Description: a desktop search toolbar that displays links to advertised offers in response to users' surfing behavior and opens paid search results when users perform searches through the toolbar's search mechanism.

More recent versions of the WhenUSearch toolbar also install WhenU's UControl anti-spyware program. (http://www.whenu.com/products_whenusearch_la.html) The WhenUSearch toolbar has been re-skinned to produce "co-branded" versions of the toolbar for certain distribution partners and for WhenU's own PriceBandit toolbar (http://www.pricebandit.com / http://www.pbtoolbar.com).

The WhenUSearch desktop toolbar displays links to advertised offers in response to users' web surfing. These text links are restricted to the toolbar itself and are generally discrete, occasionally rotating if there are multiple related text link advertisements available. Users can click these text links to open more detailed descriptions of the advertised offers. This functionality is described in the WhenUSearch EULA. (http://www.whenu.com/products_whenusearch_la.html)

The WhenUSearch desktop toolbar opens paid (sponsored) search results from Overture
(syndicated through Infospace.com) when users use the toolbar's search facility. WhenUSearch also displays text links in the toolbar based on users' search engine queries.
