Watch out from Conduit software

A word of warning. If you use DivX to view videos [as well as some other free software], it installs Conduit search software.

Conduit takes over your search engine and default home page in your web browser(s).

In Programs and Features it may be listed as “Conduit Search Protect” or “Search Protect by Conduit”. If you see it, uninstall and then use some antic-malware software to remove remnants.

Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware software considers it as [a form of] malware. Additionally, if you use your favourite search engine, do a search on the keywords “is conduit malware”.
