Type: Adware
Also Known As: SearchBlaster SBar
Created By: New York Internet Media
Danger Level: 1
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 providing search features.
Information URL: http://www.wazam.com
Manual Removal: Look for the Wazam.com folder in Program Files. For the variant distributed with IconForge this may be in 'C:\Program Files\CursorArts\IconForge\Wazam.com Toolbar'. This path may vary for different drives, Windows installation languages and variants of Wazam, so if yours is different you will have to change the command below to match.

Open a DOS command prompt window (from the Start Menu, choose the 'Accessories' submenu in 'Programs' to find this), and enter the following commands:

cd "%WinDir%\System"
regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\CursorArts\IconForge\Wazam.com Toolbar\SBar.dll"
Restart Windows and you should be able to delete the entire Wazam.com folder. You can also delete the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SBB to clean up if you wish.
