NewDotNet software serves as an access point to Web sites sponsored by New.net, Inc. The software enables a Web browser to connect to New.net-sponsored Web sites when valid abbreviations of New.net-sponsored URLs are entered in the browser address bar. NewDotNet also installs the Quick! Toolbar, a browser helper object (BHO) that presents a list of New.net-sponsored Web sites based on search keywords, mistyped URLs, or invalid URLs that a user enters in a browser address bar.
After it is installed, NewDotNet may install updates and other programs automatically. NewDotNet may integrate as a Winsock layered service provider (LSP); improper removal of NewDotNet can therefore cause loss of Internet connectivity.
