me crazy. I have some family members who play “free games” on the internet and without fail they get conduit or some other junk… I can direct them to run this over the phone and save myself a trip.

  242. Amit says

    Thanks it worked on second pass

  243. leslie owen says

    used product on my 3 computers. Appears to work fine at this time. I will however reserve further comment for a few days in order to make sure I do not find any adverse affects,

  244. Lauren says

    It still wont let me rename Web Data to Web Data.old, it says they action cant be completed because the file is still open in Google Chrome. Help!

    1. Techexpert says

      Hi Laugen, It won’t allow you to rename becasue google chrome is still running in the background so we recommend you to please reboot your computer once and then rename this file. Do not start Google Chrome with out until rename process is done.

  254. Luke says

    This is a fantastic program. I have removed this hijacker several times in the past from other peoples computers and it is always an absolute pain in the ass. Your little app did it to three computers in less time then it would take me to manually remove it from one. Well done!

  255. Victor says

    Awsome; conduit was a real pain!!

  256. il-hater says

    Thank you for tutorial. Conduit is an israeli company (how surprizing!). Someone please kill founders : Ronen Shilo, Dror Erez, Gaby Blicyzk. Someone please kill their famillies too. Someone please kill Conduit employees as well as their families.

  257. DR says

    Perfect tool! Took hardly 10 mins to remove all malwares from my system. Great work….

  258. DR says

    Thank you! Works really fine 🙂
    And thank you for the explanation

  261. Madhur says

    Thanks so much for the solution. Though I am yet to clean up the folders and other registry enteries, but this worked for me.

    Also, there is a Trovi Search add on (under Seach Providers and registry) that should be removed to get rid of Conduit Search.

  262. Michael Bolton says

    I followed your manual deletion instructions and eventually the Search.Conduit search bar finally went away when I use Firefox and Chrome where it was populating. I believe I got it along with a Firefox or Chrome update, or possibly from Bing. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and helping me (us).

    1. Techexpert says

      No, it doesn’t come from browser’s update it usually comes from when you are installing unknown program into your computer. It usually downloaded by mistake from 3rd party downloading website. Anyways, we have been developed a tool that will remove conduit search automatically from your computer. Click here to download: Download Adware Removal Tool

      Let us know if doesn’t work.

  263. Herceles says

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! This Conduit thing has been bugging me for some time… and now it’s gone thanks to your invaluable help!!
    Great work guys, keep it up… the internet world thanks you!! 🙂

  264. Lew Lambros says

    Really worked. Very good. Seemed to work 100%.

  265. mike l says

    thanx 4 the help,,have done all the above,,,but when i go to programs and uninstall, it never does,,,the process never finishes…so conduit is always in programs

    1. Techexpert says

      You can uninstall “Conduit” through Revo uninstaller tool from control panel–>>programs and uninstall. REVO removes them forcefully. Click here to download Revo Uninstaller tool

  266. Froghair says

    I followed the instructions to the letter and the words search.conduit were never found throughout the entire process. When I X out of Firefox or Chrome, the Search.Conduit search tab remains and the Search screen then opens. I followed this same process yesterday on my desktop and did find instances of search.conduit and thought I had removed it, however, today it is still there when I open Firefox or Chrome. Any ideas?

    1. Techexpert says

      Yes, We recommend you to remove all the traces which is related to string “conduit” not “Search.conduit”. We also recommend you our Fixit tool “Adware Removal Tool v3.9” which will remove this Conduit Search automatically.

  267. Marinelle Szenasy says

    Thanks for helping me clean up some nastiness off my hubby’s computer!

  268. Art says

    Thanks so much for the instructions. I called up my ISP and they recommended I take my computer to a professional to get the virus out but I found this site and followed the instructions. I am using Firefox and it seems that the “Add on” extensions might have been giving me the problems.
    How’s my computer? SO FAR, SO GOOD!
    Thanks again.

  269. gui says

  278. Kimi says

    I just wanna say…thank you so much!

  279. Polly says

    I followed removal steps and now my computer has many other important things missing… like the ability to connect to the internet! It no longer realizes that it has wireless capability, will not connect with the cable to the modem, and no longer has the ability to play sounds. Not sure what else is gone, but this is bad stuff! What happened?

