Full Name:
Type: Adware
Also Known As: ezSearchBar EZ Search bar ezCyberSearch ezCyberSearch.B
Created By: ezCyberSearch.com
Danger Level: 2
Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Official Description: An IE toolbar. Its contents are loaded from a page at ezcybersearch.com each time a new Internet Explorer window is opened, and may include link buttons and a search field.
Comment: Linked to EZCyberSearch.com, 50cents.com, 50centlyrics.com. And probably to CoolWebSearch because it has turned lilac in colour. It was always related to AllCyberSearch, GoCyberSearch and TinyBar, which now all have gone over to CoolWebSearch.

To clean up you can delete the 'ezsearch.dll' file inside the System folder and the 'Inst Class' entry in the Downloaded Program Files folder (both in the Windows folder), and the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ezSearchBar if you like.
