Full Name:
Type: Adware
Created By: Gigatech Software
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: SuperBar is an IE toolbar offering search and form-filling features.
Adds links to the results of other search engines, dressed up to look as if they come from the search engine itself; in fact they are from the site greasycow.com.

Comment: The software can download and execute arbitrary code silently from its controlling servers. The SuperBar licence includes a clause stating that third-party software may be installed through this mechanism.

From the EULA:
You acknowledge that "Gigatech Software" may, at their sole discretion and for any purpose, provide updates, automatic or otherwise, to the "SuperBar" Program(s) (including but not limited to the advertising or other value-added software and technology described in paragraph 4, below); by your use of the "SuperBar" Program(s) you acknowledge your desire to receive these updates.