    1. Techexpert says

  282. Kenneth says

    Using your software I successfully got rid of the evil conduit.search on my Windows machine (and made a small contribution in appreciation). Now it has infected my Mac. Is there a corresponding tool for the Mac.

    1. Techexpert says

      Kenneth, We’ll help you to remove “Conduit” from MAC as well. This fixit tool is not for MAC but we can give you manual instruction to remove it. So please tell me, which browser do you have that conduit search ?

  283. Patric` says

  290. Cassi says

    I’m also unable to delete the BackgroundContainer.dll because the file is open in Windows host process (Rundll32)….

    1. Techexpert says

      Why you don’t use our Autofixit tool, because it will remove it automatically.
      If you do it manually, there are lots of thing which you have to do. First thing you have to kill Rundll32 process then kill all the other related processes and then re-permit BackgroundContainer.dll file and then remove it from computer startup and then remove it after reboot. Then it will able to remove.
      Use our tool “Adware removal tool v3.8”. (It’s a freeware tool) to do all that automatically.

      Reply us for any question.

  291. Cassi says

    I’m finding so many things related to conduit after seeing your page!

    It’s also tied to WiseConvert B Toolbar, which the control panel isn’t letting me uninstall.

    1. Techexpert says

      Use Revo uninstaller to remove which program which is not letting you to uninstall itself.

  292. Nessa says

    Thank you so much! This helped a lot, really

  293. brandon says

    cant find conduit in my control panel, im so frustrated and cant remove this damn program any help is apreciated

    1. Techexpert says

      Run our fixit tool (Adware Removal Tool v3.8) to remove conduit from computer.
      Please leave your feedback here after use our tool.


  294. David says

    What can I say? It worked perfectly, removing conduit completely. Easy to use, no fuss. Brilliant.

  295. Pam says

    Great tool! Finally got rid of search conduit and zen search. Thank you so much.

  296. Bonnie Cochran says

    Thanks so much for helping me with my computer

  297. Lynne says

    Thank you SO much! I love AdwCleaner – but although it was finding three (yep – count ’em: 3!!) unwanted search bars, it wasn’t getting rid of them. Chrome wasn’t translating the French to English on the support page, and almost everyone was saying to just use AdwCleaner (felt as though I was on a merry-go-round). Was able to get rid of the Ask & Aol search engines but the Conduit stubbornly stayed there!

    I’m not much of a techie – I really appreciate your clear, easy to understand (and implement) suggestions. Was finally able to get rid of the hidden Conduit because of this page! Whew – finally!

  298. bob says

    Program and instructions very helpful

  299. bob says

    all was good ty

  300. Simi says

    Thank you so much!

  301. Teri says

    Copy these directions because you will lose it when you restart your computer

    and I have needed to use this twice this month. Aviod Cnet downloads!

    First do a traditional uninstall from the Control Panel.
    Restart the computer
    Open a tab then go to google.com (or anywhere really)
    Copy the entire address bar.
    Then in the url window, type; “about:conduit.”
    CTRL F ” conduit ”
    Right click each of the 10-15 entries with “Conduit” referenced within and

    select “reset.”
    There is one entry that has an adrress in it so CTRL C to change it to Google.
    Close you browser window and reopen.

    1. Alisha says

      I’m printing these out! 🙂

  302. Brian says

    It took my a while to manually delete the keys after uninstall did not remove everything. After all attempts I just downloaded your adware removal tool- and it worked far better than anything I have used in the past.

    Thank you very much for the support!

  303. Toby says

    Hi! I simply used my system-recovery from the day (or the last time the computer did it automatically) before I installed (when i was not aware of it) it. It simply worked for me and took me 2min to reboot my system and Good Bye Conduit. Good Luck! Mr. T.

  304. Avinash says

    Great work guys for preparing such a detailed document.
    Really appreciate it.
    Thanks a lot.

  305. Justin says

    I was an idiot and got hacked by the conduit search… I ran this program and it got rid of it! I did not do the same thing again that got myself hacked but today it came back after three days.. hopefully it keeps it away this time..

  306. Troy says

    Thanks a lot
    You people really did a good job. I successfully removed conduit from my system which was really a big headache but under registry i can see that Conduit folder as Key is there but there was nothing to show under Values for Conduit, only some other junk values. Can I delete Conduit Folder (as Key) in registry?
    Thanks again

    1. Techexpert says

      Yes, you can delete the parent folder if it have contained “conduit” in key, value, value data.

