Registered for the same reason why most people - the uTorrent toolbar and the conduit toolbar that 2.2 version sneakily installs on your PC. I am deeply disappointed. Come on, guys, I understand you need some money to run this thing, but don't be so sneaky and misleading. You know what I mean. Just make it elaborate. I recommend to all the users who want to totally get rid is the Revo Uninstaller http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html (Free version). You need to uninstall both the uTorrent toolbar and the Conduit toolbar/search engine/whatever. Then click advanced and remove all the associated registry entries and files/folders. Please note, you have to to this twice, for the utorrent toolbar and the conduit toolbar. Also, check your HijackThis log if the conduit and utorrent entries are gone. Usually, those are O2/03/R3 entries for conduit: CLSID 30F9B915-B755-4826-820B-08FBA6BD249D (look here http://www.systemlookup.com/CLSID/70651-ConduitEngin_dll_ConduitEngine_dll_ConduitEngin0_dll_ConduitEngin1_dll.html and the utorrent toolbar, the actual one, as quoted in post #10 here. Revo should get rid of those actually, but if not, check against them in HijackThis and remove, or remove manually. Conduit is known to have some tracking functions and anyway who wants to get some toolbars unsolicited way? Disappointing that this happens.
