Remove Certified Toolbar Virus

Certified Toolbar is a malicious redirection virus and browser hijacker that modifies your browser homepage, default search engine and causes redirects of webpages.

Search.certified-toolbar.com may look like a legitimate website created to assist users with their search sessions. However, security experts and malware researchers started to classify this threat as browser hijacker due to its constant redirections to potentially unwanted websites.

Once installed, Certified Toolbar changes your DNS settings and hijacks the main browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox. That results in continuous redirections to domain search.certified-toolbar.com. This browser hijacker virus is spread by using spam e-mail attachments, freeware or shareware programs.