  314. Lionman says

  323. Jinx says

    OK you can edit chrome “preferences” in notepad then set to “read only”. To achieve a full fix. NOTE preferences and change all the html addresses from conduit to MSN Google etc. ALSO alt-ctrl-f “conduit” then find next it can all be done in 2 minutes.

  324. Jinx says

    Or you can delete the Google chrome preferences file. Run a search on C:\ for Preferences delete the notepad for chrome. 10 sec fix. Although your not going to get anything but Google.com when you open the browser – I like to dual MSN and Google 🙂 ALSO PREFERENCES IS HIDDEN IN ITS OWN ARCHIVE ! one must search.

  328. D,Ramachandra says

    I could successfully remove the conduit from IE and Google Chrome following your guided steps. But when I came to removal of conduit from the Registry then the result of search of the conduit string is nothing. the search result tells it finished search so I clicked OK. Does it mean that I menacing conduit did not enter my registry?

    1. Techexpert says

      Yes, It means conduit is not remains into your registry but not that mean the conduit did not enter into your computer, your registry may got cleaned by another tool that’s why this time you did not seen any entry of conduit into your registry.

      1. D,Ramachandra says

        I thank you and your team for your research and expertise in getting rid of the menace called ‘search conduit’ for your excellent step by step guidance. But for your lucid step by step procedure I could not have restored Google search back as home page. Keep up your good work

  329. D,Ramachandra says

    I followed your steps and could successfully till the Registry clearance level. Here I followed all the steps as per your guidance. In In the Registry Edit window. I clicked Edit menu, and when the find box appeared I typed in the Find box search.condui then clicked on Find next. It took some time to search and result window appeared to tell that it has finished search. No files or folders with the conduit string appeared. What can I do? I clicked OK. Does it mean the menacing conduit did not enter into my Registry?

  330. Peter Senn says

    Wow! Amazing! This worked and no one tried to sell me anything! After a year of putting up with search conduit and its similar friends, it was as though you folks guided me to make surgical strikes and obliterate this disease. My partner thinks I’m a hero. We’re talking second honeymoon here! Merci, Thank You and Gracias!

  331. Leo says

    THANK YOU SO MUCH, this programme is effective and free thank you so much really i couldn’t be more satisfied, your service is amazing !

  332. Carol says

    I got rid of Conduit after I had tried many other ad and malware removal programs, some free and some paid. My next step was to have my computer reformatted. Thanks so much for this site!

  333. Carol says

    I just wanted to say a personal thanks to you and your team for this site. I got Conduit in my computer and tried for days to remove it. I am not a tech expert so this was very difficult for me. Your removal tool worked! I have saved this site and am recommending it to everyone I know. Thanks Again!

    Hi, I just want to thank you for solving a huge headache I’ve been having with conduit search. It affected my outlook. You guys are a Godsend!

    1. Julie says

      Same here. Conduit search was everywhere, and I could not get rid of it. You guys removed it. Thank you dearly.
      It’s too bad that there is a need for software to correct the wrong that others have done.

  337. Asif says

    Its great, You are the best. I tried everything but did not work. But you solve a lot of problems I had

  338. Zee says

    That is a legit process! I was little bit skeptical trusting these steps. Especially downlowding another exe. file! However, i took the risk and im glad i did! It worked perfectly. Now everything is back to normal. ty

  339. andy wrob says

    Thank you so much for this, awesome, it worked finally after hours and hours trying to self work out how to remove damned search protect/Software Watcher Bundle/Websteroids/Search Protect by Conduit/Conduit.exe/AutoKMS.exe/random.exe all of which keep coming back.Most annoying on IE and GOOGLE Chrome which insisted on space ship objects and games while trying to browse and many words on internet pages being underlined. the problem started because I wanted to download OPERA which is one AMAZING explorer, and I stupidly did not go to the official OPERA website, so in the end, obtained a hacked version of it which contained all this extra spyware which made surfing the web impossible on ANY explorer. Thank you again it has worked and destroyed the spyware which winds itself round your system. AVG and SUPERantiSPYWARE were unable to remove it, but your two apps ADWCLEANER.exe and ADWARE-REMOVAL-TOOL-v3.7.exe worked a treat. Thank you again ANDY WROB

  340. Mimi says

  357. Thx says

    At the, “as per your OS” part, when I type it in the Run command, it says
    “Windows cannot find as”

    1. Techexpert says

      You can simply explore that location from “mycomputer”.

