The Vuze Toolbar we tall about here is not the popular torrenting client software named as Vuze, but a browser add-on with search engine feature. It promotes itself as offering video search feature. Once installed, Vuze Toolbar will change the browser settings and prevent itself from being deleted easily. That is why so many people find it is hard to get rid of the toolbar completely. The toolbar can also be installed in a deceptive way such as bundling with other programs. No matter you install it by accident or on purpose, it is recommended to remove it from the pc. Vuze Toolbar is detected to collect browser data such as search enquiries and passwords. With the collected information, the add-on may display malicious ads you may be interested in or give related websites higher rank when you use a search engine. It also increases the possibility that other threats access the vulnerable computer. So take action to remove Vuze Toolbar from your computer now.

How to uninstall Vuze Toolbar effectively
Some web browsers like Chrome provide built-in uninstall function to delete an add-on, but it is usually useless for a malicious toolbar. Even disabling the add-on is not enough to stop it from damaging the computer system and protect personal information. Trying a third party uninstaller software like Perfect Uninstaller is one of the solutions. And there are two other common ways to get rid of Vuze Toolbar.

Manual removal
To remove the malicious add-on by yourself you do not need any help from any program but you need to have advanced pc skills or at least you won’t damage the computer mistakenly. Following are files of Vuze Toolbar and you need to remove all of them. Some of the files are running on the background and should be stopped first via task manager while some are dll files and should be unregistered first.

%ProgramFiles%\Vuze\VuzeToolbarHelper.exe
%ProgramFiles%\Vuze\ldrtbVuze.dll
%AppData%\Vuze\ldrtbVuze.dll
%AppData%\Vuze\tbVuze.dll
%AppData%\Conduit\CT1609479\VuzeAutoUpdateHelper.exe
%Temp%\tbedrs.dll

You’d better run registry editor and clean up registry entries added by Vuze Toolbar when it’s installed.

Automatic way
To delete the unwanted add-on automatically, you need the help from a specialized virus removal program. Most important is to equip your computer with a virus removal program which has detection on Vuze Toolbar. Such software can pick up associated files and registry entries after a full scan.
