A Browser Helper Object or BHO is a helper program that is associated with the Internet Explorer browser. Many BHOs are very useful; however, a growing number of BHOs are installed by dangerous programs like spyware or adware. Some of these BHOs may be running on your PC without your knowledge.

Toolbar Add-Ons are frequently promoted as offering added convenience and functionality. Yet, with increasing frequency, malicious Toolbar Add-Ons are being installed by spyware and adware to drive traffic to questionable sites.
