    "installs toolbar whether you allow or disallow"

    June 29, 2012  |   By tremely2


    Quick download. Doesn't slow the download until you buy a "pro" version. Downloaded and converted in one step.


    I made sure I unchecked all the extra crap it asked for permission to install. However, next time I started my computer, the IB toolbar was in internet explorer, and Firefox gave me messages that an add-on was trying to do something. When I looked at the ad-on list, the IB toolbar was there.


    It did what I needed it to do, but I just can't trust software that pretends to give you the option to install add-ons, only to install them anyway. I am currently scanning my system.

    Update: I was able to uninstall the IB toolbar from both browsers. A virus and spyware scan found no threats.
