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: SCBar is a pop-up-opening toolbar and a search- and error-hijacker.

Scbar's code is a descendant of the NetworkEssentials parasite.

Scbar can download and execute arbitrary code when directed by its controlling server.
