Feed.helperbar.com Description

Feed.helperbar.com is a search site that redirects all searches to Isearch.babylon.com, another site that SpywareRemove.com malware experts long have associated with browser hijackers and Potentially Unwanted Programs (the latter in the form of browser add-ons). Like other Babylon affiliates, Feed.helperbar.com is not an extreme threat to your PC’s safety, but software linked to Feed.helperbar.com usually should be distrusted and removed as soon as you find it convenient to do so. In situations where your browser loads Feed.helperbar.com or locks to Feed.helperbar.com in undesirable circumstances, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts find it most efficacious to use anti-malware products to find and delete all browser hijackers related to Feed.helperbar.com.

The Helper’s that Feed.helperbar.com Has to ‘Encourage’ Your Visits

Feed.helperbar.com is one of quite a few sites associated with the Babylon translation tool and related search sites, placing Feed.helperbar.com in the less-than-reputable company of browser hijackers, Potentially Unwanted Programs (or PUPs) and adware. In an interesting case of minimal effort for maximum gain, Feed.helperbar.com’s website administrators haven’t even bothered to fill its base domain with any meaningful content, resulting in Feed.helperbar.com being a web search-based sub-domain that requires promotion from external sources.

So far, these external sources appear to take the format of browser hijackers that redirect your searches to Feed.helperbar.com, set your homepage to Feed.helperbar.com and engage in similar Feed.helperbar.com-promoting browser attacks.

As an extension of the Babylon campaign, SpywareRemove.com malware experts consider any potential infections from Feed.helperbar.com to be trivial dangers, but still suggest that you take all appropriate browser-based precautions against attacks by Feed.helperbar.com or Helperbar.com.
