Conduit is a browser hijacker, which is promoted via other free downloads, and once installed it will add the Conduit Toolbar, and change your browser homepage and default search engine to search.conduit.com.
Although Conduit is pretty harmless it is very annoying and we'll show you how to easily remove it. Spy Hunter is the tool we'd recommend to easily get rid of Conduit once and for all. Manual removable can be tricky and often times does not result in 100% removal.

Turn off autoscan on system startup
The default setting on SpyHunter is to run a full scan upon system startup. You may not want to do this as it takes some time to run a scan and it can be annoying especially if you reboot your pc fairly often. You can change the settings under the 'Settings' section in SpyHunter by unchecking the 'Start SpyHunter Security Suite on system startup'
Enable System Guard
SpyHunter can help prevent future spyware infection by blocking malicious programs. We highly recommend you enable the system guard feature. To do this click on 'System Guards' in the SpyHunter program and select Malware and Threat Items.