      Open the following location if the computer is windows xp.
      c:\documents & settings\”username”\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
      Open the following location if the computer is windows 7,8,vista.
      c:\users\”username”\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

      Please revert for any help.

      1. Chris says

        Hey, I’m having the same problem with the Run Box. It says the same thing it will not recognize “as” or”per”.

        1. Techexpert says

          Please try in this way. We have corrected the information in the article as well.

          For windows xp: Copy and Paste this following command: “%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default” in Run box then click on OK button. You’ll get open a Google chrome profile location in windows explorer.
          For windows 7,8,vista: Copy and Paste this following command: “%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default” in Run box then click on OK button. You’ll get open a Google chrome profile location in windows explorer.
          In the default folder location, Rename a file named as “Preferences“ to “Preferences.old“
          In the same default folder location, Rename one more file named as “Web Data“ to “Web Data.old“
          Now your Google Chrome has been Restored to default settings.

  370. George Smith says

    Super Tool, Thanks forcoming up with this great tool. It a blessing to be free of those pop-ups.

  371. Carol Crom says

    Thanks for the information. I am now keeping a log of when conduit tries to install. Hopefully, that will give some insight into what they are doing. When conduit tries to install, I am always in the process of reading some reference that I have Googled. Conduit never tries to load when I first open the reference. But when it tries to install, it tries under many different names, sometimes several hundred different names, but all the names have “conduit” in the name. I only use Google Chrome for a browser. I am a retired electrical engineer and most of the material I look at on line is technical material of some sort. Most of the material is energy related.

    My wife has her own computer and she uses the internet more than I do, but she generally looks at different kind of material than I looks mostly at different material than I. She has never had a conduit attack.

  384. Carol Crom says

    I keep running your Removal tool 3.8 version. It finds suspected conduit caontminated files. But about once a week conduit tries to install again. I hae Avanquest Fixit Professional utilities and antifirus software and it does not let the condiut files install. However keeps coming back and tries to install usually under about 200 or more different file names.

    1. Techexpert says

      Thank you Carol for your valuable feedback. Actually our tool is just a cleaner, and it is not protecting you to install that again. So it may be possible that adware again try to install on your computer with some different name. We are in the developing stage to protect you real-time to protect you from installing these again.

  396. Robert says

    I tried a little bit of everything to get rid of Conduit. No results when I scanned with Super and MBAM.Used Ccleaner on cache and registry after which I ran MBAM and 4 items were found at first. With full scan still running a MBAM popup informed me an attack was blocked. Scan continued to find 7 more items. As soon as I clicked to remove, my AV blocked another attack but when I opened Firefox Conduit did not show.

    Of course this morning it’s BACK!

    Used your removal tool per instructions and I am very happy to report no more Conduit!

  397. Angelo says

    The Advent removal tool went smoothly ,but I used the Spy Hunter 4 to check if it cleared all the virus and threats but it did not…I ALSO GET A LOT OF ADS… and the conduit search is still there!?!?

    well done

  401. Ianw says

    Agreed, this is poor advice, I ended up with search conduit follow a reccomendation on this site for free cd-burning software. Having tried all this advice, more toolbars, not less


    1. Techexpert says

      Dear sir, It is due to the adware installed on your system and not from our site.

  402. Spyro says

    I also tried all manual possible solutions you suggest

    and I also used Adware-Removal-Tool-V3.7

    but also the following programms


    NOTHING helps I cannot remove from my computer I am totaly irritated from this
    softonic conduit virus. I despice them.
    The only programm I installed on my computer was ADblock plus from softonic. A
    Everybody suggests that this is a good programm BUT IT IS NOT when a ad blocking programm installs ads in your computer.

    1. Techexpert says

      First you need to uninstall Softsonic then run our tool. Please follow my instruction listed below.
      Please try it in this way.
      Step 1. You need to Uninstall Softsonic program from Control Panel & Softsonic word from Registry as well.
      Step 2. Download and Run our Fixit tool (Adware Removal Tool).
      Step 3. Run a scan with Hitman pro (Anti-Malware) for final Check. (Delete all the Adwares if it find any.) click here to download Hitman Pro 32 bits / Hitman Pro 64 bits

      That’s it. Let me know again if doesn’t fix.

  403. jocelyn says

    So I did the registry editor for internet explorer and now its saying finished searching through the registry what do I do because I cant do the next step ?

  404. mahira says

    All these suggestions are bulllshit.. Sorry for the language but I have done everything each website suggested. and nothing gets the B$%#*^ conduit out of my computer. I have run scans. malwarebytes and then hit man, uninstalled conduit from control pannel and bing., changed setting on the browser. nothng!! has helped me get rid of it. IF someone really has a solution that has been identified and proven to have worked, post it then, don’t guess cos to be honest its even more frustrating ! AND CHROME, — don’t understand, microsoft charges us for all these bloody licences and what not hence, can’t get conduit out of our bloody browsers!

    1. Techexpert says

      Please try following Tool, This will definitely help you to remove “Conduit”.

  411. Abid says

    Very Lovely tool, Removing the stupid “Conduit” made me sick.

  412. kwb says

    Thanks for your help.
    FYI, when I went to ADD/REMOVE I did not see “Conduit” but I found “Search Protect” that had the conduit url – and the date was correct for being a problem. I removed that and it seems to have worked.

    Thank you again for your help, this was the best information I found in my search.

  413. Susan says

    if this is any help …It was after I downloaded cc cleaner with Piriform that this Conduit thing appeared in my laptop

  414. Susan says

    I used the tool and it appeared to work with my Google Chrome and Internet Explorer but after I checked emails on Mozilla Thunderbird and returned to browse it was there again

  415. LED says

    Worked well for me. Well explained and effective. Much thanks.

  416. Wim says

    On Reset Google Chrome: the command needed is different on my system:
    “C:\Users\Nedpc\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Profile 1”
    (Win7 64 bit, Chrome 31.0.1650.63 m)

  417. Wim says

    Very helpfull. For Chrome: the preferences file is the cause. See the value of the field urls_to_restore_on_startup!

  418. Teresa says

    did not remove conduit nor any others I have

    1. Techexpert says

      Please try it in this way.

      Step1. Uninstall Conduit from Control Panel, If it won’t allow to uninstall Conduit itself from control panel then uninstall it thru Revo Uninstall Tool Download:- REVO Uninstaller Tool
      Step 2. Run a scan with Adwcleaner (Anti-Adware) for deleting the registry entries of Conduit. click here to download Adwcleaner – Adware cleaner

      That’s it. Let me know if doesn’t work this one.

  419. Sam Tsai says

  421. Tim says

    I had been dealing with this tool bar situation for over two years and finally I was determined to find a fix. It had gotten worse and worse, slowing my system down more and more and it was even taking control over links on sites I would go to. This fix worked like a dream.
    To the people of: Techsupportall.com
    What you are doing in your works for people out there is very honorable. Thank you. Proverbs 3:27: Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is your power to act.
    You don’t owe people anything and yet you help anyway. People like yourselves are the hope of the world.

  422. Grace says

    Thank you so much for your support. Helped. Had to do several steps, not just one, but eventually got rid of it. Really appreciate it.

  423. Tony says

    Thanks for this great help. It worked for me.

  424. Roy says

    THANKS! After using your tool I stopped getting redirected to http://www.conduit.com everytime I opened a new tab and I found no trace of the word “conduit” in my registry or in “about:config” settings for Firefox. BTW I got infected by foolishly ignoring warnings from Malwarebytes and http://www.VirusTotal.com about the file “SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe” which installed ImgBurn CD/DVD burner along with this unwanted & frustrating adware.
    I’ll be sending you a token of my appreciation thru PP, but you deserve a lot more than I can send right now.

  425. Jaff says

    Hooray ! Thank you for you help !

  426. rao says

    Finally! Thanks for having the solutions for all the browsers in one place. But I need to figure out what actually installed conduit in the first place.

  428. clarence drain says

    I found a simple cure for removal of conduit: Back up your computer one day before you uploaded conduit then you can delete the file stored on computer hard disk drive. Try this & let me know if this will work. thanks!
